Protruding skin lesions can get in the way of shaving and bleed. Other skin lesions are annoying, get irritated or even infected when they rub against clothing or jewelry.
We treat many types of skin lesions such as skin tags, moles, minor growths, actinic keratoses, benign seborrheic keratoses, mollescum contagiosum (bumps), dermatofibromas, cherry hemangiomas (red moles), pyogenic granulomas (shiny-red raspberry-texture lumps), purpura, spider veins, flat warts (juvenile), plantar warts, and other superficial skin lesions.
Skin lesions can be persistent and may require multiple treatments to be eliminated. Even though the lesion may be diminished or “disappear” for long periods of 3-6 months, it might return in the future. Some lesions may recur (reappear) in the original location or different locations. Lesions that responded well to the initial treatment sessions and disappeared for an extended period will most likely respond to future treatments.
Many kinds of lesions can be cosmetically treated using either electrocautery (electrodesiccation) or IPL and Nd:YAG laser treatments.
We understand that skin lesions can be troubling for you in so many ways. We believe in providing you the best treatment options for your specific lesion type. Our doctor meets with you to assess your skin lesion, talk with you about the outcome you want to achieve, and customize a treatment plan for you.
