Skin Tags  

Skin Tags are small, brown or flesh-coloured growths that protrude from the surface of the skin, usually by a few millimetres. Often mistaken for warts, skin tags can appear anywhere on the body but are typically found in areas where skin is repeatedly rubs against itself, such as the armpits, groin, eyelids and neck. Some skin tags grow over time and very occasionally, can become as large as 5 centimetres.

We use a Hyfrecator to completely remove Skin Tags. The process of hyfrecation is performed with a small blade with an electrical pulse which acts as a diathermy to burn away tiny and undesired Skin Tags from the skin. The treatment is often tolerated well after topical anaesthetic and is highly effective.
