Skin Biopsies in Los Angeles Answer Important Questions for Your Skin

You’ve noticed a skin lump that seems unusual, or there’s an area of your skin that’s become different than the skin around it (a skin lesion). It might be lifted, flat, or even depressed when compared to your normal skin—and you’re understandably concerned.

Get answers with a skin biopsy at Younique Surgery Center and Med Spa. We’ll painlessly remove a sample of that lesion—or if necessary, all of it—and send it to a medical laboratory. They’ll put it under a microscope and answer the big question: What’s going on?

Once you’re in the know, you can go forward for solutions!

Peace of Mind

Your skin biopsy helps you understand what’s happening instead of worrying about it.

The Skin Biopsy Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this relaxing and energizing one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, what your biopsy is for, and your medical history. If your provider determines that a skin biopsy in Los Angeles is the best solution for your concerns and goals, your session can be scheduled.



When patients come in for skin biopsies, the Younique provider first thoroughly cleanses and disinfects the treatment area. This can require the removal of makeup during the cleansing. Your provider will choose the most appropriate skin biopsy technique and then apply a local anesthetic to the target area, either as a topical cream or via injection. When the anesthetic has taken effect, your provider will remove the necessary amount of tissue for the lab to process. Depending on the biopsy technique, one or two simple stitches may be required to finish the treatment.



Your biopsy sample will be sent to a qualified medical lab for testing. The laboratory results may take a few days up or to 2 weeks to come back.

If you received a stitch to close the biopsy site, the self-dissolving stitch should start to dissolve and fall out within 1 to 2 weeks. We can also set up a follow-up visit to remove the stitch.

Once your lab results arrive, your Younique provider can provide treatment options, prescribe appropriate medication, or if the results point toward more serious medical issues, recommend you consult with your medical provider.
