What is a skin tag?
A skin tag is a growth on the skin that is benign but can be unsightly or embarrassing for patients. Therefore, we offer removal as one of our methods of offering patients more youthful skin. Skin tag removal is often requested by patients as an aesthetic procedure, which is not typically covered by medical insurance.
How is a skin tag removed?
Skin tags are removed in a variety of ways, depending on their location and size.
- Freezing – cryotherapy is a method of permanently removing skin tags with the use of liquid nitrogen. Patients may experience slight stinging during this method, and the skin tag will fall off on its own within a week or so.
- Excision – cutting off the skin tag is another procedure that can immediately remove it. The skin is numbed for ultimate comfort.
- Cauterize – another method of skin tag removal is cauterization, which is also known as “burning.” The layers of the skin tag will be removed, and the skin’s color will fade over time. This may be achieved with a special device such as a laser and is done right in the dermatologist’s office.
