Small lesions such as a moles, skin tags, cysts and warts are common and generally harmless, however for cosmetic reasons you may want them removed and Dr Leah Clinic are able to remove all of these type of lesions on face or on body!

Moles are a type of common skin growth. They are frequently small, dark-brown spots and are caused by pigmented cell clusters. Generally, they appear during childhood and adolescence. Most people have between 10 and 40 moles, some of which may change over time or disappear. The majority of moles are harmless and only very rarely becoming cancerous. Monitoring moles and other pigmented patches, particularly malignant melanoma, is an important proactive step in detecting skin cancer. A mole develops when cells within the skin (melanocytes) grow together in clusters or clumps. Melanocytes are present throughout the skin - they produce the natural pigment melanin that colours the skin.

Skin tags are painless, non-cancerous growths on the skin’s surface. A tiny, thin stem called a peduncle connects the tag to the skin. Skin tags are made up of blood vessels and collagen surrounded by an outside layer of skin. It is unclear what causes skin tags exactly. Since they usually appear in the folds of the skin, friction can play a part. Skin tags are common in both men and women, particularly over 50 years of age. They can appear anywhere in your body, although they are usually found where the skin folds, for example armpits, groin, neck, under the breasts.

A cyst is a fluid filled lump that can occur anywhere or on the body. Terms used to describe cysts include lumps include bumps, nodules. Cysts can be caused by injury or overuse but most commonly the cause is unknown. Ganglion cysts are common and can occur around wrist or hands, they are harmless, and don't cause pain or problems unless they grow and put pressure on other structures.

Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) on the skin.

Fact - Warts are one of the oldest documented skin conditions - being found on 3,000 year old mummies. Even Shakespeare mentioned the condition in his work!
