Skin tags can be quite irritating; they can get cut by razors, caught on jewellery, and pinched by your waistband. Advanced Electrolysis offers a highly effective solution for removing skin tags. It is a fuss-free and affordable treatment to remove skin tags from your body and face*. The results are highly effective and permanent**. Sam has over 5 years’ experience in removing skin tags using Advanced Electrolysis and will remove your skin tags efficiently and effectively.
What are Skin Tags?
Some people are more susceptible to developing skin tags than others and thousands of people have them. Medical experts believe that genetics play a huge role in whether you are predisposed to developing skin tags.
A skin tag can crop up anywhere on the body. They are most commonly found on the face, underarms, neck and below the bra line. They may also form on the bikini-line and the eyelids.
Skin tags are brownish or skin coloured, wobbly soft flaps of skin and are the result of friction caused by skin to skin contact or when the skin rubs against clothing. Skin tags are generally small in size and although annoying, are not harmful. They can become as big as a grape in some cases.
*There are some cases where skin tags unfortunately cannot be removed. Skin tags on the eyelids or very close to the eyes cannot be removed with Advanced Electrolysis and skin tags that have a large attachment to the skin are unfortunately outside of our remit. If you are unsure if yours can be removed, please get in touch and Sam will be happy to contact you to discuss.
**There is a possibility that more skin tags can develop in certain areas of high friction over time. These will be new skin tags and not an existing skin tag re-forming.
How are skin tags removed?
Here at Physical Balance, we cauterise skin tags using an electrolysis needle. This treatment removes skin tags without leaving any scars. The number of treatments you require will depend on the number of tags you have, as well as their size. You will usually be able to have multiple small tags removed in one session. Treatment time is 15 minutes.
Advanced Electrolysis treatment for skin tag removal is a virtually painless solution. You don’t need any anaesthesia for removing skin tags. There is a slight stinging sensation whilst the tag is being removed but most find this only mildly uncomfortable.
Immediately after you might see some discolouration and redness. Don’t worry, it’s only temporary. Other than that, there is no permanent scarring with Advanced Electrolysis treatment for skin tags and a simple aftercare routine is advised and will be sent to you after your treatment.
