What Is Lesion Removal?
Lesions, including warts, moles, and skin tags, present as areas that look different from the neighboring skin. These spots could be elevated or exist under the surface of the skin. Although many skin growths are usually safe and benign, plenty of patients want to excise them for aesthetic reasons. Skin lesion removal with HyLight by Alma Hybrid™ is a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser rejuvenation procedure performed at Sereno Santé.
