What is a Skin Tag?

Skin tags are usually small, brown/flesh coloured growths that protrude from the skin. They are found anywhere on the body but mainly in areas where the skin rubs against itself. They are normally harmless but people choose to have them removed as they do not like the look of them.

How are Skin Tags removed?

We offer a Pre-procedure consultation in which we can assess the skin tag. Should there be any concerns before hand, these can be discussed during this appointment. We usually only require a pre-procedure consultation if the skin tag is around the Nose or Eye area, or if you request one.

There are two main methods of skin tag removal:

Shaving

Using Local anaesthetic around the area the skin tag can be shaved using a scalpel. This method is unlikely to require stitches, but may leave a pink or white scar in the area.

Excision

Again using local anaesthetic around the area, a scalpel would be used to cut the skin tag off along with a tiny area around it. Small stitches may be required. This will leave a small line scar.

Both methods will be explained during a pre-procedure consultation or at the beginning of the removal appointment.

For the safety of our patients we will only remove up to 3 skin tags in one appointment, to limit any chance of infection once you leave.

F.A.Q.s

Do i need a consultation before the removal?

Not always – we recommend you have a consultation if the skin tag is around the nose or eye area – or its larger than a 5p piece. Please also let us know if you have a pacemaker before your appointment.

Will i need time off work?

No – unless the skin tag is on your back & will require stitches, but this is only if you work with machinery or heavy lifting. Otherwise you should be fine to return to work straight away

I'm going on holiday - can i still have it removed?

We would recommend not having a removal done within 10-14 before going on holiday. If stitches are required we would need you to be able to return to clinic within 7-14 days for these to be removed

Do i need to keep the wound dry?

Shower proof plasters are used during the removal – after that we advise not to going swimming or soak in the bath for 10-14 days – Showers are fine after 24hrs.

Am i ok to drive after the removal?

If you require stitches we advise you bring someone with you just in case. Otherwise you should be fine to drive
