Skin tags

Skin tags - What are they?

Skin tags are small, benign growths that often appear on areas of the body where skin rubs against skin or clothing, such as the neck, armpits, or groin. These fleshy outgrowths are typically painless and harmless, but they can be bothersome or cosmetically undesirable.


ok, harmless. But I want them gone!

Our method for removing skin tags is cautery, which involves using heat to burn off the growth. During the procedure, the area around the skin tag is typically numbed with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Then, a specialized cautery tool, such as a small probe or pen-like device, is used to apply heat directly to the base of the skin tag, effectively cauterizing the blood vessels and causing the tag to fall off. Cautery is generally considered safe and effective for removing skin tags, with minimal risk of scarring when performed by a skilled practitioner.  Like me. 


How long will it take to heal?

Because or treatment methods involve minimal bleeding, the area heals in a matter of days, so long as you’re sensible with it! It’s very important to use good sun protection and vaseline regularly on the area while it heals.
