Mole, Cyst and Skin Tag Removal

Skin lesions such as moles, cysts and skin tags are fairly common, and can occur almost anywhere on the body. Though rarely dangerous or medically significant, these skin imperfections may be a constant source of irritation and embarrassment for affected individuals.

We have an entire team of highly skilled dermatology experts dedicated to treating undesirable skin lesions. Following a one-on-one consultation, our experts will be able to design a personalised treatment plan for your mole, cyst or skin tag.

Skin lesion removal is often a quick and simple in-clinic procedure. A local anaesthetic may be administered beforehand to minimise discomfort. The particular technique used for removing your skin lesion will depend on factors such as its size and location. In most cases, skin lesions can be removed through excision (removal by scalpel). Stitches may be needed to close the wound. Moles may also be “shaved” down to the level of surrounding skin, while skin tags may simply be snipped off using surgical scissors. Additionally, liquid nitrogen may be used to “freeze off” precancerous lesions, warts or small skin tags.

Note: You can resume normal activities immediately after any in-clinic procedure.

  1. If I have a mole or a cyst is it dangerous?

    Our team of experts will thoroughly examine your skin lesion and determine whether or not it is problematic. Moles and cysts are usually benign (non-cancerous), but as a precautionary method, a skin biopsy may be requested to further examine the lesion.

  2. How would I decide which type of procedure is suitable for me?

    There are various treatment options available at Courthouse Clinics. Prior to your procedure, you will meet with one of our dermatology experts to examine your skin lesion and discuss your cosmetic goals in-depth. Based on this information, we will be able to guide you through the decision-making process.

  3. How long does the procedure take?

    In general, cyst, mole or wart removal is a quick out-patient procedure in our clinic. The removal process will typically take less than an hour.

  4. What is a skin biopsy?

    If your skin lesion looks suspicious, a skin biopsy may be requested. During a skin biopsy, a sample of skin tissue will be removed and sent to a pathology laboratory for microscopic analysis. The results of a biopsy will allow your dermatologist to make a diagnosis and devise an appropriate treatment plan, if necessary.

  5. What is cryotherapy?

    Cryotherapy, also known as cryosurgery, uses liquid nitrogen– a cold liquefied gas– to effectively “freeze off” abnormal areas of the skin. Liquid nitrogen may cause stinging and mild pain during treatment, but discomfort typically subsides within a few minutes. During recovery, the treatment area may swell and blister. The skin growth will eventually come off as a scab, revealing healthy new skin underneath.

    There is no downtime associated with cryotherapy. Full activity may be resumed immediately following treatment. During recovery the treatment area may swell and blister. Your wart will eventually come off as a scab, revealing healthy new skin underneath. The recovery process may take a few weeks. Additionally, you may need a total of 3 to 4 cryotherapy treatments to get rid of your wart. Treatment sessions are typically performed in 1 to 4 week intervals.
