SKIN TAGS REMOVAL

What causes Skin tags & why choose Skin tags removal

  • An affordable skin-care procedure.
  • It takes a matter of minutes (if not seconds) and can often be tacked on to other in-office procedures.
  • A skin tag occurs when clusters of collagen and blood vessels get trapped inside thicker layers of skin. As they are common in skin creases or folds.
  • It might be majorly caused by skin rubbing against skin.
  • It is not so much of a health concern but you might want to get skin tags off you for cosmetic reasons, discomfort and irritation.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A skin tag, also known as an acrochordon or a fibroepithelial polyp, is a benign skin growth that protrudes from the skin, typically on a thin stalk. It’s noncancerous, comprised of normal skin tissue and fat, and can occur in places where skin rubs against skin—such as on the eyelids, under the neck, or in the armpits. In women, the tags are also common around the vulva and vagina and under the breasts.

Genetics plays a role in the development of skin tags, so you may be more likely to get them if one of your parents has them. They’re also linked to medical conditions such as obesity, pregnancy, diabetes, and HPV (according to a 2008 study).

Skin tags can sometimes be confused for moles and warts. (However, they’re not interchangeable and need to be treated differently.) The most obvious identifying factor of a skin tag is the peduncle, a small stalk that connects the tag to your body.

They can be annoying, but tags don’t typically pose any harm or danger to you or your skin. The exception is when they’re in an area of the body that gets a lot of friction, where they can become irritated and painful when they rub against clothing or jewelry.

    THE CONSULTATION

    We will go through your medical history and address any concerns and questions that you may have and discuss the risks and benefits of the treatment options with you.

    After your dermatologist burns, freezes, or cuts off the skin tag in question, it’ll scab over. “I encourage my patients to keep the area clean with mild soap and water and then apply either Vaseline or a moisturizing cream, such as CeraVe,” says Dr. Reedy. You can then apply makeup over it, if you want to disguise the area.

    Don’t pick at the scab—it protects the wound while healing and minimizes the chances of scarring.

    The scab will flake off on its own once healing is complete, usually within 10 to 14 days.
