About Skin Tag Removal

How does the Skin tag Removal work?

  • Our treatments are suitable for all skin tag sizes anywhere on the body.
  • We can treat all skin types.

We use two methods to remove skin tags:

Advanced Electrolysis
  • This procedure involves burning the skin tag off using a needle with an electrical current.
  • The heat energy is applied to the stalk or neck of the skin tag, this starves the skin tag of its nourishment (blood supply).
  • They come off at the time of treatment and usually do not require any further treatment.
  • This is the preferred method of treatment as results are immediate and scarring is minimal.
Cryotherapy
  • This is used for very large skin tags.
  • The procedure involves using a CryoPen which emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, and is delivered directly to the treated area and not to the healthy surrounding tissue.
  • The tissue is destroyed by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell.
  • The lesion may blister within a day following treatment, this will then crust (scab) and after about 10 to 14 days the scab will fall off, the skin will then be healed.

Who is suitable for the treatment?

  • Anyone who suffers from skin tags whether it’s just the one or multiple skin tags regardless of size anywhere on the body including the sensitive eyelids.

Who is not suitable for the treatment?

The following are contraindications and treatment can therefore not be carried out:

  • Hepatitis B (highly infectious, virus not easily destroyed)
  • Blood disorders (Haemophilia)
  • Heart conditions, especially when taking blood thinners such as warfarin.
  • High blood pressure (can only treat when controlled or lowered)
  • Skin diseases and allergies (fungus infections, broken skin, active eczema or psoriasis)
  • Diabetic (skin is slower to heal)
  • Very sensitive skin (sun burn)
  • Anti-coagulant drugs
  • Pregnancy (some disorders arise during pregnancy but can disappear after birth)
  • Keloid scarring (after injury there may be overgrowth of skin. Further keloids may develop after treatment).
  • Epilepsy (an epileptic fit could be brought on)
  • General ill health (this can affect skin healing time)

Consultation Procedure?

  • At your Free Consultation our practitioner will assess your lesions and check your suitability for the treatment.
  • If our Practitioner identifies any suspicious skin blemish they will recommend seeing a medical practitioner and will require a GP’s written consent prior to treatment.
  • Depending on the size of skin tags and area to be covered they will recommend you the cost and number of sessions required.

What steps are involved in the treatment?

  • The area to be treated is cleansed with an alcohol cleanser and any local anaesthetic cream removed.
  • Each individual skin tag is cauterised using an eclectic current or nitrogen gas, this process is repeated until all the skin tags have been treated.
  • Witch hazel is applied to the treated skin tags to prevent post treatment infection.
  • The area is cooled and aloe vera gel applied to prevent any post burning sensation.

How does the treatment feel?

  • There will be a mild sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the skin tag is cauterised.
  • There might be residual stinging for a few minutes after treatment.
  • The area can be slightly itchy for about 10 minutes after the procedure.
  • To alleviate any discomfort we use a local anaesthetic so the treatment should be pain free or very minimal pain in most cases.
  • Most of our clients tolerate the treatment very well.

How many treatments are required?

  • A single session is enough to remove skin tags permanently. We offer a 20-minute session so multiple skin tags can be removed in one sitting. If you have skin tags on only the cheekbones area 1 session may be sufficient.
  • However, a full face of skin tags can take more than one session.
  • Session intervals will be two weeks to ensure that the areas treated have healed well.
  • You will be given an approximate number of sessions required at your Consultation.

Are there any possible side effects/Downtime?

  • The area will look like mosquito bites after treatment. Scabs will form and will be noticeable.
  • It can take up to 2 weeks for these scabs to fall off.
  • There will also be redness which will take a few days to completely reside.
  • Cryotherapy can cause blisters which will heal in 14 days.
  • There is a risk of minimal scarring, not as much as the initial skin tag.
  • You will be advised to use certain after care products to aid quicker skin healing.
  • Please not that you can use mineral make up or Blemish Balm to conceal the skin whilst healing.

Does the removal of skin tag cause more skin tags?

  • No there is no evidence to suggest that removing one skin tag can cause more to grow, if you have skin tags we advice you get them treated.

Is there any Aftercare/Homecare?

  • The aftercare procedure will be discussed at your consultation. Following the aftercare advice is crucial to avoid damage to the area and allow the skin to heal without complications.
  • The healing process starts immediately, but the time of complete healing varies. Normally takes a minimum of 2-3 weeks for complete healing of the skin.
  • On completion of the treatment the area should be kept cool, a cold compress can be applied. Witch hazel should be applied to avoid infection. The areas should be left alone to ensure the natural healing of the skin. If the area feels dry or tender some cortisone cream can be applied.
  • Scabs will form over the next 48 hours and should be left dry until they drop off on their own (over the next 10 days). You must never pick the scabs or scarring will result.
  • You will be given an after care advice sheet to take home with you after completion of your treatment.
