The Effects of
Skin Imperfections

Skin tags are small, benign growths that often appear in areas of friction, like the neck, underarms, or groin. While harmless, they can be bothersome and affect your confidence. Moles, on the other hand, are clusters of pigmented cells varying in size and color, often appearing during childhood or early adulthood. While most moles are harmless, some can pose health risks if they change in size, shape, or color. Both skin tags and moles can negatively affect your appearance and self-esteem.

Signs of Skin Tags & Moles:

Skin Tags:

  • Small, soft, flesh-colored growths
  • Typically found in areas of skin folds or friction
  • May appear stalk-like or flat


  • Pigmented spots on the skin
  • Vary in size and color
  • Usually round or oval-shaped
  • Can have a smooth or raised surface

How PlasmaPen Removes Skin Tags & Moles

PlasmaPen is a cutting-edge medical device that utilizes plasma technology to generate a controlled, high-frequency electric current to ionize gasses in the air, creating a plasma arc. This arc, when applied to the skin’s surface, produces heat, which helps to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. PlasmaPen is highly precise and minimally invasive, making it an effective solution for various dermatological treatments, including the removal of skin tags and moles.

When the plasma arc comes into contact with the skin, it delivers a controlled burst of energy that causes the skin’s cells to vaporize, effectively removing the skin tags or moles. The heat generated by the plasma arc stimulates collagen production, promoting skin regeneration. The treated area gradually heals, leaving behind smoother, rejuvenated skin with minimal scarring. This technique ensures precision and safety in skin tag and mole removal.

Skin Tags & Moles FAQs

Is the PlasmaPen procedure painful?

While discomfort may be experienced during the procedure, topical anesthesia is usually applied to minimize pain. Patients often describe it as a mild stinging or heat sensation during treatment, which is generally well-tolerated.

How long does a skin tag or mole removal session take?

The duration of the procedure depends on the number and size of skin tags or moles being treated. Typically, a session can last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

What is the recovery time after skin tag and mole removal?

Recovery time varies from person to person but is generally minimal. Patients may experience some redness, swelling, and scabbing in the treated area, which usually subsides within a week. It is essential to follow post-treatment care instructions for optimal healing.

Can PlasmaPen remove all types of moles and skin tags?

Is PlasmaPen skin tag and mole removal permanent?

Yes, the removal is permanent. Once the moles or skin tags are removed, they do not grow back. However, new moles or skin tags may develop over time.

Are there any specific aftercare instructions following PlasmaPen treatment?
