Skin Tags

Skin Tags
Skin tags are generally harmless growths which may effect confidence for cosmetic reasons. Skin tags are usually found where there are folds in the skin or where clothing can rub on the skin.

Treatments for Skin Tags

Skin tags appear as lumps on the skin and develop with age, mostly under folds of the skin like the armpit or where the edges of clothing can irritate the skin, from a build up of collagen and vessels.

Skin tags develop a root or stem beneath the skin and though they are typically harmless, they may cause discomfort when irritated by clothing or the rubbing of the skin.

Skin tags can be removed by your doctor with our PlexR device to restore a smooth texture to the skin and reduce any further irritation from clothing.

SYMPTOMS of Skin Tags

Skin tags appear as small lumps of skin and are typically the same colour as your skin. They are usually found where skin rubs against skin like around the armpits and behind the knees, or where clothing can rub against the skin like the neck.


CAUSES of Skin Tags

  • rubbing of skin on skin
  • irritation from clothing

Prevention of Skin Tags

Skin tags can be prevented with a healthy and calorie-controlled diet, exercise to reduce excess skin and chafing to avoid irritation from skin rubbing on skin. It is also important to keep skin dry to avoid the rubbing of excess skin.

"I simply cannot rate this place highly enough. I’d give it 10 stars if I could. All the staff at Body-vie are friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable. Dr Weber is someone with whom I trust implicitly. I went to another local aesthetics clinic before this one for a consultation and walked out feeling disheartened and very confused, I was made to feel like I needed to spend a lot of cash in order to get the desired result.
