If you have unsightly skin tags that are causing you discomfort or affecting your confidence, cryotherapy may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Cryotherapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves freezing the skin tags with liquid nitrogen, causing them to fall off naturally.
What are Skin Tags?
Skin tags are small, flesh-colored growths that commonly appear on the neck, underarms, eyelids, and other areas where skin rubs against skin. Although they are harmless, they can be irritating and may affect your self-esteem, particularly if they are in visible areas.
The Benefits of Cryotherapy
Cryotherapy is a preferred method for skin tag removal due to its numerous benefits. Firstly, it is a quick and relatively painless procedure that can be performed in our clinic. The liquid nitrogen freezes the skin tag, causing it to turn white and then fall off within a few days.
Secondly, cryotherapy is a safe procedure with minimal risk of scarring or infection. Unlike other methods such as cutting or burning, cryotherapy precisely targets the skin tag without damaging the surrounding healthy skin. This makes it an ideal option for those who are concerned about scarring.
During the cryotherapy procedure, your pharmacist will use a special device to apply liquid nitrogen directly to the skin tag. You may feel a freezing or burning sensation, but this should subside quickly. The treatment usually takes just a few minutes, depending on the number and size of the skin tags.
After cryotherapy, it is normal for the treated area to become red and swollen. This will usually subside within a few days, and a scab may form before the skin tag falls off. It is important to avoid picking or scratching the area to prevent infection and scarring.
