When to consider Facial Skin Blemish Removal
It’s hard to ignore a lesion, mole, wart or cyst when it’s on one of your most visible parts. An unsightly blemish on your face, neck, chest or shoulders can be a blow to your self-esteem and make you super self-consciousness. Depending on its size and location, it might even have you feeling downright unattractive!
On top of being seriously annoying, blemishes that come in regular contact with your clothing or other body parts can be subject to repeat irritation or injury. In the most severe cases, a strategically placed growth or lesion can reduce your mobility or even interfere with the proper function of your eyes or mouth.
If you’ve considered having a problem blemish removed for cosmetic or functional reasons, contact Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery. Dr. Ernest B. Robinson has extensive training and vast experience performing delicate resurfacing procedures using the latest laser and Dermabrasion techniques to remove lesions and growths from his patients’ most sensitive areas, seemingly without a trace.
What to expect during your blemish removal consultation.
During your blemish removal consultation, the doctor will examine your abnormality, recommend a treatment plan and discuss realistic expectations and the probable outcome of your laser resurfacing or Dermabrasion procedure, the safest, most effective methods for removing skin imperfections.
During your procedure.
For your in-office procedure, Dr. Robinson will apply local anesthesia and then use an abrading tool or laser light to remove the upper layers of skin, flattening your rough or elevated blemish and making it less prominent. The process can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more, depending on the size and type of blemish he’s treating.
There’s no downtime following cosmetic blemish removal, but you may experience some mild swelling, bruising or redness in the days following your procedure. Dr. Robinson will recommend a personalized skin care regimen to use while the site heals and advise you to protect it from direct sun exposure in order to achieve the best results.
