Aging can be a drag, and one of the most annoying parts are the seemingly multiplying bumps, blotches and blemishes on our skin. If we’ve had an active, exciting life, our skin can sometimes reflect that– in not so positive ways. For many women, one of those issues are the skin tags that seem to pop up in the weirdest places. The good news is there’s a new treatment for skin tags and other minor conditions that’s quick, comfortable and available at your favorite medi-spa, so no doctor’s appointment is needed.
What is a Skin Tag?
A skin tag is a kind of tiny benign tumor known as a fibroma. They’re usually raised with a little stem rather than just being a bump on the skin (hence the idea of a “tag”). They can be the same color as the skin or darker. They’re often found on the face, neck, under the breasts, armpits and along the bra-line. Many clients even get them on the eyelids where they can be especially annoying and block vision. They’re not dangerous or painful but because they stick out from your skin, they can become irritated (and irritating) and can also have a negative impact on appearance.
What Causes Skin Tags?
They may be related to skin rubbing, as they’re often found in places with creases or folds of skin that rub to
gether or in places where clothing and straps rub against the skin. Doctors have also looked at hormonal connections (in particular hormones related to pregnancy) since they’re so much more common in women. Diabetes and high blood sugar have also been linked to skin tags. However, in some cases, they’re likely caused by the dryer and less elastic skin that comes with age. The good news is they’re easier than ever to remove.
How Can I Remove My Skin Tags?
Safely removing skin tags used to require an expensive visit to the dermatologist where they’d be cut off, frozen or burned. Now, skin tags can be safely and non-invasively treated at your medi-spa by a trained esthetician using a new non-invasive technology called Lamprobe.
What Is Lamprobe and What Conditions Does It Treat?
Lamprobe is a state of the art device that uses radio frequencies to treat minor skin conditions without penetrating the skin’s surface. The Lamprobe needle safely and quickly cauterizes skin tags without affecting the surrounding skin.
Lamprobe treats a wide range of minor (but annoying) skin issues, including:
- sebaceous cysts
- clogged pores
- minor vascular issues like red moles and spider veins
It’s also fantastic at treating various conditions related to the thickening of the skin as we age (also called hyperkeratosis) including fibromas and skin tags.
What Should I Expect from a Lamprobe Skin Tag Treatment?
Our clients are giving Lamprobe the best reviews. There are tons of upside with essentially zero negatives.
- Lamprobe treatments are unbelievably quick, lasting just 3 to 5 seconds.
- Treatments are non-invasive and don’t require anesthesia.
- It usually takes only one treatment to remove a skin tag or other blemish.
- Discomfort is minimal and your skin is left clear and soft with no scarring.
