The Skin Tag Removal Clinic in London You Can Trust
Is skin tag removal safe?
Skin tag removal is a safe procedure when completed by the practitioners at Harley Laser. Performed in a clinical environment by highly skilled and trained practitioners we adhere to strict protocols that both meet and exceed all statutory regulations and requirements.
Will my skin tag grow back?
Our treatments ensure that skin tags are permanently removed but cannot prevent new skin tags from growing in the future.
What results will I see?
With different treatments, there are slightly different results. Skin tags are fully removed with excision removal treatment, and a small white or pink scar will remain in its place. Cryotherapy causes the skin tag to fall off naturally, but in some cases, slight discoloration of the skin and irritation may occur. This is only temporary, and the skin will gradually return to normal.
Can skin tags be removed for cosmetic reasons?
Skin tags can be removed for cosmetic reasons unless your doctor believes there are medical reasons to leave the skin tag in place. We are able to help many patients who cannot receive NHS treatment and we understand how important it is to provide this service – skin tags can cause low self-esteem which can be restored with a simple treatment.
How long does it take to heal after skin tag removal?
Once your skin tag has been removed, your skin may feel tender for several days afterwards and may need to be covered. You will be given full aftercare instructions, and a dressing may be applied by your practitioner if it is deemed necessary. It is extremely rare to experience complications you are free to leave the clinic as soon as the anaesthetic has worn off.
Does skin tag removal leave a scar?
Removal by excision will leave a small white or pink scar, while cryotherapy carries a small risk of scarring and discolouration.
Is skin tag removal painful?
Skin tag removal treatment is quick and virtually painless. Local anaesthetic can be applied during your skin tag removal procedure but if anything, the procedure is slightly uncomfortable rather than painful – but due to the speed it is not a problem.
What is the best skin tag removal method?
We offer two methods of skin tag removal – laser removal and cryotherapy. We will work with you to determine the method that is best suited to your needs.
