Benign Lesion Treatment
There are two important types of lesions: benign and malignant.
Malignant lesions, or tumors, which can be pre-malignant or malignant, need to undergo a biopsy first to determine whether they are cancerous or not. A dermatologist will examine and treat them accordingly.
On the other hand, benign lesions are treated directly with laser, usually requiring a minimum of 1 session and up to 3 sessions, depending on five important characteristics: size, depth, duration, color, and the area of the face where they are located.
There are different types of masses, including:
Warts, skin tags, keratomas, lax adenomas, moles, nevi, fibroadenomas, nodular cysts, xanthelasmas, contagious mollusks, sebaceous hyperplasias, seborrheic keratosis, among others.
This procedure does not require general anesthesia, only local anesthesia. It does not cause medical incapacity, and recovery is immediate, with daily dressings for a maximum of 5 days.
