WHAT IS 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 removal results because a poorly removed tag can leave damaged skin behind.

Treatment is quick and easy and we offer a range of removal options.

SKIN TAG REMOVAL FAQS

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 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?

The treatment will completely remove your skin tag; however there will be a small white scar where the removal took place.

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 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.

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.

WHICH SKIN TAG REMOVAL TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Over-the-counter treatments for Skin Tags often lead to bleeding and scarring. The safest and most successful way of removing Skin Tags is to have it done by a specialist at sk:n. At your consultation, the Doctor will decide the best possible treatment depending on the size and position of your tag. Treatment is quick and simple with a range of options tailored around you.

EXCISION REMOVAL

Skin tags can be carefully cut away using a scalpel.

This treatment is carried out under a local anaesthetic and is therefore painless.

CRYOTHERAPY

Cryotherapy is where the skin tag is frozen by applying Cryogen to the area - a liquid gas that produces freezing temperatures.

The cold temperature kills the cells within the skin tag, blocking blood supply to the area and causing it to naturally fall off.
