Skin Tag Removal

 

What Are Skin Tags?

  • Acrochordons are non-cancerous overgrowths of the skin 

  • They are common and increase with age

  • Usually located on areas of the body with increased friction  [neck, underarm, groin area]

  • They range from being skin colored to brown and are usually connected to the skin by a stalk

 

How Do You Treat / Remove Skin Tags?

  • Usually removed due to irritation or for cosmetic reasons

  • Typically no need to send off for pathology unless they look atypical

  • 1981MD removes skin tags by various methods depending on number, size, and location

    • removed via Electrosurgery or Shave /Scissor Excision

  • Usually no suture is required, however, if the skin tag is large it will have increased blood flow and may require sutures

 

CAUTION:

Skin tags can sometimes be confused with moles or skin cancers. It may be determined at time of consultation that it would be best to have it removed by a surgical dermatologist to ensure that it is not melanoma (skin cancer).
