What are skin tags?PlusMinus

Skin tags are very common, harmless, and can vary in color and size – from a few millimeters up to 5cm (about 2 inches) wide. They are usually found on the neck, armpits, around the groin, or under the breasts. They can also grow on the eyelids or under the folds of the buttocks.

Why do I get skin tags?PlusMinus

Skin tags are, in a nut shell, 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, typically over weight clients find that their skin can rub against itself to cause the loose skin bumps.


Q: Is this treatment painful?
A: This treatment is usually a very quick and simple process. During the treatment you can feel a sharp heat sensation which only lasts a few seconds. As the skin tag dries you will begin to feel less and less.

Treatments - How can we help with Skin Tags?PlusMinus

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 pin prick or quick bee sting. The treatment will leave a small mark with 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 could be out the door in a half an hour lunch break.

Our tips for aftercarePlusMinus

We recommend to wear loose clothing and wearing anything which could aggravate the area. We also recommend to take a break from necklaces now and then to prevent additional skin tags from forming. We recommend to 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 where treated skin tags which are larger, dry up and fall off over 5-10 days after the treatment.
