Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags are small growths of normal. Skin tags often grow on a short stalk or stem. They tend to form in places where the skin rubs together, such as the armpit, the neck, under the breasts, or in the groin area. They become symptomatic when caught on jewelry or rubbed by clothing. Sometimes they become twisted on their blood supply and turn red or black.

Most skin tags don’t require treatment; however, treatment is indicated if lesions cause discomfort or if the patient desires removal for cosmetic reasons. You will get a few Lidocaine injections that will sting. This doesn’t take long and you will feel nothing further during the procedure. Removal can be done by excision (cutting) by scalpel or surgical scissors, or by freezing using liquid nitrogen. New lesions, rather than recurrences, may occur in predisposed areas.
