Lesion Removal

Causes of Skin Lesions

Skin lesions are abnormal growths, bumps or textures that differ to the skin surrounding it. Moles, warts and skin tags are a handful of the types of lesions that our clinic can remove. The EXELO2 CO2 Full Ablation Mode can be used to remove superficial benign skin changes across the surface. This German engineered technology makes it safer, dependable and very efficient. The procedure can be used to treat sun damaged skin, wrinkles, stretch marks, poor skin tone, open pores, uneven skin tone, warts, benign skin tumours and rhinophyma.

Skin Tags

Skin Tags (acrochordon) are bits of flesh-coloured or darkly pigmented tissue that project from the surrounding skin. They mainly occur on areas such as the neck, armpit, groin and eyelids and are thought to occur from skin friction, where the skin rubs against skin or clothing.

Keratosis

Scientists have still not identified a specific cause for keratosis, however, there are various risk factors involved with their development. These growths are often attributed to extensive exposure to sunlight.

Moles

The occurrence of moles are the result of cells within the skin growing in clusters rather than spreading out over the skin’s surface. These cells, known as melanocystes, are responsible for giving your skin a natural tone.

Syringoma

Syringomas are formed as a result of increased activity of the sweat gland which in extremely rare cases leads to tumor growth. There are various external causes that can trigger the development of syringomas.

Warts

The cause of warts is the human papilloma virus (HPV) which causes the cells in the skin to multiply very quickly at a certain place, forming a lump of skin.

CO2 Full Ablative

The CO2 Full Ablative procedure delivers a laser through a range of narrow wavelengths that are able to target the area to rise the temperature that in turn results in full tissue ablation. After this, the body’s natural healing process replaces the damaged tissue with healthy tissue. This procedure has been considered as the cosmetic industry’s golden standard.
