About Lesion Removal
There are various types of lesions, including warts, skin tags, keratosis, and moles. Skin lesions can be raised and create a bump or can lie beneath the skin's surface and cause a dark spot. While skin lesions are typically harmless and can be left alone, patients often choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons or to avoid potential health risks, such as skin irritation or cancer. At Legacy Dermatology & Restoration Center in Frisco, TX, dermatologist Jennifer Dharamsi, M.D. and her team of providers offer lesion removal to adults, teens, and children. A variety of techniques can be used for lesion removal, including laser, excision, and shaving. During your consultation, Dr. Dharamsi will examine the condition of your skin to decide which technique best fits your situation.
Lesion removal is ideal for patients of all ages who have one or more moles, warts, skin tags, or keratoses. It can be performed for cosmetic or medical reasons. The best candidates typically meet the following criteria:
- Are suffering from chronic skin irritation
- Desire the removal of one or more skin lesion
- Are embarrassed by their lesions
- Are concerned that their lesions could pose health risks
- Have a skin lesion in a prominent area on the body, such as the chin, cheeks, hands, or nose

Lesion removal is a simple procedure performed with a local anesthetic in our minor procedure room. The method used will be dependent on the location, depth, and size of the lesion. Some lesions can be easily removed with a simple shaving technique or laser treatment, but others may require excision. The method that is most ideal for your skin condition will be discussed during your initial consult. Regardless of the approach, Dr. Dharamsi will do her best to leave minimal scarring.
What to Expect
After your lesion removal, the treatment area may feel sensitive and uncomfortable. These symptoms usually begin to fade within a few days. Over-the-counter pain medication may be used to minimize discomfort. If your procedure required stitches, you should avoid washing or rubbing the area and follow all post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Dharamsi. In most situations, the skin will scab over and heal within 2 – 3 weeks with proper aftercare and application of topical medication.
