The shave excision is a simple local anesthesia technique to remove skin lesions that rise above the skin surface. A scalpel or blade is used to surgically “shave off” the elevated portion of the lesion which leaves a scrape in place of the lesion. This scrape heals exactly the same as a razor cut that occurs from too close of a shave.
This procedure is commonly used for moles, warts, keratoses, scars, and other benign skin lesions.
Treatment results will vary, talk to a practitioner to see if this treatment or procedure is right for you.
