Causes of skin tags
Skin Tags are made of loose collagen fibres and blood vessels surrounded by skin. They are quite common in older people and pregnant women as a result of changes in hormones, however, there is not a set reason for patients to develop skin tags.
Although skin tags are harmless, they can snag on jewellery and clothing causing discomfort and affect your self-esteem.
Treatments for Skin Tags
At Health & Aesthetics we regularly treat skin tags using a cautery device (Hyfracator, Plexr or Lamprobe).
If skin tags are around the eyes, the treatment must be completed by Dr Rekha Tailor due to the sensitive nature of the area. Any other skin tags can be removed by one of our experienced aestheticians.
