How does Lamprobe skin tag removal Work in Leamington Spa and Coventry?

Treatment is usually tolerated very well without topical anaesthetic for small tags or with topical anaesthetic for large skin tags or fibromas. It feels like a warm pinching sensation, but the treatment is very quick, often taking mere seconds to fully treat each skin tag.
How long does Lamprobe skin tag removal take in Leamington Spa and Coventry?
We book a minimum 30-minute session for 1-5 skin tags and up to an hour usually for 10 or more skin tags or skin lesions, however, treating each lesion is very quick and most of the appointment is usually skin prep and post treatment care.
How Does the skin look after Lamprobe Skin Tag Removal?
After skin tag removal, the area at the base of the skin tag will form a small crust which will be left to heal naturally. This can take anywhere from 3 to 14 days depending on the size.
What are the aftercare instructions for skin tag removal?
After your treatment you will be instructed to leave the area to naturally heal. You will be advised not to pick any areas where you have had skin tags or fibromas removed. We also advise that you do not submerge the treatment area in water until it is fully healed to avoid infection or dislodging the crust prematurely. You can shower as usual after 24 – 48 hours. You will also be asked to avoid strong perfumed products, make up, and deodorants in the area for 48 hours. And, of course, avoid UV exposure in the area for at least 6 months unless using a high factor sunscreen.
How many sessions will I need?
Occasionally, a skin tag will require more than one treatment on delicate areas or on the face if it is advised by your clinician. You may also require more than one sitting if there are many skin tags to treat.
Prior to skin tag removal, you will need to complete a medical history form and sign a consent form for each session. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have during the consultation process.
If your medical condition or medication changes, you must let your clinician know.
