Lump or bump removal
Typically, the National Health Service will only remove a lump or bump from the skin if it is deemed to be affecting physical or mental health. If it is considered to be a cosmetic problem, it is often suggested that you make an appointment with a privately practising GP to have it (or them) removed.
So what do you do if you have a gathering of unsightly skin tags on your neck or a rather large collection of seborrhoeic keratosis (senile warts) on your back that you would like to get rid of?
There is a cost effective and very simple procedure called Electro Surgery that can easily get rid of these annoying and unsightly skin lesions once and for all.
Absolute Aesthetics uses Electro Surgery for the safe removal of skin lumps or bumps such as :
- facial thread veins
- blood spots (Campbell de Morgan spots)
- skin tags
- dermatosis papulosa nigra
- sebaceous cysts
- seborrhoeic keratosis
- age spots
Unbelievably, Electro Surgery is still not widely known about or considered by General Practitioners as a treatment in the United Kingdom. As a result of this lack of awareness, many people are needlessly paying incredibly high sums of money to have lesions removed by surgical excision, cryotherapy or, in some cases, laser.
Electro Surgery uses a very fine stainless steel one piece needle. During the treatment, a low level current cauterises the blood flow to the lesion, allowing the lesion to be scraped away and then lifted from the surface of the skin.
To minimise risk of scarring, particularly for the darker skin types, the lesion is cauterised and then the debris of the lesion is left to come away with the scab or crust that forms. These usually come away within 3 to 5 days after the treatment.
Electro Surgery is a very delicate technique which enables the practitioner to remove a wide variety of skin lesions. It leaves little trauma to the skin and minimises the risk of scarring or pigmentation.
The time taken to perform the treatment will really depend on the size, number and nature of the lesions.
It is important that all patients have a consultation beforehand so that a clear indication of how many treatments would be needed and approximately how much it would cost. For the more straightforward lesions such as skin tags, around six can be removed during a 15 minute session which starts from £75.
All patients must have a consultation prior to having the procedure. Contact us if you would like more information or telephone 01483 477 189 or 020 3757 7178 to make an appointment at either our Guildford or London Clinic.
