Skin tags are common, acquired, harmless skin growths that look like a small piece of soft, hanging skin. Some individuals may be more prone to tags than others. They normally appear where there is constant friction/rubbing of the skin and therefore obesity and being moderately overweight dramatically increase the chances of having skin tags. Some small tags spontaneously rub or fall off painlessly. However, most tags remain apparent once formed.
To remove the skin tag, your LA practitioner will put a tiny injection of local anaesthetic into the base of the tag in order to numb the area. Once numb, the skin tag is removed and a shower-proof dressing is applied for 48 hours.
A consultation will be given prior to the treatment and a consent form will need to be completed and signed.
A follow up appointment is not normally required.
