Am I A Candidate for Lesion, Wart, or Spider Vein Removal?
Lesion, wart, or spider vein removal is a procedure that is ideal for men and women who have a mole, wart, skin tag, keratosis, or spider veins. It is commonly performed for both cosmetic and practical reasons. Great candidates for this procedure typically meet some of the following criteria:
- Are experiencing constant skin irritation
- Wish to rid themselves of one or more skin lesions or spider veins
- Feel self-conscious about their skin
- Feel their lesion or wart could be cancerous
- Have a skin lesion, wart, or spider vein in a prominent area on the body, such as the nose, chin, cheeks, or hands
What causes lesions and warts?
Lesions are typically caused by some form of trauma. This can include a cut, scrape, bruise, or burn. Other causes can include age, infection, or autoimmune disease. Warts are normally the result of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes rapid cell growth on the outer layer of the skin. Patients may have rough or raised skin as a result. Both lesions and warts can be addressed with help from a laser treatment, but it's important to get an assessment from a professional before moving forward.
