What does Skin Blemishe Removal involve?

Short wave diathermy current is delivered through a fine needle to cauterise the skin blemishes. Within a few days the treated area turns dark, shrinks and falls off, leaving a faint pink skin which will subside within a few weeks. There are minimal side effects on the skin and only a short healing time is required.


What causes the Skin Tags?

Any type of friction and constant rubbing, ageing, sun damage, hereditary seems to be the cause of skin tags. Men tend to get them around neck due to the tight collar, women find them around the bra line, stomach, underarms or in the groin area.


What is the most effective method for removing Skin Tags?

Skin Tags removed with shortwave diathermy has absolutely no side effects and after a short healing time you will not know where the skin tag used to be.

The method that the Doctors use of cutting them usually results in some scarring and a much longer healing time.


What does the Mole removal treatment involve?

The same method as the skin tag is used, however the technique is different. When the mole is cauterised with heat, it immediately shrinks and reduces in size, after a few days , it scabs and peels off. Once the scab comes off, some erythema remains for a few weeks, until new skin is formed. Shortwave diathermy is a safe and effective way to remove moles, sebaceous cysts, keratosis and millia.

Do I need to get my Moles checked before having the treatment?

Some moles, that appear crusty, irregular and have changed need to be checked by the Doctor, however, most other moles are just sebacoeus cysts or keratosis that can be easily removed without being checked.
