Skin tags are common, harmless skin growths that look like a small, soft balloon of hanging skin. They are believed to be affiliated with genetics, hormones, friction, and conditions such as obesity. Skin tags are most common on the neck, underarms, and trunk of the body.
Milia are small, hard white/yellow cysts that occur when keratin (dead skin cells) gets trapped beneath the skin. They are most common on the forehead, on the cheeks, and around the eyes . They cannot be scrubbed away or squeezed out without safely creating an opening in the skin.
During your spa treatment, a laser energy source will be pulsed against the skin lesion until it is fully removed. The treatment is relatively comfortable and most patients describe it as a quick, hot prickling sensation on the skin.
Most of our clients see complete removal in one session, although up to three sessions may be needed for more persistent milia.
Unlike other methods, our laser method requires no scarring or downtime after your procedure. Your clinician will discuss the proper post care to keep your treatment area clear and healthy and to ward off the event of any recurrence.
