Most of the skin lesions are harmless and do not need treatment from the point of view of the general health of the patient. However, many patients desire to undergo treatment of skin for cosmetic reasons. Different modes of treatment are available for management of skin conditions, including the use of medications and surgical procedures. Some benign skin conditions can be treated with non-surgical procedures. However, larger skin lesions need to be removed surgically. The skin lesions that have the tendency to turn malignant need more careful intervention. The different modes of treatment of skin are given below:
Use of Medications:
InjectionsUse of medications like corticosteroids and anti-inflammatory drugs is common in the treatment of skin problems. The approach in treating the skin conditions is symptomatic. Also, the underlying condition responsible for the skin lesions should be detected and removed for effective treatment of skin. Most of the skin conditions are caused due to allergies. Efforts should be made to find the cause of allergy, and contact or exposure of the patient to that allergen should be avoided. Some skin conditions are caused due to medical disorders the patient is suffering from. For example, diabetic patients are more prone to suffer from skin infections, diabetic foot and non-healing ulcers. Care should be taken to control the blood sugar levels within normal limits for treating these conditions effectively. Also, patients suffering from conditions causing reduced blood supply to the parts of body, also suffer from skin disorders. Proper treatment of the condition responsible for the skin lesions is needed in this case.
The use of corticosteroids is common in treatment of skin conditions causing redness and itching of the skin. Oral corticosteroids are usually prescribed when the skin in large areas of the body is affected. Oral corticosteroids are also useful for treating skin infections. Patients can make use of topical corticosteroids for relieving the redness and itching of skin in some parts of the body. They are particularly useful in contact dermatitis in which a localized part of the skin that has come in direct contact with the irritant object has caused redness and itching of that part.
Surgical Procedures for Treatment of Skin:
Several benign and malignant skin lesions can be treated with surgical procedures. Benign lesions, though harmless, need to be removed for cosmetic reasons, especially if they are on prominent locations like face or are very large in size. Surgical removal of malignant skin lesion is very essential. An early detection of malignant skin lesion is needed to prevent the lesion from progressing to next stage of cancer and to avoid spread of the lesions. Several diagnostic procedures including biopsy of the lesion is essential to diagnose the conditions. While performing surgical removal of the malignant lesions, care should be taken to excise a part of the normal surrounding tissue to ensure complete excision of the cancerous growth. Also, the lymph nodes to which the spread of cancerous growth may have occurred also need to be removed. Other skin conditions requiring surgical therapies include cosmetic procedures; like dermabrasion. This is performed for skin resurfacing to give a smoother appearance to the skin. Other skin tightening procedures for treatment of fine lines and wrinkles also need surgical intervention. Removal of skin lesions that are benign can be done on an outpatient basis. The time required for excision of benign skin lesions depends upon the size and location of the lesion. These procedures can be done under local anesthesia.
Skin Treatment with Laser Cosmetic Surgery: Laser therapy is used for the treatment of skin from a cosmetic point of view. It can be used for treating several skin conditions including acne vulgaris, fine lines, wrinkles, acne rosacea and dermatitis.
Liquid Nitrogen for Skin Treatment: The use of cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen can be helpful in treating many skin conditions. It involves use of cryospray or cryoprobe. In this procedure, nitrogen is applied over the skin lesions for a short duration. The application of liquid nitrogen depends upon the size and location of the lesion and the depth of freeze. The repetition of therapy may be needed in some cases. Use of a technique called double freeze thaw is needed for the treatment of skin cancers and viral warts that are resistant to other forms of treatment.
Carbon Dioxide Snow: Skin treatments that use carbon dioxide cryotherapy involve a combination of a cylinder of carbon dioxide or a slush and acetone. This mixture can be applied over the skin lesion directly.
Proper and efficient treatment of skin involves correct and early diagnosis of the condition. Also, detection and removal of the underlying causative factor is essential for effective treatment and prevention of relapse of the condition.
A skin lesion is a general term which is used to specify just about any type of skin lump, such as cysts, moles, freckles, birthmarks, skin rashes, blisters, insect bites as well as tattoos. Depending on the kind of skin lesion, its removal and treatment could vary from a mild treatment procedure to major corrective surgery. The majority of lesions on the skin do not result in any serious complications. However, an individual might choose to have them removed due to practical or perhaps aesthetic reasons. There are different types of skin lesion removal methods which are used based on the kind of skin lesion an individual has. Some lesions, for instance benign or non cancerous warts, could be treated with the help of non-surgical procedures. However, larger sized skin lesions or perhaps lesions that require a precise removal procedure might need to be surgically removed.
Yet again, depending on type, a skin lesion might first be biopsied, wherein a small part is removed and then tested for cancer. Following this the skin lesion is likely to be removed by way of excision, using a scalpel; destruction through cryosurgery or electro surgery and even through use of laser treatments. The physician may advise you to undergo surgery in case you have a skin lesion which shows any signs of turning malignant (for instance, a mole which has changed color or shape). The removed tissue would be sent to a research laboratory in order to examine the type of cells as well as determine whether or not the lesion is benign or perhaps malignant.
Skin lesion removal is generally performed as an outpatient procedure. This means you undergo the procedure and then go back home the same day.
Based on the size of the lesion and where it is located on the body, skin lesions could be removed at your physician’s clinic or perhaps at the hospital. The procedure for removal of skin lesions is normally performed under local anesthetics. This prevents pain at the area; however you may still be able to feel some activity. You will still stay conscious all through the procedure.
The physician will discuss with you about what is going to happen before, during as well as following the procedure, and also regarding any pain you might experience. This can be your opportunity to comprehend what is likely to happen, and you can help yourself by simply preparing the questions to ask with regard to the risks, advantages as well as any alternatives to the procedure. This enables you to be well informed, so that you can give your consent with regard to the procedure to go ahead, that you might be asked to do by way of signing the consent form.
It is extremely important to discuss the procedure with your physician so that you know what you should expect. For instance, if your physician surgically removes the skin lesion, he or she might need to remove some skin surrounding the lesion, causing a bigger wound than you might expect.
The procedure that your physician utilizes in order to get rid of the lesion would depend upon factors such as its size as well as its location on the body. Your physician will suggest which procedure is best suited for you.
What Happens during the Skin Lesion Removal Procedure?
- Some skin lesions can be shaved down to the level of the surrounding skin, either by using a surgical blade or perhaps a laser (a high-energy beam of light) in order to destroy the skin tissue.
- Skin tags might be simply snipped off using surgical scissors.
- Other skin lesions, which include suspected cancer of the skin, could be entirely cut out and then the wound closed with the help of stitches.
- Warts may just be frozen off using liquid nitrogen (this procedure is referred to as cryotherapy) or perhaps treated using creams such as the ones which contain salicylic acid.
- Certain lesions on the skin could be treated with the help of photodynamic therapy. In this procedure a chemical is applied on the lesion after which it is exposed to light. This process activates the chemical in order to destroy the lesion. However, this particular treatment might not always be available.
- Your physician would apply a dressing on the wound if required but a majority of wounds heal much better when they are left uncovered.
How Exactly does Laser Treatment for Vascular and Pigmented Lesions Work?
The red and brown discoloration treatment works by exactly targeting the unwanted lesions. The brown discolorations, also referred to as pigmented lesions (sun spots, age spots, etc.), are darker as compared to the rest of the skin and they absorb a lot more laser energy in contrast to surrounding skin.
The red discolorations, also referred to as vascular lesions (small veins, cherry angiomas, rosacea, and so on.) are overgrown or perhaps enlarged blood vessels. Preferably, heating vessel walls causes them to weaken, fall and then eventually get absorbed by the body.

What are the key advantages of using Harmony XL treatment
Ageing is an inevitable and completely natural process where by there is no escape for anybody. No one really likes the symptoms of ageing to manifest. Therefore, everyone looks out for possible procedures to be able to cover up the manifestations associated with ageing. Going on a diet and working out, is one of the most common approach towards looking slimmer and fitter which in turn makes you look younger. However, there are actually some areas of fat which dieting and exercising are not able to get rid of.
The market these days is flooded with a large number of products and treatment procedures to help tighten up the skin, get rid of cellulite, as well as firm the body. The fact is that, the effectiveness of most of these creams and treatment procedures is extremely marginal. Despite the fact that surgery might prove to be a highly effective strategy, the side effects as well as the risks involved need to be thoroughly considered. Fortunately, radio frequency has proven itself to be an effective alternative for the purpose of skin treatment.
What is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening?
Radio frequency treatment using sound waves is a safe and non-invasive procedure for tightening up loose or lax skin around the eyes, forehead, cheeks, mouth, jaw line and certain areas of the body. This treatment procedure is an excellent way of lowering the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sags, etc. in addition to improving skin tone as well as texture. Additionally, it is an excellent procedure for the treatment of active acne.
How does Radio Frequency Treatment Work?
The process of skin tightening involves the use of radio waves in order to vibrate water molecules present within the tissues. The vibrations lead to friction which causes heat. This is actually similar to rubbing the hands together during the cold winters to generate heat. The heat will cause shrinking of collagen fibers, which will result in skin tightening. This procedure will take about 6 months to finish and the ultimate assessment is conducted around 2 months following the fourth session.
Simply by supplying the radio waves even more deeply they will penetrate through the epidermis directly into the fat as well as the cellulite beneath. This heat produced by the radio waves leads to the rupture of the fat cell membranes. Shrinking of the fat cells will then occur, which in turn will reduce the all round thickness of the fatty layers. There are no fat cells which are in fact removed or even destroyed during this entire process.
Advantages of Radio Frequency Skin Treatment
Tissue Retraction: This generated heat results in local shrinkage of the collagen fibers, to instantly make the skin tighter.
New collagen formation: Simply by heating the skin, the production of brand new collagen is stimulated. The skin tightening effect will be postponed and may even take 3 to 6 months to become visible again.
Improved circulation: Radio frequency will in addition boost the blood as well as lymphatic flow. This will aid in a more effective supply of oxygen as well as better clearance of harmful toxins to further minimize the effects of the aging process.
Active acne cases are improved via the actions of the heat suppressing sebaceous gland.
Is Radio Frequency Treatment able to Take Care of all the Areas of the Body?
The thighs, buttocks as well as abdominal area respond very well to this specific treatment that tightens up the overlying skin and at the exact same time, prevents the slackened skin appearance that may often accompany weight reduction alone.
Radio Frequency is appropriate for small, problematic areas, for instance knee joints as well as Bingo Wings, usually hard to tackle with dieting and exercise. It requires eight to ten fortnightly sessions, depending on the seriousness of the condition. You can notice an improvement while in the course of treatment and the skin tightening procedure could continue for approximately 3 months following the final session.
Who is Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Suitable for?
Radio frequency is ideal for people that are concerned about lifting as well as firming up their skin, not to mention refining the visual appearance of wrinkles as well as fine lines. It could also be utilized as a preventative treatment method for skin which is beginning to display the signs and symptoms of aging.
How many Treatment Sessions are Recommended?
A course of 10 treatments is highly recommended, with each treatment taking place every couple of weeks. Following a course of treatments, routine maintenance treatments are generally suggested after every 12 weeks. Clients who suffer from active acne might require continuous treatments every 2 to 3 weeks to help them maintain their clear skin.
How does this Treatment Feel?
A client will tend to experience a warm sensation that will gradually start to get hotter and hotter. The majority of clients will quickly realize that these treatments make them very comfortable and help them to relax too.
Will the Effects be Permanent?
Unfortunately, within this particular field of ageing as well as body changes, absolutely nothing is permanent. The majority of people realize that a face lift will most likely last for many years, however in the case of people who have extremely elastic skin, this is often reduced to a couple of months. Pertaining to facial skin tightening, we think that a majority of clients will see improvements lasting around 2 years. However, some clients will decide to occasionally go through top up sessions to help keep the effect going. As this treatment method in the form of monthly sessions in the case of the face, it is feasible to provide top ups in this manner.
Radio Frequency is repeated as often as required. This particular treatment is utilized, from time to time, in the form of a management system, wherever suitable. In the event the weight is maintained, then the final results should really be comparatively longer lasting.
Pigmentation is defined as the coloring of the epidermis and if an individual is healthy, the individual’s skin will appear to be normal in colour.

However, a number of affected individuals experience particularly extraordinary responses.
Depigmentation Treatment together with Cosmelan:
The Cosmelan formula functions by simply obstructing the melanin-producing enzyme, referred to as Tyrosinase. This eventually ends up in a decrease in the generation of melasma. With no Tyrosinase, the melanin molecules that are known to cause skin discoloration tend to get broken up well before they may even develop. This treatment is administered in 2 stages. The primary phase consists of the application of a facial mask by certain aesthetic specialists. This mask will gently peel away the upper layer of pigmented skin.
After around 8 to 12 hours, simply wash it off. A number of customers observe an instantaneous improvement when it comes to skin clarity; the moment the mask is removed.

Aging actually results due to a decrease in the production of collagen, which in turn results in fine lines, wrinkles, as well as brown spots on the skin.

During this stage, opting for a treatment procedure immediately is critical in order to control these undesirable aging signs.

Our skin, being a seamless organ is a valuable asset for any person. Scar tissues can be formed over skin as a result of trauma, surgery, burn or injuries and can make the skin look ugly.
Skin is like a treasured piece of silk. Even a smallest tear or mark over this piece makes it look ugly. We, as humans, experience many such tears and marks over our skin that can make a lot of difference to the way the skin looks. In turn, it also affects the overall appearance and personality of the person. Some of thesemarks are self inflicted while some are beyond our control. We can cope up with these marks or scars if they are small in size or are not over prominent visible parts of body like face. Some of the scars are easy to hide. But, the scars that cannot be hidden and are cosmetically disapproving, need to be treated in order to diminish their appearance or for completely removing them.
How are the Scars Formed?
Formation of scars is a natural process of body for healing. Several factors can affect the formation of scars. Size and depth of the injury and location of wound are the main deciding factors for the development of scars. Age of person, hereditary factors, sex and also ethnic origin of person can affect the response of body to the formation of scars.
Types of Scars:
There are several types of scars that are mentioned below:
Keloid scars: Keloid scars are formed as a result of aggressive process of healing. The scar formation in this case extends beyond the part that is injured. Keloid scars can also affect the movements of body especially if they are large and are located over joints. Treatment of keloid scars includes injections of steroids over the scars or surgical removal of them. Use of cryotherapy is beneficial for treating small sized keloids. Cryotherapy consists of freezing techniques by using liquid nitrogen. Prevention of formation of keloid can be done with the help of gel pads containing silicon or by pressure treatment after any injury. Keloids are more common in people with darker skin.
Contracture scars: These types of scars occur over burnt skin. There is tightening of skin in this that impairs the mobility of joints. These scars can also go deep and affect nerves and muscles.
Hypertrophic scars: These are raised, red colored scars that look very similar to keloid scars. However, these scars do not encroach over the normal skin tissue. Treatment of these scars can be done by local injections of corticosteroids for reducing inflammation at the site.
Acne scars: Patients suffering for severe acne are prone to developing acne scars. Acne scars can be of different types like deep scars, angular scars or wavelike scars. The treatment of acne scars depends upon the types of acne.
Treatment of scars can be done in several ways, which are mentioned below:
Prescription or non-prescription creams, gels and ointments: Scars caused by surgical incisions, trauma or injuries can be treated with these products. If the patient has undergone cosmetic surgery and the scarring has occurred as an effect of this procedure, then the cosmetic surgeon can advice about the suitability of these products. Use of local or systemic steroids along with anti-histaminic agents can be helpful in reducing the itching and sensitiveness of these scars.
If the scarring has occurred due to acne, your dermatologist can advice you about the proper treatment of acne that can help in reducing the scarring. Use of pressure techniques and sheetings of silicon gel can also help in treating acne scars. These techniques are useful as preventive measures as well, in patients suffering from acne.
Surgical methods: Many options are available for the treatment of deep scars and wounds. Selection of effective treatment for each patient depends upon the location and depth of scar. Excision of scars, dermabrasion, skin grafting and laser treatment are some of the modes of treatment that can be used for removing scars. In skin grafting, removal of skin is done from one part of the body that is grafted over the scarred skin. This procedure is performed in scars caused by burns. Surgical excision can help in treating scars that cause impairment of mobility and function. These procedures can be done under local anesthesia. However, use of general anesthesia or oral sedatives drugs can also be done in some cases. Patients suffering from scars due to plastic surgery, cosmetic procedure or after any other surgical procedure should wait for atleast a year before they make a decision to undergo any treatment for scars, as many such scars tend to disappear spontaneously over a period of time.
Injections: Protruding scars like hypertrophic scars or keloids can be treated with local injection of medications. Steroidal injections over the scar tissue can help in reducing the scars to a great extent. These injections can be used as an only therapy for patients or can be used in combination with other therapies. Some other types of injections like collagen injections or fillers are also used for pitted scars. But, they do not offer a permanent solution to the problem.
