How are Skin Tags Removed?

Skin tags are a very easy skin lesion to remove. Using our cryotherapy pen, we will spray nitrogen oxide onto the lesion and remove it. It will dry out and go quite dark and flake off. The healing process then will take up to four weeks for the new skin to heal over.

While the procedure is straightforward, it is essential to take certain precautions before and after the treatment to ensure optimal results. Before the treatment, you should avoid applying any creams or lotions on the area to be treated. Additionally, it is advisable to inform the practitioner if you have any underlying skin conditions or if you are on any medications that could affect the healing process.

After the skin tag has been removed, it’s important to keep the treated area clean and dry. Avoid picking at the lesion as it heals to prevent any potential infection or scarring. Applying a gentle, unscented moisturizer can help soothe the skin as it recovers. If you notice any signs of infection, such as increased redness, swelling, or discharge, contact your healthcare provider promptly.

Furthermore, although cryotherapy is highly effective, some individuals might require a follow-up session if the skin tag does not fully detach or if there are multiple lesions. Your healthcare provider will guide you on the need for additional treatments based on your specific case.

Overall, cryotherapy is a quick and minimally invasive method for removing skin tags, offering a high success rate with minimal discomfort and downtime. Remember to follow all post-procedure care instructions and attend any scheduled follow-up appointments to ensure the best outcome for your skin health.

In addition to cryotherapy, there are other methods available for removing skin tags, such as excision, cauterization, and laser removal. Each method has its own benefits and may be more suitable depending on the size, location, and number of skin tags. It’s crucial to consult with a dermatologist to determine the most appropriate treatment for your specific condition. They can provide a thorough evaluation and recommend the best course of action, ensuring that the procedure is tailored to your needs and minimizes any potential risks. Regardless of the method chosen, maintaining good skincare practices and monitoring your skin for any new lesions is essential for long-term skin health.
