What are my options for skin lesion removal?
There are three main methods for removing skin lesions at the Skin Surgery Clinic. They are laser skin lesion removal, surgical skin lesion removal and the removal of skin lesions by a hyfrecator. In your consultation one of our clinical nurses will best advised you on the most successful method of treatment. We also offer a biopsy and histology service if any lesion looks suspect, the cost of this is £95 and is a non profit making service.
Skin lesion removal via our Erbium Yag laser is our preferred option of removal for skin lesions. The treatment causes very little discomfort and is carried out under local anaesthetic, the treatment will usually last around 20 minutes. The main reason for laser being our preferred choice is due to the minimal chances of any scarring post treatment. Prices start from £275 for the removal of one skin lesions via laser, additional skin lesions removed on the day will cost £75.
Surgical skin lesion removal is the most successful method of removal however it will leave a small linear scar after the procedure. The treatment will last roughly 30 minutes and post treatment there may be some discomfort while your skin is healing. Prices start from £350 for the removal of one skin lesion.
The removal of skin lesions via the hyfrecator is mainly reserved for skin lesions with a stalk such as skin tags. The surgical blade removes the skin lesions while cauterising the blood vessels to stop bleeding. This is a simple and very successful method for removing unwanted skin lesions. Prices start from £195 for the removal of one skin lesion.
