What technology is used for Skin Tags, Milia and Xanthelasma Removal?
The technique we offer is a great alternative to surgical removal. Advanced Electrolysis works by sending a tiny current through the tip of an eyelash-sized probe onto the skin growth. Skin tags will disappear immediately. Sometimes, up to 30 small skin tags can be removed in one go!
Milia can be treated easily with this technology that gently coagulates them during the treatment. The hard keratinised centre is broken down and is absorbed by the body within a few days . This is a much gentler way to treat them, as opposed to removing them by opening the skin that can leave scarring. Xanthelasma is usually treated in one session but a second treatment may be necessary.
Treatment times and costs vary, but clients are often pleasantly surprised at how quick and affordable the process is.
These benign skin growths are small flesh-coloured or brown flesh that hangs off the skin and looks a bit like warts. They vary in size and are very common and harmless. Skin tags are usually found on the neck, in the armpits, around the groin, or under the breasts. These lesions can also grow on the eyelids or under the folds of the buttocks. The medical name for skin tags is acrochordons.
How many can be removed in one treatment?
Many skin tags can be removed in one session. Most importantly, the result is IMMEDIATE! To give you an idea of how many tags can be removed within 15 min, please look at the picture. It took 15 min to remove these 38 skin tags from the neck and décolleté area.
Slight swelling and redness will lasts for a few hours following the treatment. Little scabs will form at the treated spot and last for 3-5 days.
You may think milia are filled with puss. However, this is not the case. Milia spots are not a result of inflammation or clogged pores. In fact, they have nothing to do with your pores, but are actually caused by a buildup of keratin under the epidermis, or the top layer of skin. Keratin is a naturally occurring protein that helps build and rejuvenate skin, nails, and hair. However, when dead skin cells are not sloughed off properly, keratin can become trapped, causing small white cysts to form.
Why do I have milia?
Some people are genetically prone to developing milia spots but they are most often caused by the use of skin care products and cosmetics that contain heavy oils, particularly mineral oil or lanolin.
How is it treated?
There are two methods; manual (leaves scarring) and with electrolyses. We use advanced electrolyses for this treatment. The treatment is relatively painless, quick and with short downtime. Slight redness and swelling may last about a day. Full result usually develops in a week, when the body will dispose of broken keratin deposits following the treatment.
Cholesterol spots on eye lids - Xanthelasma
Xanthelasma is a condition caused by cholesterol deposits under the skin around the eyes. It presents itself as a yellow plaque, usually near the inner corner. Histologically, the formations are found to be accumulation of lipoprotein deposits. They can vary in size, slightly in colour and may be hard or soft. While not harmful, this condition is difficult to hide and may negatively affect a person's self-image and result in social discomfort. There is also no guarantee that the Xanthelasma won’t reoccur in the future.
How is it treated?
The xanthelasma spots are removed using the advanced electrolysis technique. The machine sends an electric current through an eyelash-sized probe onto the lesion and coagulates it. The patient will develop some scabbing over the treated area which will last for 5-7 days. When the scabbing falls off the new skin will take 4-6 week to mature.
