Skin Tag Removal: Advanced Electrolysis for Permanently Removing Skin Tags

What Are Skin Tags, And How To Remove Them?

Skin tags are small benign growths of the skin, typically occurring on the neck, armpits and eyelids. They may be caused by friction from clothing or jewellery, a viral infection of the skin or an allergy to certain materials such as nickel in jewellery.


There are many ways to remove these pesky little bumps from your body, from home remedies to medical treatments. CoLaz is one company that offers advanced electrolysis for permanently removing skin tags in just a few minutes.

What Do Skin Tags Look Like?

Skin tags are soft, skin coloured bumps that usually occur on the neck and armpits. They look like small nipples or warts made of fat tissue.


Some people mistake them for ordinary moles or freckles, but they are different in structure and texture to those types of benign lesions. Skin tags typically have a short stem that can be seen, and they are soft to touch.


Skin tags can occur anywhere on the body, but most typically appear in areas of friction such as between clothing or jewellery. They usually form clusters, often around two to four skin tags at a time.


The appearance of these bumps is similar for everyone, with just slight variations depending on their skin type.


Skin Tag Removal Around The Groin Area?

Skin tags around the groin area are usually caused by friction between skin folds while wearing tight clothes or underwear. Skin tags around the groin area are prevalent in men.

What Are The Different Types Of Skin Tags

Skin tags can be either pedunculated or sessile, where they form with other structures on the body. The most well-known example of a pedunculated (fixed) tag occurs underneath an armpit and attaches to the skin.


On the other hand, Sessile skin tags have a stalk that is not attached to anything and is usually caused by friction or irritation of some sort but can also be related to contact dermatitis such as eczema in children.


Interestingly enough, there are differences between how men's and women's skin react to skin tags. Sessile (non-attached) tags are more common in women, while pedunculated skin tags mainly affect men, particularly those with allergies to nickel found in jewellery or clothing.


What Causes A Person To Develop Skin Tags

Skin tags are usually caused by friction from something pressing against the skin, such as trousers. A viral infection or allergy can also cause them. People use many home remedies to remove skin tags, but this is not recommended as they often cause the immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues in the body.


A more permanent option for removing these soft, benign growths from your body is through advanced electrolysis offered by CoLaz.

How Advanced Electrolysis Work On Skin Tags

Advanced electrolysis is a highly effective method for removing skin tags that have been in use since 1875. It takes just minutes to permanently remove these small benign growths from your body, with patients typically enjoying 100% success rates and no post-procedure complications.


The procedure involves a high-frequency current being passed through the skin to destroy the tissue that forms these soft, benign fat tissue growths. This is done with needles inserted into each tag and performed on any part of your body where there are skin tags.


It may sound scary, but this method has been used for over 130 years and is one of the most effective ways to remove these small benign growths permanently.


What Are The Benefits Of Advanced Electrolysis

The procedure is quick, relatively painless and has no downtime afterwards. The effects can be seen immediately, with changes lasting for many years after treatment - sometimes up to a lifetime!


You will also find that you can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure with no need for time off work or school.


The best thing about this type of treatment is that it's permanent, and no side effects result from treatments. You don't have to keep coming back and having more procedures like some other methods, which may not be effective.

What Is The Cost

The average cost for this procedure ranges from £159 depending on how many tags you require treatment for and where in the world you are located. This price includes a consultation, removal of all skin tags (pedunculated or sessile), aftercare recommendations, and follow up appointments.


What To Expect

You will need a consultation before the procedure, during which time your skin tags and medical history will be assessed. This is included in the overall fee, so there are no extra costs after the treatment has been done. You can either come into our clinic or call us over the phone to get an appointment.


Patients must have a follow-up appointment after treatment to assess how they are feeling post-procedure and check for any abnormalities.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Causes Skin Tags To Develop?

Skin tags are usually caused by friction from something pressing against the skin, such as trousers. A viral infection or allergy can also cause them. People use many home remedies to remove skin tags, but this is not recommended as they often cause the immune system to attack healthy cells and tissues in the body.

A more permanent option for removing these soft, benign growths from your body is through advanced electrolysis offered by CoLaz.

How Many Types Of Skin Tags Exist?
There are two types of skin tags, pedunculated and sessile. Pedunculated growths will be attached to the underlying tissue by a narrow stalk or stem, which may break off, leaving behind an inflamed, red dot where it was once connected. On the other hand, Sessile tags tend to stick out from under the surface of your skin.
Are Men And Women Affected Differently By Different Types Of Skin Tags?

No, there are no differences between men and women in terms of skin tags. They can develop on any body part where you have hair follicles - including the face, neck, armpits and breasts.

The only difference is that they tend to affect more women than men due to their anatomy and lifestyle factors such as shaving underarms, wearing tighter clothing and using deodorant.

What Is An Effective Treatment For Removing These Benign Growths From Our Body Permanently With Minimal Side Effects Such As Pain Or Downtime?

One of the most effective treatments for removing skin tags is electrolysis, which has been around since 1875 and remains one of the best methods in use.


This treatment can be used anywhere on your body where you have these growths with no need to take time off work or school as it's quick and relatively painless with minimal side effects.

Do Skin Tags Hurt?
Skin tags don't hurt - you may feel a slight pinching or tingling sensation if the skin tag is close to your armpit. The procedure itself also doesn't have any pain as it can be done without anaesthesia and localised numbing cream, which means there's no downtime afterwards, so you'll be able to go back to your day-to-day life as usual.
Can Toothpaste Remove Skin Tags?

Yes, toothpaste can be used to remove skin tags. It uses the same principle as other home remedies that are not recommended for eliminating these benign growths from your body.


Toothpaste is a mild abrasive and, when applied daily for up to two weeks, will cause enough irritation within the cells on top of or next to the skin tag, which will cause it to fall off.

What Happens If You Pinch Off A Skin Tag?

If you pinch off a skin tag, the risk of infection is higher because there's no way to clean out any bacteria or dirt that could potentially be on top.


This can lead to inflammation and pus formation from the wound, so we recommend that patients get in touch with their GP for further advice if they're considering this option.

What Is The Cost Of Skin Tag Removal?
The cost of this treatment ranges from £159 depending on how many tags you require treatment for and where in the world you are located. This price includes a consultation, removal of all skin tags (pedunculated or sessile), aftercare recommendations, and follow up appointments.
