How does it work?
First of all, you will undergo an assessment consultation to ensure that the service is right for you and determine if treatment is needed via CryoPen or a plasma pen.
The CryoPen® is an innovative, high-performance cryosurgery tool to safely remove unsightly skin tags, warts, age spots and other benign skin lesions. The CryoPen® allows professionals to work with millimetre precision to remove all benign skin lesions with no more collateral damage to healthy tissue.
Please be aware that the service may require a follow-up appointment if we are unable to complete the treatment on the first attempt. The follow-up appointment is included in the original price.
What is a skin tag?
A skin tag, also known as an acrochordon or fibroepithelial polyp, is a small, benign growth that commonly appears on the skin's surface. It typically consists of a stalk or peduncle that connects the growth to the skin. Skin tags are often flesh-coloured or slightly darker and can vary in size, ranging from a few millimetres to a few centimetres in diameter.
Skin tags are generally harmless and painless, but they can sometimes cause irritation or discomfort if they rub against clothing or jewellery. They are most commonly found in areas where the skin folds or creases, such as the neck, underarms, groin, eyelids, and beneath the breasts.
The exact cause of skin tags is not fully understood, but they are believed to develop due to the friction or rubbing of skin against skin or clothing. They are more common in older adults and individuals who are overweight or have diabetes. Hormonal changes during pregnancy may also contribute to their development.
