What are skin tags?
Skin tags are common, non-cancerous growths that tend to occur as people age. They are connected to the skin by a stalk and are commonly found in the underarms, around the neck, eyelids, under the breasts, groin, and thighs.
Although they are not dangerous and do not require removal, they can be unsightly and irritating.
How are skin tags diagnosed?
An exam by a dermatologist is frequently all that is needed.
What are the treatment options for skin tags?
- Minor surgical removal
- Freezing with liquid nitrogen
What can you expect?
Before any procedure, you will have a consultation with our expert cosmetic dermatologists. The physician will listen to you, perform a thorough evaluation, and provide you an individualized treatment plan to address your specific needs and concerns.
Any skin tag that is unsightly or causing irritation can be removed with almost no down time. Most patients can resume normal activities the next day. Because skin tags are benign (non-cancerous) growths, insurance companies often will not pay for their removal. Often there is an out-of-pocket cost, that is not covered by insurance, associated with the removal of skin tags.
Is the treatment of skin tags safe?
All procedures carry some risk. However, complications from treatment procedures for skin tags are uncommon when performed by board-certified cosmetic dermatologists.
