Benign Lesion Removal

Do you have a pesky spot on your body that you’ve always wanted to eliminate? We can reduce and remove benign lesions such as moles, skin tags, cherry angiomas, and more at SKIN Clinics.

Get The Facts

Benign Lesion Removal is a non-invasive laser therapy that uses specific wavelengths to reduce the size, appearance, and depth of lesions by repairing and regenerating skin cells. We require lesions to be cleared by a physician before your consultation. Once your lesion has been diagnosed as benign, we can remove the spot using the laser.

No, as the procedure is for aesthetic reasons.

+ Will the benign lesion grow back after removal?

The chances of a benign lesion growing back after removal depend on the specific type of lesion. Some lesions, such as seborrheic keratoses, can occasionally recur. However, many benign lesions, once completely removed, do not grow back.

+ How long does it take to recover from benign lesion removal?

The recovery time varies depending on the size and location of the lesion, as well as the method of removal. In most cases, healing occurs within a few weeks, during which the wound may scab, crust, or form a small scar. Following your post-procedure instructions provided by the dermatologist or skincare professional can help promote proper healing.
