Cosmetic Lesion Removal is the latest way to remove unsightly and annoying moles, age warts and skin tags from the body, especially the face, without leaving noticeable scarring. The allmedic CLR machine uses radio surgery diathermy technology to shave the lesion until it is smooth and flat with the skin surface. Scarring is minimised with this technology as it does not cause damage to the normal surrounding tissue.
Your doctor is well trained in distinguishing between harmless and abnormal moles and lesions. If they feel the mole or lesion could be cancerous or troublesome, they will either biopsy or excise the lesion and send it away for pathological analysis.
Harmless lesions, age warts and skin tags are removed quite easily. The area around the lesion is anaesthetised with a local anaesthetic. Once numb the lesion is removed or shaved flush with the skin. The technique is much like putting “a hot knife through butter”. There is no bleeding as blood vessels are sealed off. THERE IS NO NEED FOR STITCHES.
After the procedure, you will be left with a small, raw area which will be dressed then an ointment will be applied twice a day for 10 days. Any procedure can lead to unacceptable scar formation, but this technique gives the best cosmetic result. The end result is usually flat skin which is occasionally paler that the surrounding normal skin. Harmless lesions can penetrate into the deeper tissue and even regrow over many years. On rare occasions lesions can regrow due to their original depth in the skin. If this happens, your doctor can easily re-treat the area.
