Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags or acrochordons are skin-coloured pedunculated benign tumours that occur in body creases due to friction and may be an aesthetic concern for men and women. Top dermatologists at LASKIN  Skin & Hair Clinic can help eliminate skin tags safely using USFDA-approved revolutionary technology. Read on to learn more about the skin tag removal procedure, benefits and results right here to make a wise choice!  

What Are Skin Tags?

Skin tags are benign, soft, skin-coloured non-cancerous growths that usually hang with a peduncle or stalk.

They can appear anywhere on the body but most commonly occur in the areas of friction and skin folds like:

  • Eyelids
  • Neck 
  • Underarms
  • Upper chest
  • Under the breasts
  • Groins
  • Inner thighs 

What Are The Symptoms Of Skin Tags?

Most of the time, skin tags are asymptomatic. However, constant rubbing with clothes or jewellery may cause:

  • Itching
  • Pain
  • Irritation  

What Are The Causes Of Skin Tags?

Skin tags occur due to excess cellular growth in the superficial skin layers. Skin tags tend to occur in skin folds due to friction. The causes of skin tags may be diverse and may include the following:

  • Hereditary factor
  • Obesity
  • Insulin resistance
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Skin ageing

They barely grow due to rare syndromes.  

How To Diagnose Skin Tags?

Dermatologists diagnose skin tags after physical examination. Due to the distinct characteristics of skin tags, experienced medical experts can distinguish them from other skin growths like moles and warts. Skin tags are skin-coloured or dark brown pedunculated growths ranging in size from 2 to 5 mm. 

What Are The Treatments Available At LASKIN For Skin Tag Removal?

At LASKIN  Skin & Hair Clinic, experienced dermatologists safely remove skin tags using radiofrequency or electrocautery methods. After a physical examination of the size and location of the skin tag and assessing the underlying cause, our dermatologists decide the suitable modality. 

They will first apply topical or local anaesthesia for 30-60 minutes to ensure you enjoy a virtually painless procedure. Next, they may use radiofrequency energy to heat the tissue by using alternating electric currents. Alternatively, they may perform electrocautery by applying direct current to the target tissue through a tiny thin probe to eliminate the skin tag by burning it. You may expect the skin tag to shed naturally within a week after the procedure.

Our dermatologists prescribe topical antibiotics to speed up the skin healing process in the target area and prevent any secondary infections. They may advise a follow-up session to minimise the risk of recurrence.
