Many people dislike raised moles and skin tags on their face or visible parts of the body. Sometimes these lesions are located in areas that rub against clothing or bra straps, which causes discomfort. For this reason, we receive lots of enquiries about the ability to remove these lesions safely and without scarring. Radiosurgery is a quick, painless and scarless technique to remove these lesions, see two of our happy patients below.
Moles are skin growths made up of cells that produce color (pigment). A mole can appear anywhere on the skin, alone or in groups. Most people get a few moles during their first 20 years of life. They are usually brown in color but can be blue, black, or flesh-colored. Most moles are harmless and don't cause pain or other symptoms unless you rub them or they bump against something.
Skin tags are small, soft pieces of skin that stick out on a thin stem. They most often appear on the neck, armpits, upper trunk, and body folds. The cause of skin tags is not known. They are harmless.
