Removal of Skin Growths

We treat your skin imperfections to perfection.

A smooth, supple skin surface is our beauty ideal. Skin growths, on the other hand, not only spoil our appreciation of ourselves, but the potential of them becoming stuck in clothing, for example, also comes with a risk of injury.

Skin growths can also have hygienic consequences: uneven surfaces, for e.g. seborrhoeic keratoses, can promote bacterial growth. With the ablative Erbium YAG laser, we can remove skin growths easily without an increased risk of scarring.

Your questions. Our answers.

Which skin growths can be removed?

With the ablative Erbium-YAG laser we remove the following skin changes:

  • Raised birthmarks (dermal nevi)
  • Seborrhoeic warts (seborrhoeic keratoses)
  • Sun-induced freckles (solar lentigines)
  • Actinic keratoses
  • Xanthelasma
  • Syringomas
  • Scars
How does an Erbium laser work?

With the MCL31 DermaBlate Erbium YAG laser we can ablate individual skin layers to micrometer precision. Healing of the wound results in a structural improvement in the collagen, which is why the procedure also smoothes superficial wrinkles.

Is the treatment painful?

We perform the treatment under local anesthetic.

Does the treatment need to be repeated?

As a rule, one treatment is sufficient. If, in rare cases, the growths reappear, we are able to treat them again.

What does one look like after the treatment?

The skin may feel warm immediately after the treatment. Treated areas heal as for an abrasive wound, with the formation of a scab. In order to keep the scab supple and to prevent bacterial infections, we prescribe an antiseptic cream with a Vaseline base for the first days after the treatment. Once the scabs have loosened after about 10 to 14 days, the newly formed, initially slightly red skin appears underneath. This redness disappears quickly and can be concealed with a make-up concealer. In some cases, so-called post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can occur, which usually disappears after a few weeks.

What should be considered after the treatment?

In order to reduce the risk of unnecessary scarring, the scabs must not be removed and the healing skin must be protected for as long as possible. Because the skin is more sensitive to UV after the laser treatment, a high sun protection factor (SPF 50+) is required for the first four weeks after the laser treatment. Sunbathing and tanning beds can cause unwanted permanent pigment changes.
