Skin Tag Removal

These small yet bothersome soft pieces of squishy skin that stick out and can get snagged on clothing or jewelry are simple to remove. Skin tags commonly grow on the eyelids, neck, armpits, and groin. Whether you simply don’t like their appearance or they cause discomfort, our advanced technicians can efficiently remove unwanted skin tags with little to no downtime.

Get The Facts

Our Skin Tag Removal treatment targets these common and harmless lesions that appear to hang off the skin. The procedure uses Electrocautery to remove the tag. The electric probe is used to cauterize the base of a skin tag in quick bursts. The tissue may fall off during the procedure, go hard and grey, and/or fall off in days to follow. There will be redness and irritation in the treated area, which will subside quickly, and it may scab as the new, healthy skin heals.

+ Is it a Skin Tag, a mole, or a wart?

Skin tags can easily be mistaken for moles or warts, which are also common skin growths. However, Skin tags are easily distinguished by how they hang from the skin with only a narrow stalk keeping them in place. Aside from that, they’re smooth and flesh-colored. Skin tags are often a few millimeters across.
