The process for Skin Tag, Spot & Milia Removal that Shikha is trained in is Diathermy.

Diathermy is a safe and effective cosmetic procedure performed to treat skin problems such as skin tags, spider veins, dilated and broken capillaries, red spots, milia, sebaceous hyperplasia, seborrheic keratosis and other benign skin lesions. Diathermy gives blemish free, smooth skin, instantaneously. It is a bloodless procedure and does not require any stitches. It is used primarily for cosmetic treatment of the face, neck, shoulder, chest and back. These are the areas of the body which get exposed to the harmful effects of the sun and the environment and more often develop skin problems.

Diathermy involves the use of a high energy current via a needle. This combined with the water content in the treatment area will produce heat which destroys the lesion. The area to be treated is made numb by applying local anaesthetic or in some cases ice packs or via our cryo unit and then a fine, gold or silver, hair-thin needle is introduced in the lesion to pass the current. The heat produced destroys the tissue of the lesion and the lesion disappears instantaneously. After the procedure mild swelling and redness may result. This will resolve in few hours. The superficial sore is left and allowed to heal with a topical medical grade silicone gel applied (wound healing dressing).
