Mole and Skin Tag Removal Options

Moles are skin cell clusters that may appear on any part of the body. They are generally black or brown in color and appear before the age of 20. Moles are generally harmless but if you find them getting in the way when you dress or shave, or if you don’t like the way they make you look, it is best to get the mole removed. 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides mole and skin tag removal procedures to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding communities.  

Mole Removal Procedure 

Mole removal involves a simple surgical procedure that your cosmetic surgeon can perform in their office or an outpatient department in a hospital. Doctors generally use one of the following methods to remove your mole: 

Surgical shave 

This involves numbing the area around the mole and then shaving off the mole using a tiny blade. A little of the underlying tissue is also removed. No stitches are necessary. Surgical shave works best for moles that are small in size 

Surgical excision 

In this method, after numbing the area, the doctor cuts out the entire mole using a circular blade or a scalpel. Some of the surrounding skin is also taken off, and then the wound is stitched to close the cut. 

Skin Tag Removal 

Skin tags are small bits of skin-colored tissue that are attached to your skin through a narrow stem. They generally occur in areas prone to friction such as in the armpits and the groin, under the breasts or on the eyelids and neck.  

If you find the skin tag uncomfortable or think it mars your appearance, you can have it removed at your surgeon’s office. Skin tag removal may be done in any of the following ways: 

  • Snipping: After numbing the area, the doctor cuts away the skin tag using special scissors. 
  • Burning: Using an electrode, the doctor makes an electric current flow through the skin tag which dries and then falls off. 
  • Freezing: Using super-cold liquid nitrogen, the surgeon freezes the skin tag which falls off after around two weeks of the treatment. This method called cryotherapy is effective, but it may irritate the surrounding skin. 

All of these procedures are not entirely pain-free and therefore, doctors use an anesthetic to numb the area before the procedure. If there is any bleeding, they apply medication to stop it and bandage the area. Marks or scars are rare after skin tag removal procedures. Skin tags generally don’t grow back after being removed; however, new ones may appear on other parts of the body.  

Removing Moles and Skin Tags at Home 

It isn’t safe to cut off skin tags at home with nail clippers. Avoid the use of paste or lotion for mole removal. These home remedies may lead to infection, bleeding or scarring of the area. The safe way to remove the moles and skin tags is to consult a doctor who can examine them, and choose the best mole and skin tag removal procedure.

Skin Resurfacing Treatments

As you age, it gets increasingly harder to avoid fine lines and blemishes on the face, with the skin becoming lackluster and dull. Chemical peels or microdermabrasion are proven solutions for your skin, but sometimes these procedures may not deliver the kind of cosmetic skin rejuvenation you are looking for.  

NanoLaserPeel and MicroLaserPeel are cutting-edge solutions to enhance your skin texture, tone and color. During your initial consultation, your cosmetic expert will determine your candidacy and recommend one of these treatments as needed. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides advanced skin resurfacing treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations. 

Customizable Treatments 

NanoLaserPeel and MicroLaserPeel are both highly customizable cosmetic laser peels. Depending on your skin condition and your personal goals, your provider will determine the precise treatment intensity you require. This will impact your results as well as the downtime involved.  

Even if you choose MicroLaserPeel of the highest strength, your downtime will be less than a week because the treatment essentially works on relatively shallow skin depths. The intensity of this laser peel can range between 10 and 30 microns.  

When this treatment is performed at a low intensity level of 4 to 10 microns, it is called a NanoLaserPeel. The downtime involved with this treatment will be about one to three days. Results with NanoLaserPeel will be nearly equivalent to four microdermabrasion treatments performed all at once.   

You can choose MicroLaserPeel and NanoLaserPeel as a series of intensive treatments or use them as your periodic skin maintenance program every quarter.  

How do these Treatments Work? 

Whether you choose NanoLaserPeel or the more intensive MicroLaserPeel treatment, the science behind it remains the same. In both these treatments, your provider will scan your affected areas with a laser beam to precisely vaporize (ablate) an ultra thin layer of skin from the top.  

That will help you get rid of old, damaged tissue. The old cells, which have been contributing to your aged, tired look, pigment irregularities and superficial skin blemishes, will be eliminated with the treatment.  

Light Skin Resurfacing with Laser Peels 

Both MicroLaserPeel and NanoLaserPeel are fast and effective treatments. These are completely safe because the skin resurfacing is only superficial in both cases. You may compare its intensity to about two to four times that of a microdermabrasion session.  

Your face and neck are the more commonly treated areas, but you may also consider these procedures to rejuvenate the skin in your chest and the back of your hands. A single treatment session will only last for about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area size.  

The following skin conditions are best resolved with these laser peels:  

  • Mild wrinkles and fine lines 
  • Certain types of acne scars 
  • Actinic Keratoses  
  • Brown spots and sun damage 
  • Pigmentation irregularities  

Results  

You will have noticeable improvement in your skin texture, tone and evenness of skin color in about a week after the procedure as your skin heals. With MicroLaserPeel, you may be able to achieve your desired outcomes with just one treatment. But with NanoLaserPeel, you may require multiple treatments for best results.

Radiesse Dermal Filler 

Nasolabial folds, commonly known as laugh lines, occur with age as the facial skin begins to sag. With the loss of natural collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, the underlying tissue disintegrates causing the skin to lose its youthful tone.  

This condition can be effectively corrected with Radiesse dermal filler injections, which will fill these conspicuous lines and restore a smoother, younger looking face. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides Radiesse facial filler to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations.  

How does Radiesse Filler Work? 

The active ingredient in Radiesse filler gel is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). This compound is present in the form of microspheres, which are suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Your treatment provider will directly inject this gel precisely into the targeted sites to fill out and eliminate laugh lines from your face.  

Radiesse dermal filler injection will combat the laugh lines in two ways. At first, the smooth gel will almost instantly plump the facial site (between the nose and mouth) when the injection is placed underneath the nasolabial crease or fold. That is the first phase of the Radiesse function, which creates near instant results.  

The second phase occurs over several weeks and months as the CaHA microspheres trigger the production of fresh collagen fibers in the injected areas. This will cause volumizing and firming up of your facial skin from within. New collagen will create more natural looking and sustainable results that could last for up to two years.  

This is where Radiesse filler differentiates itself from many other dermal fillers, which only perform the filling function and thus produce relatively less sustainable results. In case of Radiesse, new collagen formation occurs, which will continue to work even after the gel and the microspheres have been absorbed in your skin.  

Facial Areas that are Rejuvenated with Radiesse  

Radiesse is a powerful volumizing filler which will work well on deeper wrinkles and lines, such as laugh lines. It can also be used for a few other facial anti-aging purposes very effectively. These include:  

Laugh Lines  

These are the lines or nasolabial folds that run from your nose down to far corners of your mouth. Loss of skin elasticity and volume that comes with aging leads to laugh lines. Radiesse is a proven FDA approved dermal filler injection to treat this condition.  

Marionette Lines  

The facial lines run vertically downward from the corner of your mouth, and can create an effect of a dull, tired or sad look, even though you may actually be cheerful. Radiesse will successfully eliminate these unwanted facial lines.  

Oral Commissures  

Oral commissures are the corners of your mouth, which can turn downward due to the effects of aging. This condition can occur as your face loses volume, and it can make you appear angry or frowning. Choose Radiesse filler gel to reduce or remove these conspicuous aging signs.  

Pre-jowl areas on either side of your chin can become hollow if other parts of your lower face are sagging. This condition can also cause visible wrinkles in your chin. Radiesse dermal filler can help you get rid of these undesirable effects.

Non-Surgical Facelift 

Plasma Pen is a unique non-surgical way to achieve a subtle facelift when you want to avoid facial plastic surgery. Plasma Pen will fight facial lines and wrinkles, volume loss due to collagen breakdown, and sagging facial skin.  

This innovative treatment will target the conspicuous aging signs on your face, while subtly lifting your sagging skin to restore a more youthful looking face. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides Plasma Pen to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations.  

Safe and Proven Treatment 

The Plasma Pen non-surgical facelift is a completely safe and clinically proven treatment. It utilizes an advanced skin lifting and rejuvenation device to tighten and lift your facial skin in a non-invasive manner.  

The FDA has approved Plasma Pen device, and it is also widely used in Europe and other countries around the world. In clinical terms, the Plasma Pen is designed to perform fibroblast therapy to stimulate collagen generation in your skin. 

How does it work? 

The trained Plasma Pen medical provider will use the device to trigger plasma fibro-blasts in the underlying facial tissue. The plasma will considerably lift, tighten, regenerate, and resurface the targeted areas of your facial skin.  

In technical terms, the Plasma Pen converts electrical energy into diatomic molecular nitrogen in gaseous form. The high precision device will transmit the energized gas to the surface of your skin from above (without making any direct contact with the skin).   

This will cause micro-trauma in the topmost skin layers (epidermis) while disrupting and heating the deeper skin structure at the same time through thermal conduction. This is called the process of fibroblasting. Fibroblasts are essentially connective tissue cells in your body that create new collagen fibers.  

The production of new collagen in the deeper facial tissue will continue to occur over several weeks and months. It will volumize your face and provide a gentle lift to the sagging areas of your facial skin. 

Areas Treated with Plasma Pen  

Plasma Pen device can work most effectively to improve the loose skin in your face and neck area, even though it can address various other body parts as wells. Your treatment provider will determine whether you are a candidate for non-surgical facelift with Plasma Pen. Specific areas that can be significantly enhanced with Plasma Pen treatment include:  

  • Smile lines and nasolabial folds – These are the lines run from the sides of your nose down to the corners of your mouth.  
  • Marionette lines – These are folds or creases that run straight from the corners of the mouth down to your chin.  
  • Accordion lines – When you are smiling, these are the lines that may occur outside of the mouth.  
  • Jaw line and jowl tightening  
  • Forehead lines  
  • Neck bands and turkey wattle neck  
  • Smoker’s lines  
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes  
  • Acne scars 
  • Lines, wrinkles and bags around upper and lower eyelids

Skin Resurfacing Treatment: Forever Young BBL | Vegas Medical SpaForever Young BBL is a safe and reliable broadband laser treatment designed to renew your skin appearance through skin resurfacing. You can expect to achieve a smoother texture and more youthful looking skin with this treatment. 

The treatment involves minimal downtime or discomfort, and results are more natural and sustainable compared to traditional light based therapies. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides Forever Young BBL skin resurfacing treatment to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations. 

Treatment Areas

Forever Young BBL treatment is ideal when you want to enhance your skin appearance in the face, neck, shoulders, chest and the back of your hands. Sun damage and harsh weather elements often affect these exposed areas, which you can improve with BBL treatment. 

Broadband lasers can specifically improve the following skin conditions: 

  • Rough or uneven skin texture 
  • Loose skin occurring due to loss of elasticity 
  • Freckles, age spots and other pigmented lesions 
  • Vascular lesions, rosacea, and redness 

How does Forever Young BBL Work?

Your treatment provider will focus the BBL laser device on the targeted sites in your skin to deliver controlled light energy. As the precise laser beams will heat the deeper skin layers, it will trigger collagen fibrils formation as well as cellular regeneration from within. 

If you are bothered by the appearance of brown spots, your provider will aim the Forever Young BBL device on the precise zones to allow the laser heat to penetrate the tissue and reach the unwanted pigmentation to break it down. Any pigment fragments remaining will peel or slough off within one to two weeks. 

Your skin may appear reddish because of conspicuous blood vessels in the upper skin layers. The broadband light energy will cause these vessles to close. The disintegrated vessel residue will get naturally absorbed in your body over a few weeks, resulting in smoother and brighter skin complexion. 

The innovative cooling features included in the Forever Young BBL device will help ensure that you experience minimal discomfort during the treatment session and the skin in the treated sites does not get overheated. 

Treatment Sessions  

Your Forever Young BBL treatment can be performed using only just a topical anesthetic in the affected sites.

Recovery 

Following your BBL therapy session, you may experience some redness in the treated site that feels like sunburn. If the treatment is more intensive, you may develop mild swelling, which will subside quickly. At first, the pigmentation may turn darker before it peels off within 10 to 15 days.

Skin Resurfacing Treatment

If you are worried about the early onset of aging signs, or have been struggling with facial skin imperfections for years, you require a safe and proven skin rejuvenation treatment that works best with your unique skin concerns and personal cosmetic goals.  

Laser Genesis is a time-tested laser treatment that can improve your fine lines and wrinkles on the face, even out your complexion, mitigate the effect of acne scars, narrow enlarged pores, and even resolve certain types of active acne. The cutting-edge Laser Genesis device from Cutera is an ideal solution for facial skin revitalization, which is safe and involves very little downtime.  

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides Laser Genesis treatment for skin toning and scar removal to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations. 

How does Laser Genesis Work? 

Your treatment provider will focus the Laser Genesis device on the targeted areas of the skin so that controlled heat energy from the laser beams penetrates into the deeper skin tissue.  

This will stimulate the skin’s self-repair mechanism and trigger the formation of new collagen fibers, while restoring an even skin tone and healthy skin texture. It will also smooth out acne scars and some other facial scars, if any. 

Laser Genesis is a non-ablative laser, which means that you will not have any significant wounds on your skin’s surface, while still receiving the best benefits of laser skin resurfacing. Laser heat will also destroy harmful bacteria under the top skin layers to help prevent any future acne outbreaks. 

The gradual and gentle laser treatment process will promote the cellular turnover rate, reduce enlarged pores, improve acne scarring, and even address more severe conditions such as rosacea. You may be able to achieve your cosmetic skin care goals in three to six treatment sessions, depending on your needs. Recovery time is almost negligible with this treatment.  

What Conditions can Laser Genesis Treat? 

While Laser Genesis is highly effective in improving acne scars and providing an even-looking skin tone, it also addresses a number of other skin imperfections. In fact, it can also work well in the neck and chest areas, apart from the face. Some of the common skin conditions which can be corrected with Laser Genesis include:  

  • Mild wrinkles and fine lines 
  • Small to medium acne scars and surgery scars 
  • Some types of active acne 
  • Irregular skin texture  
  • Enlarged pores 
  • Redness and rosacea 
  • Brown spots and age spots Angiomas 
  • Port Wine Stains 
  • Venous Lakes 
  • Spider Veins  

Treatment Experience  

As a non-ablative treatment, Laser Genesis is not going to cause you pain. However, you may experience a mild tingling sensation and warmth in the treatment areas. Some patients in fact find the treatment rather soothing.  

A single treatment session will be completed in about 30 minutes, but could be longer if multiple treatment areas are involved. You can expect to achieve optimal results in about four to six months after the treatment sessions have been completed.

Radiesse dermal filler cosmetic treatment can safely and efficiently reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines as well as add volume to depleted areas of the face. During the pre-op consultation, the dermatologist will offer the patient in-depth information on various aspects of the procedure. 

Some dermatologists may choose to showcase Radiesse dermal filler before and after images to new patients during this appointment. This enables the patient to develop reasonable expectations from the filler treatment.

Additionally, these photos make the consultation process more transparent. Upon understanding the potential results, the patent can make a more judicious decision. 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides Radiesse dermal filler injections to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding communities.

 

Visual Proof for Prospective Patients

The treatment provider can assist a new patient feel more confident and reassured about the filler injection procedure and its potential outcomes by displaying Radiesse before and after pictures. After viewing before and after pictures of previous patients, a new patient can understand the extent to which Radiesse can enhance their appearance. 

Patients usually derive comfort from the fact that if the treatment has successfully improved the appearance of previous patients, it can potentially help them achieve similar outcomes as well. Before and after images offer them physical evidence that creates trust and transparency between the patient and treatment provider. 

This is just one of the many reasons Dr. Richards is successful. He allows people to see his work from any where in the world. They could be protecting the rhinos in Africa or buying some donuts in a donut shop – as long as they have Internet access they can see these amazing images. 

 

A Picture is worth a Thousand Words

Radiesse dermal filler ‘before and after’ images can present the real story in a much more expressive manner than mere words can. While the provider will inform the patient verbally on every facet of the injection procedure in detail to help them develop reasonable expectations, but words can sometimes be confusing and open to interpretation. 

‘Before and after’ pictures, on the other hand, can deliver a compelling and strong visual impact. Pictures are not constricted by the barrier of language and showcase the real story. However, the dermatologist should make sure that these photos have not been edited or photoshopped in any manner as this can mislead the patient.  

The saying “A picture is worth more than a thousand words” certainly holds true in the case of Radiesse before and after images. 

 

Use of Social Media Forums to Create Awareness

Today, social media platforms enjoy near-universal appeal. Plastic surgeons can harness the immense power of these social platforms to present Radiesse before and after images to raise awareness about this innovative dermal filler procedure. 

Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and Facebook are popular imaging sharing sites. Disseminating pictures on these forums can significantly improve a treatment provider’s efforts to connect with and inform their target audiences.  

Radiesse dermal filler ‘before and after’ photos can play a vital role if they are used effectively on social media platforms to connect with potential patients. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV, and nearby areas for Radiesse dermal filler injectable treatment.

How long do Radiesse dermal fillers last? | Las Vegas | Bullhead CityDermal filler injectable procedures for the rejuvenation of facial skin, such as Radiesse, presently ranks as the second most popular non-surgical cosmetic dermatology treatments in the US after Botox. 

Radiesse is a robust dermal filler injectable treatment. It has received FDA-approval to add temporary fullness to depleted areas of the face and reduce the effects of aging on the skin. 

The main component of Radiesse is calcium hydroxylapatite. This element differentiates Radiesse from various other filler treatments and offers more sustainable outcomes with a single in-office treatment.

Besides offering long-lasting outcomes, Radiesse dermal filler injectable treatment creates natural-looking results by filling in deep creases and wrinkles in various areas of the face. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides facial filler injections to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding communities. 

 

Calcium Hydroxylapatite 

Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) refers to a synthetic but completely biocompatible ingredient that has been used safely and predictably by medical professionals for more than two decades. The Radiesse gel contains microspheres of 25 to 45 diameter CaHA microns that are suspended within it.

The provider will use small injections to deliver this gel beneath the skin. Radiesse offers facial enhancement by eliminating the appearance of moderate to severe facial creases and folds. Patients with facial volume loss because of disease or other reasons may also benefit from Radiesse.

Radiesse dermal tissue filler provides sustainable improvements in various facial sites to address problems such as nasolabial folds and glabellar lines. It also offers sub-dermal support to areas such as tear troughs, marionette lines, brows, nose, perioral area, chin, and lips. In addition, it can effectively soften the appearance of saucerized acne scars.

 

Longevity of Results

A single Radiesse dermal filler medical spa treatment provides anti-aging results to patients that can last for up to two years. Standard dermal filler injectable treatments comprising hyaluronic acid typically provide results that can last from six months to one year.

Radiesse, in comparison, offers outcomes that can sustain for a longer period as it contains CaHA microspheres. This enables the volume from the procedure to last for a prolonged duration. 

When Radiesse is injected as tiny microspheres, it creates a type of scaffolding that promotes the development of new tissue which is similar to the surrounding tissue. 

After the CaHA particles reach the deeper layers of the dermis, it encourages the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. Radiesse creates this new fibroblastic in-growth without calcification, which offers the patient sustainable and natural-looking outcomes.

New collagen production develops volume in the deep tissue layers within the treated areas. This offers patients the dual advantages of instant volumizing and production of new collagen over time, enabling Radiesse outcomes to last longer than standard dermal fillers. 

 

Touch-ups with Radiesse

Radiesse offers another benefit, which is that the remaining, unused contents of a gel syringe can be recapped and stored for use on the same patient within the next three months.
