What are small in-office skin procedures?

What are small in-office skin procedures?

Small in-office skin procedures are a group of outpatient treatments designed to remove common skin concerns, like moles, cysts, warts, and skin tags. Treatment occurs under local anesthesia and doesn’t require downtime. After your appointment, you can return to work and other activities immediately.

What are some examples of small in-office skin procedures?

Loomis Medical Clinic offers several types of in-office skin procedures, including:

Skin tag removal

Skin tags are harmless growths that typically form on the neck, eyelids, or underarms. Some dangle from a stalk, while others connect directly to the skin. Your provider might recommend skin tag removal if you have a skin tag that’s painful, itchy, or interfering with your vision.

Wart removal

Warts are small, round growths that typically form on the palms of the hands or the weight-bearing areas of the feet. They develop when the human papillomavirus (HPV) infiltrates your body through small cracks or cuts in your skin.

Cyst removal

Cysts are skin growths filled with fluid or pus. They’re usually harmless but can be uncomfortable, depending on their location.

During cyst removal, your provider uses a sharp tool, like a scalpel, to drain the cyst and then closes the wound with stitches or a bandage.

Mole removal

Moles are one of the most common skin growths. They’re small brown or black spots caused by the pigment-producing cells (melanocytes) in your skin. Moles are typically harmless, but some become cancerous. At Loomis Medical Clinic, we offer cosmetic mole removal and removal of suspicious moles for skin cancer testing.

What do small in-office skin procedures involve?

At Loomis Medical Clinic, small in-office skin procedures take 30-60 minutes on average. Your provider cleans your skin with an antiseptic solution and administers a local anesthetic to numb the growth and surrounding tissue.

After the anesthetic sets in, your provider uses tools to remove the growth. Depending on your needs, that might mean liquid nitrogen, a handheld laser, or a surgical tool like a scalpel. Once the skin growth is removed, your provider applies stitches or a bandage. Then, they provide care instructions and explain how to prevent infection.
