Skin Tag Removal

What is Skin Tag Removal ?

Skin tag removal is a common medical procedure aimed at eliminating small, benign growths on the skin’s surface. These growths, known as skin tags or acrochordons, often appear in areas where skin rubs against skin or clothing, such as the neck, armpits, groin, or under the breasts. While usually harmless, skin tags can be bothersome or cosmetically undesirable.

Methods for removing skin tags:

  1. Cryotherapy: This involves freezing the skin tag with liquid nitrogen, causing it to fall off over time.

  2. Electrosurgery: A small electrode is used to apply an electric current to the base of the skin tag, effectively burning it off.

  3. Ligation: This technique involves tying off the base of the skin tag with a sterile thread or suture, cutting off its blood supply and causing it to eventually fall off.

  4. Excision: The skin tag is simply cut off with surgical scissors or a scalpel. This method may require local anesthesia.
