Skin Tag Removal Surgery London

Skin Tag’s can be a day to day irritation as well as being unsightly. Skin tags are small, jelly texture, soft and skin-coloured growths that hang off the skin and look a bit like warts and are stretchy. Skin tags are commonly found on eyelids, neck, armpits, groin folds, and under breasts.

At Pulse Light Clinic we can safely remove unwanted skin tags in multiple areas of the body using advanced electrolysis techniques with sterex technology. This technique provides very little downtime after treatment and no test patch is needed.

Understanding Skin Tags with Pulse Light Clinic

Skin tags are small, harmless growths on the skin’s surface, often described as skin lesions, notable for their distinct appearance compared to the surrounding skin, usually manifesting as flesh-coloured or slightly pigmented. Removal is often done for cosmetic reasons. At Pulse Light Clinic, we offer expert consultation and advanced treatment options to address these concerns efficiently.

Classification of Skin Tags at Pulse Light Clinic:

At Pulse Light Clinic, we categorise skin tags into Primary and Secondary. Primary tags may occur due to heredity or spontaneously, whereas Secondary tags develop due to interactions with primary ones, leading to other formations like scars or crusts.

When Should One Seek Consultation at Pulse Light Clinic for Skin Tags?

It’s crucial to have any skin anomaly assessed. Particularly at Pulse Light Clinic, we recommend immediate consultation if skin tags change in appearance, bleed, become painful, or show other abnormal symptoms.

Skin Tag Removal Procedure at Pulse Light Clinic:

Removing skin tags is a straightforward process at Pulse Light Clinic, executed under local anaesthesia. Our adept surgeon will assess the type of skin tag and suggest appropriate treatment. If removal is needed, our methodical procedure ensures complete and safe removal:

  1. Sanitisation: Our surgeon prepares and sanitises the area meticulously.
  2. Excision: A precise incision is made to ensure complete removal of the tag and any abnormal cells.
  3. Examination: The removed tissue is sent for detailed analysis.
  4. Sealing and Shielding: Depending on the incision size, stitches and protective dressing are applied to avoid infections.

Post-Procedure Care and Recovery at Pulse Light Clinic:

Post-procedure, patients usually return home on the same day, with follow-ups to monitor recovery included. Our committed team addresses any complications immediately, at no extra charge. Return to work and normal activities is individual, based on healing progress, tag location, and job type.

Recovery Time:

Our surgeon will inform you about the expected recovery time during the consultation. Most individuals with desk jobs can usually resume work the next day. Post-surgery discomfort is minimal and manageable with standard pain relief, but any persisting issues should be communicated to your surgeon promptly.

Frequently Asked Questions Skin Tag Removal (FAQs)

What is a skin tag?

A skin tag is a small, benign, and typically flesh-coloured growth that hangs off the skin, often appearing in areas of friction, such as the neck, armpits, and groin.

What do skin tags look like?

Usually, they are soft, skin-coloured and small. However, the size can be as little as millimetres and as big as 5cm. They can be identified as they hang off the skin and are knobbly. Skin Tags are not contagious or painful.

Why does a skin tag appear?

Skin tags commonly originate from collagen, a widespread protein in the body. Comprising blood vessels, skin, and loose collagen fibres, skin tags can develop on anyone. However, they are more prevalent in older individuals, those with type 2 diabetes, and individuals with obesity.
Factors such as hormonal fluctuations, often seen during pregnancy, contribute to the formation of skin tags. While the cause remains unclear in some cases, friction between skin surfaces, like the neck, groin, thighs, or armpits, can lead to skin tag development. Additionally, areas with skin folds, such as under the breast or abdomen, make it easier for overweight individuals with excess skin to develop skin tags.

Why do I get skin tags?

Skin tags are usually caused by friction and are commonly found in skin creases and folds. Factors like obesity, age, genetics, and hormonal changes can also contribute to their development.

Why do people get skin tags?

Skin tags, also known as acrochordons, are common and often result from skin rubbing against itself. Friction in areas like the neck, underarms, or groin can contribute to their formation. Genetic factors, hormonal changes, and obesity may also play a role. While usually harmless, consult with professionals at Pulse Light Clinic for personalised advice and safe removal options.

When can a skin tag be a concern?

Skin tags are painless and do not usually cause harm. Yet, you may think of a skin tag to be removed if it's impacting your appearance, mental health or confidence, but also if you hook on garments or jewellery and bleed.

Do skin tags have roots?

Skin tags don't have roots in the traditional sense. They are small, benign growths that form when skin layers fold or rub against each other. Though they may appear connected to the skin, they lack roots like hair follicles. Pulse Light Clinic can provide expert guidance on the best approach for removal.

Do skin tags grow back?

While removal methods like cryotherapy or excision can eliminate existing skin tags, new ones may develop over time due to ongoing factors like friction or genetics. Regular check-ups with professionals at Pulse Light Clinic can address new growth and provide tailored solutions.
