What is a Skin Tag?

A skin tag is a small, loose patch of skin that hangs from the body, usually, the tag will have a peduncle, or stalk. Skin tags can appear anywhere on the body, but are most common in areas where clothes or other skin contact occurs such as armpits, underneath the breast area, the groin area and around the neck.

Skin tags are fairly common and typically appear after midlife; they begin small and flat like a pinhead bump but frequently develop wider and can range in diameter from 2 mm to 1 cm, with a small percentage of large skin tags growing to 5 cm.

What causes Skin Tags?

Skin tags, also known as Acrochordons develop when the body creates additional cells in the outermost layers of the skin. They frequently occur in skin folds and places where the excess skin rubs up against itself naturally during movement.

Skin Tag Removal in London

At City Dermatology Clinic, we offer 2 types of skin tag removal treatments.

Skin Tag Cryotherapy

During this procedure, liquid nitrogen, a gas that creates freezing temperatures, is applied to the area in order to freeze the skin tag, this is a similar treatment used in wart removal.

The skin tag’s cells are killed by the freezing temperature, which also stops the area’s blood supply, leading the skin tag to slip off on its own. In some circumstances, discomfort and brief skin discolouration may happen, and if the skin tag doesn’t break out, more treatment may be needed.

Surgical Removal (Excision)

This minor surgical procedure is done with a local anaesthetic and so there is no discomfort involved. After the skin tag has been totally removed, you will be left with a small scab, allow the scab to fall off on its own without picking. This will result in the best possible cosmetic outcome.
