WHAT IS A SKIN TAG?
Skin tags are harmless and benign skin growths that are commonly found on the neck, axilla region, under the bra area and in the groin. They appear in various colours, from flesh to dark brown. They may be just slightly raised, or they will have a stalk or neck like a mushroom.
If you have developed several skin tags you may have a genetic predisposition as this condition often runs in families. They can develop at any age but can be more common in areas of friction, in pregnancy, if you are overweight or if you are diabetic.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM SKIN TAG TREATMENT

SKIN TAG REMOVAL AFTERCARE
Treatment with electrolysis is quick and easy, very successful and very little evidence is left of the skin tags presence. Simply keep the area clean and you may want to bandage it if it’s in an area that could rub or chaff.
It’s normal for a scab to form, however, this will come off on its own after a few weeks.
