      What is a Skin Tag?

      Skin tag is unwanted growth that can happen on the skin. They can be removed from the skin using various treatment methods.
      These are noncancerous growths that are painless. The skin tag usually occurs in areas where there are skin folds like – breasts, neck, armpits, eyelids, etc. These tags are loose collagen fibers that get stuck inside the skin and can look like warts or moles. These are not harmful or painful at all but are not aesthetically pleasing.

      What are the causes of Skin Tags?

      There can be various different causes behind this. Some of them are:
      1. Genetic factors or medical conditions: People who have a previous history of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hormonal imbalance, cholesterol or acanthosis nigricans are more likely to develop skin tags.
      2. Most common reason is friction where skin is rubbing against skin or skin is being rubbed with clothes, jewelry etc. Due to increased weight or ageing (loose skin) this can happen.

      Skin Tag Removal Procedures

      Skin tag removal, also known as skin tag excision, is a medical procedure performed to eliminate small, benign growths called skin tags. Skin tag removal is usually done by following treatment methods:
      1. Cauterization: Electrocautery is the method which is used to cut and burn the tag from the surface using heat-based technology.
      2. Cryosurgery: A very small amount of liquid nitrogen is sprayed over the tag which freezes the growth.
      3. Ligation: Tags can be removed by cutting off the blood flow with the help of a medical-grade surgical thread.
      4. Surgery: This simply requires doctor to snip off the tag from its base with surgical scissors. Depending on the size of tag bandage or stitches might be needed.

      Skin tag Removal is usually quick, relatively painless, and leaves minimal scarring, providing a practical option for those looking to enhance their appearance and comfort by removing these benign skin growths.

      Benefits of Skin Tag Removal Treatments

      The benefits of skin tag removal extend beyond cosmetic considerations. While skin tags are generally harmless, their removal offers several advantages. Firstly, it eliminates the discomfort or irritation that can arise when skin tags rub against clothing or jewellery, particularly if they are located in areas of high friction. Additionally, skin tag removal provides a quick and effective solution for those seeking to enhance their appearance and self-esteem. Removal can boost self-confidence and allow individuals to wear clothing items they might have otherwise avoided due to skin tags’ presence. Furthermore, the procedure is relatively straightforward, causing minimal pain, and leaves behind minimal scarring, making it a practical option for those who wish to eliminate skin tags while maintaining a natural and unblemished appearance. In many cases, skin tag removal can be performed in an outpatient setting, further enhancing its convenience and accessibility. However, individuals considering skin tag surgery should consult with a healthcare provider or dermatologist to evaluate the best approach for their specific situation and to discuss potential risks or complications associated with the procedure.
