Shave Excision

The shave excision is a simple local anesthesia technique to remove skin lesions that rise above the skin surface.* A scalpel or blade is used to surgically “shave off” the elevated portion of the lesion which leaves a scrape in place of the lesion.* This scrape heals exactly the same a razor cut that occurs from too close of a shave.*

This procedure is commonly used for moles, warts, keratoses, scars, and other benign skin lesions.*
