Dealing with skin tags

By: Sue Dewes

Do you have those annoying skin tags that will often appear on your neck, underarm, groin and under the breast area? They can catch on your clothing and be most uncomfortable and sometimes unsightly.  Did you know they can be easily treated with Cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a cold therapy using nitrous oxide under high pressure, used to freeze and destroy benign skin lesions. The liquefied nitrous oxide destroys tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid which forms ice shards and crystals that rupture the cell membranes destroying the cell. 

A relatively low-risk procedure, it uses a pinpoint directional applicator for delivery of N2O directly to the lesion and not healthy surrounding tissue.

Other skin lesions that can be treated are solar warts, age spots and cherry angiomas. It is recommended lesions be assessed by a medical practitioner to ensure they are benign prior to treatment. Treatments take a matter of minutes.

At Tranquillo Beauty Clinic we have the latest Dermapen Cryo to ensure the safest treatments of these lesions can be performed.
