Skin tags, dark spots, and broken capillaries are a common part of aging. But especially when they are located on the face or neck, they can make us feel self-conscious. Our Houston skin tag removal service uses a specialized high-frequency device to remove surface-level blemishes and irregularities, without damaging the surrounding skin.
From minor spots to larger blemishes, this completely non-invasive treatment can restore your skin to its original condition, easily.
This treatment is suited for multiple conditions. If you're uncertain whether this treatment would be right for your skin, contact us for a consultation.
After completing our skin tag removal treatment, you can expect: The permanent removal of skin tags or irregularities — The renewal of healthy skin in the treated area — Smoother skin — Even skin tone
Our skin tag removal treatment is an alternative to laser treatments. We use a direct high frequency device that applies electrical energy to a pinpointed area of skin. We use a very small needle-like instrument that applies energy with great precision, but without ever breaking the skin. The treatment works by dehydrating the top layer of skin, a process called electrodessication. Depending on the skin irregularity being treated, you may be left with a small scab. When this heals, you’ll be left with smooth, new skin underneath. The treatment is fast, and most clients report it being tolerable..
Most of our clients report that skin tag removal doesn’t cause any pain or rate it very low on the pain scale. There is no burning, freezing, or cutting. So if you’ve tried other skin tag removal options in the past, you will probably find this to be more comfortable.
We recommend avoiding using any retinol or retinoid skincare products on the treatment area for one week ahead of your appointment. On the day of your appointment, please show up without makeup, lotions, or face creams.
Immediately after the treatment, your skin will likely look red and slightly inflamed. This will fade within a few hours. Most treated areas will develop a small scab. We ask you not to scratch or pick at this scab. It will fall off naturally within 1-3 weeks, leaving your skin healed underneath.
Yes, you can wear makeup two days after your skin tag removal appointment. If your skin does scab, we recommend that you avoid touching it. We also recommend that you moisturize and apply SPF regularly.
The skin tag removal treatment itself will dry out the skin tag. Don’t worry if immediately after, your skin tag is still attached. It will fall off within a few days.
We can do skin tag removal for most areas of the body but don’t recommend it for the feet or legs. We would be happy to recommend other treatment options through an individual consultation.
For most small skin tags and irregularities, we can permanently remove the lesion in just one short treatment. For larger areas or irregularities that have developed for a long time, we may require a second treatment. After an individual consultation, we can give you a suggested treatment plan.
Skin tag removal is an effective treatment for benign tumors and age spots, including skin tags. If you have a mole or lesion that you’re uncertain about, we encourage you to have it examined by a doctor to evaluate whether it might be malignant before booking an appointment with us.SKIN TAG REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS
