About The Treatment

Why consider Skin Tag Removal?

  • They are unsightly and can have a devastating effect on self-confidence, especially on visible areas.
  • Are you left constantly worrying about your appearance, and having to cover areas such as the neck with a scarf?
  • They may also cause irritation catching on clothing or jewellery.
  • Cosmetic procedures such as removal of skin tags are no longer treated by doctors on the NHS.
  • We are able to treat skin tags safely and quickly with minimal downtime.
  • These skin tags can be instantly removed with our non-invasive treatment methods.

How our treatment works?

There are 2 options for the treatment of skin tag removal:

Advanced Electrolysis
  • The procedure consists of cauterising the skin tag using a tiny probe with an electric current.
  • This is a non-invasive procedure which will give you immediate results without leaving any permanent scarring.
  • Treating skin tags with Advanced Electrolysis is a good way of ensuring that tags will not reappear. Also less risk of scarring means it’s the best treatment option for the face.
Cryosurgery
  • Skin tags can also be eliminated using liquid nitrogen. The liquid nitrogen is cold, it freezes the skin tag, killing the cells within the skin tag and blocking the blood supply to the area causing it to eventually drop off.
  • You might develop soreness in the area for a couple of days after the treatment and you may develop a blister therefore cryosurgery is best suited for skin tags on the body that are too large to be treated by Advanced Electrolysis.

Can you remove skin tags yourself?

skin-tag

There are numerous off the shelf products and websites that are available on how to remove skin tags at home. If your skin tag is very small and there’s not many you may want to use a ‘do it yourself’ approach.

The options:

  • Over the counter solution: you need to apply the solution to the skin tag but must use apply regularly to see any difference. Please not that some of these products have a bad smell to them and most do not work.
  • Tie the skin tag using dental floss: tie it around the skin tag and pull on it little by little each day. After several days the blood supply will cut off and the skin tag should dry up entirely and fall off. Remember you will not be able to remove flat skin tags using this approach.

Step by step removal using thread or dental floss

Step 1: Clean the affected area with warm water, remove any products & make up thoroughly. Then wipe the skin over with a alcohol solution to prevent infection.

Step 2: Cut a piece of thread or dental floss – ensure it is long enough to tie around the skin tag with excess left over both ends to allow you to tie a knot.

Step 3: Pull the skin tag away from the skin with a tweezer then tie the thread or floss at the base or neck of the skin tag. You may need to wrap around more than once and tie a knot to ensure it does not slip off.

Step 4: The thread or floss should be left on until the blood supply has been completely cut off. The skin tag will change colour to reddish, purplish then black.

Step 5: Remove the thread or floss and the skin tag will fall off. If there’s no change after a week then it hasn’t worked.

Remember this will NOT work for flat skin tags on the Face.
