Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags are small, soft, skin-coloured growths that hang off the skin. They are usually found on the neck, armpit, or under the breasts. Skin tags are formed when loose collagen fibres and blood vessels surrounded by skin. Collagen is a type of protein found throughout the body. Skin tags tend to grow in the skin folds, where the skin rubs against itself, such as on the neck, armpits or groin. This is why they tend to affect overweight people who have excess folds of skin and skin chafing. Skin tags are harmless and don’t usually cause pain or discomfort. However, you may consider having skin tags removed if they’re affecting your self-esteem, or if they snag on clothing or jewellery and bleed. 

The CO2RE laser is a safe and effective method for removing unwanted skin tags. The laser beam uses powerful energy to remove unwanted skin tags. The treatment normally takes approximately 30 minutes and requires little to no downtime with little to no discomfort.
