Skin tags are unsightly growths that can occur anywhere on the face, eyes and body. They are a pre-genetic disposition that through your life certain triggers will cause them to materialise and have growth spurts. Triggers can be:
- Exposure to sunlight
- Hormonal changes
They will more than often appear on areas where there is friction.
We are able to treat skin tags but treatment involves a consultation prior to ensure you are suitable and to explain the aftercare. If you are a skin type 4 then a patch test will need to be carried out first as the skin may have hyper or hypo pigmentation after, this fades within 6-12 months and can occur in a darker skin type.
A small hair like needle is used with an electrolysis current to cautrice the skin tag. It will feel a little hot and sharp.
Our therapists Melanie and Tessa who provide this service each have over 15 years experience.
CONSULTATION AND PATCH TEST
We carry out a 15 minute treatment and charge a flat rate price for this.
During your consultation if we feel you may need more than a 15 minute treatment we will advice you before starting.
