Lumps & Bumps

There are a number of skin conditions that cause lumps and bumps to appear on the surface or just below the skin. Whilst moles, skin tags, cysts, and lesions are common and usually harmless they can also be irritating and uncomfortable. Using the medically approved techniques and technology at The Female Health Clinic we can effectively remove skin lesions and restore the comfort and appearance of your skin, whatever the area.

Our Lumps & Bumps clinic

If you come along to our clinic we will assess the area of concern, diagnose the lesion(s) and advise the best method of approach and treatment plan. We use a technique called Electrosurgery and this treatment is from £150 per session. Usually, one session is all that is required however for larger or multiple lesions an additional treatment may be needed.

Lumps and bumps that can we can treat using electrosurgery:

Skin Tags. Moles. Milia. Red Veins. Spider Naevi. Blood Spots. Sebaceous Hyperplasia. Common Warts. Plane Warts. Verrucas. Xanthelasma. Age Spots. Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra. Seborrheic keratosis.

Electrosurgery – What is it?

Electrosurgery is the application of a high-frequency alternating polarity, electrical current to biological tissue as a means to cut, coagulate, desiccate, or fulgurate tissue. Its benefits include the ability to make precise cuts with limited blood loss

Electrosurgery – does it hurt?

The treatment can be momentarily uncomfortable. A little like a hot pin pricking the skin. If necessary a locally applied anaesthesia will be offered to you. The procedure is often over so quickly that most of the time this is not necessary. The treatment is very tolerable to nearly all patients.

Electrosurgery – what happens?

The treatment area will be assessed and thoroughly cleaned, the application of the current will be applied to the lesion to either cut it away or coagulate the tissue. Depending on the lesion it will either be removed straight away or will take 1 – 2 weeks to come away after treatment. A scab will form over the surface of the skin that has been treated and needs to be left to heal.

Electrosurgery – how long does it take?

The treatment itself is very quick. Most of the consultation will be completing paperwork and understanding your medical history that will need to be considered. Most treatments are completed within 1-5 minutes.

What will I look like afterwards?

Depending on the skin lesion you will likely have a small crust after the treatment that will need to be left alone to drop off.

What if my skin lesion looks suspicious?

We will not remove any lesion that we suspect may not be benign. We would refer you to a Dr within our clinic or back to your GP with a referral letter of your visit.
