Ligation is the process of skin tag removal that involves the inhibiting the flow of blood into the skin tag and when this is done; it will grow darker and eventually fall off. This process of removing skin tags will be uncomfortable and may even cause some pain since a part of your skin will be tied off and denied the supply of blood and oxygen. The following is the process that will be taken when carrying out a ligation skin tag removal in Ogden:
The skin surrounding the skin tag will be cleaned and a sanitizer applied to help in preventing any infection from resulting out of the procedure.
A piece of thread or a dental floss that is 4 inches long will be set aside for use when tying the skin tag.
The aesthetician will drag the skin tag from the rest of the skin such that it will be easy to tie the dental floss or the thread around the base of the skin tag. The aesthetician will wrap the dental flow for a number of times so that it will be firm enough to prevent it from slipping off.
The aesthetician will provide an ointment that has antibacterial properties that you will apply every day to ensure that no infection develops on the skin.
In a few days, the skin tag will start changing its color where it will become red, then get a purple coloration and eventually turn black. This may cause some minor swelling but this should not be a cause for alarm. In one week’s time, the skin tag should have fallen off and if this does not happen, you should seek advice from the aesthetician who carried out the procedure. If you do not see any change in the color of the skin tag or there is an indication that the skin tag could be infected, you should go back to the aesthetician who carried out the procedure for review. The best way to avoid such an occurrence is to have the procedure carried out in one of the professional spas in Ogden. The aesthetician has vast experience and knows the best way of carrying out a ligation skin tag removal procedure.
