What are skin procedures?

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.

What problems can benefit from skin procedures?

At Rahma Health, the team uses skin procedures to treat various problems, including:

  • Acne
  • Warts and plantar warts
  • Skin tags
  • Atopic dermatitis (eczema)
  • Rosacea
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Sunburn
  • Dry skin
  • Moles

If you have a scaly or abnormal patch of skin, a procedure like a biopsy can determine if the growth is cancerous.

What are some standard skin procedures?

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.

Skin biopsy

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 will benefit me?

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.

How can I keep my skin healthy?

You can do various things to keep your skin healthy and problem-free, including:

  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Moisturizing your skin
  • Wearing sunscreen when outside
  • Not smoking

You can prevent warts by wearing shoes in public places like locker rooms and saunas and getting vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV).
