Skin Tags treatment with Thermavein and Hyfrecator
In the Henley Clinic, Thermavein is our primary treatment for skin tags.
The Thermavein as with thread and spider veins, we use a nickel probe and this cuts off the blood supply to skin tag, the skin tag will fade and fall off over the next 7-14 days. A further check-up appointment with the practitioner will be required after approximately 2 weeks. Treatment is relatively painless and the sensation is similar to hair being plucked. Some Skin Tags can sometimes be a little more difficult to remove completely, so these may need to softly cauterised with a medical Hyfrecator, again this is relatively painless.
With Thermavein there is no risk of skin damage and/or discolouration and any removed skin tags will NOT return.
