Most NHS services now see skin tag removal as a “procedure of limited clinical value” and purely cosmetic, and as such, you are rarely able to get the procedure through the NHS. Summerfield Healthcare do not require NHS GP referral.
If you would like your skin tag removed and would like to be seen quickly, enquire with us today and we can provide you with a cost of removal.
Although there are products on the market for DIY skin tag removal, you should be very cautious of these and always consult a doctor. Skin tags usually need to be removed by cauterising, freezing, or with minor surgery – none of these procedures should be undertaken at home or by anyone without formal medical training.
During your consultation, our clinician will discuss with you how your skin tag will be removed. The decision will be made based on the nature and location of the skin tag so that we can offer you the fastest and easiest procedure with the best results.
Cauterisation is the most effective and common removal method for removing skin tags. Liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the cells of the skin tag, blocking blood flow, and causing the tag to naturally fall away.
Our clinicians can remove multiple skin tags in one appointment so you often won’t need to book on multiple occasions. If we do however find that you need longer than the booked appointment time, we will also assist you in booking a further appointment at a time convenient to you.
During your initial consultation, your consultant will look at any affected area and speak to you about the possible treatment options. The cost of multiple removals will be confirmed to you before your procedure starts, and there are no hidden costs.
You can choose to have certain skin tags removed and to leave others and our clinicians are happy to help you in deciding what is best for you.
