It is important to allow the best possible healing conditions for your skin tag. Depending on where the skin tag is located, you may be advised to sit in a certain way to avoid putting pressure on any wound for a day or two. This will be explained in the consultation before you decide to go ahead with the treatment.

You should avoid strenuous exercise for a week to avoid straining the wound although it is important to stay active and a daily gentle walk is recommended to boost your body’s natural circulation and healing.

After the first week, the initial wound should be healing well, but if you have any concerns or queries, please contact the Cosmedics team and Dr Ross Perry will provide advice.
