What Is Unwanted Growth Removal?

Most people have a mole or lesion on some part of their body. Dr. Alison Kang at Prestige Cosmetic Dermatology provides regular mole and skin lesion checks for patients throughout the Greater Yorba Linda, CA area. As a board-certified Dermatologist, Dr. Kang can determine the best treatment for each skin lesion including close monitoring, observation, or removal. There are a variety of benign growths on the body including brown spots, facial vessels, skin tags, lipomas, keratoses, milia, and moles. If appropriate, Dr. Kang can perform unwanted growth removal using a variety of removal methods, including laser, cryosurgery, electrosurgery, excision, and shaving. During your consultation, Dr. Kang will examine the lesions to decide which approach will most benefit you. If you have moles and feel unsure about the safety of one, or if one has become bothersome, it's important to see a professional.


What Can I Expect From Unwanted Growth Removal?

Most moles and lesions do not need treatment unless they become suspicious or cancerous, or if they cause discomfort, irritation, or cosmetic problems. In these situations, Dr. Kang may recommend removal. For surgical excision, the region around the mole will be numbed with a local anesthetic, and a scalpel or similar device is used to eliminate the mole and a bit of the surrounding skin cells. The wound will then be closed with stitches. Sometimes, when the mole or lesion is at the surface level, a surgical shave could be performed where the region is numbed and a small blade is used to cut around and beneath the target tissue. Stitches aren't required for this procedure. Dr. Kang may also recommend laser treatments, cryosurgery or electrosurgery to minimize symptoms or the appearance of lesions. 

Going to Dr Kang was the greatest choice! I had a mole on my eyelid removed. I went to a few consultations before visiting Dr. Kang, she was the ONLY Dr who offered more than one way to do the removal & of course the other businesses only suggested the most expensive and unnecessary way! Her staff was so helpful on my initial calls (I have never done any type of cosmetic procedure) and took their time to explain everything & get me the answers to my question. Absolutely great experience with this business!!!

I love Dr Kang! She has been doing my Botox for a few treatments already and she has the most gentle hand. She also did an excision for a mole on my cheek and the scar healed very nicely! I love my results each time and plan to stay with her for all my future cosmetic treatments. I cannot recommend her enough.

Dr. Kang and her staff were very welcoming and attentive. I went in to remove a few skin tags I developed during pregnancy. Dr. Kang explained the procedure and what to expect. She performed the procedure the same day as my consultation. I would definitely recommend Dr. Kang.

Dr Kang is an excellent dermatologist and has great skills in dermatology and medical aesthetics. She was very friendly, professional and qualified. I’ll be back for more treatments. Currently started with mole shaving from cheek and some minor skin maintenance and plan to be a patient here for many years.

I saw Dr. Kang for fraxel laser treatments for pigmentation and for skin tags that I had all over my neck. Dr. Kang did a fantastic job and her thorough and detailed work was very much appreciated with the amount of skin tags I was looking to treat. She is so friendly and knowledgeable and I am so happy with the results - definitely coming back for additional treatments with Dr. Kang!
