Are You a Candidate?

Nearly anyone with an unwanted skin lesion may be a candidate for a removal procedure. Reasons you might choose lesion removal include:

  • You are self-conscious about your lesion and your appearance
  • The lesion rubs against clothing and becomes irritated
  • The mark has increased in size
  • There is a question of whether it is cancerous or will become cancerous

Lesions that change over time should always be assessed by a doctor to make sure they have not developed into cancer. No matter why you might choose to remove these imperfections, Dr. Saad will provide you with superior cosmetic results.

Options in Skin Lesion Removal

Dr. Saad may recommend different methods of removal, depending on the size and location of your mole or skin tag and your personal preference:

Laser Resurfacing

Some lesions respond well to a non-surgical treatment known as laser resurfacing. This treatment delivers laser energy into the dermal layers, removing imperfections without traumatizing surrounding skin and tissue. The procedure is quick and doesn’t usually require any anesthesia or downtime.

Surgical Excision

Excision can also be used to remove these lesions, and Dr. Saad employs techniques to minimize scarring and produce an excellent cosmetic result in the process. Surgery is usually performed using local anesthetic and patients are often able to return to their daily routine right away.

Mohs Surgery

If cancer has been diagnosed or suspected, Dr. Saad may use a technique known as Mohs surgery to remove the lesion. This procedure removes very fine layers at a time, checking each sample under a microscope to see if cancer cells are present. Once a layer is discovered without any cancer cells, the excision is carefully closed, and the procedure is over. Like other methods of surgical excision, Mohs surgery is performed using a local anesthetic, and patients don’t usually have to worry about any downtime.

Skin lesions aren’t usually a serious medical problem, but they can be unsightly and embarrassing. Rather than hiding your imperfection under clothes or makeup, contact Dr. Saad’s office to find out if lesion removal is an option for you.
