Removal of benign spots.

Coagulation

Over the years, unsightly skin irregularities or warts, also known as benign skin tumours or skin tags, can unfortunately develop. Huidzorg West’s skin therapists are able to remove a range of benign skin spots including age warts, xanthelasma and benign moles and pigmentation spots by means of coagulation treatment.

What does the treatment involve?

Coagulation

Depending on the “type” of spot, it is treated by electrocoagulation. A small needle is used to heat the benign skin defect during coagulation treatment. The skin defect is then expelled by the body and vanishes.

At Huidzorg West we often combine coagulation treatment with curettage, or the cryopen. Each benign skin spot is examined to determine the most suitable treatment method.

The treatment

Step 11

The area in which the benign skin spot is located is thoroughly cleansed

Step 22

The skin spot is then removed by electrocoagulation. The benign skin tumour is burnt superficially, causing a scab to form on the treated area

Step 33

The skin spot is treated with an after-treatment cream

Frequently Asked Questions

Coagulation

Benign skin patches can consist of various structures such as keratin, veins, pigment and connective tissue. Depending on various indicators, the skin therapist determines whether the spot should be further checked by the general practitioner or dermatologist.

Depending on the type and number of skin patches, an average of 1-3 coagulation treatments are required. During an initial consultation, the skin therapist will estimate the number of treatments required.

The treatment for benign skin spots can be sensitive and you may also feel heat. Depending on your pain threshold and location, the skin therapist may recommend a sedative cream.

Treatment of some benign skin abnormalities lasts 15 minutes.

After the treatment, the skin will be red and slightly swollen. A scab will form on the treated skin, which will heal in 7-14 days.

For the first 6-8 weeks after treatment, the treated skin is particularly sensitive to UV radiation. We recommend protecting the skin with an SPF30 or higher.

There are several treatment methods that can be used to remove benign skin spots. These are: cryotherapy, electrocoagulation, curettage and laser therapy.

Depending on health insurance, the treatment may be reimbursed. As a rule, treatment of benign skin spots is not covered by the supplementary insurance. Check the policy conditions to see if the treatment is (partly) reimbursed.
