At the Aesthetic Derma clinic, Dr Nikolaidou combines medical and cosmetic dermatology to address certain skin concerns, including skin tags. Skin tags can be treated with various methods including cryotherapy (freezing the skin with liquid nitrogen spray) or diathermy (heating the tissue with electrical current). Our experienced doctor will guide you on the most appropriate treatment for you, according to your needs.

Prior to the treatment

Our experienced doctor will identify the areas that require treatment. The skin will be thoroughly cleaned and prepared for the procedure.

During the Treatment

Depending on the procedure, the doctor will either freeze the area with liquid nitrogen or heat the area with an electrical current by using a sterile probe. Generally, 2 to 3 cycles of freezing are necessary to treat skin tags. The procedure takes about 20 – 30 minutes.

After the Treatment

Both cryotherapy and diathermy are well tolerated treatments. Following cryotherapy, any redness, swelling, blistering or discomfort will settle after 2-3 days and the area treated will scab and eventually fall off. Following diathermy, any redness or swelling will settle in 2-3 hours and the area will crust and fall off in 2 days time. Treatment may be repeated after 6 weeks if further work is required. Larger lesions usually require 2-3 treatments. You should avoid touching the area pr applying any products for 24 hours after treatment to prevent infection. Specific post procedure care instructions will be given to you on the day of your visit.
