FAQ – your skin tag removal questions answered
What is the cause of skin tags?
It is unknown to what exactly causes skin tags on the body and face. Since skin tags usually show up in skin folds such as armpits and the neck friction be the cause. Skin tags are made up of blood vessels and collagen surrounded by an outer layer of skin. HPV which is a viral infection may be a factor in the development of skin tags.
Where do skin tags occur?
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.
Why are skin tags a problem?
Skin tags treatment tends to be only necessary if they are cosmetically causing you discomfort or getting in the way of your everyday life. They can often affect peoples self-esteem and confidence as well as catching on clothes and getting irritated. If you are interested in skin tag removal treatment then get in touch today for a consultation.
Is it harmful to remove/pull off a skin tag yourself?
As tempting as it is to remove a skin tag by yourself, it is not advised. If you try to remove a skin tag yourself this can lead to bleeding and infection, it is best for a specialist to do so, book a consultation and speak to a doctor at Cosmedics today.
What does a skin tag look like on the face?
Often skin tags can be mistaken for spots especially when they are on the face. When on the face, the surface of skin tags may appear smooth or irregular in appearance. They are often raised from the surface of the skin on fleshy peduncles or stalks as a flesh-coloured or slightly brown appearance. If you feel like you have a skin tag on the face and would like this professionally removed then book a consultation with Cosmeidcs today.
Are there any over the counter remedies for skin tags?
They are not widely available, but you can get ‘DIY’ skin tag treatment preparations designed for use at home, available in larger chemists. If you are keen to try the self treatment route, ensure that you buy from a reputable high street supplier avoiding ‘internet cures’ which may be unregulated and untested.
Read the information very carefully to ensure that it is a suitable product for your requirements. For example, most cannot be used on facial areas and require the skin tags to have some very specific attributes.
If in doubt, book in to see one of our doctors and surgeons, who can offer skin tag removal in our registered clinics.
Can I get skin tags removed on the NHS?
The NHS considers skin tag removal to be a cosmetic issue and therefore does not offer treatments for this.
How does laser/excision treatment work?
In laser/excision procedures, the skin tag can be excised/snipped off under local anaesthetic to ensure that it has gone and won’t recur. Laser/excision skin tag removal is a quick procedure and is particularly satisfying as the skin tag is removed straight away, leaving only a slight blemish to the skin that will heal like a spot within a couple of days.
This tends to be the best method for all types of skin tags; including small, difficult areas, large tags or numerous skin tags.
How does cryotherapy/freezing treatment work?
Cryotherapy/freezing treatment uses liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin cells until they die. The tag tends to shrivel up for a few days before eventually falling off.
The freezing treatment normally involves 5-10 seconds of the liquid spray, applied with a break of 1-2 minutes between treatment cycles. The duration and number of treatment cycles depend on the skin type and the nature of the problem.
For small skin tag removal, cryotherapy or freezing treatment is a quick low priced option.
Will I need skin tag histology/testing?
In certain cases, we may advise patients to have their skin lesions sent for histology/testing. 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. We realise patients often feel it is not required, so we charge the lowest prices possible for histology. It is important to offer this service, because occasionally rare or suspicious things are detected early on in lesions that can look normal.
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.
