Annoying Growths or Skin Tags
It is easy to get rid of annoying unsightly moles, skin tags and broken blood vessels. As we go through life, all of us gradually acquire benign but annoying growths on our skin. The most common of these are skin tags, moles, seborrheic keratoses, and cherry hemangiomas.
Rarely, moles can turn into skin cancer, and very rarely there are skin cancers that can look like SKs, skin tags or cherry hemangiomas. Dr. Smith is a specialist in Dermatology, and is always careful to examine each mole or other growth for signs suggestive of cancer before deciding what advice and treatment to offer you.
Skin tags are flesh coloured or brown growths ranging in size from about 1 mm to 1 cm, most commonly hanging from the neck, underarms and groin. Dr. Smith can safely and painlessly remove your skin tags. No stitches are required, and in about a week or so it will be hard for anyone to see where the skin tags were.
Venous Lakes are dark purple bumps on the lower lips, usually in people over the age of 40. These are actually collections of blood vessels, and can be easily and painlessly eliminated using my Cutera® CoolGlide™ vascular laser.
Seborrheic keratosis “SKs” are flesh coloured to brown or black, range in size from several mm to several cm, and often have a dry crumbly appearance, kind of like a piece of stuck on bubble gum or mud. As time goes on, SKs increase in size and number. SKs can be unpleasant to touch, embarrassing, unsightly and occasionally get irritated. Dr. Smith can remove your SKs without the need for stitches.

Moles are benign flesh coloured or brown bumps, usually ranging in size from 1 mm to 1 cm, often on the face and neck, and less commonly on other parts of the body. Removal of benign moles can usually be done without the need for stitches, and the treated area heals up within a week or two.
The cost to remove the lesions described above starts at $80, depending on the size, number and location of the things you would like treated.
