Skin Tags

What are skin tags?

Skin tags are small harmless growths that hang off your skin, they often appear with a stalk like a mushroom and vary in size from smaller than a grain of uncooked rice, to the size of a large pea. They tend to be soft and smooth and can vary in colour.

What causes skin tags?

Skin tags can be caused for no apparent reason, but are usually found in areas of friction where the skin folds rub together for example neck, underarms, groin and eyelid. People who have more folds in their skin are more prone to getting skin tags.

How does skin tag removal work?

At Shumaila’s we use advanced electrolysis techniques to safely and effectively cauterise and remove skin tags. A small needle is used to cut off the skin tag and to cauterise it with high frequency current (shortwave diathermy). In fact doctors were using an early type of this treatment back in 1900’s to treat broken capillaries, warts and xanthelasma. The treatment has progressed and improved beyond recognition with modern technology and is a safe, comfortable and effective treatment much in demand by clients.

How many sessions will you need?

Depending on how many skin tags you have, our appointment is a maximum of 30 minutes. During this time, we remove as many skin tags as possible. If you only have 1 skin tag, only 1 session is needed – however if you have many then it depends on how many we are able to treat in one 30 minute session. You may need further sessions, to treat them all.

What is the healing time?

Following your treatment you can expect some scabbing where the skin tag was removed. The scabs or crusts must be left to fall off naturally. The skin can take up to 3 to 4 weeks to fully heal. Please scroll down to our Frequently Asked Questions section below, to read our full aftercare advice.

Will the skin scar where the skin tag is removed?

There is always a small risk of pigmentation (lightening or darkening) of the skin where the skin tag was removed. This also depends on how large and the type of skin tag it was. However, we take great care to avoid pigmentation changes and the technique we use is much more gentle on the skin as compared to removal by cryo freezing.

Does skin tag removal hurt?

Skin tag removal with electrolysis is slightly uncomfortable but not painful. You can expect to feel a heat sensation in a similar way to a pin prick.

    Skin Tag Removal Frequently Asked Questions

    POST TREATMENT ADVICE TO CLIENTS

    Following your treatment you may experience:

    • Reddening, swelling and sensitivity of the skin in the area up to 48 hours.
    • The treated area and surrounding skin may feel hot for up to 48 hours.
    • Pin dot crusts or small scabs may appear in the treated area.
    • The skin may itch as the healing process takes place.

    Following treatment ensure that you adhere to the aftercare instructions to avoid unwanted reactions/infections:

    • Apply an antiseptic cream where the skin tag is removed to protect the skin from infections
    • Pin dot crusts or scabs may appear which seal the skin and prevent infection.
    • These must not be rubbed or picked off, as to do so may result in scarring.
    • The crusts or scabs are tiny and often are “felt” rather than “seen”.
    • Do not touch, rub or irritate the treated area.
    • When washing and cleansing around the area, use a gentle soap or perfume free cleanser and gently pat the area dry to avoid dislodging any crusts or scabs.
    • Avoid activities for 48 hours that stimulate blood flow following vascular treatments, e.g exercise, hot showers, hot baths, hot spicy food and alcohol.
    • Avoid activities for 48 hours that may irritate or dislodge any crusts or scabs, e.g. swimming, saunas, steam rooms, facial steaming, facial scrubs, waxing and other beauty treatments until the area has completely healed.
    • You must keep out of UV light completely during the healing process and as much as possible hereafter.
    • Once healed, cover and protect sun exposed areas using a good quality, high factor sunscreen at all times, particularly in the summer months.
    • Avoid using any possible skin sensitisers or irritants such as perfumes, fake tan, products or perfumed body lotions until skin is healed.
    • Should you have any concerns regarding your treatment please contact the salon.
