Benign Lesion Removal

Have a mole, cyst, wart or skin tag you’d like removed for cosmetic reasons? Clear skin may be simpler than you think. Talk to our board-certified dermatologists to discover your options.

If a skin irregularity bothers you, you have options! Cosmetic lesion removal is customized to your particular skin, concern, and goals. Treatment options may include simple procedures such as shaving off or removing the lesion through a small incision, cryotherapy, electrocautery, or laser treatments. Our dermatologists will conduct a quick-yet-comprehensive exam to ensure the lesion is benign and determine the best possible procedure. 

Benign lesion removal can have you looking and feeling like your best self in a matter of hours or weeks post-treatment. If you are self-conscious or distracted by a skin lesion, asking some simple questions can make a big difference.
