What Is Lesion Removal?
There are quite a few different types of lesions, including skin tags, keratosis, moles, and warts. Skin lesions can either be raised to create a bump or can lie under the surface of the skin, causing a dark spot. While skin lesions are usually not dangerous, some patients elect to have them treated for aesthetic reasons or to alleviate the fear of health concerns, like skin irritation or cancer. At Nadomi Medspa in Wareham, MA, board-certified physician Dr. Nada Zaknoun performs lesion removal using advanced Cutera® excel® HR laser technology. During a consultation, Dr. Zaknoun will examine the lesion to determine the ideal treatment plan for you.

Lesion Removal FAQ
How much does lesion removal cost?
Lesion removal costs are dependent on the type, size, and where it is located. If you want a lesion removed for non-medical purposes, health insurance is usually not involved. Talk to Dr. Zaknoun in your initial consultation if you may want to submit a claim to your insurance company. She or someone on her staff can give you the needed information from our office.
Is scarring a concern?
With the use of laser technology for lesion removal, scarring tends to be less prevalent than with an excision treatment. If you are concerned about scarring, talk with Dr. Zaknoun during your consultation. She will be able to tell you exactly what you can expect and she works to make scarring as minimal as possible.
Do I need a board-certified physician?
Lesion removal for cosmetic reasons is a treatment to eliminate an unsightly or bothersome mark. A lesion that is dark, bumpy, large, or in a visible area may be removed. While a dermatologist is able to excise these, some lesions might need an aesthetic technique to minimize skin discoloration and irregular lines. This is one reason why it is better to make a consultation with a board-certified physician, like Dr. Zaknoun.
What causes skin tags, warts, and moles?
Often, skin tags, warts, and moles are generated by unmanageable situations like genetics. While they're normally minor and usually don't result in irritation, they might, at times, be troubling. When you have a lesion that you're concerned about, we urge you to connect with Nadomi Medspa.
How do I take care of my skin after lesion removal?
After you've had a wart, skin tag, or mole taken off, our Wareham, MA practice will provide you with certain guidelines on how to protect your skin. You should refrain from sunlight radiation, as ultraviolet rays may inflame your skin after your lesion removal and might even pause healing and affect long-term damage. We usually encourage you to put on sunblock and wear a hat when hanging out outside to help keep your skin healthy.
Can I resume normal activities after skin lesion removal?
In most cases, you can resume light activities shortly after the procedure. However, you may be advised to avoid strenuous activities or certain movements for a period of time to aid in the healing process.
