What are skin tags?

Skin tags develop in both men and women as they grow older. They are skin coloured or darker and range in size from 1mm to 5mm.
These lesions are most commonly formed as a result of ageing, but they tend to also be prevalent in obese people or people who have gained or lost a lot of weight.
They also tend to be more numerous in those with type 2 diabetes.

This treatment involves removing the skin tag by freezing it, also known as Cryotherapy.
This is where Liquid Nitrogen is used on the skin tag to destroy its cells. This allows for the tag to be easily and painlessly removed.
It’s even quiet common for the skin tags to simply fall off naturally after cryotherapy treatment.
This is where a local anaesthetic is provided and a razor is then used to shave the lesion off, cutting off the skin tag.
This method of getting rid of skin tags uses an electrical current and needle, working in contrast to the freezing method, by instead heating up the lesion.
This allows the skin tag to easily be cut from the skin surface.
