Removal of Skin Tags Insurance

What are skin tags?

Skin tags are composed of loose collagen fibres and blood vessels that are enclosed within the skin. They may resemble warts or raised bumps. While skin tags are a common occurrence, they are completely harmless and typically do not induce any pain or discomfort. However, they can become snagged on clothing or jewellery, leading to bleeding. Additionally, skin tags have the potential to affect one’s self-esteem.

What causes skin tags?

Skin tags can appear in both men and women, typically occurring in skin folds and creases such as the neck, armpits, groin, and under the breasts. They are more prevalent in overweight individuals, although they can also be hereditary, affect people with type 2 diabetes, or occur during pregnancy. In some instances, skin tags may even develop without any discernible cause.

How can you remove skin tags?

Skin tags do not need to be removed, but if they’re causing problems they can be removed:

  • By using heat
  • By freezing them
  • By cutting them off with a surgical blade or scissors

Why do you need Insurance for skin tag removal treatments?

Removing skin tags can sometimes lead to scarring or darkening of the skin (hyperpigmentation). These effects are usually temporary, although sometimes it can be permanent. There is also a chance of minor bleeding. While the risks and side effects are generally minor, clients can still make claims if they feel that the treatments were not carried out properly. Therefore, having insurance that covers treatments involving the removal of skin tags can provide significant benefits in safeguarding you and your business.
