Skin Lesions Removal
Skin lesions can show up on your skin as lumps, sores, moles or skin cancer. These lesions can cause you to become self-conscious about your appearance. These lesions also have the potential to become cancerous, which can significantly impact your health. Skin lesion removal can restore your skin so you can feel better about the way you look.
Skin Lesions Removal Procedures
There are various outpatient cosmetic procedures for skin lesion removal that are performed using local anesthesia. Surgical excisions can be performed to remove skin lesions by scraping them off the skin’s surface. The surgical techniques vary, depending on the extent of the skin lesions and the potential for skin cancer. Some lesions can be removed by shaving them off while others may require flap reconstruction or a skin graft. Cryotherapy freezes tissue to destroy it.
Normal activities can be resumed immediately after any of these procedures. Swimming and hot tubs may need to be avoided for the first month. The length of recovery will depend on the skin lesion and treatment techniques used. You will receive special aftercare instructions after the procedure to assist you with recovery.
