Moles, Milia, Warts & Skin Tags for men

Achieve clearer skin with SkinSpaceUK’s trusted minor skin surgery for moles, milia, warts and skin tags for men. Embarrassing they may be, but these skin issues are actually incredibly common. In fact, the average adult male usually has between 10 and 40 moles on their body. 

So what causes these skin complaints? Most moles are simply caused by a harmless overgrowth of the pigment cells. Warts are hard growths on the skin, while skin tags are growths connected to the skin by a stalk called a peduncle. And Milia, the small, white or yellow cysts that appear in clusters just under the surface of the skin, occurs when keratin becomes trapped beneath the surface of the skin. 

Thankfully, most of the time these skin issues are completely harmless, but over time these growths can become unsightly and inconvenient, sprouting hair or catching when shaving or zipping up clothing. If you are concerned about a changing skin lesion, it is important to first get it assessed by a doctor prior to visiting our SkinSpaceUK clinics to ensure the mole is noncancerous. 

Once your GP has given the all clear, our expert clinicians are on hand to help you to achieve blemish free skin using scalpel sculpting or diathermy methods.

Scalpel Sculpting for Moles, Milia, Warts and Skin Tags FOR MEN – How Does it Work?

SkinSpaceUK makes light work of their removal, using a straightforward, minimally invasive procedure to eliminate these imperfections. The scalpel sculpting procedure is the method used for 95% of our clients. The treatment area is cleansed and a local or topical anaesthetic is applied to ensure the procedure is painless. 

There’s no deep cutting of the skin or stitches, thankfully. Instead, a scalpel delicately shaves the mole, wart or skin tag off. The area is then cauterized with an electrical instrument to seal the wound and stop any bleeding, before a small waterproof plaster is applied. Occasionally, we may need to treat a suspicious mole using an elliptical excision, which is a deeper incision, but our trained clinicians will be able to discuss your exact treatment plan with you. 

The results of scalpel sculpting? Clearer, smoother, blemish-free skin.

Diathermy for Moles, Milia, Warts and Skin Tags for men– How Does it Work?

SkinSpaceUK’s Diathermy method involves using radio waves to remove or visibly reduce the appearance of small skin blemishes without the need for injections, incisions, down time or surgery. This can be particularly effective if, for example, you would like multiple tags treated in one session. 

Moles, milia, warts and skin tags are removed using a short wave electrolysis diathermy, with different needles used depending on the type of lesion being treated. It’s a quick and effective way of removing unwanted skin blemishes, minus the stitches.

    TREATMENT FAQs

    SkinSpaceUK Moles, Milia, Warts & Skin Tag Removal

    How Long Does Treatment Take?

    Treatment sessions are generally quite short. The entire procedure takes approximately 15-60 minutes depending on the number of lesions being removed and what is being treated. For example, one small skin tag will take significantly less time then a cluster of warts, or a large mole.

    How Long Does Treatment Last?

    Our clinicians will use the latest techniques to make any scarring as faint as possible. Once treated your mole, skin tag or cyst is unlikely to grow back, although there is no guarantee that the removal of any lesion will be successful in every case or a permanent solution.

    What Are the Possible Side Effects and Risks?

    Though safe, any medical procedure is not entirely without risk. The risks of removing moles vary from infection, pigmentation, discoloration, anaesthetic
    allergy or nerve damage. One of the most common issues after mole removal is a scar or indentation. Many people choose to remove moles for cosmetic reasons, not realising they may be left with a small scar. However, over time any scarring will often fade.

    How Can I Prepare for the Treatment?

    It is important to note that we only remove skin lesions with verbal or written consent from your G.P or dermatologist. This must be obtained prior to your
    consultation with SkinSpaceUK.

    Please keep a keen eye out for any mole changes. If you’ve noticed that your mole has changed size, shape or colour or has bled, you will need to be refereed back to your G.P or dermatologist for further examination and
    pathology testing.

    On the day of your appointment, please eat a normal breakfast or lunch prior to your procedure.

    What Does the Aftercare Involve?

    The wound will usually heal on its own within a few weeks, so the aftercare is just simple tending to the site in the recovery period. If you have a dressing, remove it after 24 hours, gently wash and dry the area, and apply either Aquaphor or petroleum jelly as a protective barrier. Continue this routine until the area has healed, usually in one or two weeks. If pain relief is required, Paracetamol is recommended rather than aspirin (which may increase bruising or bleeding at the wound). Shaving can be resumed in the area once any scabs have fallen off. Avoid intense heat such as saunas or extreme cold until any initial swelling has gone. Note that full healing can take several months.

    Warts are hard growths on the skin, while skin tags are growths connected to the skin by a stalk called a peduncle.
