Skin Tag and Spot Removal
High Frequency Electro-Cautery Treatment
A safe non-invasive treatment that permanently removes unsightly skin growths from your face and body in just few sessions!
All treatments are performed using the strictest sanitary procedures. The treatment involves a cauterization machine that has been successfully used for over 30 years by skin care professionals to remove all types of common surface skin growths.
The procedure is generally more effective and less painful than liquid nitrogen or laser.
Common Vascular Imperfections include:
– Skin Tags
– Cherry Angiomas (Ruby Points, Red Dots) Milia (Milk Spots)
– Sebaceous Hyperplasia
– Flat Hyperpigmentation (Age & Sun Spots) Seborrheic
– Keratosis Cholesterol Deposits
At MPC, we’ve performed hundreds of skin tags with excellent results. The treatment involves cauterizing the base of the skin tag to close the blood supply to the growth. This procedure is well suited to treating small or large skin tags because it accelerates healing with minimal pain and damage to the skin. The scab just drops off in about a week, and you can carry on your day normally after treatment. Skin tags are completely removed with one treatment.
Cherry Angiomas (Ruby Points, Red Dots)
These little red dots are made up of a cluster of tiny capillaries at the surface of the skin and can range in color from bright red to purple. As they grow larger, they tend to expand in thickness, and may take on the raised and rounded shape of a dome and maybe located on any part of the body. Everyone seem to develop a few, but the number is genetically determines. They usually appear in early adulthood; but the onslaught in those genetically inclined tends to incera as one approaches their 40’s.
Cherry Angiomas are considered to be painless and harmless. Removal is easy by way of Cauterization.
Milia (Milk Spots)
Milia can be categorized as either primary or secondary. Primary milia are formed directly from entrapped keratin and are usually found on the faces of infants and adults. Secondary milia are also tiny cysts and look similar, but these develop after something clogs the ducts leading to the skin surface, such as after an injury, burn, or blistering of the skin.
Flat Hyperpigmentation (Age & Sun Spots)
Age or “liver” spots are a common form of hyperpigmentation. They occur due to sun damage. These small, darkened patches are usually found on the hands and face or other areas frequently exposed to the sun.
Plantar warts: This type of wart usually appears as flesh-colored or light brown lumps that are flecked with small clotted blood vessels that appear as tiny black dots. Plantar warts appear on the soles of the feet.
Flat warts: This type of wart is more common in teens and children than in adults. Flat warts are smoother, flatter, and smaller than other warts and they generally occur on the face. Flat warts also can appear on the legs, especially among females.
The typical mole is a brown spot. But moles come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes:
Unusual moles that may indicate melanoma.
This ABCDE guide can help you determine if a mole or a spot may be melanoma:
– A is for asymmetrical shape. One half is unlike the other half.
– B is for border. Look for moles with irregular, notched or scalloped borders.
– C is for color. Look for growths that have changed color, have many colors or have uneven color.
– D is for diameter. Look for new growth in amole larger than 1/4 inch (about 6 millimeters).
– E is for evolving. Watch for moles that change in size, shape, color or height, especially if part or all of a mole turns black.
Cancerous (malignant) moles vary greatly in appearance. Some may show all of the features listed above. Others may have only one or two.
When to see a doctor
See your doctor if you have a mole that:
– Is painful
– Itches or burns
– Oozes or bleeds
– Shows any of the ABCDE characteristics listed above
– Grows back after having been removed before
– Is new and you’re over 30 years old
If you’re concerned about any mole, see your doctor or ask for a referral to a doctor who specializes in skin conditions (dermatologist).
