Unit 8.20 – Skin Tag Treatment Protocol Copy

Skin Tags

Skin tags are very common and harmless small, soft skin growths. They tend to appear on the eyelids, neck, armpits, groin folds and under breasts. Removing a skin tag cannot cause more to grow. When removing skin tags you have two possible approaches:

1. Apply the electric arc (dotting) on top of the skin tag and work all the way down until you have almost reached the base of it (skin level). Then reduce the power settings to get the greatest precision. Continue the carbonization of the skin tag until you have levelled it off with the surrounding skin. Remember to wipe off the carbon residues from time to time to allow you to see the level you have reached.

2. In case the skin tag you are removing is particularly large you can apply the arc (dotting) to the base of the neck of the skin tag close to skin level. Once the skin tag has become detached, you can then level off the remaining skin tag using the scanning technique.
