Growths on the skin and their removal
Are they getting in the way and you're wondering what to do with them? Until you know what it is, don't try self-medication. We'll tell you why, and also how to get rid of them in Dermarevolt. Aesthetically and painlessly, of course.
Skin growths increase with age, so the best thing to do is to get rid of them continuously, with a dermatologist. This prevents them from getting bigger and also from leaving a more noticeable mark after removal. In addition, you also save time spent at the doctor's office. Don't hesitate to visit him even if you are uncomfortable with the change in their appearance or size, or if too many formations have appeared at the same time in the last few months.
Don't worry. Their removal belongs to the routine procedures of corrective dermatology. In most cases, the method of their removal is at the discretion of the doctor and in agreement with the patient. Skin growths are gently and effectively removed by cryotherapy - freezing with liquid nitrogen or so-called electrocautery.
Electrocautery, also known as electric needle, is used for targeted destruction of tissues with electric current, most commonly fibromas, angiomas, and skillfully removes enlarged small blood vessels that form on the face.
Will it hurt?
The removal of skin formations is quick, you do not have to worry about the painfulness of the procedure, you will only feel a gentle pinch. There is no need to worry about scarring after healing either. Just follow the dermatologist's recommendations.
Will you also remove the coils on my legs?
We can't help you with this problem. It is necessary to make an appointment at the angiologist's office.
At the stopwatch
Fibromas look like tiny skin nodules the same shade or slightly darker than your skin. They usually grow on small, thin 'stalks'. The cause of their formation is heredity, but also skin friction. They also naturally appear in older age. Have you inadvertently scratched them or caught them on your clothes? Just don't experiment and don't try any tutorials from the internet. You can bring on inflammation and infection. This can also be the result of, for example, following the "old wives' tale" advice to tie them. See a dermatologist.
These are hemangiomas, clusters of blood vessels. They are largely due to heredity. The reasons for their removal when present on the skin are also aesthetic. The red raised dots are elegantly removed by electrocautery.
Red 'moles' on the baby's body
If you find these formations, also called strawberry moles, on your newborn's skin, do not overlook them and show them to the doctor. Be careful not to injure them. The skin doctor will measure the hemangioma, and you will monitor the development. It gradually absorbs, fades, and disappears on its own mostly by the age of 7. If a child has multiple hemangiomas on the body, they need to be screened to rule out their occurrence on internal organs.
Spots or warts?
Stretch warts are not a classic type of wart. They are not viral in nature. Although it sounds repulsive, these unaesthetic-looking formations are not only found on the body of the elderly. Professionally, seborrhoeic verruca of yellow to black colour occurs due to genetic predisposition at the age of 30 and above. In the form of spots, they can occur on the backs of the hands, in the form of warts on the torso. They are often accompanied by itching. For the sake of the choice of the method of removal, it is necessary to distinguish this type of verruca from a pigmented formation.
Yellowish fatty formations
The cause of the formation of xanthelasma present around the eyelids is genetics. The culprit for the accumulation of fat into this form can also be a disorder of fat metabolism, which needs to be addressed professionally. However, xanthelasmas do not disappear by stabilizing the fat levels on their own. The deposit of deposited fat is removed by disrupting the skin surgically after numbing with local anesthesia.
Hard white balls - is it a rash?
The type of growths raised above the surface of the skin, especially in places where it is thinnest, also includes small balls (cysts) with a hard white head. Have you tried pushing them out? Can't? In that case, these are undoubtedly so-called milia. They have nothing to do with the rash. Their contents must be removed by gently microcutting the skin. You'd better leave their removal to a professional, as the wrong procedure can damage your skin, cause inflammation and prolong the healing process. Milia are formed by trapping dead skin cells beneath the surface of the skin. If they form frequently, consult a skin care professional.
How to take care of the skin after removing growths?
In order to contribute to accelerating healing and avoiding infection, it is necessary to observe certain precautions. Wait a week or two after the procedure before visiting swimming pools and saunas and do not expose the treated skin to the sun for at least a month. Even after healing, it is necessary to use a cream with the highest protection factor.
