A variety of techniques, from relatively simple biopsies to more complex surgical excisions, may be used for a skin lesion removal, whether it be located on the face or body. Skin lesions can range from a benign growth, such as unsightly mole, skin tag or cyst, to a malignant melanoma. Dr. Anthony J. Geroulis may remove a lesion to make sure it is not cancerous or has the potential to become so; if the lesion does prove to be cancerous, it can be removed to prevent spreading.
During a consultation to address a skin lesion removal at the Chicago, Northfield or Hoffman Estates location, Dr. Geroulis will determine the most effective method of intervention and the most precise technique for your skin issue and skin type. Most of the skin lesion removal procedures are not highly invasive and are often well tolerated by young and older patients and those with other medical conditions.
When the lesion is small, Dr. Geroulis can perform the procedure quickly and easily with local anesthesia in our outpatient facility. This usually leaves a remarkably thin, barely visible scar, even in the facial area. In addition, Dermapen skin therapy may be recommended to accelerate healing and further repair skin and diminish any visible signs of incision from the skin lesion removal. This revolutionary treatment utilizes a device with micro-needles that vibrates as it travels across the face or body. The pen gently stamps the epidermis to ensure balanced absorption of an applied topical into the skin and to speed up skin restoration. The further application of medical grade, highly effective skin creams and serums will provide further skin restoration to smooth out the color, tone and texture of the skin lesion providing remarkable results in overall skin complexion.
