skin tag on neckSkin tags are tiny areas of skin that have created a loose piece of tissue that protrudes from the surface. 

They vary in size from a few millimetres to a larger version that can be a few centimetres known as a papilloma that often dangles from the skin.

Skin tags on the body commonly occur in axilla underarms or groin areas. Those in the underarms and groin often occur due to the friction of skin rubbing on skin which causes the skin tags to grow. They can become numerous in number over time and grown quite large. They often have their own blood supply so can bleed a lot if people attempt DIY removal which is not advised.

Body skin tags are easily removed with costs from only £160.

The removal of skin tags is simple and quick. Most require a medial professional to remove so it is done safely and without any risk of infection or recurrence.

Genital Skin Tags

Skin tags can also occur in the embarrassing and sensitive anal and vaginal areas. See separate pages for information on anal skin tags and vaginal skin tags.

Treating Skin Tags at Home

Home remedies that include tying a piece of cotton thread around the base of skin tags in the hope they fall off can often lead to infection and leave the root so are best avoided. Destructive creams that are often acid based and other DIY skin tag removal can lead to bad scarring in some cases and we would advise patients to seek proper medical advice before embarking on these treatments.

Before & After

Skin tag removal is also very effective where tags appear under the arms where the skin rubs together

Skin tags are common in the groin area where skin rubs. Although harmless, removal is usually preferable for aesthetic and comfort reasons.

Really pleased with my experience from start to finish. I went for a procedure three days ago at the Bristol clinic. The receptionist was quick to call me back when I enquired about an appointment, and booked me in quickly. The waiting room was more like a visit to one of William the third's apartments at Hampton Court Palace. The really kind and friendly nurse helped to put me at ease before and during the procedure and made the experience less terrifying (I was very nervous)! And Dr Rhys Stevens also put made me feel relaxed and did a really good job, and pain free procedure. I'm very pleased with the results. Thank you!

I had been shopping around to have some Facial Thread Vein work done and was feeling unsure about it. I had concerns due to my lack of knowledge about the procedure as I have never had anything like this done before. All the other places I contacted were not so helpful and just booked me in for a consultation. However I spoke to Helen at Cosmedics on the telephone and found her helpful and informative. She listened to my concerns and even offered suggestions. It is rare these days to receive a high level of friendly customer service but on this day I did receive it. I have since had the work done and happy so far as I only had it done two days ago. However my big thanks is to Helen for putting me in the right direction. Thanks Helen!
