All About Skin Tag Removal Consultations
Skin tags are small, harmless outgrowths of normal skin that are soft and skin-colored. Their exact cause is unknown however, they generally grow in areas where the skin folds and rubs together or where collars and necklaces provide continuous friction.
We provide comfortable local anesthetic cream or injection to make the procedure quick and comfortable. Your skin tag can be easily removed with electrocautery or liquid nitrogen.

How it works
How do Skin Tag Removal Consultations Work?
Book to see the physician. A physician evaluation takes a few minutes. Your tag(s) will be frozen and removed with cautery. Sometimes, if the tag is large a suture or two will be required. This is a simple procedure, and should heal quickly.

Before the Consultation
Book a consultation with a $125 deposit to secure your booking.
During the Consultation
During the consultation we recommend electrocautery for the skin tag removal . This process is easy and comfortable. The areas to be treated are first injected with the anesthetic, Xylocaine, or a numbing cream is applied and allowed to take effect for 10 - 20 minutes. The tag is burned at the root with several touches of the tip of the electrocautery handpiece. The tag itself will turn dry and black and may either be removed immediately or will fall off on its own within about a week.
After the Second Consultation
If you have a medical procedure to remove a skin tag, our instructions may include keeping the wound clean for at least 48 hours, and then gently washing the area with soap and water. There may be a tiny mark/scar left where the skin tag was, particularly if the area has also darkened from the irritation caused by years of friction. You may look at other treatments for scar reduction. Your doctor may also schedule a follow-up appointment to check the wound and remove any stitches, if they were needed.
