* We may advise patients to have their skin lesions sent for histology/testing. We charge the lowest prices possible for histology as we realise patients often feel it is not required, but occasionally rare or suspicious things are detected early on in lesions that can look normal, which is why this is good practice. We make no financial gain from this service.
Histology/testing of the removed skin lesion is mandatory if the Doctor recommends it to ensure there are no abnormalities. The doctor will clarify this at the consultation and may refuse to do the treatment if the client refuses the histology recommendation or else ask the client to sign a document stating they went against the Doctors advice.
Any test results or correspondence will be sent to your email account via an encrypted system called Egress. Should this not be preferable, please let us know at your appointment.
Skin tags treatment tends to be only necessary if they are cosmetically causing you discomfort. They can often be unsightly or embarrassing as well as catching on clothes and getting irritated.
Skin tags are common on the neck, underarms, groin and eye areas that are simply a result of areas of skin rubbing and creating small excess tags of skin.
