A skin tag is a small, soft, benign skin growth on the skin.They tend to appear anywhere throughout the body; including the eyelids, chest, neck, and armpits. A person may have anywhere from one to hundreds of skin tags, and almost everyone will develop a skin tag at some point in their lives. Although some skin tags may fall off spontaneously, most persist once formed. The medical name for skin tag is acrochordon.
Skin tags are generally harmless; however, they may become irritated from rubbing against clothing or their appearance may become bothersome. Therefore, many individuals choose to remove their skin tags.
Skin tags can be easily removed at Dream Spa Medical. The treatment is done by a Medical Aesthetician and the procedure requires no downtime. If you are unsure about any changes in your skin or growths arising on the skin, always check with your Medical Aesthetician who can identify skin tags and other skin conditions. Your Medical Aesthetician will then help you decide whether skin abnormalities should be removed.
Acne scars occur when normal tissue in the skin is destroyed and replaced with fibrous tissue. You can think of an acne lesion as a wound. When the damage caused by acne is severe, the body can respond by creating too much tissue or too little tissue. The production of too much tissue forms a keloid or a hypertrophic scar, and too little tissue leads to that depression in the skin, or atrophic scar.
It is important to properly treat and heal the scar tissue in order to eliminate the scar on the surface. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) Collagen Induction Therapy is an all-natural treatment for acne scars because it uses your own body's growth factors to repair damaged cells.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy, begins by drawing blood from the patient's body, similar to a simple lab blood test. This blood is then put into a machine (centrifuge) that works to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) from the blood contains at least 8 essential natural growth factors from your own body. These growth factors are infused into the treated area, which in-turn, causes a natural and healthy production of new collagen and elastin.
