Skin Tags & Facial Vein Removal

 

Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags, sometimes known as barnacles, are harmless growths of projected flesh.  They often appear in areas with increased friction (i.e. – under the breast where a bra may rub or areas frequently shaven).  While skin tags do not pose any medical risks, patients may wish to have them removed for aesthetic concerns. We can remove them with Pelleve Radio Frequency Treatment. Minimal discomfort, no downtime and no bleeding.

Facial Vein Removal

Have you noticed those little spider veins popping up around your nose or on other areas of the face as you age? Although they may look scary, they are rarely a serious medical concern. Instead of piling on the makeup to cover these red and purple veins, why not take care of them permanently? We can reduce the appearance of facial spider veins with Pelleve Radio Frequency treatment. Multiple treatments may be necessary depending on the extent of facial veins.
