Skin Tag Removal
Small benign fibrous growths hanging from the skins surface
Skin Tags are usually found on the neck, underarm and groin areas but can also be found on the eyelids. Skin Tags are very common and harmless and are usually a few millimetres in size but may be as big as a few centimetres.
What causes skin tags?
Skin tags can affect both men and women. They most commonly occur where the skin folds or creases (most commonly on the neck, armpits, around the groin or under the breasts) and are more likely to affect people who are overweight for this reason. Skin tags can be hereditary, and people who have type 2 diabetes or are pregnant are also more prone to them while others may develop them for no apparent reason.
They are removed safely without harming the surrounding skin using an Advanced Cosmetic Procedure. A tiny probe applies heat to the tags causing them to shrivel and disappear.

Thread Veins are blood capillaries that have become permanently dilated or occasionally broken near the surface of the skin. Normally, these tiny veins and blood vessels in the skin are invisible. However once permanently dilated, the blood is trapped and shows through as a red thread vein.
Angiomas or cherry moles are benign bright red dome shaped structures. They lie just under the surface of the skin and are most common on the trunk or torso. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are even more common in men than women.
Seborrhoeic keratosis is a benign, asymptomatic mass, primarily caused by the ageing process. It is also known as seborrhoeic warts, senile warts, barnacles or basal cell papilloma. They have a thick wart-like surface and are usually colourless when they appear and become brown to black over time.
A central blood vessel becomes dilated and the smaller capillaries branching out from it radiate in different directions.
