Skin Tag Removal with quick, effective and precise treatment
We usually treat skin tags (also known as acrochordon) using laser treatment because it is quick, effective and precise.
We will apply a topical anaesthetic 30 minutes prior to your treatment to minimise any stinging sensation you may experience. Within minutes the treatment will be complete and you can resume your normal daily activities! We also offer other packages for troubled skin, including anti-ageing packages and acne packages.
Alternatively, we can also treat your skin tag with a CryoPen which uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin tag. After a few days the treated area will become necrotic and flake or fall off. It will heal completely within two to four weeks.
Skin tag removal using laser treatments cost from £50. Skin tag removal using CryoPen costs from £75. Your specialist will discuss with you the best course of treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are skin tags?
Skin tags are harmless flaps of skin which usually grow to around 6mm in length. They are thought to be caused by skin rubbing against skin so tend to appear where the skin creases in the neck, armpits and groin.
How does the laser treatment work?
The laser emits an intense beam of light which passes safely through the upper skin layers to kill the lesion.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments you require will depend on the size and type of skin lesion. Your practitioner will be able to advise you on the duration of your treatment at your initial consultation. Please note that a patch test costing £25 will be required.
Does laser treatment hurt?
Most patients tolerate the treatment very well. It can cause a slight stinging sensation or pinch, much like an elastic band snapping your skin.
Is the laser treatment safe?
This process is completely harmless, totally safe and medically approved. The treatment will be carried out by one of our specially trained, fully qualified and highly experienced Cosmetic Nurses and Aesthetic Practitioners. There will be no long term side effects.
How does the CryoPen work?
Our specialists are trained to use the CryoPen which accurately pinpoints the area you wish to treat. A micro-fine jet of cryogen or liquid nitrogen is directed towards the skin tag or lesion.
When will I see results?
Your skin tag will begin to fall off after a few days and will be completely healed after to two to four weeks.
Does it hurt?
You will experience only very minor discomfort with the CryoPen treatment.
