Skin Tag Removal
How Does It Work?
Skin tags are tiny, benign pouches of skin that occur where skin continuously rubs against clothing, or continuous skin to skin contact. Although skin tags are typically harmless, many people choose to remove them for cosmetic reasons or because they cause discomfort.
Even Though skin tags are not typically a serious health concern, to avoid infection, scarring, and unnecessary pain, they should be treated by a physician. There are two primary ways your doctor will treat skin tabs. The physician may surgically remove the skin tab after applying a local anesthetic. Or, the physician may decide to freeze off the skin tab with liquid nitrogen. Regardless of the means, skin tab removal is a very low risk procedure. Typically, no follow-up treatment is necessary after the initial procedure.
