Vascular Treatment and Skin Tag Removal
(Broken Capillary, Leg Veins, Facial Veins, Angiomas, and Skin Tag)
In Portland, OR
Skin tags, also known as acrochordons in medicine, are overgrowths of collagen and blood vessels on the skin’s surface that appear as a soft, fleshy lump on top of the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin. Normal skin tags occasionally enlarge because of a variety of growth factors, but they are benign growths that are never carcinogenic, and their existence doesn’t raise your chance of contracting any type of skin cancer. Take a deep breath!
Skin tags frequently develop on the upper body in places like the shoulder, armpit, neck, eyelid, chest/breast area, areas of skin folds, and on rare occasions the crotch. However, skin tags can develop on any area of the body with skin tissue, so their appearance in an unusual site is not necessarily a cause for alarm.
A variety of disorders are included under vascular lesions. Laser and light-based technologies have emerged as a feasible therapy option to remove and lessen unwelcome vascular issues, whether they are leg veins, facial veins, angiomas, venous lakes, or rosacea.
The Vascular Market
Up to 50% of women over the age of 18 have vascular lesions, which are common skin issues.1 While diffuse redness, telangiectasias, and spider veins can be systemic, they are frequently brought on by aging, sun exposure, or pregnancy. Currently, rosacea2, a chronic skin disorder, affects more than 45M people worldwide. When rosacea first appears, it resembles acne and is sometimes misdiagnosed as sunburn or rosy complexion due to its redness, the presence of blood vessels, and little red pimples. It also frequently gets worse with time.
Before and After Photos
After you remove your skin tag, make sure to keep the affected area clean to lower the risk of infection. Additionally, staying out of the sun during the first 24-48 hours is advised.
Till the area has had time to completely heal, keep any creams, makeup, fragrances, and lotions away from it. Use prescription medications as directed, and make sure to take painkillers as necessary.
No matter the method of removal, skin tags will not regrow if the treatment is carried out properly. If new moles or skin tags appear in the same general area, you may be more prone to developing skin tags there. You can choose removal once more in that circumstance, if you so wish.
Depending on the depth of the lesion, different vascular lesions on the face and body may require different numbers of therapy sessions.
