At 111 Harley St., we advocate prevention before treatment. The first step in Skin Tag removal is assessing and analysing your skin tag to ensure it’s not dangerous. We perform the removal in our safe, clean and sterile clinic facilities.
If your skin tag is causing you irritation or concern, or you don’t like the appearance of it, then it’s possible to have a skin tag removed.
The surgical approach to removing the mole will depend on their depth and size. It’s a very straightforward and efficient process.
Mole removal doesn’t require general anaesthesia, and we can operate within our safe, clean and sterile clinical facilities.
We will numb the area with a topical anaesthetic. The procedure itself shouldn’t be painful as we inject Lidocaine before the operation. After this, the surgeon will cut and remove the mole or cyst. Depending on the size of the mole or cyst, you may require a couple of stitches.
When we send the mole for examination, you should have the results within two weeks. The incision itself can take two to three weeks to heal.
There is minimal downtime after mole removal. Patients can return to their regular activities within a week and return to work within a week.
Mole removal or cyst removal usually takes around 30 minutes.
Nano Plasma is an effective treatment at reducing and removing the skin tags, using heat technology which generates plasma energy, it directly targets the skin and vaporises the area. Usually only needing one treatment, you will develop a brown carbon crust over the area until it falls away in 5-7 days.
During your consultation, one of our certified Nurse Practitioners will assess your suitability for treatment and discuss your treatment goals and conditions.
Topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area beforehand to reduce the risk of any discomfort during the treatment. As the treatment involves sublimation to shorten and tighten the fibres, there may be a slight burning smell but this is completely normal. You may require more than one treatment but you will be advised during the consultation stage.
The treatment requires no cutting or stitching of the area and is possible through the ionisation of plasma, instantly contracting and tightening the skin’s fibres.
It uses heat energy to sublimate the skin, altering its physical state. Afterward a visible crust forms over the treated area before flaking off after a few days and leaving the area tighter, rejuvenated and lifted.
The carbon crust that is formed shouldn’t be touched for 5-7 days afterward except being lightly camouflaged with mineral foundation or concealer.
Results can be seen immediately after the treatment as the treated area will appear lifted, tightened and reduced. The areas will continue to improve for up to 3 months with the final results taking shape following 1 month after your last session.
Immediately after the treatment a carbon crust will form over the treated area, this is
completely normal. The crusts formed must not be scratched, rubbed or removed. Mild swelling and discomfort for the first 48 hours.
A standard treatment lasts between 20-30 minutes.
