Solution for skin tags, fibromas, blackheads

Solution for skin tags, fibromas, blackheads

POSTED ON: 10th November 2016

At health + aesthetics, we carry out a number of minor surgical procedures.  These include treating skin tags, thread veins, fibromas and keloid scars. While these conditions pose no threat to your health, we know from talking to our patients that they can be a source of anxiety and concern, particularly when they are visible to others, such as on the face or chest.

So, don’t suffer in silence, we have the solution and would welcome you at our clinic to hear about your specific problem.  In this blog, I’m going to explain a bit more about some of the common skin irregularities people seek surgery for and how we successfully treat them here at health + aesthetics.


They are non-malignant growths, composed of fibrous tissue that can be either flat or raised.

Skin tags

They are very similar – small flesh coloured or brown raised drops (like tiny fibromas) on the skin. These occur most often where the skin folds, such as in the armpits, eyelids and groin.  These are very common, particularly as we age, and occur in up to half the population.
Cauterising treats both skin tags and fibromas, this is a quick and simple procedure administered under local anaesthetic.  In the majority of cases only one treatment is sufficient.

They are a collection of small white spots, often referred to as milk spots. When keratin builds up, it becomes trapped in the skin rather than being naturally exfoliated. Comodones (or blackheads) are similar, but in this case they have been exposed to the air and become black due to oxidisation. Again the recommended treatment is cauterising using a specialist machine called Lamprobe.

Lamprobe works on the principle of attracting liquids through the application of heat and is a fantastic, non-invasive and quick way to treat a host of minor irregularities without penetrating the surface of the skin. Treatment lasts only a few seconds and the results are instant.

Blood spots (or cherry angiomas)

They are small concentrations of blood which are either flat or they might raise. Again, cauterisation using Lamprobe (see above), can effectively treat these conditions.

Keloid scars

And last but not least, another common skin issue we see are keloid scars. These are an overgrowth of scar tissue that grows lumpy, often pink or purple in colour and larger than the wound they are healing. We usually treat these with corticosteroid injections into the scar every 2-6 weeks until we see sufficient improvement.

All these treatments are very quick to administer and you will feel calm and relaxed in the quiet surroundings of our clinic. We will use a local anaesthetic cream to numb the area and you will experience only very minor discomfort afterwards.  To find out more about these or any other treatment, simply contact us at 01252 933 133 or
