What are skin growths and blemishes (skin lesions) that can be removed?
- Moles/Nevi: pigmented or non-pigmented protrusions (from neurological irritation or solar exposure, or affected by genetics);
- Skin tags: many pigmented or non-pigmented thin-based protrusions (usually from hormonal imbalance);
- Senile hemangiomas: small to large red “blood blisters” (usually from capillary fragility and damage);
- Keratoses: hard scaly protrusions (many types - age, genetics, and sun related), occasionally pre-malignant;
- Other lesions: xanthomas (fatty white dots/areas near eyes); warts/condylomas (genital/anal/ cutaneous), etc. Many blemishes are congenital (existing from birth) as birthmarks are—and cancer may start within them!
Why remove them?
- Appearance: No scarring, pitting, or regrowth in the vast majority of cases. Excellent results on the face. Very minimal scarring with flat, deeper pigmented (riskier) lesions.
- Safety: Reduced risk of skin cancer. No more watching moles for dangerous changes, when riskier, invasive, scarring procedures (that may spread cancer) become justified.
- Prevention: Reduced neurological irritation to the brain and spinal cord from asymmetrical skin growths and protrusions. Skin should be smooth!
- Comfort: No more catching of moles on clothing, jewelry, or combs (in scalp growths).
- Convenience: Usually requires a single treatment (a few minutes). No medical facility needed. No cutting, stitching, burning, or freezing, with their risk of infection and scars. Guarantee In rare cases of regrowth or incomplete results, there is no charge for re-treatment.
How are they removed? Dr. Tel-Oren’s safe, effective, proprietary acetic compound is applied to the lesion(s). Additional information is available. The lesion’s nutrition is restricted because the compound constricts the capillaries within it. A scab forms in a few days & drops off in a few weeks, leaving esthetically-pleasing skin. The best results are achieved with growths on the face (any size!). Mild de-pigmentation may occasionally occur on the arms, legs, & torso, especially when melanin-containing or cancer-prone flat areas are treated. Any deeper layer of pigment that might remain (a rare occurrence) can be safely retreated, as no blood vessels are penetrated.
Dr. Tel-Oren and the doctors he has trained have used it successfully for 27 years worldwide on more than 100,000 patients.
- Please relax. The treatment is safe, effective, and essentially painless (even children and babies handle it well).
- Show your skin growths and blemishes to Dr. Tel-Oren. He will decide how many can be treated in one session and which ones should be treated first. Or, if he feels it’s in your best interest, he may refer you to a skin specialist.
- Specify your budget at the beginning of the visit. After inspecting your skin, Dr. Tel-Oren will tell you the cost of the treatment. You can then decide whether to proceed.
- If you proceed, Dr. Tel-Oren will gently apply his liquid on the growths or blemishes. Please hold still! You will feel a slight burning sensation—like a mosquito bite—lasting a few minutes.
First 12 hours: please keep the treated area dry (no shower)! In the first 2-3 hours, the treated area will shrink and change color, usually paler with a red halo (hyperemic reaction). The blood supply to the area is constricting, causing the malnourished cells to die. After 12 hours, you can shower/rinse the scab briefly as the scab must not absorb water until it falls off (no prolonged sink, bath, swimming pool immersion). To prevent or reduce scarring, makeup must be removed briefly with minimum water!
After 3-5 days: a hard scab will form on the treated area. Do not rub, scratch, or pick it (after showering, gently pat it dry). If you pull off the scab before it is ready, a new scab will form, but healing will be delayed (with minimal scarring). If it itches, apply a cold pack or ice in a plastic bag. Keep it dry!
After 12-15 days: the scab will fall off naturally, leaving smooth new skin (flat, pigmented, deeper lesions or pre-cancerous keratoses will take much longer to fall off and may scar a bit). Any redness or discoloration will improve over time.
The first typical lesion is $100-$150 (based on size and location); three average lesions are $250-$300; six average lesions are $375-$425; ten average lesions are $550-$600. Additional lesions are $25-$40 each. The greater the number removed, the lower the fee per lesion.
