Skin Tag Removal

Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags, or small, soft skin growths, are common and usually do not indicate a medical concern. When skin tags occur in places where skin rubs other skin or clothing, they can become irritated, and are often in visible areas of the body.

At De Vries Cosmetic Centre, we offer techniques to safely and completely remove skin tags from the body. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and have your skin tags examined to determine the best course of treatment.

What are Skin Tags?

Affecting nearly 3 million Americans each year, skin tags can occur anywhere on the body but are most commonly found on the eyelids, underarms, groin folds, neck and under the breasts.

While some skin tags are the size of a pin head, others can grow as large as a marble. They may also vary in color from blending with surrounding skin to being slightly darker. Most skin tags are harmless, but for cosmetic purposes many men and women choose to have them removed.
Who gets skin tags?

Men and women of all ages are equally at risk of developing skin tags. Skin tag development is most common in middle age (between 35 and 60 years of age). However skin tags can appear at any age with many children and toddlers developing tags under their arms and neck.

What causes skin tags?

The exact cause of skin tags is not known. However, many physicians believe skin tags are the result of skin rubbing against other skin as tags commonly occur in skin folds and creases where friction is common. Other research targets trapped collagen and blood vessels within thicker pits of skin as the cause.
Where is the procedure preformed?

All procedures are performed in-office with minimal to no scarring afterward.

Does skin tag removal hurt?

If the skin tag is small there will be relatively no pain. Removal in this case feels like a small pinprick. For larger skin tags a topical anesthetic will prevent you from feeling any paid during removal.

Should I Have My Skin Tags Evaluated?

Although skin tags are easily recognized and are often self-diagnosed, only a medical professional can tell you whether your skin tags are benign or if there is a more serious health issue present. In some cases, a biopsy may be necessary to rule out other health concerns.

It is important to monitor skin tags and other growths on the skin for changes over time and to report these findings to our medical team for immediate evaluation and accurate diagnosis and treatment.
