Restore Your Delicate Facial Skin

There are many things that can mar the appearance of a face over the course of a life. Skin cancer, the most common cancer in the world, can cause growths or lesions on the skin that need to be removed. Skin tags, moles, and other skin growths can come about due to excessive sun exposure, age, or genetics. At The Piazza Center in Austin, Texas, Dr. Piazza and his skilled team can return each face to its original, unblemished state.

What Is A Skin Lesion?

In simple terms, a facial skin lesion is an abnormal growth or area of skin that differs from the surrounding skin. Lesions are caused by many different factors, which include genetics, sun exposure, and injury. Skin lesions may appear as moles, cysts, warts, skin tags, or other types of growths. Because lesions can be benign or malignant, it is vital to have to seek a medical evaluation for them.

Why Remove Skin Lesions?

The reasons for removing skin lesions is a highly personal decision that varies from person to person. For some, excising lesions is vital to their health, because some growths are cancerous, or can become so. For others, lesions can cause dissatisfaction with one’s appearance and low self-esteem, and social anxiety. Whatever the reason, Dr. Piazza can safely remove facial lesions, skin tags, and growths safely without causing scarring or other cosmetic issues.

What Happens During A Facial Lesion Excision?

When undergoing a facial lesion excision, the procedure is conducted in-office at The Piazza Center. The patient is given a local anesthetic to numb the area. Dr. Piazza will then use a scalpel to carefully remove the lesion, preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. Dr. Piazza then closes the incision, and a sterile dressing is applied to the area. The vast majority of patients find the process incredibly easy.

Dr. Piazza’s Approach To Facial Lesion Excision

Dr. Piazza is unique among his peers for his forward-thinking approach to skin procedures. Over the course of his decades-long career, Dr. Piazza has observed that a combination approach reliably delivers the best results. Dr. Piazza has identified three key areas to address when it comes to skin treatments:

  • Skin texture and tone
  • Muscle movement
  • Bone and fat composition

These three elements have to be considered in harmony for a successful outcome. Addressing just one of the areas above often yields subpar results that can make the patient look aged or unnatural. At the Piazza Center, Dr. Piazza and his entire team prioritize giving each patient the best results possible, so they are not only pleased with their investment but able to Live Confidently.

Recovery From Facial Lesion Excision

Most patients find recovery from facial lesion excision to be uneventful, as long as they follow the careful instructions Dr. Piazza gives them after their procedure. Patients can typically expect some mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the area for a few days following the excision. Over-the-counter pain medication and ice packs should more than suffice for relief from discomfort.

Patients should avoid strenuous activity or sun exposure until cleared by Dr. Piazza, to allow the incision to heal properly. In most cases, patients can return to their normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure.
