Skin Tags


Excision of Skin Tags/Moles 

A skin tag is a vexing, often unattractive, fleshy protrusion from the surface of the skin. While they are innocuous, they may be a nuisance, especially in areas such as the underarms, where they are readily scratched while shaving. When they are mostly concentrated on visible regions such as the face, eyelids, neck, and crotch, clients often just want to be free of them. Larger skin tags (papillomas) may measure up to 5 mm in diameter, although the majority are only around 2-3 mm in diameter. If you are worried about any new or changing skin lesions, it is always a good idea to get them checked by one of our experienced aestheticians. These lesions may be eliminated via a number of methods, including cryotherapy freezing, electrocautery, and electrodessication.

Advice on a broad scale

  • Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight, particularly between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun’s rays are greatest.
  • Avoid becoming burnt by covering yourself on sunny days and applying sunscreen to any exposed skin.
  • Examine your moles frequently and get someone to examine any that you are unable to see.
What exactly are skin tags?

Skin tags are often an annoyance rather than a medical concern. They are most often seen on the neck, underarms, eyelids, and groyne. They are often inherited, but may also manifest during pregnancy as a result of hormones. They manifest as tiny pigmented protrusions or flesh flaps that dangle literally from the skin. They irritate when they catch on clothes or jewellery, or when hair is removed, and they may bleed. The most successful method for removing skin tags without leaving scars is via cosmetic cryotherapy freezing and electrodesiccation.

What exactly is a mole?

A mole is a collection of pigmented cells inside the skin. They are very frequent. Melanocytes, or Melanocytic Naevi, are these coloured cells. Most people are born with a few moles, and additional may develop over time. Moles come in a variety of sizes, from those that are barely visible to those that almost cover the whole body. This is referred to as Bathing Trunk Naevi.

What is the cause of moles?

Most moles develop because of a harmless proliferation of pigmented cells in the deeper layers of the skin. They often form spontaneously and are worsened by exposure to UV rays or sunshine, which is why they typically manifest on the trunk, arms, or legs. Although most moles emerge before the age of 20, they do persist into the 30s and 40s. By and large, the bulk of moles fade away with age. In later age, adults often acquire non-mole growths like as freckles, lentigines, “liver spots,” and seborrheic keratosis. After the age of 30, new moles may need careful monitoring, medical assessment, and, if necessary, biopsy. A newly formed mole in an adult may be the result of a developing aberrant mole or an early stage of melanoma. It is critical to have your dermatologist examine any new or changing mole.

Why are moles a cause for alarm?

Malignant Melanoma occurs when a mole changes and progresses to become Skin Cancer. If detected early, this potentially deadly type of skin cancer may be effectively treated via surgical excision. 

Who is in danger?

While the mere existence of moles is not cause for alarm, having more than 25 indicates a predisposition to Melanoma. Individuals with a high number of moles should exercise extreme caution when exposed to sunlight or sunbeds without protection. When a family history of malignant melanoma exists, the individual should be particularly aware of and attentive about changes in their moles. 

What are the signs and symptoms of cancer?
  •        Itchy and uncomfortable mole 
  •        Increase in size or a change in the uneven look, particularly around the margins   
  •        Color change, especially if the mole gets darker or speckled 
  •        Bleeding that occurs spontaneously 
  •        Beyond the initial mole, more moles develop/expand (satellite pigmented lesions) 
How is a cancer diagnosis made?

Any mole that seems odd should be investigated, but luckily, most changes in size, shape, and colour are just an increase in the number of pigmented cells, which is not malignant. To evaluate your risk, your doctor will likely want to hear about recent changes to the mole as well as your family history. Typically, when only minor changes occur, your doctor will take a clinical picture or measure it. He or she will ask you to monitor it and will evaluate the look during a subsequent visit.
