In today’s perfection-driven and celebrity-obsessed society, beauty standards may be difficult to keep up with for even the most beauty-conscious individuals. One area of concern for numerous people is that of unsightly, annoying skin tags and moles. DermaNuva Skin & Health Care, located in Alberta, is proud to offer skin tag removal for our patients.
Skin tags, while harmless, are small bits of skin that typically show on our necks, armpits, or other various areas on the trunk of your body. Moles are usually darker in color and may show signs of additional health concerns. This is especially concerning if they change in size or color.
Fortunately, minor bodily imperfections are now easily remedied by quick, inexpensive visits to our office in Alberta. If your skin tags or moles are bothersome, or if their location makes you the victim of stares and comments, you may be considering skin tag or mole removal.
Here are a few things to consider when determining if you are a solid candidate for skin tag removal:
1) If your skin tag or mole is in a location that seems to get caught in jewelry or is rubbed raw by clothing, it may make sense to remove them based on that issue alone. This can cause wounds that may lead to infections.
2) Depending on the size and location, you may be a good candidate for laser mole or skin tag removal. You will receive this therapy over the course of just a few sessions, depending on severity. This is best if you are seeking to minimize scarring and recovery time after your skin tag or mole’s removal.
3) We may decide that the size and color of your mole or skin tag requires a biopsy to determine if cancerous cells are present. In this scenario, your mole or skin tag is likely to be shaved off or cut out.
4) Burning or freezing your skin tags off is an additional alternative for their removal. However, there have been instances where these grow back. If that is the case and you still feel as if the mole or skin tag is bothersome, you may require repeated removal sessions.
Of course, if you endure a mole or skin tag removal, the area will be thoroughly cleansed and numbed to minimize risk of infection and to ensure you will not feel a thing. You may benefit from mole or skin tag removal if you feel that you cannot get past seeing your skin tags and moles when you look in the mirror, if they are changing in color or size, or if they are being rubbed raw from repetitive motion.
If you still feel as if you would benefit from mole or skin tag removal after thoroughly researching the options available to you, scheduling an appointment with us at DermaNuva Skin & Health Care is the first and most important step. Only then will you be able to consult with us to discuss and weigh your options before deciding if you are a candidate for mole or skin tag removal.
