Comprehensive Skin Lesion Removal with
Mr. Matt Erdmann

Skin lesions can be more than just a cosmetic concern; they can be a sign of underlying health issues or simply become bothersome when catching on clothing. Whether you’re dealing with a skin tag, a suspicious mole, or any other type of skin lesion, understanding your removal options is crucial. Mr. Matt Erdmann, a renowned plastic surgeon based in Washington, UK, brings his vast expertise to the table, offering advanced skin lesion removal techniques using surgery or cryotherapy.

Types of skin lesion that can be treated with surgery or cryotherapy:

5

Keloids and hypertrophic scars:

Overgrowths of scar tissue that result from an overproduction of collagen. They can be itchy, painful, or cosmetically undesirable.
5

Moles (Naevi):

These are common skin growths that can be flat or raised and can vary in color. While many are harmless, some moles can be cancerous. Removal can be for both medical and cosmetic reasons.
5

Skin tags:

Small, benign growths that often appear in areas of skin folds like the neck, armpits, and groin. They are harmless but can be annoying or cosmetically undesirable.
5

Actinic keratoses:

These are rough, scaly patches on the skin caused by excessive sun exposure. They can sometimes progress to skin cancer, so removal is often recommended.
5

Warts:

Caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), these are benign skin growths that can appear anywhere on the body. Cryotherapy is a common treatment for warts.
5

Cherry angiomas:

Small, bright red growths that can appear anywhere on the body. They are benign but can be removed if they become bothersome or for aesthetic reasons.
5

Dermatofibromas:

Firm, raised lesions that are usually benign. They can be pink, brown, or red and might be removed if they become painful or for cosmetic reasons.
5

Lentigines (liver spots):

Flat, tan, brown, or black spots that often appear on sun-exposed areas. They are benign but can be removed for cosmetic reasons.
5

Sebaceous hyperplasia:

Small, yellowish growths that are benign but can be removed for cosmetic reasons.

How does cryotherapy work for skin lesion?

Cryotherapy involves the use of liquid nitrous oxide to freeze and destroy abnormal skin cells. The extreme cold causes the lesion to fall off within a few days to weeks. It is a quick procedure, done without local anaesthetic, ensuring minimal discomfort.

What results can I realistically expect with a skin lesion removal?

Post-treatment, the targeted lesion will either fall off (cryotherapy) or will be surgically removed. The results are typically permanent, though new lesions can develop elsewhere. Scarring is minimal.

The treatment process:

Depending on the type of lesion and its location, either surgical removal or cryotherapy will be recommended. Both procedures are typically quick and local anaesthetic is used for surgery.

Duration and post-treatment care:

The treatment itself is swift, often taking less than an hour. Post-treatment care might include keeping the area clean, avoiding direct sunlight, and applying prescribed ointments.
