Did you know that many of the annoying little skin anomalies that pop up over time on your face, hands and body can usually be very quickly and easily treated or removed, often in a single session?
One of the most satisfying parts of my job is taking care of age spots, skin tags, red veins and milia. In fact, I do all the lesion removal services in the clinic myself, that’s how much I love it!
We offer both cryotherapy (cold) lesion removal and electro desiccation (heat) methods of removal to ensure that you are getting the exact best treatment for your needs. A quick consultation determines the type and number of treatments that are the best fit for you. All of our treatments are non-invasive, meaning we work only in the upper layers of the epidermis. Both diathermy and cryotherapy are natural treatments using heat or cold energy that does not scar or damage surrounding healthy tissue.
Here are some of the blemishes that can be treated:
Red veins on the face – treated with diathermy. These tiny, visible veins respond very well to treatment and smaller ones will disappear in just one session. Larger or more extensive veins will need up to three sessions taken six weeks apart.
Skin tags: from the tiny ones on the neck to large individual tags anywhere on the body, these are very simple to treat, usually requiring just one session of either diathermy for the little ones or cryo for the bigger tags.
Milia: very successfully treated with diathermy, one session for small ones, follow up treatment needed for larger or more extensive milia issues.
Age spots/hyperpigmentation patches: vey simple and quick to treat with cryotherapy.
What cannot be treated?
We cannot treat anything that is deeper-rooted in the skin, beneath the epidermis such as moles, or flaky, recurring or weeping patches of skin. These need to be seen by a doctor.
