Skin lesion is a general term used to describe a growth either on, within or just under the skin. They come in many forms and range from benign (harmless) to the malignant (cancerous). While often harmless, many choose to have skin growths removed for cosmetic reasons or to prevent future complications.
Why have skin lesion removal?
Skin tags, cysts, moles and lipomas are skin growths that are normally harmless. Quite often they are in noticeable or prominent places and this can make people feel self-conscious. Very occasionally they can cause health or functional problems , for example with skin lesions that are raised from the surface of the skin they can frequently be traumatised-catching on clothing or during shaving are a couple of common ways this happens. It’s for these sorts of reasons that many people choose to have them removed privately.
The types of skin lesion removal we perform
At the Cambridge Aesthetic Clinic, we carry out skin lesion removal on the following types of growth:
What happens during skin lesion removal?
We perform most of our skin lesion removal procedures under local anaesthetic. This numbs the area to be treated so that removal is painless. The exact technique will depend on the size and location of your lesion.
Some lesions can be removed through freezing or simply ‘snipped’ off with surgical scissors. We’ll always discuss the options with you and recommend the most appropriate one for your situation that will leave limited scarring and the best cosmetic outcome.
What happens before your treatment
We carry out a full consultation process with every patient. That gives you the chance to explain your situation, state of health and any concerns you may have about skin lesion removal.
Mr Abood will outline any concerns he has about the treatment, suggest the most appropriate solution and will provide an honest assessment of any likely aftereffects.
The advice we provide at the Cambridge Aesthetic Clinic is tailored towards each specific case, and you can be assured of a service that is in your best interests.
Our skin lesion removal service continues long after the procedure is carried out. Should you experience any pain, unexpected side effects or lesion regrowth, our team will be on hand to support and promptly answer any questions you may have.
Even when you leave our clinic, we remain with you every step of the way.
