Skin Tags Removal in Newcastle

Skin Tags Removal

If you are looking for skin tag removal then our specialist Dermatologists are able to provide you with sound advice and excellent operating skills.

Skin tags are small, soft, skin-coloured growths on your skin. They can vary in colour and size – from a few millimetres up to 5cm wide.

Skin tags are usually found on the neck, armpits, around the groin, or under the breasts. They can also grow on the eyelids or under the folds of the buttocks.

How do dermatologists remove skin tags?

The Procedure

Skin tags can easily be burnt or frozen off in a similar way to how warts are removed. They can also be surgically removed, sometimes using local anaesthetic. Freezing or burning skin tags can cause irritation and temporary skin discoloration, and the skin tag may not fall off and further treatment may be needed.

Options for removal can include : cauterization, cryosurgery, electrocautery, ligation and surgery. A consultation will help to determine the most suitable solution for you.

What skin tags look like

What to look for

They can look like warts, but skin tags are usually:

  • Smooth and soft (warts tend to be rougher with an irregular surface)
  • Knobbly and hang off the skin (warts are usually slightly raised or flat)
  • Not contagious (warts spread very easily, so a sudden outbreak or cluster of growths is more likely to be warts)
    Skin tags do not usually cause any pain or discomfort.

Should I be worried if I have skin tags?

There’s no need to worry—skin tags aren’t a sign of a more serious health issue. It’s a benign skin condition that affects millions of people every year. These tiny skin growths are often found in “folds” of the skin, or areas where skin frequently rubs against itself.

Skin Tag Removal FAQ's

Skin tags occur when extra cells grow in the top layers of the skin. They tend to develop when the skin rubs against itself, so are more common in people who are overweight and therefore have folds of skin. They grow both in men and women and are more common in older people and people living with type 2 diabetes.

When should you remove a skin tag? A skin tag that’s infected or inflamed should come off. Otherwise, you don’t need to remove it unless you don’t like the way it looks or it’s getting caught in your clothes or jewelry and irritating you.

There are only a few things that a person can do to reduce the development of skin tags. The main factor is to reduce friction where the tags tend to develop. Necklaces are the common provoking factor in skin tags growing more on the neck. Friction under the arms can also promote growth of tags in that area.

Will Skin Tags Grow Back After Being Removed? Skin tags do not grow back after removal. If you develop other skin tags in the same place after removal, you may just be prone to having them in that area.

It could lead to bleeding, infection or irritation. Cutting off a skin tag with scissors yourself can lead to infection or uncontrollable bleeding, which may require a trip to the ER. (You’d be surprised at how much a large skin tag can bleed if not cauterized or frozen by a professional.) It can also hurt — a lot.

Are skin tags cancerous? No. Skin tags are benign growths that contain collagen, a type of protein found throughout the body, and blood vessels. Skin tags don’t require any treatment.

A healthcare provider can remove a skin tag quickly and safely, using laser therapy, cryotherapy, or a medical-grade blade. The area can be numbed beforehand so you don’t feel the procedure.
