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.
Prestige Cosmetic Dermatology Reviews
The surgery was great, it was quick and painless
I love Dr. Kang! She is thorough, personable, and excellent at her craft! The facility is pristine and beautiful. It’s also very easy to book appointments online and her office is excellent with follow up. She also has the best skincare products in office. I’m so happy with my results.
I had a lot (and I mean l lot) of "barnacles" (keratosis-bumps) on my arms and legs. Dr. Kang was very thorough and meticulous when using liquid nitrogen to treat even the smallest of bumps. I have been to other dermatologists for this in the past and not one has done the excellent job that she did. I left there wondering why the others couldn't have done this in the past. And her schedule allowed me to come there on a Saturday which made it easier for me to not take time off from work. Thank you
I was referred by my insurance provider for some minor cosmetic work. Staff was very kind and helpful when making my appointment. Dr. Kang was super friendly and explained step by step on what she was doing during my procedure. I felt really comfortable and ecstatic with the outcome. The facility was really clean and in a great location.
Great service. Very clean facility and knowledgeable of options.
