MOLE, SKIN TAG & GROWTH REMOVAL

Lesions such as skin tags, moles and keratoses are annoying growths that appear over time and may be hereditary. A variety of growths can develop on the skin; while many lesions are benign, they should initially be examined by a dermatologist. Dr. Nield will establish a correct diagnosis before discussing treatment options.

Seborrheic keratoses are benign, warty growths that look like they are stuck onto the skin. They can vary in colour from beige to tan, dark brown or even black. They can be flat and smooth or thick, rough and scaly. They are often hereditary and develop with age, most commonly appearing on the trunk, face, neck and scalp.

Seborrheic keratoses can be mistaken for a skin cancer; on occasion, Dr. Nield may need to perform a skin biopsy to establish a diagnosis. Usually, the benign nature of these lesions is readily apparent to Dr. Nield, and she can reassure you and suggest treatment options. Often, the growths can be easily removed with liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy) or electrodessication over one or several treatments. New growths may form over time, which may require further treatments.

Skin tags are benign outgrowths of skin that are usually flesh-coloured or darker than your skin. They usually develop in the neck, groin, armpits and chest, and can get caught in clothing and jewellery. To remove them, Dr. Nield performs a simple in-office procedure using electrodessication.

Moles are common growths that arise from the pigment producing cells of the skin (melanocytes). A changing mole should be examined by a doctor to rule out skin cancer. Benign, common moles can be removed for cosmetic reasons, usually by shave biopsy or excision

Milia are minute superficial cysts of the skin that commonly develop on the face. They can occur at any age, and can be easily treated in our office by extraction or via chemical peels or microdermabrasion.

Hemangiomas (cherry angiomas) are small benign collections of blood vessels that can be multiple and widespread on the body, especially the trunk. They can be readily removed in our office using our YAG Laser, Vasculite Intense Pulsed Light or electrodessication.

Sebaceous Gland Hyperplasia appears as small white or yellow growths on the face, and is particularly common in individuals with oily skin. They can be treated with electrodessication, excision or photodynamic therapy (PDT).
