U Cosmetic uses two types of lasers to remove unwanted benign (non-cancerous) skin lesions such as skin tags, angiomas (raised red lesions), sebhorreic keratosis (raised and waxy age/liver spots), lentigines (brown flat sun spots) as well as benign moles and growths on the face, neck and body.  During your consultation, Dr Sangers and her staff will choose the safest and most effective laser, based on your skin type and type of lesion.  These lasers offer a treatment with low to no risk of scarring when compared to excision.  Some benign lesions such as cysts need excision and others may need a steroid injection.  Dr Sangers will evaluate your skin lesion concerns and determine which method is right for you.

While most skin lesions are benign or non-cancerous, some skin lesions can have a concerning appearance. Remember your A, B, C’s of skin cancer to help you determine if any of your lesions are concerning.  We recommend you follow up with your family physician if you suspect a bad lesion however Dr Sangers will address any concerning lesions seen in consultation.

  • Asymmetry – look for spots that are asymmetrical, not round
  • Border – look for spots with uneven borders.
  • Colour – look for spots with an unusual or uneven colour.
  • Diameter – look for spots larger than 6 or 7mm.
  • Evolving – has the mole or spot changed during the past few weeks or months

Contact U Cosmetic today for a consult for removal of your benign skin lesion concerns.  If you are not emotionally attached to your benign skin lesions, they can be removed with laser with excellent results at U Cosmetic.
