Frequently Asked Questions
Will The Conditions Return?
Downtime is minimal and the benefits of your treatment will be noticed instantly.
Are Verrucas Contagious?
Yes, verrucae are contagious and can easily be spread in areas where people often have bare feet, such as at public swimming pools.
Are Minor Skin Procedures Safe?
All of our procedures are carried out in highly clinical, sterilised operating rooms by doctors with many years’ experience following strict medical protocols. This means you can rest assured the procedure are very safe.
Does Wart and Verruca Treatment Hurt?
The level of comfort depends on the removal technique recommended. Laser Removal is virtually pain free. In more sensitive areas, it is described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band. For Excision Removal and Cryotherapy, the area will be numbed with a local anaesthetic so you won’t feel anything. After treatment the skin left behind may be tender for a few days and will need to be covered. It’s also best to use a strong sunscreen on the area for six months, as it will be more sensitive to sunlight.
Are Moles Dangerous?
Most moles are harmless. However, sometimes they can develop into a form of skin cancer called malignant melanoma. If you notice new moles or existing moles that have changed shape, colour, size, height, or if they become irritated or start bleeding, then it’s important you go to your GP immediately to get them checked and removed if necessary.
How Do You Catch Verruca?
Verrucas are easily contracted through direct contact from a verruca to healthy skin. It is also possible to develop a verruca through contact with objects that have been touched by the infected skin, such as towels, shoes and socks. As verrucae are contagious, the best prevention is to treat them as soon as possible to avoid them spreading.
Does Birthmark Removal Hurt?
In more sensitive areas, Birthmark Removal is described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band. The slight stinging sensation can be eased by applying a local anaesthetic cream. You may experience some redness and bruising in the area following treatment, but once this subsides you will see a permanent fading of your birthmark.
Is Birthmark Removal Safe?
Absolutely. The laser energy is selectively targeted to the faulty blood vessels or built-up pigment cells only, meaning that surrounding tissues are not affected and there is no lasting damage to the skin. Lasers have been used to remove birthmarks for years. We will ensure that the laser settings are safe and effective for your skin.
What Is A Mole?
A common mole is a coloured spot on the skin that develops when pigment cells (melanocytes) grow in clusters. The medical term for moles is melanocytic naevi and most adults usually have between 10 and 40 on their body. Although common moles may be present at birth, they usually appear later in childhood and increase during teenage years. During pregnancy moles often get darker and they can fade away completely from around the age of 50.
How can I remove my acne scars?
Acne scars can be stubborn and seemingly permanent, but there are proven effective treatments available to diminish the appearance of acne scarring (see ‘Treatments for acne scarring’ above). The best treatment for your skin will depend on the type of acne scarring you have. Before you undergo any treatment, a dermatologist or skin expert should assess your acne scars and select the most appropriate treatment for you.
What Happens After Skin Tag Removal?
There will be a small white scar where the skin tag has been removed. Other than that, complications are rare and you can go home as soon as your anaesthetic wears off.
What Results Will I See From Skin Tag Removal?
The treatment will completely remove your skin tag; however there will be a small white scar where the removal took place.
