LESION & BLEMISH REMOVAL EDINBURGH
Skin tags, Milia, Warts, Verrucae, Cherry Angiomas, Moles, Pigmentation and Age Spots are common skin conditions. Whilst they are usually not harmful, Skin Tags can catch on clothing or jewellery they can greatly affect a person’s confidence. Many of our clients choose to have them removed, which is a painless process.
At Skin n Tonic Aesthetics we are able to effectively remove Skin Lesions using either Cryopen, Soft surgery or Laser Therapy. The form of treatment that will be used will be discussed in your initial consultation:
SKIN TAG REMOVAL
Skin Tags are a very common and harmless skin condition, they are small flesh or brown coloured growths that resemble warts. They vary in size and can range from a few millimetres to up to 5cm. Skin tags are flesh-coloured or brown growths, they hang from the surface of the skin and are usually found in the armpits, on the neck, around the groin, under the breasts or on the eyelids. Skin Tags tend to develop where skin rub against skin or clothing. They are therefore more common in overweight people as they commonly occur where the skin creases or folds. They can also be hereditary, pregnant women may be more likely to develop due to hormonal changes and people who suffer from diabetes are also more prone to them. Results vary dependent on the client, whilst some clients will have a Skin tag removed in one session others may require multiple treatments.
Moles are brown or black in colour and they tend to develop as a result of sun exposure though they can appear spontaneously anywhere on the body. It is important to monitor Moles for any irregular changes, it is important to visit your GP to check moles as changes to a mole may be an indication of skin cancer called Melanoma. We may request a GP note prior to any treatment being carried out.
Before & After
CHERRY ANGIOMA REMOVAL
Cherry Angiomas are more regularly referred to as Blood Spots and are small red spots that are usually circular or ovular in shape. They can appear on the body spontaneously and the reason behind their appearance is unknown. Whilst blood spots are harmless if they change colour, shape, itch or bleed then it is recommended to schedule an appointment with your GP. We mostly treat in the clinic with the Cryopen.
Warts are highly contagious skin growths that vary in both size and appearance whilst Warts are benign (non-cancerous) they can occasionally itch or bleed and lead a person to feel self-conscious of certain areas of their body. Results are usually dependent on the size of the Wart, whilst most Warts can be removed after one session, some may need several sessions to ensure it is removed completely.
Warts vary in appearance but can have the following characteristics:
- Round or Oval Shaped.
- Be firm and raised.
- Have a rough irregular surface similar to a cauliflower.
- Often develop on the knuckles, fingers and knees.
- Vary in size, from less than 1mm to more than 10mm (1cm) in diameter
Does the treatment hurt?
Some clients experience mild discomfort during treatment, those with sensitive skin may benefit from the use of an anaesthetic cream to numb the area and limit discomfort. The procedure is quick and straightforward and usually takes between 15-60 minutes depending on the number of lesions being removed.
What happens after treatment?
After treatment clients are able to resume their day to day activities immediately and the treated area with be covered with a plaster.
