Skin tags are small, flesh-coloured growths that literally ‘hang’ off the skin. They’re extremely common and, whilst typically only a few millimetres in size, they can grow up to around 5cm.
Usually found on the neck, armpits, groin, buttocks or around eyelids, skin tags are thought to occur from tight clothes that rub, or excess chafing. However, skin tags can arise for no apparent reason.
Whilst skin tags aren’t dangerous and won’t cause pain or discomfort, they can be embarrassing if large and in easily-visible areas. They also have potential to snag on clothes or jewellery, which may result in bleeding. Because of this, skin tag removal may be the best solution.
Here at Hilton Skin Clinics, we offer advanced skin tag removal using cutting-edge electrolysis or freezing treatment using the Cryopen.
During electrolysis, tags will be cauterized using a minute electrolysis needle, in which a tiny current is passed through the needle to cauterize the tag. This ensures the skin tag will not reappear once removed.
The Cryopen uses the latest compression-cooling technology to administer precise cooling using a high-pressure jet of nitrous oxide. The skin tag will be rapidly cooled and frozen, allowing practitioners to remove them within seconds.
And, in addition to skin tags, the Cryopen can be used to treat a variety of other skin lesions including warts, keratosis, fibroma and lentigo (brown patches).

Dependent on which skin tag removal treatment you opt for, treatment time and overall experience will vary.
During electrolysis, you may feel minimal discomfort but not enough to warrant anaesthetic. However, if your skin tags are especially large, anaesthetic may be needed if necessary.
Following treatment, the skin tag will ‘scab up’ and eventually fall off, leaving skin smooth and blemish-free. It’s important to allow the scab to form naturally, so you should avoid scratching or rubbing the area.
The Cryopen offers fast, pain-free treatment. You’re able to return to your normal daily activities once treatment is over, and one treatment is all that’s usually needed to remove the lesion in question.
The clinic is always spotless and has a warm inviting atmosphere. Staff members are extremely knowledgeable about all of their treatments, and they even took the time to speak to me over the phone relating to questions about my treatment before I even booked a consultation. 5 star clinic and would highly recommend to anyoneBarbara Sopata
I have had 4 treatments here for laser hair removal. The staff are extremely friendly and the product knowledge is excellent. The Treatment itself, well what can I say except… Pain FREE and after the first patch test, I noticed a significant reduction of hair.S. Iqbal
The Soprano Laser Hair removal is a virtually pain-free treatment and I am very impressed with the results so far and I am only half way through my course. Looking forward to the final results!Rizwana Ali
The staff are friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. When I arrived everything was explained to me and it was better than I had originally expected. I can’t wait for the next session of microdermabrasion!! I would now recommend them to my friends too.Kate Monterian
The clinic really give you good advice in how to look after your skin and didn’t seem too pushy when selling what I needed. I ended having the EDS Dermaroller for my face and neck. I was so worried it would be so painful but surprisingly it's not that bad at all but I did have some anaesthetic cream applied before hand.Jul K
