How Can You Prevent Or Treat Skin Tags?
Skin tags can be prevented through detailed diet planning and regular exercise. This is because skin tags are most common in skin folds caused by weight gain. If you want to avoid skin tags forming under skin folds, keep them dry and free of moisture throughout the day to avoid friction. Also, make sure not to wear jewellery made of metals that your skin might be allergic to.
Skin tags can be removed surgically via freezing or burning by a aesthetic practitioner or professional skincare clinician. They can also be removed surgically under local anaesthetic. However, if they’re small skin tags, they can be removed at home. By tightening floss or string around a narrow-based skin tag, you can cut off the circulation to the skin tag with little to no bleeding. This only works on narrow-based skin tags though, and should not be attempted on larger ones. Always consult a aesthetic practitioner or expert before trying to remove a skin tag yourself.
