When you look in the mirror and see scars, skin tags or moles, are you dismayed? Whether from an injury, UV exposure or simply hormones and aging, these common skin growths can have a negative impact on your appearance. If you are ready to look your best again, Laser Cliniqúe can help with our scar, skin tag and mole and wart removal services.

At Laser Cliniqúe, our goal is to provide skin treatments that are highly effective, as well as minimally invasive. That is why we offer minimally invasive treatment for scar, skin tag & mole and wart removal.

For scars, we offer treatment that is tailored for your skin type, size of the flaw, and its visibility. Our goal is to lighten the appearance of the scar or to remove it completely, depending on what is possible, and your specific wishes and needs. Skin tags and warts can be removed using surgical tools, freezing technology or an excision process. For moles, we can use Laser Surgery, Traditional Surgery, Electrosurgery and a variety of other techniques. Regardless of the technique used, you can be certain that the result will make a dramatic difference, and restore self-confidence in your appearance.

What Are Moles and Skin Tags?


Moles

Moles are typically benign skin lesions. They are darker than the surrounding skin because they are made up of cells that produce pigment. Most moles are brown in color, but they can be black, blue, or flesh-colored, as well. They can appear anywhere on the skin, in groups or individually.

Most moles appear during the first 25 years of life, and it is considered normal to have 10 to 40 by the time you reach adulthood. They may change color or become raised over time.

Melanocytes are the cells that make the pigment that gives the skin its natural color. Moles develop when these cells grow in clusters, rather than being more evenly distributed throughout the skin. They may darken during adolescence, after exposure to the sun, or during pregnancy.

Skin Tags

Skin tags are invariably benign. These lesions are small flaps of skin protruding out from the body on a thin stem. Skin tags are most commonly found on the neck, chest, armpits, back, under the breasts, and in the groin area. They appear most frequently in women, particularly with weight gain, and in older people.

One theory is that skin tags are caused by blood vessels and bunches of collagen trapped inside thicker segments of skin. They are believed to be caused by skin rubbing against skin, which is why they are more commonly found in skin folds and creases. Skin tags are common:

  • In overweight and obese people (who have more skin folds and creases)
  • During pregnancy, when hormonal changes occur
  • In people with diabetes
  • With sex steroid imbalance -- when changes in levels of estrogen and progesterone occur

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated March 17th, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 13th, 2020.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until March 30th.
  • The office will be closed but we will see our urgent follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
