Dr. Parvin Shafa | August 16, 2021
Our patient, Michelle, was living with these discolored, hanging skin lesions on her neck for at least the last few years. Finally, she came for a complimentary consultation with Dr. Shafa, who informed her that this skin growth, known as an acrochordon, was extremely common and could be removed immediately.
There are over 3 million cases of acrochordons reported in the U.S. every year. They are most commonly located on the underarm, upper chest, eyelid, and neck (just like Michelle’s). These areas are the parts of our bodies that are most frequently irritated by our clothing rubbing against them.
Some patients can actually develop one or more skin growths in one area. Whether you develop these skin growths and how many you have is usually based on a combination of age, genetics, weight, and hormones. Dr. Shafa can help you to understand which of these factors may be contributing to your skin lesion growth and start additional treatment if necessary.
For Michelle, all of her skin lesions were removed by Dr. Shafa in a matter of minutes, with absolutely no pain or discomfort during her first visit to our office. Some other patients may only have a single skin lesion on their body, which can be treated in exactly the same way – like our patient above, who had her singular skin growth removed from her underarm by Dr. Shafa.
The great news is that once your skin lesions are removed with Dr. Shafa’s expertise, they will never regrow! The results are permanent and resolve your irritation.
Don’t sit around and wait for the smooth skin of your dreams, make it a reality!
