Skin tag removal

What is the cause of skin tags?

Skin tags occur when extra cells grow in the top layers of the skin. They tend to develop when the skin rubs against itself, so are more common in people who are overweight and therefore have folds of skin. They grow both in men and women and are more common in older people and people living with type 2 diabetes.

Below is more information about how they are removed. 

The area being treated is cleaned prior to the procedure. Multiple shots of Plasma spaced closely together are administered with the treatment taking just minutes to perform. The Plasma causes a process called sublimation which turns a solid into a gas so essential ‘vaporises’ the skin being targeted. There is no heat transferred to surrounding tissues and therefore no damage caused to the rest of the skin.

Results are instant with mole, skin tag and wart removal. Following treatment a little dark brown micro-crust can be seen in the treatment site which will flake off after approximately 5 to 10 days. You should be prepared for your skin to be left slightly pink from the heat that was applied and for slight puffiness to manifest in some areas. These symptoms are usually short lived.
