Skin Tag Removal
Remove unsightly skin tags non-surgically with electrocautery
If you’re affected by skin tags, you know that although harmless, these common fleshy growths are often unsightly and annoying, especially if they become irritated or inflamed. At Mana’s Med Sap, we offer a range of options for the removal of skin tags, including electrocautery and laser.
Electrocautery uses a light electrical current to heat up the skin, in order to destroy and remove the skin tag in question. The in-office procedure is fast and comfortable, lasting approximately 30 minutes. A topical anaesthetic is applied to minimize any potential discomfort, at which point the skin tag is cauterized with several touches of the electrocautery handpiece. The tag will become dry and black and will either fall off immediately or within one to two weeks. This process and the recovery time will vary depending on the location of the skin tag, and individual healing.
Frequently Asked Questions
IS THERE ANY DOWN TIME?
The treated area will look different in color, so you will want to plan on using tinted moisturizer or a band aid to cover the treated area.
WHAT IS THE AFTER CARE?
We ask that you refrain from picking, peeling or pulling the area of treatment, to let it heal on its own. Within a few weeks, the skin will heal and the treated area will return to normal skin quality.
HOW LONG WOULD THE TREATMENT TAKE?
Treatment time takes approximately 10 to 30 minutes.
IS THIS TREATMENT PERMANENT?
Yes! Once a skin growth has been treated it generally never returns. However, if your skin is prone to these types of growths, new ones may still appear elsewhere on your face and body.
WILL I HAVE A SCAR AFTER SKIN TAG REMOVAL?
In most cases, patients do not have a visible appearance of a scar because of the highly advanced and precise technology we use combined with the recovery skincare every patient is sent home with.
