Skin Tag Removal
A skin tag is a small tag or growth of skin that can appear anywhere on the body. They are most commonly found on the armpit, chest and back or anywhere where friction may take place. They often occur in small groups or clusters.
We use cryotherapy to treat skin tags, which removes the tag by destroying it with extreme cold. This treatment is highly effective, leaving smooth, tag-free skin.
