If you have skin tags, you know how irritating they can be. They get caught on jewelry; cut by a razor; and pinched by a bra or waistband. They can also make waxing your bikini line difficult. Men become embarrassed to take off their shirts and it's certainly bothersome to have large skin tags on your eyelid.
So, it is not surprising that people consider skin tag removal so important in their lives. CoLaz can definitely help you in tackling this problem.
What Is A Skin Tag?
Some people are more prone to develop skin tags than others. Doctors believe that it may have something to do with genetics since they tend to run in families. They also seem to be more prevalent in overweight people and tend to increase during pregnancy due to changing hormones.
These can form anywhere on your body but usually are found on the eyebrows, face, neck, underarms and beneath the bra line. They also appear on the eyelid or bikini line.
They look like soft, jingly, wobbly bits of skin usually caused by friction when skin rubs against skin such as with the underarms or breasts. Or when skin rubs against clothing, particularly around shirt collars and undergarments.
Although most begin as very tiny spots, some will continue to grow and can become as large as a grape. Most often they are flesh colored but can also be slightly brown.
In most cases, they are harmless, but aside from being unattractive, they can be irritating and even painful when they are rubbed or become caught on clothing and jewelry.
Removing A Skin Tag
Many people believe that skin tags removal will cause more to grow, but there is no evidence to show that this is true. However, some people are more prone to develop skin tags so regular removal may be necessary.
There are a lot of home remedies available, but you should be careful when using any of these methods to get rid of skin tags as they can sometimes cause scarring.
Some people suggest tying a thread or dental floss around the tag to cut off the blood supply, or simply using a small pair of scissors to cut them off. It is not recommended that you try removing large skin tags on your own since they can bleed and there is risk of infection.
Some companies also manufacture over-the-counter skin tag removal kits. The thing is, they are often quite expensive and many people are disappointed with the results. You may have some success with home remedies, but if you have a lot of skin tags or they are larger in size, it may be necessary to seek professional or medical help who actually know how to remove skin tags.
The good news is that removing skin tags is easy at Colaz Salons with advanced electrolysis cauterization.
Advanced Electrolysis for Permanently Removing Skin Tags
We cauterize the skin tags with an electrolysis needle, which does not leave any scarring and ensures they will not reappear. The size and number of tags you have will determine how many treatments you'll need.
The skin tag treatment causes minimal pain so we can remove most skin tags without using anesthesia. (However, we may apply a topical anesthetic for larger tags.) Although temporary discoloration may occur, there is no permanent scarring.
Laser Therapy for Removing Skin Tags
We recommend laser therapy if your skin tags have not responded to other methods of removal, including electrolysis. We will apply a local anesthetic to the area, and then we use a probe to send an intense beam of focused light into the skin tag, cauterizing it.
