What Is Lesion Removal?
If you examine your skin, then you may notice small growths or regions that appear different compared to the surrounding skin. These are known as skin lesions and could develop anywhere on your face or body. You may want a lesion removed if it is bothersome, unattractive, or painful. Although most skin lesions are harmless and noncancerous, a lesion that has changed over time may need to be biopsied to test for cancerous cells. If you have a lesion you'd like to have analyzed or removed, schedule a consultation with Dr. Katayoun Motlagh. Most lesions can be removed quickly with as little discomfort as possible in one of our treatment rooms at Dr. Motlagh’s facility in Palmdale, CA.

How Is Lesion Removal Performed?
Depending on the type of lesion being addressed, there could be multiple options for removal. An excision with biopsy may be recommended by Dr. Motlagh, which entails cutting the lesion out, along with some tissue and skin under and around it. This is often performed for moles, cysts, or other kinds of lesions that could be precancerous or cancerous. A topical anesthetic and stitches will likely be needed in these circumstances. The surface of the skin should heal within a week or two. Surface layer lesions may also be removed using a surgical blade that gently shaves away the mark. Dr. Motlagh could alternately suggest laser treatment, cryotherapy, or topical creams that minimize the appearance of skin lesions. The removal method that is the most ideal for your skin will be decided during your initial consultation.
