If you have a skin lesion (skin tag, mole, actinic keratosis, wart, etc.) that you wish to remove for aesthetic purposes, we are here to help. We offer scalpel, punch or cryotherapy removal methods as well as suturing for larger lesions on the neck and body. Lesions that have changed over time, have suspicious characteristics or are deemed too complex would be better addressed with one’s primary care provider or dermatologist.
Before Your Treatment
Provide a detailed and accurate medical history including medications, allergies, family history and previous aesthetic treatments/complications.
Consider the aftercare instructions/downtime as well as timeline for expected results prior to scheduling your treatment. Do not undergo aesthetic treatments right before a vacation or special event.
Avoid tanning, hair removal, sunburn and active skin care ingredients such as retinol immediately prior to treatment.
What To Expect At Your Treatment
Your provider will begin with ‘before’ photos and will review steps, expectations and instructions. The treatment area will be mapped, measured and cleansed with antiseptic. The area may be numbed with local anesthetic.
Immediately following treatment, you will experience redness and possibly some increased warmth and bleeding which typically resolves within a few hours to a few days. The treatment area will be dressed and instructions for ongoing care will be provided.
