Perhaps you are looking to remove a lump or bump of some sort? Are you looking for a specialist clinic for mole or skin lesion removal? A skin issue that’s causing you some concern, or perhaps is affecting your confidence?

We can remove your mole, skin tag, milia, cyst, lipoma, seborrheic keratosis, xanthelasma. Many people find that due to practical or cosmetic reasons they are not covered by the NHS. Methods and prices vary depending on the size, placement and depth of the lesion. We offer same-day treatments for consultation and treatment with no long waiting lists!

Minor Skin procedures Consultation: What To Expect

A minor skin procedure is mole or skin lesion removal which may be causing you discomfort or irritation.  During your consultation, our Doctors & Practitioners will go through all aspects of the procedure and discuss the most suitable methods of removal available.  We will be able to answer any questions you may have about your minor skin condition ensuring you leave the appointment with a clear idea of how we will remove the lesion, what the recovery time will be, and cost.

Types of procedure include:

  • Sterex Electrolysis – a fine needle is used to remove delicate/small lesions
  • Hyfrecation- Low-powered electrocautery to remove the lesion
  • Excision – a small incision using a scalpel which is repaired with stitches. Our practitioners are meticulous about the sutures placement to ensure the very best possible outcome and least evidence of treatment
  • Laser treatment – Light energy to break down the cells

Does the procedure hurt?

A Skin lesion is a generic term used to describe lumps and bumps found on your body. Whichever type of mole or skin lesion you have, removal is virtually pain-free.  In most cases, to ensure your comfort during procedure, our medical practitioners will use local anaesthetic to numb the area before treatment commences.

IS BLEMISH REMOVAL PERMANENT?

It is our aim to provide you with a visually pleasing result for any removal, particularly if your lesion is on your face and we are pleased to say that treatments for milia, moles, skin tags, skin lesions, lipoma, xanthelasma and cysts are long lasting, often permanent. Rarely will there be a return of the same lesion in the same place, although if you are prone to some of these lumps, then you may acquire more through life. Those removed are the ones normally causing you irritation or some distress due to placement.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED FOR MINOR SKIN PROCEDURES?

You will only need one treatment to remove any lumps and bumps from the skin and you will see results immediately. As a responsible medical practice we will advise when it is necessary to send any lesion for testing. We insist on histology (laboratory testing of the skin tissue to identify cells) for some removals in order to give you peace of mind and reassurance that tissue is benign. Our practitioners will advise you which they will send to the laboratory during the consultation.

You can trust our team to give you great advice, affordable treatment rates and the very best visual result!

    Mole Removal

    The pigment cells that give our skin its natural colour are called melanocytes & a mole is simply a cluster of melanocytes. Most moles are harmless however some can develop into a skin cancer known as malignant melanoma. Moles can be a variety of colours depending on your skin type and can range in size and depth often darkening with sun exposure.
    SKIN CANCER
    If you have noticed a change to your mole in terms of rapid growth, change of or an irregular border, itching or are suspect in any way, please seek medical advice for an assessment. Your GP can carry out an assessment.
    COSMETIC REMOVAL
    If you require mole removal for cosmetic or practical reasons, Changes Clinic is safe and local for you to get treated by the best doctors quickly.
    HOW MOLES ARE REMOVED

    Milia Removal

    Milia is a word for a number of white or yellowish spots sitting just under the surface of the skin. Often seen on babies and known as milk spots, these keratin filled cysts are a clogging of the sweat glands and can occur anywhere on the face - particularly around the eyes, cheeks and nose – and even on the genitalia (often confused with warts).
    HOW MILIA ARE REMOVED
    Removal is straightforward depending on placement. A tiny incision is made by a needle allowing the contents of this tiny cyst to be released. The process is done using Sterex Electrolysis using a fine needle. Care needs to be taken to avoid any further injury particularly in sensitive areas. We remove milia on a time basis so multiple removal can be done during one treatment.
    FOR BEST RESULTS
    To avoid milia in the future try to exfoliate regularly, avoid using heavy or clogging make up or moisturisers, avoid direct sunlight and apply retinol (vitamin A).

    Skin Tag Removal

    Skin tags are small, soft, skin-coloured growths on your skin which can vary in colour and size. Anyone can develop skin tags!
    WHY SKIN TAGS OCCUR
    Skin Tags can be more prone with hormone changes (such as pregnancy) but some people develop them for no real reason. Skin tags can tend to grow where skin rubs against skin or clothing. This would explain why they also tend to affect overweight people or younger children who have excess folds of skin and skin chafing.
    TREATMENT FOR SKIN TAGS
    Removal is straightforward and carried out by our doctors and trained practitioner. Skin tags can easily be burnt off with hyfrecation which works by emitting low-power, high-frequency, high-voltage AC electrical pulses to cauterise the tissue. Skin tags can also be removed using Sterex Electrolysis or can be surgically removed in 'Excision Removal', using local anaesthetic. The best procedure for you will be discussed during your consultation.

    Cyst Removal

    Cysts are commonly found on the face, neck, body and sometimes around the genitals. A skin cyst is a bump which is just underneath the surface of the skin which is carrying fluid. It’s normally white or yellow and you may be able to see a centre from which you could squeeze out the fluid. They’re not normally painful but can be tender or sore if they become infected.
    Some cysts run in families such as pilar cysts and others simply form around hair follicles. If you have a cyst on your eyelid then this is known as a chalazion or Meibomian cyst which has formed due to the glands in the eyelids becoming blocked.
    REMOVAL OF A CYST
    Any cyst removal requires the skill of our surgeons and doctor to avoid complication and give an aesthetically pleasing result. Patients will be given an anaesthetic to numb the skin. A tiny cut is made in the skin and the cyst is squeezed out. We don’t usually send cysts to histology unless we feel there may be suspicious & unusual signs.
