Where Can Lesions Form on the Face?

Many types of lesions can appear across the body, including the face. These facial blemishes can be the most stressful, as they’re especially visible and can cause self-consciousness. Not to mention any worry that may accompany a mysterious growth. Plus, lesions come in many shapes and varieties and can appear as discolored spots caused by processes beneath the skin’s surface. They can also appear as raised areas or bumps.

Our physicians at Lone Star State Dermatology Clinic understand the consternation caused by an enigmatic, unaesthetic growth, so our board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jean-Denis Boucher is dedicated to offering you the most effective treatment options in San Antonio and Live Oak, TX. So, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns.


Where can a lesion form on the face?


A skin lesion is an abnormal growth or a portion of skin that has a different appearance or texture compared to the regions around it. Lesions can fall into various categorizations, such as skin tags, warts, moles, and keratoses (a common, noncancerous growth). They can appear just about anywhere on the face, depending on their origin, type, and surface area coverage.

And understandably, facial lesions can be distressing to many patients, as they occur in a visible region, detract from one’s aesthetics, and cause people to feel self-conscious. Of course, there’s also a health concern, and seeking a professional opinion can help detect the cause (and any potential underlying issue) so that we can offer you the most effective treatment and peace of mind in San Antonio and Live Oak, TX.


What will my lesion removal treatment plan entail?


Numerous aspects must be weighed, including overall health, skin type, and the cause of the lesion, to name a few, before we finalize a solution for your optimal outcome. But that’s why we’re here, to offer prompt and precise diagnosis and create a customized treatment plan based on your unique needs.

We’re happy to offer our patients multiple techniques for removing skin lesions. These techniques include laser removal, shaving, excision, and cryogenics. One effective option is electrodesiccation and curettage (ED&C), a straightforward shaving method that removes the lesion with a mild electric current. Other skin abnormalities, depending on their coverage and cause, may require more involvement to remove via surgical excision or Mohs surgery.

And, possibly in contrast to the misconceptions that some patients may harbor, removing a growth such as a mole can be perfectly safe and effective. As long it’s done by an experienced doctor in a professional setting. It’s not a painful or complicated procedure, either, as we employ local anesthetic to keep you as comfortable as possible.
