What are Skin Tags?

Skin tags are small, brown or flesh-coloured growths that protrude from the surface of the skin, usually by a few millimetres. Often mistaken for warts, skin tags can appear anywhere on the body but are typically found in areas where skin repeatedly rubs against itself, such as the armpits, groin, eyelids and neck. Some skin tags grow over time and can very occasionally become as large as 5 centimetres.

Skin Tag Removal

If you wish to have your skin tags removed, your first step should be to arrange a consultation with a sk:n dermatologist as the size and location of the tag will help determine the best removal method.

Although over-the-counter treatments are available, it is better to seek professional advice if you want to be sure of achieving the best possible results. A poorly removed tag could leave damaged skin behind.
Treatment is quick and easy, with a wide range of removal options available; Cryosurgery in which the offending tag is frozen off using liquid nitrogen, Ligation in which the end of the tag is tied off, interrupting its blood supply and causing it to fall off.
Tags may also be burned off or simply cut away. These treatments are carried out under a local anaesthetic and are therefore painless. Laser treatment may also be available and usually causes only mild discomfort.
