What Are Skin Lesions?
While most skin lesions, like warts and moles, are harmless, they can be removed at Van Dyke Yun Dermatology for aesthetic reasons or to avoid potential health problems, like skin irritations or cancer. Moles, warts, skin tags, and keratosis are all among a wide variety of different types of lesions and/or skin growths. Sometimes they are on top of the skin causing a bump, or sometimes they are under the skin and cause a dark patch. Either way, there are several methods for removing these skin lesions. During an initial consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists, we can determine the best approach to removing your skin lesion. Call our Studio City, CA office today for more information.
How are Warts, Moles, and Growths Removed?
Lesion removal at Van Dyke Yun Dermatology is ideal for Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley, CA men and women who have moles, warts, and other growths. This procedure is commonly provided by board-certified dermatologists Dr. Greg Van Dyke and Dr. Jasmine Yun for both cosmetic and medical reasons. We will typically remove lesions at our Studio City, CA office while you are under local anesthesia in one of our private procedure rooms. Some lesions can be removed by simply shaving them off while others require laser treatment or excision. These procedures are usually pretty quick, get you right home afterward, and cause minimal scarring. You might feel a little tender after your treatment, but this will fade in a few days and can be helped with the use of over-the-counter pain meds. In the case you have stitches, we will give you at-home care instructions. You can expect your skin to scab over and heal within about 2 – 3 weeks with proper care.
"Today I was reminded why I've been seeing Dr Yun for 3 years. Work had put me in a time crunch, and not only did Dr Yun come up with a thoughtful plan for my botox request, she brought back up medications she thought would be good for my acne and excoriation, checked in about the mental health concerns that had been exacerbating the latter, and gave suggestions prepping for my upcoming wedding all in TWELVE. MINUTES. I have never waited long, unlike in other popular dermatologist offices, and Dr. Yun never forgets about her comprehensive role of doctor beyond just cosmetic procedures."- K.S. / Google / Sep 15, 2023
"Dr Jasmine Yun listens to every single detail/ concern, without showing judgement. She addresses all of it. I could not be more satisfied. I travel from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Los Angeles twice a year, and I see her every visit. She really is amazing, down to earth and incredibly kind. I had a dermatologist in my area, but he retired. I spent lots of money and time, trying to find somebody to give me the results I was looking for with my Botox, filler, and specifically the asymmetry I saw with my face. Dr. Jasmine was referred to me by a friend who travels from Pittsburgh to appear in commercials, sitcoms and music videos,. I know she treats celebrities, but I never feel like I am any less important than any of her patients. Not to mention., She is also a pathologist, and pays special attention to everything on my skin that may not ook right. Just an added bonus, on top of a meeting my cosmetic needs. Just love her and her staff."- T.W. / Google / Sep 11, 2023

"A wonderful experience from the online booking to a welcoming front and back office, to a clear and comprehensible visit with the doctor.
