Both men and women tend to get skin tags as they age. Skin tags are also more common in pregnant women, obese people, and people with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

More than half if not all of the general population has been reported to have skin tags at some time in their lives. Although tags are generally acquired (not present at birth) and may occur in anyone, more often they arise in adulthood. They are much more common in middle age, and they tend to increase in prevalence up to age 60.

Children and toddlers may also develop skin tags, particularly in the underarm and neck areas. Since skin tags are thought to arise more in areas of skin friction or rubbing,  skin tags are also more common in overweight people.

In reality, some people are more prone to developing skin tags and may have new growths periodically. That’s why some individuals require periodic skin tags removal at annual intervals.

Electrocautery is a very effective procedure that uses light electrical current to burn off the skin tags in only one session.

The Cool Glide laser hair removal technology effectively destroys the hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin. We ask you to shave the treatment area before your laser hair removal treatment to better target the hair follicles. The treated area may be a little red afterward, which typically goes away in a matter of hours. A good candidate for laser hair removal treatment is someone with pale to medium skin tone with light brown to dark hair. No laser hair removal or light based system can treat blonde, white, red or gray hair since there is not enough melamine in the hair follicle to absorb the light.

You may need 4-8 sessions which are spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Why do you need 4-8 sessions? Laser hair removal systems can only treat hair in its active growing stage. Therefore, we need to treat an area by several treatments to capture all the hair in the growing phase. Is laser hair removal totally permanent? Yes, the hair we treat with Cool Glide laser will not grow back and clients can expect 85% reduction in hair after 4-8 treatments. As we age our hair patterns change, so this does not prevent possibility of new hair growth over the years.

Our Cool Glide Laser hair removal system is considered the gold standard in the laser industry because of its long history of safety and effectiveness on all skin types -even on tanned skin. We can treat not only coarse hair but fine facial hair as well. Nell laser clinic has the right mix of experience, skills, and technology to deliver top quality beauty and wellness treatments.
