Skin Tag Removal

What are Skin Tags?

Skin tags are painless, noncancerous growths on the skin. They’re connected to the skin by a small, thin stalk called a peduncle. Skin tags are common in both men and women, especially after age 50.

Avoid scrubbing the area whilst bathing for the first 48 hours.

Important information:

It’s not a good idea to try to remove skin tags on your own. Many websites offer DIY instructions for removing skin tags by tying them off with string or applying a chemical peel. Even in a sterile environment, removing skin tags may cause bleeding, burns, and infection. It’s best to let your aesthetician handle the job and to follow care instructions carefully.
