Moles, skin tags and warts are some of the most common undesirable skin growth conditions affecting people today. They are generally harmless, but can cause discomfort (snagging, bleeding), and if they occur near the face, can affect self-esteem.
Some people resort to home remedies to treat the condition; however, there are more advanced, effective and safe procedures for removing skin tags and facial warts. The trained professionals at KM Medical Aesthetix Clinic are experts at skin tag removal in Birmingham.
At our aesthetic clinic we offer skin tag removal and wart removal in Birmingham.
Skin Tag Removal
If you have a skin tag, you are not alone – we are all prone to developing them, particularly as we get older. These soft skin growths typically occur where the skin rubs together under the breast area, neck, armpits, and groin folds, but can also appear on the face, particularly around the eyelids.
They are harmless, non-cancerous lumps that can appear in groups or clusters. Flesh-toned or darker skin tags are usually around 4mm to 1cm. If left untreated, they can grow in size, it can even resolve by itself. Often looks unsightly.
By getting skin tag removal in Birmingham done by a skilled professional, it ensures that you’re not left with any traces and a lower risk of scarring.
Warts are raised bumps on the skin and differ from moles, in both appearance and texture. They are non-cancerous and are mostly caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV) family.
Warts are contagious, and if you have come in contact with HPV, it may take several months, or even years, before they appear on your skin. They range in size from 1mm to 1cm, and can be safely removed by a practitioner during wart removal in Birmingham.
Moles are a common skin blemish that often look like small brown dots, they can also be larger and be raised above the skin causing snagging and discomfort. Moles should always be kept an eye on for health reasons, but if you are unhappy with the appearance of a mole and it is causing irritation it may be a good idea to get it removed. We offer expert, near painless mole removal in Birmingham.
What treatments can remove skin tags, moles and warts?
First of all the skin experts here at our aesthetics clinic in Birmingham need to make sure the skin tag or wart is safe to remove. We will then offer you a treatment that will help you, whether it’s on your face or body.
While some of the skin tags and warts appear on the fingers, others grow near the fingernails and face. There are a number of remedies that have been used over time to treat these conditions including laser surgery, cantharidin and freezing.
We offer two treatments that are effective for removing warts and skin tags. A highly trained practitioner will assess your skin tags or warts and decide the best method to proceed.
- CO2 Laser
Our state of the art CO2 laser is multifunctional and provides an effective and fast method of mole and wart removal removals. Our doctors will assess the wart or skin tag removal and discuss with you the best way to go forward.
CO2 laser is also able to treat Milia, Moles and Xanthelasma. CO2 laser procedures are available now using revolutionary Acupulse Technology.
You can read more about this on the CO2 Laser treatment page.
- Plasma BT
Plasma surgical is ideal for skin tag removal and wart removal treatments. It is perfect for all skin types. With no anesthetic, skin-cutting or stitches required, there are no major risks. Most patients can return to work the same day.
The average skin tag removal treatment takes about 30 minutes, however, this may vary depending on the treatment. Immediately following the procedure, the skin begins to heal. The healing process is faster than more invasive options.
