WHAT CAUSES THESE CONDITIONS?
Skin Tag Removal
Also referred to as acrochordon, these are growths that are common on the groin, armpit, neck and face and tend to be smaller than a grain of rice. These are harmless, but individuals may opt to have them removed due to it being unsightly.
These are black or brown growths on the skin, and can appear anywhere on the body. Moles tend to develop during the first 30 years of a person’s life, and is very common. As you age, moles may change in appearance or become raised, or even develop hairs.
Often found on the face or chest, they are small, raised bumps on the skin and are commonly found in newborns but can affect individuals of any age. They may clear naturally, but persistent cases may require treatment.

It is a type of xanthoma, which is a deposit of fat under the skin that is yellowish in colour and are commonly found on or around the eyelids. Xanthelasmas consist of xanthoma cells that are in a foamy formation, with intracellular fat deposits mainly appearing on the upper reticular dermis. In simpler terms, xanthelasmas are a collection of selected types of fat derived from foods – mostly triglycerides and cholesterol.
Usually benign skin tumours that occur when the surface skin thickens in a rounded shape. These are often rough on the surface and of a different colour to the surrounding skin. Warts form as a result of viruses infecting the skin – this is common and the transmission of the virus depends on several factors, including injury location, virus strength and the immune system of the exposed individual.
Warts can be removed after one treatment
