What Types of Skin Imperfections Should Your Skin Doctor Remove?
When you feel concerned about your various skin imperfections, it’s always best to visit a skin doctor in Dallas. While many of these imperfections are just uncomfortable to look at or feel, some may be an indication of possible trouble spots for skin cancer. In any case, Dermatology Solutions is able to clear up your skin with clean cosmetic removal of a variety of growths. Here are a few of the most popular:
A Skin Tag
A skin tag is typically not harmful. It is made up of a benign growth of skin cells that are simply bulging outwards. However, many people do not like the appearance of their skin tags, and depending on where they are positioned, they may interfere with your vision or get caught on your clothes or hair. It’s usually a simple matter for us to remove skin tags, letting you breathe just a little bit easier and feel a little more confident in your day-to-day life.
A Cyst Below the Skin
Cysts are also usually not hazardous to your health. However, they can grow large in size and become quite noticeable and even painful. In certain areas and at certain sizes, they may also prevent clothing from fitting properly. There are different types of cysts and different reasons cysts form, but removal is generally straightforward. If you do choose us to remove your cyst, we’ll carefully guide you through the healing process to prevent the return of the cyst or any other infection.
Precancerous Moles or Skin Cancer
If you have moles, it is always recommended that you look for signs of changes to the mole, such as suddent growth, changes to the shape of the mole or changes to the color of the mole. All of these changes may be a signal that the mole might be precancerous. A skin doctor can remove dangerous moles and skin cancer cells, to help minimize your chances of skin cancer or help fight skin cancer that has already developed.
However, you can reduce the risk of these developments by simply removing moles whenever you spot them. This procedure is considered cosmetic and is not always the right choice, but we encourage you to consult with us to explore the possibility. It may be a good preventative step to keep your skin healthy.
