Everything you need to know about Skin Tag removal treatment

Nearly all of us have, or will develop, these unsightly little skin blemishes at some point in our lives. They’re most commonly seen in the underarm, between the legs, under the breast, around the neck and on the eye lids and can appear on both men and women.

What are skin tags and why do they occur?

Skin tags are very common, harmless, soft skin growths. Some people are simply just prone to forming skin tags - one person may have anywhere from 1 to 100 skin tags on their body. They are most commonly seen in areas where there is friction with the skin, such as under the arms or around the neck where necklaces or shirt collars may rub. I have also removed several from the eye lids and around the breasts very successfully.

Is it safe to remove skin tags?

Skin tags are completely benign and serve no purpose to you at all. Removing them is not a problem and also very quick and easy!

How can skin tags be removed?

We offer 2 treatments here at MediZen.
The most popular being ACP as it only takes a few minutes to do and in most cases is a one off treatment.
Advanced Electrolysis is a versatile method of treating a variety of skin blemishes, from skin tags and age spots, to facial thread veins, moles, warts and milia, as well as vascular conditions. There are over 21 different types of blemishes that can be safely and effectively treated using Advanced Electrolysis.
ACP is an advanced form of electrolysis where the hand piece is pressed against the ‘neck’ of the tag causing it to be cauterised off through a very small current of energy which is passed into this part of the skin. This ‘dries up’ the vessels that feed into the area of concern, leading to a visible reduction in the appearance of the blemish.
A tiny scab can occasionally be left behind, however this will usually fall off in a few days.
The method is becoming ever-popular with both men and women, as results can often be seen immediately. In time, the treatment leaves behind smooth, clear skin.
How long will it take to heal?
Depending on how big the tag is and where it is on the body depends on healing time. Most of the time you won’t even notice them healing, but occasionally if it is a larger tag then this can take up to a week to heal. Occasionally dressing them with a piece of gauze or plaster stops the tags from catching and slowing down healing time, so this may be recommended by your practitioner.

Will my skin tag return?

No, the skin tag that we remove will not return. However you may get new ones which form in the future.

What is the average cost?

With ACP we price it on time so anything up to 15 minutes is £50 or anything between 15-30 minutes is £75. Most commonly 1 session at £50 is required but very occasionally some people may require 2 treatment session.

    Skin tags are the most common skin care problem arising nowadays. It makes a negative impact on the skin, so it should be removed as soon as possible. It can be removed using laser treatment and once it is removed it can be controlled by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Laser treatment is nothing but a thin layer of numbing skin cream is applied over the affected area and then the skin tags are cauterized with the laser and an antibiotic cream is applied over the area and as a result of it the skin tag drop off.

    Skin tags are harmless and can be removed through various procedures like cutting, freezing, burning or laser excision. Visit a local dermatologist if you have skin tags because its is better to remove them by using secure methods.
