Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags removal

It is a common and benign skin growth, derived from skin cells and composed of loose fibrous tissue. Skin tags may present either single or multiple and they also may be skin colour or hyper-pigmented. They are not directly related to any health condition although they can be hereditary. Most frequently found on the areas of friction, neck, underarms, groins, around the bra area, etc. They are increasingly common as we get older and affects almost half of the population.


Skin tag removal with Diathermy (Non Surgical)

Diathermy is one of the easiest ways to remove unwanted skin tags. Depending on the size and the area of skin tag it can take from a second to a few minutes!

It can be used on the face on the body and even in between the eyelashes! With the current of energy, we cauterise skin tags until it dries up, or if it’s big enough we can “cut” it off from the base of the skin tag.

After treatment, the area will develop a small scabby and can be hot and itchy, but the scab and ant remaining dead tissue skin will fall off within a week. You should avoid picking and rubbing the area it’s important for the healing process and new skin underneath.

We use Sterex Diathermy, this is a leading safe British company supplying over 30 countries. We are Sterex trained and in the clinic, we use only Sterex machines and products to guarantee the best outcomes of the procedure.

Surgical skin tag removal

Occasionally skin tags can be significant in number or larger than critical to remove with diathermy alone, on these occasion we may remove there surgically. This would require an injection of local anaesthetic
