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. 

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 had a small bump appear on the tip of my nose about 3 years ago. I know there are bigger problems in life but it bugged the hell out of me. I played wanna be doctor and did my research on treatments so as I walked into Prestige Cosmetic Dermatology I was prepared to face a few obstacles. My experience was too good to be true! The receptionist was super friendly. Then I felt like I was talking to a friend when I spoke with Dr. Kang. 5 minutes later, the bump on my nose was already removed by Dr. Kang for a really really really reasonable cost. Everything went so well that I'm worried that I'm going to start looking for different things I can do to make my skin look better 🙂

I was referred by my health provider to contact Dr Kang to remove small bumps on my face (sebaceous hyperplasia) and she did not disappoint. Very professional, kind and gentle throughout the procedure. Highly recommended. Thank you!

Dr. Kang is so sweet! I had some small veins that kept popping up on my nose and she used one of her lasers to treat them. They were gone after one quick visit. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Dermatologist.
