Skin tags are small skin growths that hang off the skin. They are most likely to appear on the neck, back, armpits, upper chest, groin, or under the breasts. They are also most likely to develop in places where the skin has folds or creases. Simply by their appearance, they can lessen a person’s confidence and they can appear anywhere on the body. We know that skin tags can be a nuisance to deal with, but with the help of our medical staff, you can have your skin tag removed.
Medical Spa Skin Tag Treatment
Skin tags are generally harmless, so most people get them removed for cosmetic reasons. However, large skin tags that rub against something like clothes or jewelry can become irritated. Although you can take matters into your own hands, it is safest to have our board-certified doctor remove them. The various home remedies, like cutting them off yourself with a pair of scissors, might cause infection or scarring. At our med spa in Orlando, our medical team can use various techniques to remove your irritating skin tag quickly and safely.
Methods of Removal
Upon opting for skin tag treatment, our dermatologist may use one of three methods to remove the skin tag. One method uses a scalpel or surgical scissors to cut off the skin tag. Another method is called cryosurgery, which involves freezing the skin tag off. The last of the three methods, electro-surgery, takes the opposite approach, as the surgeon uses a specialized device to burn off the skin tag. Treatment is generally short and can be done in the comfort of our med spa in Orlando with little to no downtime afterward.
