– A lesion is just a general term. So a skin lesion is any abnormality on the skin. Ideally, the skin is meant to be flat and smooth. So skin lesions are things like moles, skin tags, hemangiomas, birth marks, seborrheic keratosis, solar keratosis, xanthomas, which are the little kind of fatty deposits often seen up here, around the eyes. And it kind of goes on and on. So there’s several many different classes of skin lesions. And so the treatment that I offer, which I learned from Doctor Teleren, he developed his applying a specific compound. It’s an acidic compound, it’s so simple. We just apply it topically. It’s very precise, using a toothpick, and what it does is, upon contact with the lesion, the solution constricts it. Constricting the lesion is cutting off its nutrient supply, so it’s isolating the lesion, it cuts it off from the rest of the skin, and then what will happen is that the lesion then scabs up and is able to just fall off. So this is a way that we’re able to really, really precisely treat any of these lesions, and it’s amazing the array of different things that can be treated. It’s also very safe to treat. Because it’s so precise, and because it constricts and isolates, it’s not spreading. We can treat very sensitive areas. We can treat mucus membranes. We can treat inside the mouth, lips. We can treat on the inside of the eyelid. We can treat on top of the eyelid. These are places where it’s actually quite common for getting different types of lesions. Skin tags can often form. Sometimes basal cell carcinoma, different cancerous lesions can form up here. Well if you’re going to a traditional doctor, and the tools that they use to remove those lesions are freezing them, cutting them. Often times if it’s in a sensitive area, they’re not gonna touch it. Cause that’s not an area where you can perform surgery. You can’t cut on the eyelid, cause there’d be nothing left to stitch up. So this really gives us the ability to treat lesions that aren’t accessible by other means.

– Interesting. Now are there any possibilities for scarring or anything like that?

– There’s always a possibility for scarring, although over treating tens of thousands of patients with this, we find that it’s minimally scarring and often no scars whatsoever. Now we get the best results on the face and the scalp of course, because that’s where there’s the most circulation, on the skin. Often times I’ll treat patients, remove sometimes very large moles somewhere on the face, or other types of lesions. They’ll come back for a followup in three or four months, and we can’t find where it was. So I’m asking, “Let’s check in and see how it’s doing!” Well they’re like, “I don’t know, I think it “was somewhere here on the cheek.” It really is phenomenal sometimes. It’s not always that way. Sometimes it requires multiple treatments, which breaks into one of the real benefits of this, is that we can really see what we’re doing. So after we remove a layer of… Tissue, we can see what’s left. So there’s a tendency the skin always grows from this basal layer up, and it takes about a month for a cell to complete that whole journey. The basal layer of the epidermis to go all the way up and then slough off. Legions often times will penetrate deeper, so once we remove the outer layer, if there’s roots, we can see them. Once the scab falls off, we can see if there’s anything left and we can retreat that. Now if you’re using surgery to remove it, you’re just guessing. You’re just guessing on depth, and that’s why you’ll often see people who go in, they have a small lesion to go in to have it surgically removed, and then they come out and they have a huge scar! Because the doctor’s just guessing, and if it is cancerous, potentially perhaps they’ve identified that with biopsy or they can tell with individual signs, then they wanna make sure that they get it off. They have one shot at it, so they’re gonna really take a lot of tissue. This allows us to be very precise in the application. If we need to treat it again, no problem. It creates minimal inflammation, cause we’re constricting it and as you know, inflammation is fuel for cancer. So cutting it into a place that’s potentially cancerous is like pouring gasoline on fire. You never want to create more inflammation in the treatment of cancer, anywhere in the body, trying to really –

– Reign it in?
