Non-pigmented lesions are lesions that contain very little coloring or pigment. Usually they are called lumps and bumps and can be categorized into warts, skin tags, keratosis, keloid, stretch marks, etc. In order to rule out any precancerous or cancerous conditions, it is important to get these conditions carefully assessed by a physician to rule out any precancerous or cancerous conditions.
After trauma occurs to the skin, healthy skin can be replaced by fibrous tissue and appear as a scar on the skin. Scarring can be the result of a variety of factors which include wounds, burns, acne, and surgery. They are a natural part of the healing process and the way in which your body responds to injury and trauma is dependent on a range of factors such as your skin colour, genetics, age, and location on the body.
Scars can appear anywhere on your body and can be flat, raised, depressed or jagged. It may be fresh or old. Scar reduction can be achieved surgically and non-surgically. During your initial consultation, Dr. Padma Jain will assess each patient for his/her scar and work with you to determine your goals and desired results. Then, she will provide you with recommendations on the most effective procedure or combination of procedures to achieve your desired results. Because each scar is different and varies from patient to patient, the treatments that are recommended will be unique and specific to your skin condition.
A wart is generally a small, rough tumor, typically found on the hands, feet, face, near the eyelids and lips, on the soles of the feet and genital area. Warts are common, and are caused by a viral infection within the human papilloma virus (HPV) family.There are a variety of different warts that one can experience. This includes the common wart, flat wart, plantar wart and mosaic wart. They typically disappear after a few months but can last for years and can recur. A few papilloma viruses are known to cause cancer . Certain types of warts, depending on location and cause, can be contagious from region to region, but are not transferable between species.
Keloids are a dense mass of skin that rises quickly during the skin’s healing process and can progressively get larger over time. Unlike other scars, keloids do not regress or flatten over time. They usually have a smooth top and a pink or purple colour and tend to occur on the back, shoulders, ears, and chest. This skin may be thicker than the area around it and may itch or be tender to the touch.
Keloids usually develop as a result of abnormal scar formation after trauma occurs to the skin. After the trauma, the skin heals itself through the production of collagen and keloids form when excess collagen is formed. Those with darker skin types are more likely to develop keloids and they are equally common in both men and women.
Some keloids can grow quite large and unsightly. Aside from causing cosmetic or aesthetic problems, this type of scarring tend to be tender, itchy, and can even be painful to the touch.
