At MedAssistant we provide skin tag removal and wart removal services. Both are common skin growths that can appear anywhere on the body. A skin tag is normally small, benign growth of extra skin which is normally found where skin rubs against skin or clothing. A wart again is a small, benign growth caused by a viral infection in the top layer of the skin. While both are painless they can sometimes be unsightly and cause embarrassment. Book in today at our Glasgow Skin Tag Removal / Glasgow Wart Removal service.
MedAssistant provides 3 main methods of removing skin tags and warts. Our trained healthcare professionals will assess which one would work best for you.
This involves the use of a cold substance, such as liquid nitrogen, to freeze the growth. The cold temperature kills the cells, blocking the blood supply to the area and causing it to naturally fall off. In some cases irritation and temporary skin discoloration may occur, and further treatment may be required.
2. Excision Removal:
Treatment is carried out under a local anaesthetic and is therefore painless. The skin tag is carefully cut away using a scalpel and will be completely removed, leaving only a small white or pink scar in its place.
3. Ligation (for skin tags only):
This involves tying off the skin tag to reduce to blood/oxygen flow, the skin dies off and falls off.
