Skin tags can vary in size from just a few millimetres to a few centimetres wide. They are most commonly found around the neck, armpits, groin or breast area. They can also be found on eye-lids. It is estimated that half the population will experience having a skin tag at some point, so they are extremely common and can catch on clothing or be unsightly.
For those visiting their GP regarding skin tags, they will have found they cannot be treated on the NHS as the treatment is regarded as a cosmetic procedure. At Intimate You our doctors use the last SmartXtide2 DOT/RF fractionated CO2 laser to quickly and efficiently remove single or multiple skin tags.
Topical anaesthetic cream is used on the treatment area and aftercare may include steroid, antibiotic and softening ointments, depending on the area treated. Risk of scarring is minimal once full healing is completed.
At Intimate You we treat skin tags in all areas, including eyelids and genital area.
