If you have developed a skin lesion that is either cancerous or simply unwanted, cryosurgery may be used for removal. Baldone Reina Dermatology offers cryosurgery treatments to men and women living in Slidell, Covington, Mandeville and New Orleans, LA.
What is Cryosurgery Skin Lesions Removal?
Cryosurgery skin lesion removal uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy skin lesions. After being frozen, the treated lesion will die and fall off over the weeks following treatment. Cryosurgery can be used to treat a number of skin lesions, including:
- Skin Tags
- Actinic Keratosis
- Small Skin Cancers
How Much Does Cryosurgery Skin Lesions Removal Cost?
If you elect to undergo cryosurgery skin lesion removal at Baldone Reina Dermatology, you will first have a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists. During this consultation, we will assess your current condition and your treatment goals in order to determine the best approach for your treatment. In some cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. Once these variables are considered and your eligibility for insurance coverage is determined, we will be able to provide you with the cost of treatment and any associated fees.
How is Cryosurgery Skin Lesions Removal Performed?
During the cryosurgery treatment, we will spray the liquid nitrogen onto the desired area. We will continue applying liquid nitrogen until the skin lesion is completely covered and surrounded. This process will create a very cold sensation in the treatment area, however, it only lasts a few minutes. Cryosurgery for skin lesion removal only takes a few minutes to perform.
What Can I Expect After Cryosurgery Skin Lesions Removal?
After your cryosurgery treatment, the treated skin will die, and may begin to blister or scab. It is best not to pick at the treated area, as it will naturally fall off within a week or two. At this point, the treated skin lesion should be completely removed.
