Lesion Removal in Los Gatos, CA

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. Dr. Maia Chakerian and her team provide this noninvasive solution to remove brown spots, skin tags, and small growths seen on the face or body. The state-of-the-art Hybrid system allows flexibility to modify the laser based on the size and form of skin growth you have. When you have a consultation at our office in Los Gatos, CA, our providers will compose a customized treatment outline to help you attain a more radiant skin appearance so you can feel and look your best.

How is lesion removal performed?

The Alma Hybrid laser system is used for lesion removal through a process that begins with a consultation to evaluate the lesion and plan the treatment. The area is then prepared, potentially with a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort. The system utilizes either a CO2 laser for superficial lesions or a 1570 nm laser for deeper skin structures, allowing precise ablation of the lesion with minimal damage to surrounding tissues. This targeted approach ensures the lesion is effectively vaporized without the need for invasive surgery.

What can i expect following lesion removal?

After laser skin lesion removal, you can expect a simple and generally pain-free recovery process. The treated area might be tender, red, or swollen for a few days. Keeping the area clean by gently washing it with soap and water is essential. A bandage or over-the-counter antibiotic ointment can promote healing and may be advised by our Los Gatos, CA team. Watch for any signs of infection, such as increased redness, swelling, or pus, and contact Sereno Santé if these occur.
