Skin biopsy

Following a total body skin examination, our doctor will discuss with you. If any worrisome lesion(s) are found, they may be advised for a skin biopsy.

A skin biopsy is a procedure to remove cells or skin samples from your body for laboratory examination and look through under a microscope. It is used to diagnose skin conditions including skin cancers and remove abnormal tissue. Sometimes a biopsy may be done a week or two later if the skin condition is not considered severe or life threatening.

If the practitioner feels that an area might require a skin biopsy, it can be undertaken here at The London Cosmetic Clinic. This is where a small amount of skin is surgically removed, after a local anaesthetic has been applied. It does not hurt and may require a small dressing afterwards. The small piece of skin is then sent off to a lab for testing.
