Skin Growth Irregularities Chart:
Skin growths are accumulations of various types of cells that look different than the surrounding skin. They may be raised or flat and range in color from dark brown or black to flesh-colored to red. Skin growths may be present at birth or develop later.
SKIN TAGS are soft, small, harmless, flesh-colored or slightly darker skin growths that are most commonly found on the neck, the armpits, or the trunk. They may appear elsewhere on the body, as well. The cause is unknown, but they commonly appear after middle age. They begin as small fleshy brown spots and may grow on a small stalk or stem. Skin tags never turn into skin cancer.
The tendency to develop skin tags appear to be inherited (genetic). Some women develop skin tags during pregnancy. Usually, skin tags cause no trouble, but they may be unattractive, and clothing or nearby skin may rub and irritate them so that they bleed or hurt. A skin tag can be removed if it becomes irritated, bleeds, or causes embarrassment.
Dermatofibromas are small red-to-brown bumps (nodules) that result from an accumulation of collagen, which is a protein made by the cells (fibroblasts) that populate the soft tissue under the skin.
Dermatofibromas are common and usually appear as single firm bumps, often on the legs, particularly in women. Some people develop many dermatofibromas. Causes include trauma, insect bites, and cuts caused by shaving. They are harmless and usually do not cause any symptoms, except for occasional itching. Usually, dermatofibromas are not treated unless they become bothersome or enlarge.
Seborrheic keratoses are flesh-colored, brown, or black growths that can appear anywhere on the skin.
These harmless growths are very common in middle-aged and older people. Some people have a hundred or more. Although these growths can appear anywhere, they most often appear on the torso and the temples.
Seborrheic Keratoses are round or oval and vary in size from less than ¼ inch to several inches. They appear to be stuck on the skin and often have a waxy or scaly surface. These growths develop slowly. They are not cancerous and do not become so. Dark brown keratoses may sometimes be mistaken for atypical mole or melanomas.
Treatment is not needed unless the keratoses become irritated or itchy or are cosmetically undesirable.
CHERRY ANGIOMAS (RUBY SPOTS) are harmless clusters of dilated tiny blood vessels (capillaries) that become more common after age 30. The cause is unknown.
Bright, cherry red, smooth spots appear most often on the trunk and upper legs but may also be found on the face, neck, scalp, and arms.
The size of the spots may vary from pinhead size to about 0.64 cm (0.25 in.) in diameter.
Although they are painless and harmless, cherry angiomas may bleed profusely if injured (until pressure is applied to stop the bleeding).
Cherry angiomas do not generally require any treatment but they can be removed by different methods if their appearance causes embarrassment or distress.
FLAT HYPERPIGMENTATION is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin.
Hyperpigmentation can affect the skin color of people of any race.
Age or “liver” spots are a common form of hyperpigmentation. They occur due to sun damage, and are referred to by doctors as solar lentigines. These small, darkened patches are usually found on the hands and face or other areas frequently exposed to the sun.
Changes in skin color can result from outside causes. For example, skin diseases such as acne may leave dark spots after the condition clears.
Freckles are small brown spots that can appear anywhere on the body, but are most common on the face and arms. Freckles are an inherited characteristic. Freckles, age spots, and other darkened skin patches can become darker or more pronounced when skin is exposed to the sun. This happens because melanin absorbs the energy of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays in order to protect he skin from overexposure. The usual result of this process is skin tanning, which tends to darken areas that are already hyperpigmented.
ELECTRO EPILATION hair follicle is a part of the skin that grows hair by cramping old cells tightly. Attached to the follicle is a sebaceous gland, a tiny sebum-producing gland found everywhere except on the palms, lips and soles of the feet. The thicker the density of the hair, the more the number of sebaceous glands that are found.
Also attached to the follicle is a tiny bundle of muscle fiber called the arrector pili that is responsible for causing the follicle lissis to become more perpendicular to the surface of the skin, and causing the follicle to protrude slightly above the surrounding skin (piloerection) and a pore encased with skin oil. This process results in goose bumps (or goose flesh). Stem cells are located at the junction of the erector and the follicle, and are principally responsible for the ongoing hair production during a process known as the Anagen stage.
At the base of the follicle is a large structure that is called the papilla. The papilla is made up mainly of connective tissue and a capillary loop. Cell division in the papilla is either rare or non-existent.
CHOLESTEROL DEPOSIT or Xanthomas are fatty deposits that build up under the skin. Anyone can develop a cholesterol bump, but they are most common on the elderly and people with high blood cholesterol levels, according to the National Institutes of Health.
A xanthoma can develop anywhere on the body, but they are commonly found on the elbows, knees, hands, feet, joints, tendons and buttocks. When a cholesterol bump forms on an eyelid, it is called xanthelasma palpebra. This condition is not typically associated with high cholesterol levels.
DILATED CAPILLARIES They are thread veins are capillaries that may have ruptured. They can occur at any age and affect any skin type, not just dry and sensitive skins.
They occur most frequently on the cheeks, the bridge and sides of the nose, under the eyes and on the chin. They are caused by sun damage, alcohol, drinking very hot drinks such as tea or coffee, eating spicy food, high blood pressure, exposure to harsh weather conditions and steroid products applied on the skin
SEBACEOUS HYPERPLASIA is a disorder of the sebaceous glands in which they become enlarged producing yellow, shiny bumps on the face. These bumps are a natural response to the maternal hormones of pregnancy and usually resolve on their own within a few weeks after delivery.
Sebaceous glands are glands located within the skin, and are responsible for secreting an oily substance named sebum. They are commonly associated with hair follicles but they can be found in hairless regions of the skin as well. Their secretion lubricates the skin, protecting it from drying out or becoming irritated.
Sebaceous hyperplasia generally affects newborns as well as middle-aged to elderly adults. The symptoms of this condition are 1-5 mm papules on the skin, mainly on the forehead, nose and cheeks, and facial skin.
CLOGGED PORES there are many tiny pores on the skin, which are actually outlets of sebaceous glands, also known as oil glands. The highest number of oil glands are found on the face, chest and back. The face is the most exposed part of the body and it has to encounter many problems like pollution, dust, heat, etc. which result in clogged pores thus leading to the formation of acne.
Clogged pores are a common skin problem that give rise to acne and other undesirable skin conditions like milia, the benign keratin filled cysts which appear under the skin on the roof of the mouth. When dirt, sweat and oil get accumulated in these pores, they result in the clogging of pores and cause pimples. Clogged pores can appear on any part of the body, but are more prominent on the face. There are two types of clogged pores – blackheads and whiteheads. Blackheads are partially clogged pores that are usually filled with oils, makeup and dirt. Whiteheads are a severe type and are completely clogged. They are embedded deep in the skin and cause cysts and nodules leading to severe acne. The area around the nose and skin are abundant in oil glands. So, large number of clogged pores are concentrated in these areas, especially on the nose.
SPIDER NAEVI consists of a central arteriole with radiating thin-walled vessels. Compression of the central vessel produces blanching and temporarily obliterates the lesion. When released, the threadlike vessels quickly refill with blood from the central arteriole. The ascending central arteriole resembles a spider’s body, and the radiating fine vessels resemble multiple spider legs. The name stems from its physical appearance, which is characterized by a central red arteriole, or punctum, representing the body of the spider, surrounded by a radial pattern of thin-walled capillaries, resembling legs.
MILIA the common name for milia is milk bumps or oil seeds due to their appearance as they form on the skin. They look like small white bumps that resemble millet seeds.
Milia are dead skin cells trapped within the surface tissues of the nose, cheeks and chin or inside the mouth. It is not a form of acne, though the bumps may become inflamed and resemble acne. The condition is very common in infants but can also occur in adults. Another common name is Epstein’s pearls. There is no known way to prevent the occurrence of milia. In infants, cysts usually resolve on without any treatment. Adults may choose to have them removed for cosmetic appearance sake.

Pre Care Instructions
DO NOT WASH TREATED AREA FOR 24 HOURS keep lesion completely dry. Softening of the brand-new scab with water may cause it to come off pre-maturely: the result is that the skin will take longer time to heal. The scab forms to protect the fragile new skin cells. The body releases histamine to help trigger the cells which will assist the healing and create new healthy tissue.
DO NOT SCRATCH THE TREATED AREA During the healing process, the area may become itchy, the treated area will transition from its fresh state to its healing state. During this period, you will likely experience an itchy sensation, which is attributed to the development of new skin. Doing the healing stages collagen is being released to create new skin, the new skin may be sensitive which may lead to more itching sensations. Do not pick or itch the healing area. Scratching the treated area could result into an affection or damaged cells.
DO NOT APPLY ANY PRODUCTS ON THE TREATED AREA products that are not prescribed will cause irritation and effect the stages of healing which could result into infection. Only the prescribed products doing the healing phase can be used.
DO NOT USE sauna room, steam room, swimming, and jacuzzi, long shower or activities that cause excessive sweating until the scab falls off. Excessive wetness of the treated area could cause the protective scab to fall off prematurely, which will delay the healing process.
DO NOT USE ANY ACID OR EXFOLIATION PRODUCT four to eight weeks after the procedure.

Health & Recovery
The treated area will form an immediate protective scab, which can be from grey, light brown to dark brown or even black in color. Keep the treated area dry as possible. The scab should fall off naturally in average seven to fourteen days. Large skin growths may product two to three successive crusts and last up to three weeks. In an area of good blood supply and abundant subcutaneous tissue, healing will be rapid.
During the healing process, each skin type reacts differently based on the amount of pigment cells in the skin. The body’s natural healing and defense mechanism starts working immediately after the skin being treated with the Super Frecator 6800m device. After the scab falls off, the new skin appears to be very fresh and light pink in color. From the point on, the healing continues till the color blends into the original skin tone. There are different stages associated with this process based on natural response of the skin. The process involves color changes on the treated area which we call Post Inflammatory Pigment.
