Does Skin Tag Removal Hurt?
Your treatment will involve applying a local anaesthetic cream, or injecting a local anaesthetic to the skin tag area before removal, making treatment relatively painless. After treatment the skin left behind may be tender for a few days and will need to be covered. It is also best to use a strong sunscreen on the area.
Is Skin Tag Removal Safe?
Skin tag removal at sk:n is completely safe and is only carried out by medical doctors in clinical environments. We work to strict protocols exceeding all regulatory and clinical requirements and have access to some of the UK’s leading doctors and dermatologists.
Where On My Body Can I Have Skin Tag Removal Treatment?
You can have a skin tag removed from anywhere on your body.
Can I Have My Skin Tag Removed Just Because I Don’T Like The Look Of It?
Unless your doctor feels there is a medical reason not to remove your skin tag, we are happy to remove your skin tag for cosmetic reasons. We remove skin tags for a lot of clients who cannot receive the treatment on the NHS.
What Results Will I See?
All of our acne scarring treatments will visibly reduce acne scars depending on their type and severity. Laser resurfacing treatments can show results after just one treatment, whereas a course of skin peels and micro-needling may be needed.
What Are Skin Tags?
Skin tags are small, brown or flesh-coloured growths that protrude from the surface of the skin. They vary in size from a few millimetres up to around five centimetres. They are made up of loose collagen fibres and blood vessels surrounded by skin. Collagen is a normal type of protein found throughout the body. Common in both men and women, around one in four people will develop a tag at some point in their lives.
How Do You Get Skin Tags?
Often mistaken for warts, they can appear anywhere on the body, but are typically found in areas where skin repeatedly rubs against itself, such as armpits, groin, neck and eyelids. Skin tags present no medical threat and don’t usually cause pain or discomfort. However, they can make people feel self-conscious and can hurt if caught on clothing. They can also cause issues for men when shaving.
How Will I Feel During Skin Tag Removal?
Surgical treatments are conducted under local anaesthetic, so the treatment will be painless. Laser treatment may cause very slight discomfort, but is usually very mild.
Will The Skin Tag Grow Back?
The treatment will permanently remove the skin tag. However, this will not stop skin tags growing back in other areas in the future.
What Happens After Skin Tag Removal?
There will be a small white scar where the skin tag has been removed. Other than that, complications are rare and you can go home as soon as your anaesthetic wears off.
