While cosmetically undesirable, facial moles, skin tags, and Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN) are common skin conditions that are usually harmless. Some people choose to have growths like these removed for medical reasons, to determine if they are precancerous. But in a majority of cases, cosmetic concerns are the motivation for elective growth removal procedures. Our facial cosmetic office uses the most advanced techniques to make aesthetic treatments like these as simple and comfortable as possible. Understanding each type of skin condition and what removal techniques are involved can help you decide whether a skin growth removal procedure is right for you.
If unsightly moles are a problem, we can treat them quickly and easily. We utilize an incision-free mole removal technique that uses radio-wave technology to achieve the best cosmetic results. This process is minimally-invasive and can be completed in-office without the need for down time.
Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags are harmless, common growths and most people have at least one somewhere on their body. However, they can be unsightly if they appear on the face, and can also cause discomfort or irritation when in an area that repeatedly rubs against clothing. Thankfully, skin tag removal is a minor procedure that can be completed in approximately 15-minutes and healing typically takes less than a week.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra (DPN) Removal
DPN is a skin condition where multiple brown lesions develop across the face or other parts of the body. Our facial cosmetic office is experienced and skilled in aesthetic DPN lesion removal techniques. Our process for removal of these ‘facial moles’ is similar to our approach for removing other types of moles.
Depending on their location, size and coloration, moles, skin tags and DPN can all result in unsightly irregularities in your skin’s appearance. Although they’re generally harmless, left untreated, these growths can significantly affect your confidence and self-esteem. If you’re trying to decide if having an elective removal procedure is worth it, consider how a minimal investment of time can offer you long-lasting results and the smooth, growth-free skin you want and deserve
