HOW ARE MOLES REMOVED?
Moles are generally removed surgically, using either a shave or elliptical excision techniques. Cosmetic removal of moles is usually best reserved for raised lesions. Surgical removal leaves scars, but in many cases these are less noticeable than the original mole. This procedure is safe, although rarely complications such as infection or unusual scarring can occur. Mole removal can be done on your lunch hour with Tara at Delle Chiaie Cosmetic Medicine in Hampton, NH.
HOW ARE SKIN TAGS REMOVED?
Skin tags are harmless; however, it left attached to the skin, skin tags will not disappear. Skin tags are usually removed with either liquid nitrogen or electrodessication. Both of these treatment modalities yield excellent results.
Possible forms of skin tag removal include:
- Surgery: This is a simple removal of the skin tag with surgical scissors or a scalpel.
- Cryotherapy: This treatment is common for warts but works similarly with skin tags. In this method, the skin tag is frozen with liquid nitrogen, and it falls off.
- Electrosurgery: An opposite of cryotherapy, this method involves burning the skin tag off with high-frequency electricity.
- Ligation: This removal method involves tying off the skin tag with surgical thread to restrict its blood flow.
