Skin Tags Removal Treatment
Your skin is the largest organ, so it’s natural that there are so many conditions that can occur. Skin tags are small, non-cancerous growths that often appear as soft, flesh-colored or slightly darker flaps of skin connected to the body by a thin stalk.
They can develop in areas of friction or folds, like the neck, underarms, or groin. Skin tags are harmless but can be bothersome, undesirable, or unattractive. They often develop due to friction between skin or clothing and can be influenced by genetics, hormones, age, and obesity.
At Dr. Prevents, skin tag removal is done by the cauterization method using anaesthesia. The skin tag removal procedure will be done in the clinic by our certified doctors. It is quick, relatively painless, and leaves minimal scarring.
How Skin Tags Removal Works?
Skin tag removal treatments involve electrocautery – our doctors will use a specialized tool that emits an electric current to heat and burn the skin tag at its base.
This process effectively severs the tag from the surrounding skin, with high-frequency electrical energy cauterizing the wound – this prevents bleeding, promotes healing, and leaves minimal scarring.
Symptoms of A Skin Tags
Here’s how you can tell if you’re suffering from skin tags:
- Skin-colored, or blends with surrounding skin
- Some may appear brown or even red that is often pedunculated
- Attached to a fleshy stalk that is slender & flexible
- Commonly found where skin rubs on skin or clothing
