Benign moles, skin tags, and warts are common skin growths that are generally non-cancerous and do not pose significant health risks. These benign skin growths share a common trait of slow development and tend to remain confined to their original location. Understanding these shared characteristics is crucial for recognising and distinguishing these common skin conditions.

Dr. Tina is well-known for her experience in using a Radio-frequency device to remove benign moles, skin tags and warts.

BENIGN MOLES SKIN TAGS WARTS
Clusters of pigmented cells appearing as dark spots on the skin. Small, soft, hanging growths of skin, often on areas where skin rubs against skin. Small, rough growths caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).
Moles are usually formed due to the accumulation of melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) in the skin. The exact cause is not always clear, but friction between skin surfaces, hormonal changes, and genetics may contribute to their development. Warts are contagious and can be spread through direct contact.
While most moles are harmless, certain changes in size, colour, or shape may indicate a potential risk of melanoma, a type of skin cancer. Skin tags are generally harmless and do not lead to cancer. They are more common in areas where skin rubs against skin, such as the neck, armpits, and groin. While warts are usually harmless and may disappear on their own, they can be bothersome or unsightly.

How Can Radio-Frequency Device Remove Benign Moles, Skin Tags And Warts?

Traditionally, unsightly moles were removed through surgical excision and sutures. This method allowed for examination of the mole under histology, but it often resulted in scarring. This approach is now considered outdated.

Fortunately, it is now possible to remove moles or skin tags without leaving a scar by utilising a Radio-frequency device. This technology is commonly used in neurosurgeries, where precision is crucial.

Radio frequency delivers heat energy precisely to the targeted area without causing damage to the surrounding skin. Additionally, healing time is typically faster compared to excision or cryotherapy.

It is important to note that all lesions must be examined prior to removal. If a mole shows atypical features, Dr. Tina will send the tissue for further investigation.
