Removing Skin Tags with Fotona Laser

thumbnail preview

Skin tags, while harmless, can be a nuisance for many, affecting both appearance and comfort. While there are various methods for removing skin tags, Fotona laser technology offers a safe, effective, and minimally invasive solution.

Understanding Skin Tags:

Skin tags, medically known as acrochordons, are benign growths that typically appear on areas of the body where skin rubs against skin or clothing. While they pose no health risks, skin tags may cause irritation or discomfort, especially if they catch on jewelry or clothing. Commonly found on the neck, underarms, eyelids, and groin, skin tags vary in size and appearance but are generally flesh-colored or slightly darker than surrounding skin.

Fotona Laser Technology – How It Works:

Fotona laser technology precisely targets and removes unwanted skin tags. Unlike traditional methods such as cutting or freezing, Fotona laser is non-invasive and minimizes the risk of scarring or infection. The laser emits high-intensity light energy, which is absorbed by the pigment within the skin tag, causing it to heat up and coagulate. This process effectively destroys the blood vessels supplying the skin tag, leading to its gradual shrinkage and eventual disappearance.

The Benefits of Fotona Laser Removal:

  • Precision: Fotona laser technology allows for precise targeting of individual skin tags, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue and ensuring optimal results.
  • Minimally Invasive: Unlike surgical excision or cryotherapy, Fotona laser treatment is non- invasive and typically requires no anesthesia or downtime. Clients can undergo treatment and resume their daily activities immediately afterward.
  • Versatility: In addition to removing skin tags, Fotona laser technology can be used to address various other dermatological concerns, including vascular lesions, pigmented lesions, and even skin rejuvenation.
  • Quick and Convenient: Fotona sessions are usually quick and convenient, with most procedures completed in just a few minutes per skin tag. Depending on the number and size of skin tags being treated, multiple sessions may be required for optimal results.

What to Expect During Treatment:

Before undergoing Fotona laser treatments, we recommend booking in for a consultation with our in house specialist to discuss expectations. During the procedure, a handheld laser device is used to deliver controlled pulses of energy to the targeted skin tags. Clients may experience a mild tingling or stinging sensation, but discomfort is generally minimal and well-tolerated. Depending on the size and number of skin tags being treated, sessions typically last between 15 to 30 minutes.

Results and Recovery:

After the treatment, clients may experience mild redness or swelling in the treated areas, which usually resolves within a few hours to days. The skin tags may darken or crust over before gradually falling off over the course of a week or two. While individual results may vary, most experience significant improvement after just one session, with complete removal achieved after multiple treatments.

With its precision, minimal invasiveness, and impressive results, Fotona laser offers a safe, effective, and convenient solution for individuals seeking to rid themselves of unwanted skin tags.
