Skin Tag Removal

What Are Skin Tags?

Skin tags, or acrochordons, are very common small, soft skin growths that occur on the eyelids, neck, armpits, groin folds, and under breasts.  They are harmless but annoying.  Skin tags usually occur at middle age and can be associated with obesity.  They typically result from friction due to jewelry or clothing rubbing against the skin.  Removing a skin tag does not cause more to grow.  It is recommended that they be removed if they become irritated or a cosmetic nuisance.  Depending on size and location, skin tags can be removed with cryotherapy or snipped off.
