What Are Skin Lesions?

Sometimes we develop unsightly skin lesions in very obvious locations. This can create self-consciousness and psychological distress. Cosmetic lesion removal in Lexington, KY is a service that many people seek out to improve on their looks.  While this is a cosmetic procedure, your medical insurance will not cover the costs.  However, we work with our clients to ensure that their treatments are both affordable and precise. There are two types of lesions that we encounter in our office.  One is a vascular type while the other is segmented.  Either way, we are prepared to treat them all using our lesion removal treatment options in Lexington, KY.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Type of Skin Lesions Can The Anti-Aging Institute Treat?

Vascular Lesions

Vascular lesions are lesions that are abnormalities of the skin and tissues. These sorts of lesions are discoloring of the skin or commonly called birthmarks. Most people do not like having a birthmark on their face, which is why this treatment is perfect for them. There are different scientific names for the various lesions, however, at the end of the day, basically these are discoloration of the skin. They may contain bumps or have a different texture than the skin around them.

Segmented Lesions

Segmented lesions are lesions that grow out from the body as what you think of when you hear skin lesions.  This can be additional cartilage or bumps in the skin.  For these purposes, we will remove the lesions and have them tested for cancer.  This procedure is typically covered by insurance, as it is considered a medical procedure to ensure you don’t have some form of cancer.  Skin tags, however, are considered segmented lesions and are not covered by insurance as they are not harming anything.  However, many people that have skin tags seek to have them removed for cosmetic reasons and we can help you with that.

What Happens During Cosmetic Lesion Removal Treatments?

Most people are awake during these procedures. Dr. Bacha may apply local anesthesia to numb the area so you will not feel pain. He may also use stitches to close your wound. Most of these procedures last about 30 minutes. However, in some cases, it can take a little longer. Most people can go back to their normal routine on the same day or the day after the procedure.

Are There Any Side Effects To Cosmetic Lesion Removal?

A small amount of bleeding and bruising can be expected. Dr. Fadi Bacha will try to minimize this as much as possible during the procedure by either clotting small blood vessels using electrosurgery or tying off bleeding vessels with a stitch.

Does Insurance Cover The Treatment?
