You may be a candidate for removal of a facial lesion or mole if you are concerned about the appearance of any lesion located on the face or neck.

Procedures - Non Invasive
Non invasive procedures may be available to improve the appearance of certain facial lesions. Call for a consultation with Dr. Pearson to discuss your concerns.

In-office procedures are available for removal of facial lesions or moles. In most cases, topical or local anesthesia is used to anesthetize the area of concern. The lesion is removed with minimal disruption of surrounding tissues. In some cases, sutures may be used to ensure optimal healing. Sutures are usually removed within 5-7 days.

Following facial lesion removal, you can expect minimal swelling and soreness which is well controlled without prescription medications in most cases. Any sutures are typically removed between days 5 and 7. Makeup can be used at this point to camouflage any bruising or scars. Swelling and bruising are generally minimal. You can resume most normal activities immediately, except for intense exercise, which may be resumed in 1-2 weeks. Most people are able to return to work the next day, but may choose to remain away from work until the sutures are removed. Any incisional scars are strategically placed with the goal of concealment, and are usually minimally noticeable after sufficient time has passed for them to mature.
