What is the treatment?
Punch excision is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to remove acne, moles, cysts and other types of facial scars. In this procedure, a small cutting tool is used to pierce the top layer of the skin, in which the target scar, cyst or pore is physically extracted from the skin.
Punch excision is normally done under local anesthesia to minimize or eliminate the pain of the process, as it will literally remove a small volume of skin containing the targeted scar, cyst or pore. After the excision, the doctor will either stitch up the resulting wound in the skin or fill it with a skin graft from another part of your body.
