GROWTHS ON SKIN
For the most part growths on the skin are taken care of by a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon. Each time you have a facial with me, I will be examining your face under a magnifying glass to see every pore. Moles both of color and skin color, skin tags, and sebaceous cysts are more prevalent as we age. I am unable as an esthetician to remove any of these. If I see a growth that appears out of the ordinary, I will point it out to you with the recommendation that you see a physician. Over the years I have sent many people to see the doctor. Most of the time it is a simple matter of freezing the growth, sometimes the client returns to tell me that the doctor said it was nothing to worry about, but sometimes the doctor has diagnosed pre-cancerous, or cancerous growths and taken treatment steps.
