Essex Medical Aesthetics, helping you to look as good as you feel
We are able to remove skin tags, moles, small cysts or warts.
Skin tags can be removed depending on size, with electric or cryotherapy cautery (freezing with liquid nitrogen). Electric cautery takes a few minutes. The skin tag is injected with local anaesthetic and then cut with a hot wire in seconds. One of the major advantages of this type of surgery is that stitches/sutures are not required. The cut heals in 4-6 weeks, with normal skin.
Cryotherapy cautery uses liquid nitrogen. Liquid nitrogen is sprayed for about 10 seconds on to a skin tag or wart, causing a slight stinging sensation. The tag or wart will fall off after a week, leaving a scar that will fade in a few weeks. Usually treatment needs to be repeated several times at 2 weekly intervals.
Large skin tags, cysts or moles need to be cut out using a local anaesthetic and sutured. Skin sutures are normally removed about 7 days later.
Keloid scars are very common with dark skins after surgery or injury. We use steroid injections into the scar to thin out thick scars. 3-4 injections are needed at 4 weeks intervals -depending on thickness and size of scar. Price starts from £100 per treatment (not per injection). At first consultation one price will be given for entire treatment.
- Electric cautery £25-100 depending on procedure
- Cryotherapy £25-50 depending on procedure
- Excision £50-100
