Getting rid of spots and other skin imperfections

Getting rid of spots and other skin imperfections

Do you have unsightly brown or enlarged spots on your face or body?  Have you ever dreamed that you could get rid of them once and for all?  Whether you suffer from pigmented lesions from too much sun damage or raised skin tags that have accumulated over the years, there’s a better and more cost effective way to correct these imperfections.

Inkfree, MD can safely and effectively remove these spots through a variety of treatment options.  Laser sun spot removal is generally a safe and well-tolerated procedure when done correctly by properly trained professionals. Before undergoing the procedure, it first needs to be determined whether the spots on the skin are in fact pigmented lesions or benign or non-benign growths. If they are determined to be sun-induced lentigines (freckles, sun spots, liver spots) which are mostly extra pigment deposition due to sun damage, then these lesions should respond well to laser treatment. Inkfree, MD applies a q-switched laser to the surface of the skin that targets the pigment in the skin.  The laser light is focused […]

Does Tag Away really work for skin tag removal?

Does Tag Away really work for skin tag removal?

Tag Away is a new, as-seen-on-TV, product that purports to remove all shapes and sizes of skin tags. Skin tags, medically known as acrochordon, are benign fleshy growths that form in areas where the skin forms creases, such as the neck, armpit, and groin. They may also occur on the face, usually on the eyelids. It is believed that skin tags occur from skin rubbing up against skin, since they are so often found in skin creases and folds. Sometimes skin tags rub off and fall off on their own.

Tag Away is supposed to work by applying the solution to the skin tag daily until it dries out the tag. One of the main active ingredients in Tag Away is the essential oil of the Thuja occidental tree, which grows naturally in wet forests. During the 19th century, Thuja was used as an ointment for the treatment of warts, ringworm and thrush. Despite it being rich in vitamin C, organizations such as the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database (NMCD) have since found there is […]

How does skin tag removal work?

Skin tags, medically known as acrochordon, are benign fleshy growths that form in areas where the skin forms creases, such as the neck, armpit, and groin. They may also occur on the face, usually on the eyelids. It is believed that skin tags occur from skin rubbing up against skin, since they are so often found in skin creases and folds.

Skin tags can be cut off with a scalpel or medical shears. They can be burned off with a medical cautery device or they can be frozen with liquid nitrogen, in which case the skin tag then falls off. In all three instances, the idea is to stop the blood flow to the skin tag. However, most of these methods can involve some blood loss and are relatively painful.

At Inkfree, MD we use a method known as electodessication. A pin sized electrode is applied to the stalk of the skin tag and an electric current is passed through. This current will cut off the blood supply and the tag with gradually fall off over the course of a week. Larger tags may […]

Baby Foot – Exfoliant Foot Peel now available

Are you tired of going to get pedicures to smooth out the rough edges of your feet? Have you been using pumice stones and foot files for years with little effect on rough dry skin? If so, then it’s time to try Baby Foot, a unique exfoliant foot peel. Baby Foot is a unique blend of 17 fruit acids which gently but very effectively remove dead layers of skin. In addition to improving the texture and appearance of problem areas like dry, cracked heels – the peel can also get improve conditions such as poor circulation and athletes’ foot.

Frequent use of foot files and razors to “remove” the dead skin from your feet actually can make them worse. All the extra filing creates friction which in turn creates more dead skin which builds into layers called desmosomes. The fruit acid penetrates into the layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the desmosomes which hold the layers together.

The peel is easily applied at home. You simply put on the provided plastic booties, leave on for one hour and then wash the peel […]
