Using Nano Plasma treatment, our Practitioners can safely remove skin tags from any area of the skin. Your skin will be smoothed immediately, and the production of collagen is stimulated to rejuvenate the area with no scarring, bleeding, or hyperpigmentation. There is no need for any stitches.
Please be mindful that this is a cosmetic procedure. If you are concerned about any change to a skin tag such as bleeding, redness, ulceration, itchiness, and change in size, please visit your GP. We are only able to remove skin tags with a normal appearance, or which have been confirmed to be non-cancerous by your doctor or dermatologist.
A consultation appointment will be arranged with one of our Practitioners to discuss your personal needs. Multiple skin tags can be removed in one visit, so we would plan with you the areas that you want to have treated, and prescribe a programme of treatment to achieve the desired results with minimum disruption.
We will take photos as a reference point before treatment starts. We will provide a treatment programme for you that will include all the treatment information you need, as well as the likely costs for you to consider. The consultation appointment is free of charge and allows you the opportunity to discuss any questions you may have, and if you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us – our friendly team will be happy to answer your questions and schedule your visits.
Removal of the skin tag will instantly leave your skin surface flatter. The tissue of the skin tag is completely vaporised away by the Nano Plasma equipment. You will be left with small brown marks where the skin tag was attached, the size of this depends on the size of the base of the skin tag. These marks are crusts of carbonised cells that will flake away over the next few days, leaving a smooth, flat skin surface. During this healing time it is particularly important to follow the post-treatment care instructions that our Practitioners advise for you.
Most patients can carry on with their normal daily routines following Nano Plasma skin tag removal. Where the skin tag was removed you must avoid picking at the carbon crust, if you have several tags removed from one area you may experience minor discomfort or swelling for up to 7 days. The carbon crusts will fall off after approximately 5 days to reveal new healing skin underneath. You will be advised on the most appropriate skincare routine to allow the best healing result.
As with all Nano Plasma aesthetic treatments at Cirencester Dental and Aesthetics, we will arrange a review appointment in the month following treatment to monitor healing. Once removed, skin tags will not regrow, however, in areas where the skin rubs together such as skin folds, new skin tags can develop, and these too can be safely removed if needed.
