What are skin tags?
Skin tags are harmless fleshy growths which are attached by a stalk. Some people are more prone to them. Although they are harmless they can cause embarrassment. Common sites for skin tags include- under the arm pits, the neck area and any area which rubs against clothing.

How can they be treated?
At our Bristol Clinic we can remove skin tags by using a diathermy machine which removes the skin tags in a safe and controlled way using heat.
How can this procedure be arranged?
An initial consultation including a full assessment of your suitability for treatment will be performed. We will explain the treatment including expected results and after care advice. A costing will also be provided.
What happens on the day of treatment?
A consent form and pre treatment photos will be taken. The area will be numbed with local anaesthetic cream if required and the skin tags will be removed.
After care advice will be provided.
What should be expected after the treatment?
The area will crust over, a small scab may form and occasionally we apply a small dressing straight away after the treatment. Following this the treated area may appear slightly pink after, patients must be careful about exposing the treated area to sun light after the treatment for a few weeks.
What results should I expect?
The treated skin tags will normally required just one session. However occasionally a second session is required. If an individual is prone to skin tags new skin tags may form in the future which can then be treated.
