Cosmetic Dermatology involves using Advanced Diathermy to remove fibrous and vascular skin lesions such as Red Veins, Spider Veins, Blood Spots, Skin Tags, Warts, Seborrheic Warts, Milia, Pigmentation Patches and many other marks or lumps and bumps on the skin.
Here is a more detailed description of some of the blemishes that can be easily and safely removed with Advanced Diathermy:
TELANGIECTASIA: Dilated capillaries (thread veins).
SPIDER NAEVUS: Centrally dilated blood vessel with smaller capillaries radiating from it like spiders’ legs.
CHERRY ANGIOMA: Also known as Blood spots or Blood moles, Campbell de Morgan spots and Haemangioma, more commonly found on the torso but can occur anywhere.
SKIN TAGS: Also known as Filiform warts or Fibro-Epithelial Polyps, are pedunculated (on a stalk). These are frequently found in areas of friction especially on the neck, underarms and below the breast.
PLANE WARTS: Commonly found on neck, décolleté, backs of hands and around the knees.
VIRAL WARTS: Verruca Vulgaris commonly found around the nails and on the hands are caused by the HPV virus. The Plantar wart found on the feet known as a verruca is the same as a wart on the hand but growing inwards due to the pressure of the weight of the body on the feet.
SEBORRHOEIC KERATOSIS: Basal Cell Papilloma’s sometimes called warts. These occur with age and most people over the age of 50 have at least one. Commonly found on the face, torso, and arms. They vary tremendously in size and colour.
MILIA: These are sometimes known as whiteheads and are pearly white rounded lumps on cheeks and around eyes and eyelids.
SEBACEOUS HYPERPLASIA: Blocked sebaceous gland occurring from adolescence onwards commonly found on the face.
