Skin tag and mole removal in Toronto
At VS MedSpa, we use the latest in Radio Frequency machines for skin tag removal and mole removal without stitches and bleeding!
Radio Frequency (RF) technology is a minimally-invasive way to remove moles, warts, skin tags and other so called “lumps and bumps”. RF involves the passage of radio waves into the skin to perform the removal or reshaping of a lesion. Different types of electrodes are used depending on the type of lesion, (e.g. fine needle, wire loop, scalpel blade etc.) RF treatment can cut and coagulate simultaneously without any need for applying pressure. This procedure has gained importance since it is easy to perform. Bleeding is minimal and so is downtime. Radio Frequency is practically free of side effects and complications.
If you have any questions about skin tag or mole removal, speak with one of our friendly booking consultants by calling (647) 352-7373 and they can answer any questions you might have.

- WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED
What are skin tags?
Skin tags are small, soft, flesh-colored benign skin growths that hang off the skin. They are usually found on the neck, armpit, or under the breasts. Skin tags are formed when loose collagen fibres and blood vessels surrounded by skin. Collagen is a type of protein found throughout the body. Skin tags tend to grow in the skin folds, where the skin rubs against itself, such as on the neck, armpits or groin. This is why they tend to affect overweight people who have excess folds of skin and skin chafing. Skin tags are harmless and don’t usually cause pain or discomfort. However, you may consider having skin tag removal if skin tags are affecting your self-esteem, or if they snag on clothing or jewellery and bleed.

How does Radio Frequency (RF) work?
RF works on the principle of using tissue as resistance against high-frequency radio waves delivered at low temperatures. When a high-frequency wave passes through, the tissue resists its passage, thereby creating heat. This heat increases the inner pressure within the mass of tissue by taking the intracellular water to way above boiling point. The increased pressure makes cell walls break, creating the cutting effect.
As the water in the intracellular tissue vaporises, the heat spreads, coagulating tissue proteins, which in turn brings about haemostasis or stoppage of blood flow, without actually having to burn the tissue as is generally required during such surgery. A variety of electrodes are used depending on the type of lesion, e.g. fine needle, wire loop or scalpel blade, among others.
How long does Radio Frequency (RF) treatment take to heal?
Radiofrequency treatment for moles and skin tags will leave a small graze, about the same size as the destroyed raised spot that has just been removed.
This graze should be kept covered and sealed until it has completely healed over with normal skin for optimal cosmetic results. The idea here is that we do not allow the area to dry out and scab, as this might result in a less favourable cosmetic outcome. Typically, a lesion takes around one week to heal on the face, and up to two weeks elsewhere.
Usually the cosmetic results are excellent, and it is often impossible to tell where the original site was. However, it is possible, though rare, for a treated area to heal with a depression or slightly paler or darker than the surrounding skin. Contact us today for complimentary consultation.

“Great first treatment experience. Victoria is very light handed and meticulous. Highly recommended! Concerns: dark spots – aging skin- rough skin texture. Skin tags removed – first stage. It was not bad – good pain! With Victoria’s light touch – it was a pleasant experience and good result. I can’t wait for the next treatment.”
