Part of the skin derivatives are congenital and part of them appear with age. The most commonly occurring skin derivatives are birthmarks, which do not cause a big trouble, because they are usually benign, but even benign birthmarks can become malignant, especially if they are often traumatised or exposed at the sun. Therefore, if you notice the newly emerging or changing (growing, changing colour, swelling, bleeding, etc.) skin derivative, consult your doctor immediately. Removal of benign skin derivatives is performed not only for aesthetic purposes, but also for the prevention of skin oncological diseases.
Skin derivatives can be treated with laser, localised frost, special light and other methods, but the most effective and safest way is surgical. The removed tissue can always be investigated histologically and accurately determine its nature, malignancy and radicalism of surgery.
After the procedure, patients can go home almost immediately. It is recommended not to wet the wounds for three days. For several weeks, active motions that could drain the scar should be avoided.
