Why do I get skin tags?
Skin tags are, in a nutshell, loose skin that is attached to the body. They are caused by friction to the skin which can be from clothing, accessories or even from rubbing skin. Men are often victim to skin tags as they are open to more friction on the skin from high collars and shirts. It’s not just clothing and necklaces which can cause skin tags though, as sometimes individuals who are overweight find that their skin can rub against itself, causing loose skin bumps.
How can I get rid of my skin tags?
Advanced electrolysis is a skin tag removal technique which uses a high intensity current to laser off the skin tag. It simply slices off the tag, which can feel like a hot pinprick or quick bee sting. The treatment will leave a small mark where the tag used to be, which will fade away and disappear over time. As it is usually a minor area to treat, there is no need for numbing cream and you can be out the door and skin tag free in as little as half an hour!

Our tips for aftercare
We recommend you wear loose clothing and avoid wearing anything which could aggravate the treated area. We also recommend you take a break from necklaces now and then to prevent additional skin tags from forming. We recommend you keep the area clean and apply antiseptic for at least 5 days (2/3 times a day) and to obviously not touch or pick the area. There is the occasional chance, when treating larger skin tags, that the skin tag will dry up and fall off over 5-10 days after the treatment.
