Most of our clients will agree – skin tags are very annoying!
They are small, benign ‘droplets’ of skin that can be found in areas such as the neck, underarms, groin etc. In fact anywhere where there is friction.
It is a straight forward procedure where we cauterise the skin tags using heat. The results are instant.
After the treatment, the area should be left alone to ensure the natural healing of the skin. If the area feels dry or tender, a small amount of antiseptic cream maybe applied morning and night.
The scabs will form over the next 48 hours and should be left dry until they drop off on their own. This usually takes around 8-10 days.
Dressings aren’t necessary for skin tags. If the area is likely to rub, a plaster may be applied over it (just make sure to remove the plaster at night for air circulation to allow the scab to form)
Healing is usually complete within a few days with a tiny scar which fades completely over time, depending on the size and amount of skin tags removed.
Well, you will feel some heat sensation but it’s so quick that, honestly, you wouldn’t mind it.
Usually only one treatment is required for the blemish that is treated.
Well, it depends on the size of the tag and the number of areas to be treated.
It is not that often that someone needs 30 min of treatment – 15 min is normally sufficient to remove all present skin tags.
