What Is a Skin Tag?

A skin tag can be described as a growth on the skin. Skin tags can start by looking like the head of a pin and in some cases, they can continue to grow. It’s important to note that skin tags are typically harmless and can be removed with proper treatment.

While skin tags aren’t always present at birth, they can form at any time during adulthood. They are more prevalent in women but skin tags can still occur in men. Skin tags are also more commonly seen in overweight individuals as well as darker-skinned individuals. While some skin tags may fall off without any pain, some individuals prefer to have them removed by a professional.

What Are the Removal Options?

Skin tags can be removed based on personal preference or because they have become irritated. Three of the most common removal methods include:

  • Freezing
  • Burning
  • Cutting

It’s important to note that while home remedies exist for removing skin tags, they are not always safe. Some home remedies can leave you with severe pain or scarring. Be sure to always consult a healthcare professional before attempting an at-home remedy.

Cyrotherapy is known to be the treatment of “freezing”. It uses liquid nitrogen to remove a skin tag. Although, it’s important to seek a professional for this type of procedure because if you use Cyrotherapy on your face to remove skin tags, an inexperienced doctor can leave you with scarring or skin discolouration.

How We Can Help

Here at Ava Laser Clinic, our team uses Electrocautery to effectively burn the skin tag off. This treatment provides customers with minimal pain and scarring*. After this treatment has taken place, the skin tag will go dry and black and it will fall off in the coming days. This treatment option is safe and can be completed without the use of anaesthesia.
