Skin tag removal

About 25% of all adults will develop a skin tag. Skin tags are often age related, but they can also be caused by friction. That’s why they usually appear in areas where the body folds, such as the armpits, around the eyelids and in the groin area. All skin growths should always be checked by a doctor to ensure that the growth is benign. Once your physician determines that you have a skin tag, you can elect to have it removed during your office visit, through the use of painless freezing, burning or cutting with medical scissors. Since skin tag tissue is benign, it is not sent to the lab for analysis. If you have a growth on your skin, please contact us to schedule an appointment to have it checked to make sure it’s nothing to worry about.
