skin lesions

Skin lesions are areas on the skin on any part of the body that displays abnormal growth or colouring in comparison to the surrounding skin. Lesions can be defined as:

  • Primary Skin Lesions are abnormal skin growths or discolored areas on the skin that may have been present from birth or have developed at a later date, such as birthmarks, blisters, pustules, rashes, weals and similar. Primary Skin Lesions tend to be entirely benign and harmless, although an individual may dislike the appearance of the lesion and may even suffer emotional distress as a result.
  • Secondary Skin Lesions are skin abnormalities caused by irritation or damage to a Primary Skin Lesion – this can be either accidental or intentional. These lesions usually feature crusts or scabs, ulcers, scars, scale and skin atrophy. There is a risk of serious infection if left untreated.

How can skin lesions be treated?
Skin lesions can be treated in different ways depending on the type of lesion, how large it is, if infection is present and other factors. Treatment may involve the application of topical creams, oral medications, laser and, in the most severe cases, surgery. Normally, a biopsy will be taken to rule out any potentially dangerous conditions or the presence of malignant cells prior to a bespoke treatment plan being created.

The first step is to make an appointment for a consultation with one of Cocoona’s experienced dermatologists, who will be able to advise in line with your individual case.

How much does it cost to treat or remove lesions?
The costs will vary depending on the form of treatment required, the size of the area or areas to be treated, the severity of the lesion and a number of other factors. For an accurate cost assessment, you will need to book an initial consultation with one of our experienced dermatologists.

    Dear Cocoona & Dr. Sanjay, Thank you so much for my Breast Augmentation procedure. Its 1 month on and I could not be happier with the result . All the way through from the initial consultation to the post op checkups, all your staff has been wonderful. The Dubai London Clinic for the surgery was fantastic. I would definitely recommend to others to Cocoona. Now if you could fix my handwriting skills please?
    Thanks again.

    Dear Lovely Staff of Cocoona, I love the environment of the Clinic, staff is so beautiful & positive always smiling. And Dr. Sanjay is the best, friendly, positive & smart. I am very happy with the procedure that I have done & I strongly recommend anyone who is reading these to please “go for it”. Mini and the other Nurses around are dolls, cute and positive. Love the All!
    Thank you & Best Regards

    I want to thank you for the great effort and expertise that you put in the hair transplant procedure which you did on me. You have fixed a big cut from a previous, very bad hair transplant in Jordan. It kept me very nervous and uncomfortable for very long time. Now, after conducting this surgery by you, I feel very very happy because the cut is almost gone. I like your personality and professionalism. I am really glad that I made a decision to come to Dubai and conduct the surgery at Cocoona Clinic Thank you very much.
