Skin tags are harmless, small growths on the skin often found on parts of the body where friction is present, such as the neck, armpits, groin, under the breasts and even sometimes the eyelids. They vary in size but are often only a few millimetres in diameter. There are a number of options to remove skin tags. From our Leamington Spa clinic we offer skin tag removal with the DEKA SmartXide Touch CO2 laser with minimum to no discomfort or scarring.

Skin tags are a common skin concern and can appear unsightly, often appearing on exposed areas of the body, such as the neck, eyelids and armpits. Found as small, soft, stalks protruding out of the skin, skin tags can appear on all skin types and are completely harmless. Skin tags do not usually cause pain, however discomfort and bleeding can occur if clothing or jewellery gets caught on them.

Whilst there is no real cause for skin tags, they are most often found in older men and women, or those who are overweight. Skin tags are made up of loose collagen fibres, the natural occurring protein responsible for healthy joints and skin elasticity.

How do skin tags form? They form in skin folds where the skin rubs against itself. Normally skin tags do not disappear without treatment which is why we offer skin tag removal in Leamington Spa with the DEKA SmartXide Touch CO2 ablative laser.

Skin tags can be removed quickly with very little downtime. Unlike surgery where cutting occurs, the laser involves no bleeding or slicing of the skin. There is an option to freeze or burn the skin tag away; however patients risk their skin being left with hyperpigmentation following this, causing the skin to look discoloured. Skin tag removal treatments are not available on the NHS as they are most often removed for cosmetic reasons. You should never attempt to remove skin tags yourself at home, please take the advice of a medical professional.

The DEKA SmartXide Touch CO2 laser is able to remove the skin tag in a matter of minutes without harming surrounding skin tissue. It is even safe for skin tag removal around the eyes.

Prior to treatment, a medical consultation and assessment is needed to ensure the skin lesion is not suspicious. You will also receive all of the relevant aftercare information and the estimated number of sessions needed to remove the skin tag. After the go ahead from our laser specialist, we apply a numbing cream to make the treatment more comfortable. Depending on the number of skin tags to be removed, the procedure will take between 5 and 15 minutes. We aim to remove the entire lesion and the roots during treatment, to ensure no regrowth. Removal is suitable for all skin types. There is no downtime following treatment so you are able to return to work and normal daily activities straight away. You may experience some slight swelling or redness which will subside in the days after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

We can remove a number of skin tags during your session with our laser practitioner.

The recovery time is very minimal. Normally the area will appear slightly red for a few days following treatment.

Treatments are very simple and quick so you do not need to prepare for the procedure in any way.

Sun protection should be applied if you go outside and the area is not covered. If you are concerned, please contact our clinic.

Skin tags can affect both men and women, and there are some risk factors, such as being overweight or having type 2 diabetes.

Skin tags will sometimes fall off on their own if the blood supply is cut off. However, in most cases they will need to be removed by an expert.

As with any aesthetic, surgical or laser procedure, there is a small risk of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation, meaning the skin appears darker or lighter in the area being treated. Scarring is also possible but rare. Risks are minimised by using appropriate and high quality equipment. If scarring occurs, Eve Clinics specialise in scar removal too and patients are invited for treatment. Please see the scar management page here.

The DEKA CO2 laser is a non-surgical, non-invasive method of removing skin tags. Promoting the fastest recovery times and the best cosmetic results, you are able to avoid the risks associated with other methods of skin tag removal. Freezing skin tags can result in an increased risk of hyperpigmentation, for example.

We have very experienced laser practitioners who remove skin tags quickly and painlessly. We only invest in the best technology to provide the best cosmetic results for our patients.

Before and After



Sebaceous Cyst Removal Using CO2 Laser

Skin Tag Removal Using CO2 Laser

I went to Eve clinics to get a skin tag and DPNs removed. I spoke to Florina and had a consultation with the doctor and they were both really nice and professional. Everything was done the same day and she called me after to check up on me and how I was healing. The skin healed nicely with no scars. They also have very good prices too. Would recommend 5/5.
