Skin Tag Removal

What are skin tags?

Skin tags, medically known as acrochordons, are small, benign growths of skin that typically appear as tiny flaps or protrusions. They are usually flesh-colored or a little darker and can vary in size from a millimeter to a centimeter or more. Skin tags are composed of collagen fibers and blood vessels and are commonly found in areas where skin rubs against skin or against clothing, such as the neck, armpits, eyelids, groin, and under the breasts.

While skin tags are harmless and painless, they can be bothersome or cosmetically undesirable for some individuals. If you wish to get rid of skin tags, here are a few methods that can be used:

a. Excision: A doctor can remove the skin tag using a scalpel or medical scissors after numbing the area with a local anesthetic.

b. Cauterization: The skin tag is burned off using a device that delivers heat or electricity.

c. Cryotherapy: Liquid nitrogen or 35% hydrogen peroxide is applied to freeze the skin tag, causing it to fall off.

d. Ligation: The blood supply to the skin tag is cut off by tying it off with a small string or dental floss, causing it to die, blacken in colour and drop off.

It's essential to ensure that what you're dealing with is indeed a skin tag, as other skin conditions may require different treatments.
This can be determined during a consultation. There is no fee for a consultation up to 30 minutes.

At Beauty Tree Canada, we use the cryotherapy method. Sometimes combined with ligation.The process is relatively quick and is usually successful 1 or 2 treatments. 

The fee for skin tag removal is $30/skin tag.
