Benign Skin Lesions & Wart Removal
Some skin lesions are considered cosmetic and harmless, including warts, verrucae, spider naevi, skin tags, and seborrheic keratoses. The NHS are unlikely to remove these cosmetic skin lesions, but we can with Cryotherapy or Electrosurgery.
- Cryotherapy – This method uses a CryoPen to freeze the skin lesion with liquid nitrogen. The treatment will sting a bit, and the lesion will blister and eventually fall off after a few days.
- Electrosurgery – This method creates a superficial burn with an electronic radiofrequency or plasma device. The treated area will heal with hardly a mark, and local anaesthesia will be applied to make it as pain-free as possible.
If we discover any suspicious skin lesions, such as changing pigmented lesions or rodent ulcers, these will be referred to your GP.
Our skin clinic is based in Bolton, and we work with clients across Manchester to remove warts and other skin lesions.
