More about Skin Tags

Skin tags are small, benign growths that commonly appear on the skin. They are typically soft and flesh-coloured and may vary in size and shape. Skin tags often develop in areas where the skin rubs against clothing or other skin, such as the neck, armpits, groin, and under the breasts. They are not harmful or painful, but some people may choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons, or because they cause an itch, or catch on jewellery. Skin tags are very common, and while their exact cause is unknown, they may be related to age, genetics, and hormonal changes. Most skin tags are between 1-5 millimetres, but some can grow as large as a few centimetres.
Skin tags can be removed with a plasma pen, which uses a high-frequency electrical current to create a small plasma arc. This arc is directed at the skin tag, causing it to dry up and fall off. The procedure is minimally invasive and typically requires no downtime. After the treatment, the skin may be slightly red and swollen while a scab develops, but this typically resolves within a few days. It is important to note that plasma pen treatment should only be performed by a trained and experienced professional to ensure the safe and effective removal of the skin tag. Consult a general practitioner if you are unsure that your skin tag or mole is cancerous.

Treatment Steps

1

CONSULTATION

The dermal aesthetician will assess the skin type and the client's concerns. They will then discuss the budget and set expectations.

2

Cleansing and LOCALISED NUMBING

The area to be treated is cleaned and disinfected and a local anaesthetic is applied to minimise discomfort.

3

PLASMA TREATMENT

The plasma pen is used to administer multiple shots of plasma, targeting the skin tags. The plasma cauterises the skin being targeted without transferring heat to surrounding tissues.

4

POST-TREATMENT

After the procedure, a disinfectant spray is applied to the treated area.

These tips can really help reduce the healing time of the treatment.
Avoid submerging in water until the scabs fall off
Avoid extreme temperatures for 2 weeks
Avoid touching the treated area
Gently wash and moisturise the treated area
Avoid excessive exercise for 1 day
Avoid sun exposure for 1 month
Avoid harsh creams and perfumes for 2 weeks
Apply sunscreen to the treated area
The aftercare instructions apply to the treated areas and should be followed in regard to healing the scabs for 6 - 14 days.
The treatment itself has no downtime and you can return to your normal activities on the same day.

While the infection is rare with plasma pen treatment for skin tag removal, scarring is a possibility, though unlikely if proper aftercare instructions are followed. Every person is different, and some may be more prone to scarring than others. In the case of scarring, it may be slightly darker or lighter than the person's skin tone. However, the treatment is performed carefully to minimise the risk of scarring. For those who are concerned about scarring, a scar repair cream is available at the clinic to aid in clear results.

Frequently Asked Questions

IS IT A ONCE-off treatment?

In most cases, skin tag removal with a plasma pen is a one-time treatment. However, some individuals may have multiple skin tags or develop new ones over time. If new skin tags appear, they can be treated with the same or similar methods as before. It is important to follow proper aftercare instructions and maintain good skin hygiene to reduce the likelihood of developing new skin tags.

CAN THE SKIN TAGS COME BACK?

It is possible for skin tags to come back after they have been removed, particularly if the underlying cause of the skin tag (such as obesity or hormonal changes) is not addressed. However, with proper aftercare and continued maintenance, the risk of skin tags returning can be minimised. If new skin tags do appear, they can be treated with the same or similar methods as before.

What causes Skin tags?

The exact cause of skin tags is not fully understood, but they are generally thought to occur due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Skin tags are often associated with obesity, diabetes, pregnancy, hormonal changes, and aging. Friction and rubbing of the skin may also contribute to the development of skin tags, particularly in areas where the skin folds or creases, such as the neck, armpits, and groin.

CAN SKIN TAGS BE REMOVED AT HOME?

While it is possible to remove skin tags at home using various methods, such as tying them off with string or cutting them off with scissors, it is not recommended. Attempting to remove skin tags at home can be risky and may lead to infection, scarring, and other complications. It is best to seek professional advice and have skin tags removed by a trained professional using safe and effective methods.

WHO CANNOT RECEIVE Skin tag removal?

While generally considered a safe and effective treatment, there are some situations where plasma skin tag removal may not be recommended. People who have certain medical conditions or are taking certain medications may not be suitable candidates for plasma skin tag removal. These may include individuals with bleeding disorders or those taking blood-thinning medications, pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals with a history of keloids, individuals with active skin infections, individuals with a history of skin cancer, individuals with psoriasis, eczema, or rosacea, and individuals who are prone to seizures.
