Over the past few months our Hampshire based Medical Aesthetic Clinic has seen a significant rise in people requesting the removal of their lumps and bumps. We suspect this is a combination of many a Zoom call – where let’s be honest, most of us spend a lot if the time peering at our own faces, critiquing what we see!
Many of us will have skin lesions on the face or body that we have wondered about removing but, do not know where to start or even if it is possible to be removed without surgery.
Well you’re in luck, they can!
Laser treatments can be used to treat and remove benign skin lesions. Lumps, bumps and benign skin lesions can occur on the face or anywhere on the body. The treatment of these lesions depends on whether they are worrying ones that may be cancerous or precancerous or just benign; non-concerning fleshy growths or moles.
Benign lumps and bumps are far more common and can be removed by laser treatment, anything else needs a dermatology assessment. If there is any doubt regarding your skin lesion, Dr Tanja will arrange an onward referral for you, your safety is our priority.
Our simple, effective lesion removal with laser treatment involves using laser energy to remove layers of the skin until the area is flush with the skin again. The depth of beam penetration can be adjusted on an individual basis to strategically destroy micro-thin layers of the lesion. It does all this without harming surrounding tissue, thereby minimising the risk of scarring.
The treated area will be red initially and may bleed a little. As it recovers it will form a scab and then once the scab goes the skin beneath will be a little pink. The pink area lasts for several weeks as the skin re-pigments to match the rest of the skin, occasionally the area left can be slightly paler than the rest of the skin.
Our patients that have had this done are delighted with their results and what better time to get this done as we are not socialising, (if you’re on a zoom call you may find that your camera doesn’t work for a few days!) and, when out and about we are wearing a mask, no-one can see whilst the skin heals!
