How I removed my Skin Tag

My Skin Tag Removal Story

Well all of that blog post about skin tag and lasers has lead up to this. I was invited by Dr Chen, to try out their new clinic branch at TTDI.

A few years ago I was given a chance to try Fractional CO2 laser at their UOA clinic. It was definitely an experience I will remember. It was done to remove some scars from past acne.
I was again invited to try a procedure with their new Premier Clinic which specialized in Aesthetic treatments.  They have a quite number of treatment choices ranging from lasers, botox, fillers and weight loss treatment. Basically almost everything a Holywood star does to keep them looking like they do, is available here.

I personally don’t have any issues even though I am on the plump size. However after skimming through their website, they actually provided a procedure to remove skin tags. I checked my own neck and yes, there were a few skin tags here and there.

The skin tag procedure actually uses the same CO2 laser machine that was used for my Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing. What a multipurpose machine this is.

I wonder if this is the same machine that was used on me in Wisma UOA

The reason I choose this treatment is because it’s something I need and the result in instantaneous. In addition the recovery time is every swift. Hell yeah, I am going to try this.

Bye bye pesky skin tags
When I tried to Google Map the clinic, it does not actually show itself on the map. If you managed to get the row of shoplots and the Pasar TTDI nearby, you are in the right path. Besides, by the time you drive there, the sign board is actually visible from the road side.
Parking is okay, I mean if you have an appointment, you will get a free parking in front of their clinic, if not, you can just park near the market for like 50 cent an hour.

The front entrance and reception

When you enter the clinic, it looks presentable, it feels like a regular hotel or spa lobby. However, if you just loathed being seen in an Aesthetic clinic, they do have a private waiting room inside, hidden from view, as you wait for your treatments.
No one has to know

Before getting my skin tag removed, I was prepped. They applied some numbing cream to the cleaned area of my neck and the cream is left to do its magic for about half an hour. They do have WIFI, so FB or Tweet while you wait.
My hair was long, so I got hair nets.

Before the procedure, they put on this eye goggles to protect your eyes from the lasers. Since there was numbing cream on, from a scale of 1 to 10 in the pain level, I would say the pain level is about a 2. You feel a bit of heat and some poking. However one thing I did not realized is the smoke from your skin tags vaporizing into this air. I actually laughed at this part because it smelled like ikan masin goring (fried salted fish).

The tool used to apply the lasers

In about 10 minutes the whole procedure was over and I was shown what was removed from my neck. Eeewww.
Eeeww indeed

The advice they gave me was that the area where the skin tag was removed will feel like an ulcer, so I should avoid the sun, chlorine and salt water in that area. So if you sweat, you totally wipe the area dry. That’s about it. No bleeding, not weird marks, it’s just gone. Fantastic
What skin tags? There is barely any marks of its existence

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants their Skin Tag removed
