Cauterizing skin tags is removal technique that works immediately. Skin tags are harmless, but, they don’t look good, and they can be a nuisance. Whatever your reason(s) for wanting to remove skin tags, there are some proven ways to do it.

The area will feel tender when you’re done. Make sure that the area is clean and sterile.

It will take a  week or two for the skin tag removal area to heal. Obviously, this will depend on the size of the skin tag that’s been removed and your level of precision.

You’ll get a small scab that will gradually heal and fall off. You need to be careful not disturb the scab as this could lead to scarring. 


Tips for Faster Healing

Using these options will expedite the healing process:

Antibiotic Ointment

Apply an antibiotic cream after the procedure has been completed. This will help to prevent an infection.

No matter how clean and sterile you might try to make things, germs are everywhere. Follow the antibiotic cream instructions. This involves applying a topical cream once or twice daily for at least a week. It will help reduce any redness or inflammation if you have sensitive skin.


Tea Tree Oil

Essential oils help moisturize the skin and promote healing. But, one of the best is tea tree oil. It has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.

It has long been used by surgeons as an antiseptic. This keeps wounds clean and encourages the growth of new, healthy skin cells.



If you want an easy way to heal your skin tag faster, apply a dab of Vaseline. While Vaseline doesn’t have any healing properties, it can help to lock in moisture. When your skin is properly moisturized, it will naturally heal faster.
