A Skin Tag is a common skin growth that looks like a small piece of hanging skin, often described as bits of skin-or flesh-coloured tissue that project from the surrounding skin from a small, narrow stalk. They typically occur on the neck, underarms, eyelids, and under the breasts. They are harmless and do not become cancerous or malignant. Skin tags are usually inherited.

They are made up of a cluster of tiny capillaries at the surface of the skin, and can range in color from bright red to purple. As they grow larger, they tend to expand in thickness, and may take on the raised and rounded shape of a dome and may be located on any part of the body. Everyone seems to develop a few, but the number is genetically determined. They usually appear in early adulthood; but the onslaught in those genetically inclined tend to increase as one approaches their40s. Red dots considered to be painless and harmless.

Milia often referred to as (milk spots), are keratin-filled cysts that can appear just under the epidermis. They are common in people of all ages, they appear mostly on the face. They are easily removed by Vascu-Lyse in one session. SEBACEOUS HYPERPLASIA Seborrheic Keratosis– are flesh-colored, brown, or black growths that can appear anywhere on the skin. These harmless growths are very common in middle-aged and older people. Seborrheic keratosis are round or oval and vary in size. They appear to be stuck on the skin and often have a waxy or scaly surface. They are normally painless, and require no treatment. But often are removed for cosmetic reasons. FLAT HYPER PIGMENTATION (SUN & AGE SPOTS)
Hyper pigmentation- is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color then the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. Age or “liver” spots are a common form of hyperpigmentation. They occur due the sun damage. These small, darkened patches are usually found on the hands and face or other areas frequently exposed to the sun.
TELANGIECTASIA & SPIDER AN ANGIOMAS Telangiectasia – (broken capillaries) most commonly found on the cheeks and nose area, these appear as small red/pink threads under the skins surface. Broken capillaries occur when the capillary walls narrow and widen too quickly causing the muscles in the walls to tear. This in turn allows the blood to seep out resulting in broken capillaries. Spider Angioma –is a combination of a ruby point and telangiectasia. They are often found on the face, especially around the eyes and nose. Causes are very similar to telangiectasia. Dehydrated, dry and sensitive skin that is often thin, has less protection and therefore, these skin types are the most commonly affected. Common causes: Hot conditions, wind blowing on face, sunburns, pressure (impression spot from eye/sun glasses). CHOLESTEROL DEPOSITS Cholesterol Deposits (Xanthelasma) are tiny (1-2 mm) yellowish plaques that are slightly raised on the skin surface of the upper or lower eyelids. Xanthelasma is caused by tiny deposits of fat in the skin and is often associated with abnormal blood fat levels.
What are broken capillaries?
Commonly found on the cheeks and around the nose, broken capillaries and the resulting spidery red marks occur when capillary walls widen and narrow too quickly causing muscle wall to tear and blood to leak out.
Close to the skin’s surface, it’s not difficult to damage the delicate veins located there. A number of factors can be the cause broken capillaries and thread veins including extreme weather conditions, sunburn, excess pressure on the face – often caused by squeezing spots, as well as an unavoidable genetic disposition. Although all skin types are susceptible to broken capillaries, damage tends to show up much more on paler complexions.
Once formed, broken capillaries don’t heal and they’re difficult to treat. As you get older, skin often gets thinner which can also causes any existing damage to look worse as it becomes easier to see.
What’s the best way to deal with broken capillaries?
Aside from relying on a consealer, the only methods of dealing with broken capillaries involve a specialist skin therapist. Laser treatment promises the most pain-free approach and with minimal downtime.
Thermolysis gets the job done quicker than laser, it’s unsurprisingly the most popular option.
Before the treatment begins, the target area is fully cleansed to allow damaged capillaries to be fully examined and a relevant course of action to be planned.
With eyes fully covered, a narrow laser is used on the face allowing for optimal penetration and a more accurate target treatment. The therapist literary zaps individual capillaries with a pen like device to destroy these small visible veins, while numbing the surrounding area with a jet of soothing cold air.
The vast majority of broken capillaries should disappear after just one treatment of a small area, but it may be necessary to factor in a follow up appointment to deal with more stubborn damage.
Does it work?
Yes excellent results after just one treatment .Surprisingly the cost beats laser treatments, at half the cost and time.
