Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags are benign growths, either skin-colored or brown, most commonly found in the under arms, chest, neck, and groin area. They can be bothersome due to physical contact with clothing or jewelry, as well as just cosmetically unappealing.

How does it work?

The Hyfrecator used by Complexions Rx sends a small current through a disposable wand and vaporizes the skin tag close to the base.

Does it hurt?

A brief heating sensation can cause temporary, mild discomfort.

How about down time?

Redness around the treated area, lasting no longer than 72 hours, can be expected. You may resume your usual skin care routine following treatment, although the use of body scrubs and loofa(s) should be avoided until all areas are healed.

How long to see results?

The lesion will not be gone right away. It will slowly dry, crust, and slough off. You will need to wait at least 4 weeks to determine the final results of your treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

In some instances, a second treatment is required. If any lesions are treated twice without sufficient response, they will not be retreated. Referral to a M.D. for further evaluation and therapy will be made.
