Benign skin changes can occur in many forms. These include hyperpigmentation or tissue growths, as well as scars and dilated vessels, couperose or port-wine stains.
Treating benign skin changes at the Hautmedizin Bad Soden
Benign skin changes do not generally have to be treated. Even tumours can be left in the tissue if a qualified dermatologist has classified them as benign.
The most common reason for treatment is that the patient is unhappy with the skin change or it particularly bothers the patient. In some cases, we still recommend removal, for example if the tumour becomes inflamed or causes pain due to repeated mechanical friction.
What can we do?
We offer a wide range of options for removing skin changes – from a treatment with medication and laser treatment to surgery.
Depending on the diagnosis, we develop a customised treatment concept for our patients while taking their wishes into account. An initial consultation is therefore essential at our clinic. In addition to the diagnosis and discussing the suitable method, we also provide information about aftercare, possible risks and complications as well as the end result of the treatment. You can also ask all of the important questions that you may have.
If you would like to make an appointment, please give us a call or send us an e-mail. Alternatively, you can make an appointment using our online calendar where you can select the date and time you would like.
Will your health insurance cover the costs of removing benign skin changes?
Costs are usually only covered if the treatment is performed to maintain or restore health. If it is not necessary to remove the skin change, patients with statutory health insurance are to pay the treatment costs themselves.
