Skin Tag and Milia Treatment in NYC
Say goodbye to unwanted skin tags and visible veins without having to devote any time away from your busy schedule. A hyfrecator is a electrosurgery treatment that Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Claudia Kim perform to improve the appearance of various skin imperfections to provide you with a clearer, healthier appearance.
What does a hyfrecator do?
A hyfrectaor is used for the effective removal of skin tags, milia, cherry angiomas, and other red spots or patches found on the skin. These common skin flaws can dramatically age a person and are difficult to cover up with makeup. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Claudia Kim see this simple treatment as a way for men and women to maintain the youthful appearance they desire without missing any work or looking as though they have had a lot of work done.
How is it performed?
Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Kim perform the procedure as a quick, in-office treatment. During your procedure, your New York cosmetic surgeon will place the end of the device against your skin’s surface, transferring energy below the skin. This treatment then works to dramatically improve the appearance of the treated skin without making any incisions or leaving any scars.
When can I schedule my Manhattan treatment at New Look New Life?
You will have an initial consultation with Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Claudia Kim to discuss your treatment and its many benefits. Once you feel comfortable moving forward, the two of you can schedule your procedure at a date that works well with your daily routine.
Will I see results after one session?
Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Kim can instantly remove skin tags, but certain milia or blemishes may take three to four weeks to fully disappear (*). A series of multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
Do I need to do anything before my procedure?
No major preparation is needed prior to your procedure. This is a non-surgical and does not require any use of general or local anesthesia. However, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini and Dr. Kim can use a topical anesthetic to help ease any minor discomfort you may experience during treatment.
How long is each session?
Your session should take no longer than 10 to 15 minutes—perfect for squeezing into your lunch break. For larger areas the treatment can take 30 to 45 minutes.
Does it require a long recovery period?
It is important to avoid unnecessary sun exposure for one to two weeks after your Hyfrecator treatment to allow your skin to heal (*). Sunscreen must be worn whenever you need to head outdoors. Some minor scabbing is common, but should pass within the first 10 to 14 days.
Does this procedure pose any health risks?
This treatment does not penetrate the skin or introduce any chemicals. It must be performed by an expert to prevent the risk of burns.
Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call our office immediately.

How much does a Hyfrecator cost?
