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!
