Skin Tags

The treatment we offer for removing skin tags is called cryotherapy (freezing).

This procedure involves applying liquid nitrogen using a small pen to the age spots to destroy the skin tags. The lesions peels off over the next couple of weeks. At that point the skin will be pink so it is essential to use sunblock. This is a treatment best saved for times when your skin won’t be exposed to sunshine.

Cryotherapy uses a jet of cold gas to remove skin tags, warts, and similar. It’s an effective and safe procedure.

Freezing is typically used on a single skin tag or a small group. The treatment may temporarily irritate the skin and poses a slight risk of permanent scarring or discoloration.


Cryotherapy starts from £150. Prices are determined by the areas that you wish to be treated.


You are advised to keep the area as dry as possible.  Showering and bathing are still permitted. You can go back to your daily activities immediately.
