Do you ever wish your skin would just behave like you want it to? If your skin is like most people’s, that might be a bit of a tall order. Our bodies change over time, and skin changes are usually the most visible. But just because changes happen doesn’t mean they can’t be undone.
Skin lesions of all kinds are a common source of skin-related anxiety. Getting rid of them can make a big difference, and big-difference changes don’t have to involve big-budget surgeries.
At Entre Nous Aesthetics, we provide several different treatments for non-surgical skin lesion removal in Menlo Park to help you feel confident and in control of your forward-facing self.
What Are Skin Lesions?
A skin lesion refers to any area of skin that is different from the skin around it. “Different how?” you might ask. Well, it can be different in texture, size, shape, or color. Some common examples of skin lesions include:
Getting rid of these types of skin lesions is usually done for aesthetic or practical reasons—they aren’t normally a source of pain or cause for concern. Most skin lesion are benign, but Cleveland Clinic’s guide to skin lesions recommends seeing a doctor if your lesion(s):
- Cause discomfort or pain
- Change in color, size, or shape
- Appears as an open wound that doesn’t heal
Removing Skin Lesions With Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy, or cryosurgery, is a non-surgical procedure that harnesses the power of extreme cold to destroy and remove skin lesions anywhere on the body. Unlike surgical excision, cryotherapy is much less likely to leave a major scar.
During treatment, a skilled expert carefully applies a freezing agent, like liquid nitrogen, to the skin lesion.
After freezing the “abnormal tissue,” the treatment area is allowed to thaw before being re-frozen. Non-surgical lesion removal in Menlo Park typically involves 3 freeze-thaw cycles to get the job done. Some larger lesions may need multiple treatment sessions.
Afterwards, a blister or scab may develop on and around the lesion. No need to worry—this is normal, and you should completely heal from your non-surgical lesion removal in Menlo Park in 1 to 3 weeks. The scab or blister will fall off when it’s ready. In most cases, the skin lesion falls off with the scab or blister.
