Skin tags are small, soft, skin-coloured growths that hang off the skin and look a bit like warts.
Usually found on the neck, armpits, around the groin, or under the breasts, they are very common.
Skin tags are harmless, don’t usually cause pain or discomfort and can vary in colour and size – from a few millimetres up to 5cm wide.
Skin tag removal is regarded as cosmetic surgery, which is rarely available through the NHS
Most NHS services now see the removal of Skin Tags as a ‘Procedure of Limited Clinical Value’
During your consultation our clinician will discuss with you how your skin tag will be removed.
Cauterisation is the most effective removal method for skin tags, by freezing and removing the lesion.
Our clinicians can remove multiple lesions in your appointment. If you need longer than the booked appointment time, we will assist you in booking a further appointment at a time convenient to you.
The cost of multiple removals will be confirmed to you before your procedure starts, there are no hidden costs.
Our booking team and clinicians are dedicated to ensuring you don’t incur any unnecessary costs when arranging your procedure.
We offer an enquiry triage process allowing you to use the enquiry form below to upload a photograph of your lumps and bumps. We will then advise you which of our clinicians you need to see, based on the complexity of your case.

Our consultations start at £89.00 and our clinician will advise you of the cost of removal during your appointment. There is no hidden costs and you are not obligated to proceed with your procedure. Skin tag removal procedures start from £60.00 depending on the size and location.
