Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags (medically known as acrochordon), are small growths on the skin that are benign, colorless and yet can, depending on location, cause some discomfort.
For instance, if you have a skin tag located along your neckline and you commonly where necklaces, the chain could continuously rub against the skin tag causing irritation. Also, people tend to have them removed for appearance’s sake, to feel better about how they look. We specialize in fast and painless skin tag removal.
Common Areas for Skin Tags to Occur
People can get skin tags anywhere. Often patients come to us for skin tag removal because the skin tag is causing discomfort or because it is readily visible. Some of the most common places from which we’ve removed skin tags: eyelids, armpits, neck, breast area and groin area. Generally, in those areas in which skin rubs against skin, these acrochordon can and will occur.
Types of Skin Tag Removal Treatments
Not all skin tags have to be removed; we suggest that if it is causing irritation or if it bothers you from a cosmetic standpoint that you consult with a dermatology provider about having your skin tags removed. A quick and relatively painless treatment, we can treat your skin tags in our office. The main treatment options for skin tags are freezing the tag with liquid nitrogen or using surgical scissors. The type of procedure we use will usually depend on your skin tag size and location. If your skin tag is bothering you, book an appointment with one of our dermatology providers to have it removed.
