What are Skin Tags?
In general, skin tags can be safely left alone as they are noncancerous and do not pose any medical concern. As mentioned above, however, they tend to form in inconvenient places. Skin tags are usually round or oval-shaped, and they are attached to the skin by a small stalk. The fact that they are raised off of the skin means they can catch on clothing and cause extreme discomfort in some cases.
If you are dealing with skin tags in common areas like the armpits, groin, and neck, you may have experienced zippers, necklaces, or other accessories catching on the skin tags. Other individuals are not physically bothered by skin tags, but rather are concerned with the aesthetic appearance.
Regardless of why you want your skin tags removed, you can opt for a simple, in-office procedure to take care of these pesky growths.
How Does Skin Tag Removal Work?
Skin tag removal is quick and easy in our office, and most patients do not require any anesthetic. Once the skin tag has been removed it will not grow back. You may need more than one session, however, depending on how many skin tags you need removed.
Who is a Good Candidate?
If you have a skin tag that you want removed you are a good candidate for this treatment. Our professionals can examine your skin and the growths that you would like removed and make the best recommendation.
No one is completely sure why skin tags form. Some believe it is due to friction, considering where skin tags commonly appear. Regardless, there is currently no way to prevent skin tags from forming. You can, however, effectively remove them by visiting Dr. Park Ave and discussing skin tag removal with our team of professionals.
