We offer removal of benign skin lesions such as skin tags, moles, and age spots
Dermatologists are not only experts at differentiating benign skin lesions from dangerous skin cancers, but are also highly trained surgically to remove unwanted spots.
The types of spots that can be removed include:
- Skin tags
- Nevi (moles)
- Cherry angiomas (“red moles”)
- Seborrheic keratoses (“age spots”)
- Solar lentigines (sun spots)
- Sebaceous hyperplasia (dilated oil glands)
To achieve an optimal cosmetic outcome, we use tools such as surgical excision, cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen) or electrodessication (“hot needle”). We provide the most comfortable settings for removal and use local anesthetic if appropriate. The healing time is generally 1-2 weeks, during which scabbing can sometimes be seen at the site.
If you are considering removing benign lesions, winter and spring are a great time so that sun exposure can be minimized afterward.
If you would like to have one of our board-certified dermatologists examine your skin lesions and determine if cosmetic removal is appropriate, contact Bertucci MedSpa at (905) 850-4415 OR complete an online form to book your appointment. A referral from a physician is not required to be seen in consultation for benign lesion removal.
