Skin Tag Removal

OVEO Plasma pen is the machine we use to provide this highly innovative treatment used to eliminate skin blemishes and remove abnormal and unwanted tissue.

It uses plasma, a special form of a gas that has an electrical energy, to work throughout the skin from the epidermis deep into the dermis. The Plasma causes a process called sublimation which turns a solid into a gas so results are instant with moles, skin tags and warts being removed in minutes.

What is Plasma used for?

The Plasma is used to remove moles, skin tags and warts which are either inconvenient due to clothing rubbing and catching on them, or considered unsightly by the client. Moles must have been checked by a G.P prior to removal.

Conditions suitable for treatment with Short Wave Diathermy include:

· Moles – Will require a letter from your G.P that confirms the cosmetic nature of the lesion.

· Skin tags

What does the treatment involve?

After careful consultation and explanation the area to be treated is cleaned prior to the application numbing cream is applied to the skin. Multiple shots of Plasma spaced closely together are administered with the treatment taking just minutes to perform. The Plasma causes a process called sublimation which turns a solid into a gas so essential ‘vaporises’ the skin being targeted. There is no heat transferred to surrounding tissues and therefore no damage caused to the rest of the skin.

Results are instant with mole, skin tag and wart removal. Following treatment a little dark brown micro-crust can be seen in the treatment site which will flake off after approximately 5 days. You should be prepared for your skin to be left slightly pink from the heat that was applied and for slight puffiness to manifest in some areas. These symptoms are usually short lived. For the first

48 hours following treatment you should take the following steps to treat your skin with care and aid its’ healing:

  • · Pay particular attention to hygiene and avoid touching the treated area
  • · Keep the treated area dry and free from creams / perfumes
  • · Avoid excessive exercise and anything that causes sweating
  • · Protect skin with a high SPF sun protection and avoid sun exposure for a minimum of 48 hours
  • · Avoid extremes of temperature such as sauna, steam room, sun beds etc.
