Q: Does skin tag & lesion removal hurt?
A: Without an anesthetic, you would likely feel a warm sensation in the area being treated along with a brief, sharp sting. A topical numbing cream will likely be used for added comfort, meaning the procedure itself will be painless. Recovery can involve some swelling and soreness, but these should dissipate after a few days.
Q: How much does skin tag & lesion removal cost?
A: The price of your skin lesion removal treatment depends on several considerations such as the location being treated, the size of the lesion, the type of lesion, and more. We will review cost estimates at your first appointment with Dr. Pierce, where we will discuss all the options available and answer any questions you have about the procedure.
Q: How long will skin tag & lesion removal take?
A: Your skin lesion removal treatment will take 30 minutes to one hour. The procedure time for the excision process will alter depending on components such as lesion size, type, and placement. Generally, you will likely only need one session, but additional sessions could be needed depending on the type of lesion being treated. Skin lesion removal is typically permanent. Be aware, though, skin lesions such as warts or skin tags may appear in other spots of the skin. Still, the FemiLift Pixel CO2 makes the removal of future lesions very simple.
