Dermatofibroma

About Dermatofibroma

Dermatofibroma is a type of skin blemish that typically appears on the limbs, especially on the exposed parts.

They are hard bumps to feel, having either skin colour or slightly dark colour than skin tone and usually painless in nature.

Their size may vary from a few mm to 10mm. However, their cause is yet unknown but some dermatologists reckon some past injury, bee sting or thorn injury as the reason for their occurrence.

Can Dermatofibroma cause any harm?

These bumps are usually harmless in nature and the main reason behind their treatment or removal is aesthetic. There are different chemical substances available to treat these bumps at home that claim to give visible results. However, it’s been found that most of such substance treatments are either ineffective or have acidic content in them. Instead of hoping against hope or suffering from side effects like a chemical burn or scarring, it is advised to visit GP or dermatologist. Conventionally, they are removed by excision by an experienced surgeon under the effect of local anaesthesia, but it leaves a scar behind.

Dermatofibroma removal using CO2 laser

Another option is to consult a private clinic that offers CO2 Laser treatment for Dermatofibroma. With this technique, the hard bump is vaporised until it disappears from the skin. The treatment is performed under anaesthesia and is usually painless.
“If in doubt to identify a dermatofibroma, a biopsy may be required and in such case we may involve the help of our plastic surgeons but once it is diagnosed he prefers to remove dermatofibroma with the help of Carbon Dioxide Laser (CO2 Laser) which in turn gives a better cosmetically acceptable lesion.”, say Dr. Jha, Renew Skin and Health Clinic.

We, therefore, recommend you to seek the help of local clinics/ private hospitals and proceed from there. However, if you are struggling to find help locally, you may then contact Renew Skin and Health Clinic in Leamington Spa on 01926 422 454 to have a private consultation with our doctors. Please be aware as we are a private clinic there will be consultation fees of £100 and this has to be paid upfront before you get booked in. The consultation cost may subject to change without prior notification. As far as the cost of treatment is concerned, it depends on the severity of the conditions.

Dr Jha was so welcoming, calming and professional. He walked me through the procedure, his extensive knowledge and experience and put me at ease about a procedure I’d been wanting to get for years. He checked in with me EVERY DAY during the healing process and offered constant support and insight. I would recommend Renew to anyone looking for the treatments they offer! A+

I have received an excellent service and treatment at the renew skin and health clinic in Leamington Spa. I had a small ugly lump on my lower lip which was diagnosed at the Clinic by Dr. Jha as a venous lake. This was treated with a special laser and within a few weeks the lump has disappeared and my lip has healed. I can highly recommend this service and treatment for complete removal of a venous lake. All the staff are very professional, full explanations on treatment and excellent follow up have been received. Thankyou Jane

Im so pleased with the results but also the aftercare is amazing and the Dr is always available to answer any questions at any time and replies almost straight away. I cannot recommend this clinic enough. Thankyou for giving me so much confidence after the treatment. Thanks again

I’m currently undergoing a series of laser hair removal treatments at Skin Renew in Leamington, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. The care and professionalism exhibited by the team are exceptional. Dr. Pravalika, in particular, ensures that I am comfortable throughout each procedure, providing a reassuring presence and meticulous attention to detail. I highly recommend Skin Renew for anyone considering laser hair removal.

Been going for laser hair removal for a few months now! Been through a variety of different treatments and clinics – this has been the best experience so far!! Painless and effective laser hair removal! Dr Pravalika is super attentive and knowledgeable – makes sure I know what she’s doing and what settings are used!! She checks in multiple times throughout treatment – absolutely brilliant!

Went to get a skin growth removed by laser. Very good consultation, treatment, and attention to post-op care. They proactively got in touch after the treatment to make sure I updated them about how I was doing. Brilliant. Very happy with the result, and would go again. Also, polite and friendly. They know what they’re talking about, I’d recommend.
