Skin tags removal
If you have an irritating fleshy piece of skin that sticks out the chances are this is a skin tag. Skin tags are harmless but can be annoying and patients’ often just want to get rid of them as they can affect their self-confidence. Skin tags are often visible in areas such as the face, eyelids, neck, underarm and groin.
Most skin tags are 2-3mm in size and larger skin tags (papillomas) can reach 5mm or more. If you are unsure about any new or changing skin lesions having a skin check with a doctor may be a good idea. Speak to one of our doctors today to see if you’re eligible for skin tag removal treatment.
Skin tag removal costs from only £250
The NHS considers skin tag removal to be a cosmetic and therefore does not offer treatments for this. At Cosmedics our doctors are happy to help with a range of skin tag removal treatment options that are quick and easy meaning they can remove the skin tags in one appointment. These include cryotherapy (freezing), surgical excision or laser treatment. We also offer skin tag removal on the genitalia area such as anal skin tag and vaginal skin tag removal.
Skin tag removal consultation
We charge £50 for a skin tag removal consultation with one of our experienced doctors. Prices for skin tag removal treatments carried out in the same appointment as the consultation will include the £50 consultation fee (note: same-day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so and the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge).
Cryotherapy / Freezing skin tag removal treatment
Cryotherapy/freezing treatment is the destruction of skin tissue by using liquid nitrogen to freeze the skin cells until they die.
The freezing treatment normally involves 5-10 seconds of the liquid spray is 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 but can mean the tag has a few days of hanging around before it falls off.
Excison / Laser
The skin tag can be excised/snipped off under local anaesthetic to ensure the tag has gone and won’t recur. This is the best for all types of skin tags, small, difficult areas, large tags or numerous skin tags. Excised/snipped off skin tags is a quick procedure making the skin tag removed straight away with a slight blemish to the skin that will heal like a spot within a couple of days.

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.
Skin tag histology/testing
* 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.
