Removing skin tags with scissors or nail clippers

April 29, 2008

                   The fastest way for removing skin tags is to cut them off using nail clippers or scissors. The problem with this procedure is that it is not as safe as other methods because of the risk of bleeding and infection.

                   If you want to try it out, you’ll have to make sure you’re using disinfected scissors or nail clippers and apply a good amount of rubbing alcohol to the skin tag you want to remove. Then, after cutting the skin tag from its base, apply some peroxide using a compress to stop the bleeding.

                   Of course, this is not a suitable experience for everybody and fortunately, there are other methods for removing skin tags that involve no pain or bleeding.

Removing skin tags with surgery

April 14, 2008

      There are three surgical procedures for removing skin tags.

      One of these methods consists on freezing skin tags using liquid Nitrogen at -196°C. The tissues of the skin tags can’t survive this low temperature and they fall off immediately.

      The other way for removing skin tags consists on cauterizing (or burning) the skin tags using laser.

      Finally,  The third method consists on cutting off skin tags using a scalpel or scissors. Off course, it’s up to your doctor to determine which of these procedures is more appropriate to you.

     It is important to note here that the cost of removing skin tags with surgery is not covered by most insurance plans and that’s why many people prefer to use alternative home removal methods.
