Laser removal of skin tags / appendages
About Laser removal of skin tags / appendages
Skin tags / appendages (fibroids) are benign tumors hanging from a narrow shaft that look like soft, small balloons of hanging skin. They most frequently occur on the eyelids, at the beginning of the neck, in the groin, under the breasts and in the areas where the skin rubs against skin. They are not contagious, so if one is removed, therefore it not more appear thereof. Some people simply tend to develop them. Genetics, hormone boosts (for example during pregnancy) and obesity are known factors, and athletes sometimes develop them in the areas where the skin is repeatedly irritated by impacts. Sometimes, babies develop them in skin folds. These ulcers can be pretty annoying and generally do not look nice. Sometimes, they can get caught in jewelry or zippers. They can be irritated by friction of the clothing and can cause pain, especially during sports activities.
Removing them with a laser is the most ideal method because it is quick and easy, and painless than any other method. The Er: Yag laser which we use in the MEDICAL INN clinic, is exceptionally precise and can be used to target only a tiny segment of the skin, without affecting the surrounding area. The procedure is so performed that there is no – or only very minimal bleeding and there is no pain. The natural antiseptic properties of laser light reduce the risk of secondary infection and strong scarring and ensure a quick healing. Therefore, the laser is the absolute preferred method to remove skin tags / appendages.
