Skin Tag Removal

Skin Tag Removal in Hitchin, Hertfordshire

Skin tags, medically known as acrochordons, are small, benign growths that appear most often on areas of the body where the skin folds. While harmless, they can be a source of discomfort or self-consciousness, leading many individuals to seek removal options.

What are Skin Tags?

Skin tags are typically flesh-coloured or slightly darker and hang off the skin by a thin stalk. They are more common in adults, and their exact cause is unknown, although they tend to develop in areas of friction such as the neck, underarms, and under the breasts.

CryoPen Treatment for Skin Tags

SkinInspire uses the innovative CryoPen device to safely and effectively treat skin tags. The CryoPen uses cryotherapy, which applies extreme cold to destroy unwanted cells. This highly precise method allows us to target only the skin tag without damaging the surrounding skin.

How CryoPen Works

The CryoPen emits a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure, which allows the clinician to work with millimetre precision. This destroys the tissue by freezing the inter-cellular fluid, forming ice shards and crystals which rupture the cell membrane, thereby destroying the cell.

What to Expect

CryoPen treatment is a quick, pain-free procedure typically completed within 15 minutes. A blister will form within 24 hours of treatment, naturally resolving over the following days, leaving a smoother, tag-free skin surface.


Following the treatment, it’s normal for a blister to form within 24 hours. If it pops, clean it and apply a plaster. We recommend applying Savlon, Sudocrem, or Germolene cream on the area twice daily.

Why Choose CryoPen?

CryoPen offers a safe and effective solution for skin tag removal. Treating each skin tag is a quick procedure, typically taking just a few seconds. The treatment is virtually painless, and there’s no downtime—you can return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure.
