Skin Bumps

Many people suffer from lumps or bumps on the surface of their skin or inside the skin layers. These skin abnormalities may be classified into keratosis, cysts, fibromas, lipomas, milia, skin tags, skin warts or skin moles. Most of them can be treated and removed by one of our experts for both health and aesthetic reasons.

Because of their specific nature, skin lumps, such as breast lumps, melanoma and hernias, need to be diagnosed by a specialist who will determine how to proceed with treating them in the most effective way possible

Simple checklist that you can follow to determine whether your skin lump or bump needs medical attention:

* Does it hurt or cause pain when touched?
* Has it changed in shape, size or colour?
* Is it a new lump or collection of skin lumps?

Treatment Options for Skin Bumps

  • Keratosis Pilaris: Very common skin condition. It is caused when the skin forms hard plugs around the base of the follicles. Though a patient wants to pick or scrub away the hard bumps, the best method for removing them is to moisturize the skin with specially recommended lotions. Solution: Try Fixzit, a blemish drying serum that combines Vitamin A & Salicylic Acid to exfoliate skin and decongest pores, giving your complexion a fresh, new start whilst also leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft.
  • Cysts: These are pockets of tissue that can literally form anywhere on the skin, but which are harmless. An ingrown hair, an old pimple, an infection, and anything that clogs a gland can lead to a cyst. These can be left alone, but can also be easily removed. Solution: Micro-Thermocoagulation has been proven to reduce the size of a cyst non-invasively and with little pain or downtime. You may also see a specialist to have the cyst surgically removed.
  • Dermatofibromas: These are harmless but unsightly raised bumps. They can range from red and brown to purple. They can be itchy and may change colour. They need no treatment. Solution: Successful removal of Dermatofibromas is done surgically - see a specialist.
  • Folliculitis: Hair follicles can become inflamed and create very noticeable red bumps on the skin. They may even become infected or irritated by chemicals such as soaps. They are treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications, and should not be rubbed or shaved. Solution: Try Epidermal Growth Factor, developed using the purest form of EGF: triple filtered to activate the skin's natural regeneration mechanism designed to heal, sooth, and care for irritated skin.
  • Lipomas: A subcutaneous tissue containing a harmless tumor, but which can be painful if growing out of control and pressing on nerves. They can be removed through suction, squeezing, or surgery. Solution: Consult your doctor for treatment options.
  • Milia: The best way to treat the breakout of Milia on the face is to have a regular skin exfoliation regime. There are many natural exfoliators and various skin care products that will help you exfoliate your facial skin. Solution: Have an in-clinic Medi Peel with Milia extraction to deeply exfoliate the skin and remove Milia. You can our own milia removal Clinical Skin care procedure. At home add Retinol 3tr to your skincare regime for a controlled exfoliation of dead skin cells, therefore preventing new Milia breakouts from occurring.
