A Skin Tag is a small flap of tissue that hangs off the skin by a connecting stalk. Skin tags are harmless skin lesions.
They appear most often in women, especially with weight gain and in elderly people. Irritation can occur if the skin tag frequency rubs against clothing or jewelry.
Skyn Doctor uses Cryopen, an advanced cryotherapy device that delivers an ultracold jet of high-pressure nitrous oxide to safely remove the skin lesion.
- The treatment is very quick, usually taking a few minutes
- There is virtually no down time
- Painless treatment
- No anaesthetic is needed
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does the treatment work?
The applicator is held as close as possible to the skin imperfection and moved quickly towards and away from it. The nitrous oxide destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid in a matter of seconds, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the membrane, thereby destroying the cell. That means there will be no collateral damage to healthy tissue. It’s incredibly accurate and precise.
Is there any pain with the procedure?
Cryotherapy is a virtually painless procedure. There may be a mild sensation similar to a stinging nettle on the skin when the nitrous oxide reaches the bottom of the area but is usually well tolerated.
What is the treatment cost?
It is very difficult to state a fixed price as it will depend on the size, depth, quantity and area of the skin lesion being treated.
Prices typically start from £50 with discounted prices being available for multiple lesions/areas.
