Skin Tag Freezing Vs TagBand

Skin Tag Freezing

Skin tag removal by the method of freezing is a procedure normally carried out by a doctor using liquid nitrogen. This is carefully applied to the skin tag by using a swab or by a spray. There may be a small blister once the skin tag has been removed but this normally heals on its own. In the UK, the NHS classifies skin tag removal as a cosmetic treatment and generally a local GP will not treat or remove skin tags.

There are at home canisters available to purchase that are more cost efficient. If using a do it yourself at home freezing treatment method the user should be advised to be very careful to avoid the surrounding skin area, due to the discomfort that can be caused.

You may experience some discomfort when using this method to remove skin tags however the pain often subsides quite quickly. You should only need to apply one application to the skin tag to remove it. Skin tags that are very close to the skin could be awkward to apply the formula without causing irritation to the surrounding skin area.

How does freezing work?

Skin tags need oxygenated blood to survive. By freezing the tissue, it no longer has the blood required for survival and will start to die. Following treatment, the skin tag should turn black in colour as it begins to die, eventually it will fall off once its dead. This will normally happen within 2 to 3 weeks of having the freezing treatment.  If using a home treatment method, the surrounding skin area might go a red colour and feel sensitive but this normally fades after several days. Covering up the surrounding skin area before application might help reduce any negative effects. Having someone help during the application process would also be advisable.

TagBand skin tag removal kit

TagBand is an at home skin tag removal kit with a high success rate. It removes skin tags by use of a small band applied close to the base of the skin tag. Its clever innovative design significantly reduces the skin tags blood supply with an average skin tag removal time of around 7 days. Once the band is applied to the skin tag it will start working from the moment it is applied making the kit very user friendly with minimal effort required.

Why it works

For a skin tag to be treated and removed, its blood supply which is vital to the skin tags growth and survival needs to be significantly reduced. Once the oxygenated blood is reduced to a significant level the skin tag will start to change colour often turning black as it begins to die before dropping off.

How to use:

The band is applied using the supplied device and when attached to the skin tag it retracts back to its original size. Once the band has been attached to the skin tag it starts to significantly reduce its blood supply. After several days, the skin tag will start to shrink and change colour. This is its final stage before removal and within a few days it will fall off leaving only a small blemish.
