What is Lesion Removal?

There are quite a few different types of lesions, including warts, skin tags, moles, and keratosis. Skin lesions can often be raised or discolored, and they can create a bump or a dark spot beneath the skin's surface. While usually harmless, you may elect to have them treated for personal reasons or to alleviate the fear of health concerns, like cancer. At Altogether You Med Spa in Phoenix, AZ, José A. Ortiz, N.M.D. provides experienced lesion removal. During your consultation, Dr. José A. Ortiz, N.M.D. will examine the lesion to decide which removal technique best fits your situation.

Procedure Technique

Removing lesions is performed on-site under local anesthesia in our minor procedure room. There are a number of removal techniques used for lesion removal, including shaving, laser, and excision. The technique chosen will be dependent on the size, location, and depth of the lesion. Some lesions may be easily removed with a simple shaving procedure or a laser treatment while others may require surgical excision. Regardless of the approach, Dr. José A. Ortiz, N.M.D. will work to minimize scarring and provide you with the most comfortable experience possible.

Lesion removal FAQs

What causes lesions?

Warts, skin tags, moles, and keratosis are all examples of lesions that can appear on the skin. These growths all have different causes depending on the type of lesion involved. For example, skin tags are often hereditary and more likely to occur as people age. If you notice any unusual growths on your body, consult with our professionals at Altogether You Med Spa.

Does lesion removal hurt?

Dr. Ortiz does use local anesthesia for lesion removal — so patients should not feel any pain during the procedure. Once the lesion is removed, the area may be slightly sore for a day or two. Patients can take over-the-counter pain medication if needed. Our team is proud to use the latest tools and techniques to provide services with as few side effects as possible.

How do I take care of my skin after lesion removal?
