Removing Milia seeds/Mole/wart/skin tag/keloid in Singapore.
Skin growths such as moles, skin tags, milia seeds, warts and Keloids can all be removed safely and effectively to achieve a smoother skin complexion.
Milia seeds are small cysts on the skin filled with protein known as keratin. When keratin gets trapped beneath your skin’s surface, they usually appear spontaneously and the cause is not known. Milia seeds are so common that they affect men and women of any age, and typically appear around the eye area, nose, and cheeks. You can also get Milia seeds on skin that has been damaged by injuries such as blisters, burns, sun damage or long term use of steroid cream. The appearance of Milia can be disturbing for some people. They may also interfere with makeup and skin care product applications.
Common moles, or melanocytic naevi, are natural growths on the skin that typically appear on the facial areas or anywhere on the body. They are usually brown or black in colour and they come in various sizes from big to small as well as appear protruding or flat. Moles form when melanocytes cluster together in the skin, instead of being spread out. Skin moles can be a serious aesthetic concern that can affect a person’s sense of confidence. If you don’t like the look of your mole or there is a change in the shape, size, colour and texture, we can check with our doctor and see if they can be removed.
Warts and verrucas are small, rough lumps or growths on your skin caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). They warts are contagious and can spread from person to person by direct skin contact or by contact with floors or surfaces contaminated with the virus. They’re most common on your hands, knees and feet. You’re more likely to develop warts if you have a weakened immune system. There are 4 types of warts:
Common wart: These are firm, round, raised growths with a rough surface.
Verruca (also known as plantar warts): These warts grow on the soles of the feet.
Plane warts: These grow on the face, back of the hands, or legs, are round, smooth, and slightly raised, and have a flat top. They may be slightly brown, greyish-yellow, or skin-coloured.
Genital warts: Caused by different types of HPV from the other types of wart. They are a sexually transmitted infection (STI), which means they’re spread by sexual contact.
Skin tags are the growth that hangs off the surface of the skin and is common in both men and women.
Skin tags can appear in different sizes ranging from 1mm to 5cm and are usually skin-coloured to look at and soft to touch. Moles, warts and other lesions can sometimes also form Skin Tags. Skin tags are fairly frequent beyond the age of 40, and they can form anywhere on the body. They are often found on the neck, in armpits, eyelids, under the folds of the buttocks, under breasts, the folds of the skin and where skin scrapes against clothes. However, you may consider having skin tags removed if they’re affecting your self esteem, or if they snag on clothing or jewellery and bleed.
Keloid is the growth or benign tumour of scar tissue. Keloid scars are an abnormal type of scar that forms as a result of injury. It’s commonly found after wound infection, hereditary, and in skin type 4-6 (darker skin). A keloid scar occurs secondary to a defective wound that commonly presents as lumps or nodules, heals larger than the original wound. It can grow and change in texture, making it more noticeable, firm or hard to touch and it could feel pain or itch and, in some cases, be a case for aesthetic treatment.

There may be some discomfort in the area of treatment. Doctor will suggest if the numbing is required on that area and your discomfort will be minimal to none.
After your procedure, it is not necessary to take leave from work. Downtime is minimal to none in most cases. Larger moles, skin tags or warts may need up to 2 weeks to 4 weeks for wound healing. Doctor will suggest it upon your visitation.
Normally after the treatment, the blemish will simply fake away from the skin. A few days after the treatment, the skin underneath may look slightly pink and fresh. Skin will fully heal as per the doctor’s suggestion of period of time. Leave the skin until it looks clearer, healthier and no more blemish. After full recovery, the result on your skin is permanent.
Depending on size, the procedure takes between 10 to 15 minutes per mole / bump with immediate results. Healing may take between 1 to 3 weeks depending on the size of the mole / bump removed.
