How Do You Treat Skin Lesions?
At Skin Dermatology, Dr. Lamoureux treats skin lesions based on the severity and agreed to treatment plan. If the skin lesion is determined to be suspicious for a skin cancer or abnormality, Dr. Lamoureux starts by taking a skin biopsy. Once those results are received, she will advise you of the results and discuss the appropriate treatment options. Dr. Lamoureux may utilize a variety of techniques to remove your skin lesion. These methods include excision, freezing (cryotherapy), scraping and burning (electrodesiccation and curettage), cautery, and laser treatments.
