Skin tag removal
Skin tags are benign skin growths that often look like small balls dangling from the skin. Medically speaking, skin tags are completely harmless. However, they often pose a cosmetic concern as they can appear on areas like the eyelids, upper chest, buttocks, groin, neck, and arm pits. Skin tags can vary in number from a single tag to a cluster of hundreds.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR skin tag removal?
Men and women of all ages are equally at risk of developing skin tags. Even children and toddlers can develop skin tags under their arms and neck. Adults and children who have skin tags that cause pain, embarrassment or poor self image are likely good candidates for skin tag removal.
HOW are skin tagS removed?
Skin tags can be removed in several different ways, including:
- Freezing the tag off with liquid nitrogen
- Burning the tag using electric cautery
- Cutting the tag off using medical scissors
If the skin tag is small, there will be relatively no pain. It might feel like a small pinprick. For larger skin tags, a topical anesthetic might be used to prevent you from feeling any pain during removal.
