What Are Skin Lesions?
Skin Blemishes, Lumps and Bumps
Lumps, bumps, moles and other skin blemishes are common and most are regarded as cosmetic by the NHS so treatment is unavailable by that route. Anything diagnosed as an innocent, benign lesion is likely to be rejected by the NHS. The good news is that we have many years’ experience treating them safely at The Doctors Laser Clinic
Some lesions, especially pigmented one’s that are growing and changing have to be cut out by a dermatologist and put under the microscope to exclude the possibility of cancer. We can always advise if this is necessary. Safety is paramount.
There are hundreds of different skin lesions. Every patient coming to us is seen by an experienced doctor prior to treatment. Options are discussed and a cooling off period is allowed to decide on whether to go ahead or not. If necessary local or topical anaesthetic is used.
– Sun spots – also known as lentigos
– Skin tags
– Seborrhoeic warts
– Cherry spots
– Lumps and bumps
– Sebaceous hyperplasia
– Scalp cysts
– Some Pigmented & nonpigmented moles
– Seborrhoic keratosis
……and the list goes on!
How does it work?
We will usually offer local or topical anaesthetic so the experience is not unpleasant.
We have the option of two different lasers for surgery CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and Erbium. They give us the option to treat to within fractions of a millimetre accuracy meaning that damage to surrounding tissue is much less than with surgical excision, cryotherapy or cautery that is traditionally available elsewhere. The risk of scarring is substantially less as a result. The initial consultation will include a realistic assessment of the likelihood or not of scarring. The aim of course is to go for zero!
Most procedures can be completed within 30 – 60 minutes consultation time and the actual lasering is often over in a matter of minutes. We will give you aftercare instructions.
