Skin Tag Removal

We use a technique called Thermolysis. The combination of heat and electric current very quickly removes the unwanted skin tag.
Does it hurt to remove a skin tag?
There is very little pain involved in the removal of skin tags. For most clients the tag is removed so quickly that the discomfort last for 20-30 seconds. Healing time is about 24-48 hours depending on its size and location.
