Skin tags can be removed using electrolysis . There are a number of different methods depending on the size, behaviour and location and behaviour of the tag.
Please confirm the diagnosis with your GP before booking an appointment.
Before the procedure you will be asked to provide a photograph of the skin tag(s). Please check below whether there are any reasons why you should not be suitable for electrolysis.
