Often known as “barnacles of old age,” these benign lesions occur from excessive growth of the top layer of skin cells. They show up on the body, under the breasts, shoulders, and in places where they get rubbed by clothing. They can range from light tan to black in colour, and look like they have been pasted on your skin. Electrocautery or hot iron tip can be used to melt these right off. Carbon dioxide or an Erbium Laser is very useful at giving a clean reduction without any scarring.
