Skin procedures are minimally invasive treatments for common dermatological (skin) problems.
Almost everyone experiences a skin problem. Most, like rashes and bruises, go away on their own. But if your symptoms continue or affect your routine, it’s vital to seek medical help.
At Rahma Health, the team uses skin procedures to treat various problems, including:
If you have a scaly or abnormal patch of skin, a procedure like a biopsy can determine if the growth is cancerous.
The Rahma Health team offers several skin procedures, including:
Cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen to freeze a wart or plantar wart. Freezing your wart kills the virus that causes it. Several weeks after treatment, your skin begins peeling away, causing the wart to fall off.
During a skin biopsy, your Rahma Health provider collects a tissue sample with a scalpel or a biopsy punch. Then send your sample to a lab where it’s analyzed for precancerous or cancerous cells.
Skin tag removal
If you have skin tags under your arms or on your neck or upper chest, your doctor might suggest skin tag removal. Rahma Health offers several types of skin tag removal, including cryotherapy (freezing) and electrocautery, a procedure that uses electricity to heat up and burn off the skin tag.
Which skin procedure that most benefits you will depend on several things, including your age, symptoms, and goals. After a review of your medical records and a physical exam, the Rahma Health team makes personalized treatment recommendations.
You can do various things to keep your skin healthy and problem-free, including:
You can prevent warts by wearing shoes in public places like locker rooms and saunas and getting vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV).
