Skin Tag, Mole and Cyst Removal

Skin Tags

Skin tags, which can often be found on the face, neck, back or under the arms, can easily be removed in less than one hour, leaving virtually no trace of them.

Removal by Freezing

This method is commonly used for skin tags.  It involves liquid nitrogen being applied to the tag which is then frozen and so drops off.

Removal by Veinwave™

Veinwave is the name of a technique pioneered for treating fine thread veins, and equally effective for treating milia and skin tags.  Veinwave has been cleared with flying colours by the USA's Federal Drug Administration and is extremely safe. It works by treating the skin tag with a high frequency current which creates an inflammatory reaction. Firstly, a local anaesthetic cream is applied to numb the area.  The skin tag is then cauterized at the base, cutting off the blood supply and causing it to become darker in colour and drop off naturally. To book a consultation click here

Moles

In today's world where skin cancer is on the increase, moles need to be regularly checked for changes in their appearance.  We can advise you on how to treat any suspicious moles.  They can be treated in various ways, including removal, and we can arrange a full biopsy. Even moles that you are simply self-conscious about can be treated easily with minimal scarring afterwards.

Flat Mole Removal

If the mole is flat then the only method of removing it is to make a small incision, leaving behind a small scar which will heal naturally.  It may require one to three stitches which will be removed within one week after the treatment. The area will need to be protected from sunlight during the healing process.  In some cases, depending on the type of mole, a laser may be used but this can only be determined after a thorough consultation with a skin specialist.

Raised Mole Removal

If the mole is raised it can either be excised (cut) or shaved off.  If the mole is shaved there is always a small chance that it might grow back.  The shaving method leaves no scarring and many clients prefer to try this method first, especially if the mole is on the face.  Click here to book a consultation.

Cysts

A cyst is a collection of fluid in a sac, commonly found on the head, body or face.  A cyst can become quite large and unsightly.  A cyst must not be confused with cystic acne. 

Removal by Excision

A cyst will normally respond well to excision, leaving a slight scar which is usually more acceptable than the unsightly fluid lump which was removed.
