Skin Tag and Wart Removal

Thermolysis – Effective Removal of Skin Tags, Warts, and Seborrhoeic Keratosis

Here at the Park Private Clinic, we offer skin lesion removal by Thermolysis. This is where heat energy is used to break down the lesion. However, this depends on your situation, how big the skin lesion is, where it is on your body and what kind of a lesion it is. The doctor or laser technician will firstly consult with you as well as thoroughly inspecting the skin lesion. Through the use of Thermolysis, the lesion is then cauterized from the skin.

It’s important to be assessed first so your skin lesion can be correctly identified, and if it can be treated.

What is a skin tag?

A skin tag is a small, common skin growth occurring anywhere on the body. They are common on the neck, armpits, eyelids and under the breasts. Some skin tags can grow larger over time, and this can be an irritating problem.

What are warts?

Warts are small lumps than develop on the skin. They are usually firm and raised and mostly have a rough, irregular surface.

What is Seborrhoeic Keratosis?

These are a type of wart. They are common, harmless growths on the skin. The colour can range from pink to almost black.

 

As with any skin lesion being removed, you may experience the following:

  • Discomfort – An anaesthetic will be applied to the skin lesion and the area surrounding it, in order to ensure comfort. However, some pain may be felt during and after the procedure, which is natural and should subside with time.
  • Infection – Although it’s rare, an infection may occur where the skin procedure was performed
  • Pigment changes – As the area heals, it may be the case that the area becomes lighter or darker. Usually, pigment changes are temporary, it can be part of the healing process but rarely may be permanent.
  • Scarring – As the skin’s surface is being disrupted, scarring may occur. To minimize the chance of scarring, it is important that post treatment guidelines are followed.
