  • Syringoma treatment with hyfrecation: Syringomas are benign sweat gland tumors that usually appear as small bumps around the eyes, cheeks, and forehead. Hyfrecation is a minor surgical procedure that uses heat to destroy the sweat glands that produce syringomas. During the procedure, a local anesthetic is applied, and a small needle is used to deliver heat to the affected area.

  • Skin tag removal: Skin tags are small, benign growths that can appear on any part of the body, but are most commonly found on the neck, underarms, and eyelids. Skin tag removal is a minor surgical procedure that involves snipping off the skin tag with a pair of sterile scissors or a scalpel. In some cases, a local anesthetic is applied to the area before the procedure.

  • Full excision removal - benign mole: A benign mole is a type of skin growth that is usually harmless but may be removed if it is causing discomfort or if there is concern that it may be cancerous. Full excision removal involves cutting out the entire mole, along with a small amount of surrounding tissue, under local anesthesia.

  • Shave excision - benign mole: Shave excision is a procedure that involves removing a benign mole by shaving off the top layers of the skin with a surgical blade. This procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia and may be used for smaller, less complex moles.

  • Scalp biopsy (2 required for diagnosis of hair loss): Scalp biopsy is a procedure that involves removing a small sample of skin and hair follicles from the scalp for examination under a microscope. It is usually performed to diagnose the cause of hair loss, and two biopsies may be required for a more accurate diagnosis.

  • Steroid injections: Steroid injections are a type of treatment that involves injecting a small amount of steroid medication directly into a specific area of the skin. This treatment can be used to reduce inflammation and swelling caused by various skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
