Modern technologies of removal of benign skin lesions, such as laser, electrocoagulation and radioknife, allow us to do it:
Quick and painless
Without hurting the surrounding tissue
Moles are benign formations consisted of melanocytes (cells that produce skin pigment). They can be congenital, but can also be obtained, that is formed at any period of life. Their color varies from gray to dark brown or black, and some of them are skin color. The active appearance of new moles and the growth of the pre-existing ones, is present in the period of sexual maturity (12 – 18) and during pregnancy. What concerns us is the ability of the mole to grow into a malignant melanoma. Signs that should take us to a dermatologist are: mole growth, color change, and any change of the surface of the mole (cracking, scab formation, discharge, bleeding). Before removal, dermatoscopy examination is done, and only then decided what method will be used to remove the mole. Dermatoscopy examination of moles is recommended once a year.
Mole removal is performed under local anesthesia. After the procedure you should refrain from long hours spent in the sun.
Papillomas are of viral origin. The virus is found on the skin surface, and at a low immune system, Ph disorders of the skin , etc. it leads to papilloma. Infection with this virus is possible by direct contact. Time period from the contact until the appearance of the papilloma is about 3 months. Papillomas, popularly known as the „hanging warts“ most often appear on the neck, armpits, under the breasts, on the belly. They can be mushroom or conical shape, size from 1 to 3 mm, normal skin color to dark brown. In the beginning, there is only one papilloma, which soon leads to the so-called autoinfection, and spreads, so it can be over a hundred of them. To prevent spreading it over ourselves, but also our fellow people, removal is recommended. Removal is painless, fast and without scarring.
Warts are also benign changes of viral origin. Their appearance is 4 months after the contact with someone who already has warts. There are several types of warts:
Common warts – are round, firm changes, with clear boundaries, skin color, with a rough surface, usually localized on the hands and fingers, face, scalp.
Warts of the feet – very painful, resemble calluses, hard and fast growing, mainly localized in parts of the biggest pressure.
Flat warts – small up to 5 mm, skin color, round with a smooth surface, usually on the face or hands.
Removal is quick, under local anesthesia and without scarring.
Among other changes, we perform the removal of dotted hemangiomas, so called „Rubin’s dots“, which appear on the skin after the age of 40, in the form of small (1 to 6 mm), rounded, red dots, in the level with or slightly above the level of the skin.
