Surgical removal of moles lasts around 15-30 minutes. The lesion is mapped and the skin area will be cleansed and numbed with local anesthetic, such as lidocaine. After a couple of minutes, a scalpel is used to cut the mole and a border surrounding the mole. Stitches are used to close the skin, and those will be then removed by your dermatologist after 7-14 days.
The skin area will be cleansed and numbed with local anesthetic, such as lidocaine. After a couple of minutes, a circular tool is used to remove a small core of skin and stirches are used to close the skin.
The are several treatments for warts, and sometimes the combination of more treatment is necessary to achieve better results.
- Cryotherapy: liquid nitrogen is used to freeze warts. Usually a couple of treatments are required (every 7-14 days). Freezing works by causing a blister to form under and around your wart.
- Stronger peeling medicine (salicylic acid): prescription-strength wart medications work by removing layers of a wart a little bit at a time.
- Minor surgery: your dermatologist can cut away the bothersome tissue. However, this may leave a scar in the treated area.
Cryotherapy is the use of extremly cold liquid nitrogen to freeze and remove skin lesions including viral warts, skin tags, (seborrhoeic keratosis) and actinic keratosis.
