At COSMOSURE we offer the following procedures to remove skin tags:
NOTE: Skin tags can be excised by dermatologists or similarly trained medical professionals.
Cauterisation – the skin tag is burned off using electrolysis (using heat to remove them)
Ligation – the blood supply to the skin tag is interrupted
Excision – the skin tag is removed with a scalpel (it is cut out).
