Surgical Blemish Removal

There are multiple types of harmless blemishes that many people may wish to remove on aesthetic grounds, or because they catch or irritate. These may include skin tags, seborrheic keratoses (age spots), prominent intradermal nevi (fleshy moles), and cysts.

Many of these can be removed by quick and minimally invasive procedures, such as with diathermy, curettage, cryosurgery, snip excision or shave excision. Some lesions are best formally excised, and closed with sutures. The majority of them can be readily performed with slight or no downtime, and with minimal residual marks. However, not all lesions are suitable for surgical removal, especially if it is deemed the risk of unpleasant scarring is too high. Your dermatologist will advise.
