A benign cutaneous lesion is any non-cancerous growth on the skin. Commonly treated lesions include seborrheic keratosis, skin tags, cholesterol deposits, milia, cherry angiomas, sebaceous hyperplasia, and actinic keratosis. For all mole removals, we suggest you contact your dermatologist’s office. Please schedule a consultation to determine what treatment will be most effective for you. Available lesion treatments include:
- Cryosurgery (liquid nitrogen)
- Laser Treatments
- Surgical Removal with Dr. Kevin Robertson
After the lesion has been removed, most people can resume normal daily activities immediately. Benign lesion removal generally takes between five and 20 minutes. Complete post-care instructions will be discussed with you, and usually include nothing more than an antibiotic ointment and a bandage.
