Removal of skin tags and warts.
Fusion Plasma technology can effectively remove all types of moles, skin tags, warts and verrucas. Our device uses Fusion Plasma by applying the principle of ionisation of gases contained in the air to get a small electrical arc similar to a tiny lightning.
The main principle is a superficial electric discharge (plasma) on the skin which causes the skin to shrink permanently. It is a patented modality of operation and allows it to burn the superficial part of the skin (epidermis) causing it to reduce in size. This micro lightning will cause a very targeted and localised ablation of a very thin layer of the skin tissue. The effect of the micro lightening is the ablation of the top layers of the skin.
These unsightly and unwanted blemishes can be removed quickly and easily using an Advanced Cosmetic Procedure based on a technique using micro lightening frequency. The procedure works whereby a fine probe, in such a way as to cauterise the blood supply which gives the blemish its life source. Warts respond exceptionally well to this procedure, again with 100% success*. This treatment has cut down the cost of many procedures that were before invasive and expensive.
Warts are actually an infection in the top layer of skin, caused by viruses in the human papillomavirus, or HPV, family. When the virus invades this outer layer of skin, usually through a tiny scratch, it causes rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of skin – creating the wart.
Skin tags are believed to develop due to friction between adjacent areas of skin or between clothing and skin. Common sites for skin tags include the following:
- The underarms
- Upper chest (particularly beneath the breasts in women)
- Groin folds
Because of the increased skin-to-skin contact and friction, skin tags are more common in overweight or obese people. Although skin tags can sometimes be seen in children, they tend to increase with age and are most common in middle-aged and older individuals. Skin tags are not cancers. Reports of skin cancers arising in skin tags are extremely rare.
How do people get common skin warts?
If you have any type of skin wart, it means that you came in contact with a wart-causing virus sometime in the past, though it could have been months ago.
“People get warts from other people with warts, they don't get them from frogs and toads,” says Robert Brodell, MD, a dermatologist in Warren, Ohio. “The most common way is direct skin-to-skin contact, such as shaking hands with someone who has warts on their hand. You can also get the virus from inanimate objects, like towels that have been used by someone with a wart.”
The viruses are more likely to cause warts when they come in contact with skin that is damaged or cut. Getting a small scrape or biting finger nails may bring on wart. Similarly, cuts and nicks from shaving can provide an avenue for infection. This explains why men may have warts in the beard area, while women often have them appear on the legs.
What causes skin tags?
Skin tags can appear smooth or irregular, and may attach to the skin by a short, narrow stalk called a "peduncle."
Doctors don't know for certain what causes tags, but skin rubbing against skin may play a role, since the growths usually occur among skin folds — in the armpits, neck and groin, and sometimes on eyelids.
Some studies show an association between skin tags and low-risk forms of of human papilloma virus (HPV), so those viruses may help cause the growths. Additionally, the condition seems to run in families, so doctors suspect a genetic component.
Skin tags appear commonly, affecting about 45 percent of the population. They tend to happen more frequently among older people, women, the overweight and those with diabetes.
All our photographs of before and after treatment results are examples only, and do not constitute an implied or any other kind of guarantee of the result of treatment procedures. Results can vary significantly between our clients. All our treatment results are subject to the individualities of each client.
Furthermore, all treatment procedures carry potential risks and complications which are described in detail in our treatment consents forms. These may include, but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the result and the expense of further treatments to manage a complication (patient forms). If you have any questions regarding these potential risks and complications. Please discuss them with our doctors or aesthetic therapist prior to treatments.
Before undergoing a treatment, please be sure that you understand that YOUR actual results will likely VARY SIGNIFICANTLY from other patient’s results, including their BEFORE & AFTER photos.
This is quite important to understand — that EVEN when you feel that you look very similar to another client in their BEFORE images, your results will likely vary significantly — because you are a unique person. Every individual has NOT only a completely unique physique, but also uniquely individualistic body healing capacities, scarring tendencies and recovery processes — some of which are unpredictable even in very-healthy patients who rest adequately and do ALL the other right things before and after their procedure.
Please be noted, our doctors and aesthetic therapists offer you our highest expertise in our aesthetic procedures.
