Skin tags are small pieces of extra skin that often appear on the neck, underarms, eyelids, groin, and breast regions of the body. While they are not cancerous and seldom painful, people can find them inconvenient or uncomfortable.
Skin lesions, on the other hand, refer to any abnormality or growth that looks or feels different from the surrounding skin. Lesions may be present at birth, or they could appear over your lifetime. Because these growths can come from any number of causes, they fluctuate quite a bit in how they look and feel.
Moles are medically known as “nevi.” They are most often identified as small, dark brown spots on the skin. However, they can come in a range of colors, sizes and shapes. Moles can develop anywhere on your body, and in most cases are harmless. In certain cases, moles can become cancerous—and therefore it is important to monitor moles as an important step in the detection of skin cancer.
We take a comprehensive approach to treating skin lesions and moles, by first identifying and addressing any underlying skin health concerns of a medical nature.
Our clinic is equipped with multiple gold standard, medical grade technologies to remove most irregularities in the skin. For benign moles and lesions, we can often remove them on the same visit in just one treatment.
What treatment is best, and how many sessions you require, depends heavily on the size and location of your skin tags, lesion or mole.
If you have new or suspicious skin changes that you are worried about, we provide a prompt and detailed assessment including biopsy.
