What is a skin tag?
A skin tag is best described by our team at drs skincare as a non-cancerous skin growth. It can resemble a tiny piece of hanging skin with an attached stem. They are usually found in areas of your body that rub together, such as the armpits, neck, and eyelids, though they can appear anywhere. They come in various colours, sizes, and shapes and can vary from just a few millimetres to even several centimetres in length. Skin tags, sometimes called acrochordons, are generally not bothersome. In some cases, skin tags can be associated with diabetes therefore it may be helpful to be screen for diabetes by your family phyisican.
What methods are available to remove skin tags or acrochordons?
At drs skincare, we offer a few solutions for skin tag removal. Our dermatologists can remove these non-cancerous skin growths in the following ways:
- Cryotherapy. This is a safe and effective method of skin tag removal that involves using liquid nitrogen to freeze off the growth
- Excision. A physician can also use a scalpel or scissors to cut away the skin tags
- Laser treatment. High-intensity lasers are used to heat up and break down the molecules in the tissue, effectively causing the skin tag to disappear
