Permanent removal of skin growths
Skin growths are accumulations of various types of cells that look different from the normal surrounding skin. They may be raised or flat and range in color from dark or black to flesh-colored or red.
They may be present at birth or develop later as we age. In most cases, skin growths are non-cancerous and can be safely removed. The treatment is performed by a professional, certified technician an experienced licensed esthetician who has been trained to identify the different types of skin growths appropriate for treatment. All treatments should be performed using the strictest sanitary procedures.
Our equipment is a cauterization machine that has been successfully used for over 30 years by skin care professionals to remove all types of common surface skin growths. The machine uses a high-frequency electrical current that delivers a precise spark through a micro-needle to cauterize and desiccate skin growths.
During the procedure the micro-needle remains above the skin surface; it does not penetrate the skin. As the growth is removed, a natural protective coating or scab develops that covers the treated area.
Within the next few days, the scab will fall off and be replaced by healthy new skin cells, the color of the surrounding skin tissue. In most cases, there is no visible indication of the previous growth.
Cauterization machine is generally more effective than liquid nitrogen in removing skin growths. Frequently, more than one application of liquid nitrogen is needed to remove a growth, whereas only one cauterized treatment is ever necessary. In addition, cauterization treatments are less expensive.
Once a skin growth has been treated with our equipment, it does not return. However; if your skin is prone to these types of growths, new ones may appear elsewhere on your face and body.
