Skin tags are benign skin growths and aren’t generally associated with problematic symptoms, so simply removing the tag is the appropriate treatment. It may not be a popular conversation topic, but an estimated 46% of adults will have had skin tags during their life. Not everyone who has had one will know because it may simply rub off or fall off through everyday use of that area of the body. It’s not only possible to have skin tags reoccur and still be in good health, but it’s likely! What is a Skin Tag?

Lasers are commonly used in cosmetic and medical procedures in part because of their ability to be able to target parts of the body with a high degree of precision. Lasers can also penetrate the skin far deeper than topical treatments. Usually when we hear about the lasers involved in these treatments, it’s easy to assume they’re an identical tool. Lasers actually come in a variety of constructions and uses, and an interesting application in cosmetic procedures is the solid state laser. Lasers can use different materials to excite ions into emitting light, including liquids and even gases. Initially ruby crystals were the first type of solid state laser in production, but the industry has developed specialized models with one of the more common lasers using neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet, or Nd:YAG. Some machines will redirect the laser through potassium…

These days, it’s becoming more common to have a tattoo than to not have one. From hand-drawn art to commemorating a lost one to proclaiming a loved one, tattoos vary in size, shape, and meaning. Some meanings remain more relevant than others, and some tattoos (while a good idea at the time) are no longer desired and can become sources of stress and embarrassment. Here are some tips on how to cover up the tattoos you don’t want anybody to see: High-quality and high-coverage makeup If you want to cover your tattoo for a short period of time (like for a job interview or a black tie affair), you can purchase thick foundation to cover it up. Choose carefully: it’s easy to make the mistake of buying cover-up that’s too pale, too dark, or too orange, which can stand out…

Lipomas sit beneath the skin, adding an unsightly and unwanted lump to our bodies. But what are they? And how do they affect us? Lipoma is the term for the growth of fat cells in a thin capsule just beneath the skin. They form in unsightly blemishes and can be located nearly anywhere on the body, but are commonly found along the torso, neck, upper arms or upper thighs, or in the armpits. The clump of fat cells that happen with lipoma are not cancerous – nor do they have the potential of becoming cancerous –and are the most common kind of the growth of soft tissue. Though scientists have yet to exactly determine what causes them, the tendency to get them is something that can be inherited. Lipoma usually appears with middle age. In worst-case scenarios, lipoma growths can…

KTP laser therapy is a cutting-edge procedure that can be used to erase unwanted skin blemishes. If you suffer from the skin discolouration known as port wine stains or vascular lesions, this treatment is one of your best options. In short, it can erase small red veins that emerge on our face, chest or neck that are highly visible, highly unwanted and, for some, highly embarrassing. It works by targeting unsightly blood vessels beneath the skin and, unlike other treatments for such cosmetically troublesome skin problems, it won’t leave you bruised. The procedure is done with minimal downtime, allowing you to even drive home afterward since it doesn’t use a general anaesthetic! Instead, the procedure will have only a few hours of downtime, as it uses not a major anaesthetic but rather a localized numbing agent. What’s more, it will…
