A benign lesion is any non-cancerous growth on the skin such as moles, warts, seborrheic keratoses, skin tags, and many others. Knight Dermatology employs several techniques to remove benign lesions and removal methods are relatively painless and require little recovery time.
Benign lesion removal is done under local anesthesia. Commonly used methods of benign lesion removal include traditional surgery, laser surgery, electrosurgery, cryosurgery, and curettage. The chosen procedure will be individually tailored to your needs, with strict attention to the cosmetic outcome.
After the lesion has been removed, most people can resume normal daily activities immediately. Benign lesion removal generally takes between five and twenty minutes. Complete post-operative instructions will be discussed with you, and usually include nothing more than an antibiotic ointment and a bandage.
In many cases, benign lesion removal is not covered by medical insurance. Cosmetic fees will be discussed with you prior to any procedure.
