Thanks to modern day media and adverts and their tendency to feature attractive people with spectacular clear complexions, we are now more self-conscious than ever of blemishes on face, back and other body areas. Skin blemishes is a blanket term that encompasses many skin afflictions and imperfections including acne, moles, black marks on the skin and pigmentation marks. Warts and skin tags can also be considered skin blemishes.

Having skin blemishes, no matter what type or however big or small, can seriously knock your confidence, especially if you’re prone to comparing yourself to others who may be lucky enough to have a clearer complexion. They can render you experiencing low-self esteem that can escalate into feelings of depression, anxiety and self-inflicted social isolation.

We are proud to be able to make a clear, radiant complexion- free of skin blemishes- a likely possibility for you.

One such method we use to make this glowing complexion a reality for you is Shortwave Diathermy, which entails introducing the tip of the finest, smallest probe possible (about the size of an eyelash) into the line of the capillary (blood vessel) and discharging a tiny energy current. This high-frequency electromagnetic energy current creates heat. This warm temperature, in turn ‘dries up’ and destroys the unwanted vessel and closes up blood capillaries that cause blemishes.

Where skin tags are concerned, the energy emitted destroys the vessels ‘feeding’ the blemish, depriving it of nourishment, resulting in its elimination.

To combat warts, verrucas and skin tags, we use CryoPen’s safe and subtle devices to manipulate and apply cold Nitrous Oxide for the successful removal of warts, verrucas and other unwanted skin lesions.

Causes

Acne, black marks on skin and pigmentation spots can all be caused by oil-clogged pores and stress, amongst other factors.

Warts and verrucas on the other hand, are a result of the the human papilloma virus (HPV). This virus leads to an excess of a substance called keratin to grow in the top layer of skin. Consequently, hard, rough lump develops.

Looking similar to warts, skin tags are small flesh-coloured or brown growths that hang off the skin. While anyone can develop skin tags for any reason, they usually sprout in areas where the skin rubs against skin or clothing. This provides an explanation as to why skin tags effect people who are overweight or younger children, who tend have extra folds of skin and experience skin chafing.

When cells in the skin develop in a cluster, rather than being spread throughout the skin, moles can appear. These clustering cells are called melanocytes and they are responsible for the pigment that provides skin with its natural colour. Following exposure to the sun, moles tend to darken.
