Growth and Lesion Removal
Every day someone finds a new growth somewhere on their body. It can leave them with questions and concerns. Is it a bug bite, an allergic reaction, acne, or skin cancer? Growths may be a natural part of the skin, but not all are benign.
At Elevated Dermatology, we examine and identify abnormalities and determine the risk they pose. If we have a reason for concern, a surgical excision may be recommended.
How It Works
A surgical excision is a technique used to remove skin growths and lesions, including skin cancer, cysts, atypical moles, and more. The affected area is removed along with a small margin of healthy skin surrounding the damaged area.
The Elevated Difference
Elevated Dermatology offers advanced treatment options, like skin excisions in Littleton, CO, and some of the fastest results with our in-facility capabilities.
All patients will have a comprehensive consultation with our board-certified provider, where we'll review medical history, the area of concern, and options for treatment.
First, we numb the area with a local anesthetic and then your board-certified dermatologist will use a sharp blade to remove the affected area. Treatment typically takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on the size of the treatment site.
After a skin excision in Littleton, CO, the growth will be removed, leaving you with a slight scar. Your dermatologist will schedule a follow up to ensure no cancerous tissue remains and that everything has healed properly.
