CRYOTHERAPY REMOVES SKIN TAGS

Even the most attractive complexion can be marred by tiny warts and bumps and lesions on the skin. Flesh that was smooth and soft starts to feel rough and bumpy.

  • Skin Tags On The Neck,
  • Warts On The Hands and Arms,
  • Tiny Bumps Around The Eyes,
  • Rough Patches– they are annoying, unsightly, and uncomfortable.

Until recently, there was no easy way to remove moles, warts, and skin tags. Now there’s a new therapy that is transforming skin therapy.

Cryotherapy in Miami, FL

Cryotherapy– applying extreme cold to certain areas of the skin– has made it easy to remove unwanted tissue from anywhere on the body, including the tender area around the eyes and the thin skin of the neck.

THE TREATMENT IS SIMPLE AND PAINLESS.

The clinician applies a laser-like stream of nitrous oxide, using a device called a Cryoprobe. This ‘freezes’ the unwanted tissue without affecting the healthy skin around it.

IT’S CALLED CRYOTHERAPY AND IT’S PERFORMED RIGHT IN OUR MIAMI CLINIC.

Cryotherapy is quick and requires no follow-up. The unwanted tissue is gone forever; no repeat treatment is necessary.

PINPOINT PRECISION

The Cryoprobe’s accuracy and precision mean that lesions as tiny as 1mm (about as thick as the wire in a paperclip) on up to 10mm can be targeted with no damage to surrounding tissue. Cryotherapy is designed to treat the following nuisances:

  • Remove Skin Tags
  • Remove Warts
  • Remove Moles
  • Treat keratoses (rough, bumpy patches anywhere on the body)

The treatment takes just a few minutes and is performed without anesthesia. Within days, the patient sees a return to youthful, smooth skin– the hallmark of ageless beauty. If you’re tired of annoying skin tags on the neck, tiny bumps around the eyes, or unsightly moles, contact our Miami clinic for a consultation. It’s fast and simple.

Make your skin feel smooth and young again.

Removal and excision of Moles, Warts & Skin Tags

Skin growths are uncomfortable, and painful and cause itching. There are different kinds of skin growths which include moles, warts, skin tags, and more. Early treatments help to prevent infections.

What are Moles?

Moles are a common type of skin growth that often appears as small, dark brown spots. They are caused by clusters of pigmented cells. Moles commonly appear on the skin during childhood and adolescence.  

Treatments for Moles Miami, FL

Moles can change in number and appearance. Changes in hormonal levels such as during pregnancy, adolescence, and aging may also lead to changes in moles’ response to the skin. Moles usually grow in numbers during teen years, they get darker during pregnancy and fade away as individuals get older.

Most moles are harmless and require no treatment. They usually fade off on their own.

Moles can be removed surgically if:

  • The mole is a suspected melanoma (a serious type of skin cancer)
  • The mole is bothersome or makes you feel uncomfortable.

A mole may be removed surgically by:

Shave excision

During this procedure, the area around the mole is numbed and a small blade is used to cut around and under the mole. It doesn’t require sutures or stitches. This is commonly used for smaller moles.

Excisional surgery (excision biopsy)

During this procedure, a scalpel or punch device is used to cut out the mole plus a surrounding margin of healthy skin.

If a melanoma is detected in its early stages, when the mole is thin and hasn’t grown downwards from the skin surface or spread to other parts of the body, it is removed using a simple surgical technique.

If a melanoma is detected in its later stages, it will be removed using the safety margin. Your doctor will numb the area around the mole and cut it out along with some margin of healthy skin around it if necessary.

Occasionally, mole removal creams may be used to remove moles at their early stages. However, you should seek medical or cosmetic specialist advice before use.

What is Warts?

Warts are small, fleshy, and painless bumps on the skin or mucous membrane. Warts are caused by human papillomavirus.

Different strains of human papillomavirus may cause warts in different parts of the body. Warts can be spread from one part of the body to other parts. It is contagious and can be spread from one person to another person by body contact.

Treatment of warts

Warts usually go away on their own. However, they are uncomfortable and ugly, hence you might want to get them treated on time.

Warts can be treated or removed using:

Home treatments include;

Freezing treatments

These are over-the-counter treatments. A concentrated cold air (a mixture of dimethyl ether and propane) is sprayed onto the wart. This mixture kills the skin and allows you to scrape off the surface of the wart.

If you want to remove a wart quickly, these freezing treatments are a good choice but they aren’t strong enough to remove all the warts.

Salicylic acid treatments

You can apply salicylic acid products every day, often for a few weeks. It is recommended that you soak the wart in water for about 15 minutes before you apply the product for best results.

Dute tape approach

This process involves covering the wart with a small piece of duct tape for several days. Thereafter, soak the wart and rub the wart to remove the dead skin. It could take several rounds of treatments for this approach to work.

If home treatments do not remove your warts, you need to seek medical help. If you have diabetes, do not try to treat your warts by yourself. Seek medical care.

Medical treatments include:

Liquid nitrogen

This procedure involves freezing up your wart with liquid nitrogen. When the wart freezes, it causes a blister to form under and around the wart which then pulls the wart away from your skin within a week. This procedure is usually very effective, though can be a bit painful.

Surgery

If the wart doesn’t respond to other treatments, surgery may be required to remove it. During a surgical procedure, the wart will be cut off with a surgical knife or can be burnt with electricity. Your doctor will first administer a shot of anesthetic before the procedure to reduce pain.

What are Skin Tags

Skin tags are painless, noncancerous growths that appear on the skin. These tags hang off the skin by a small, thin stalk known as the peduncle.

Men and women over the age of 50 are most affected. Skin tags can appear anywhere on your body. However, they’re commonly found in areas where your skin folds such as the armpits, groin, thighs, eyelids, neck, and area under your breasts.

Skin Tags treatments

Skin tags don’t usually require treatments. They may go off on their own. If you feel pain or uncomfortable due to skin tags, you may seek for the treatment to get them removed.

You can treat or remove skin tags with:

Natural remedies

You may be able to remove skin tags by using apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and lemon juice.

It is not recommended to remove skin tags by yourself. This is because it can cause burns, bleeding, or infections. Seek medical attention for the treatment of skin tags.

Medical treatment options for removing skin tags include:

Cryotherapy

This involves freezing up the skin tag with liquid nitrogen.

Surgical removal

This involves removing the skin tag with scissors or a scalpel.

Electro-surgery

This involves burning off the skin tag with high-frequency electrical energy.

Ligation

This involves removing the skin tag by tying it off with surgical thread in order to cut off its blood flow.
