It is very common to see skin tags appear on the neck, eyelids, groin and armpits. They start off very small and then get larger over time. In addition to the fact that no one would say that they like the appearance of their skin tags, they can actually get uncomfortable. This is especially the case if they are located in areas where clothing rubs against them. Thankfully, skin tags can be removed via skin tag removal at our office.
The first thing you may notice when considering having your skin tags removed is that there are some products that are available over-the-counter. However, individuals who use over-the-counter treatments do not always get the best results. If a skin tag is not removed all the way or it is removed in a rough way, the skin that is left behind could be damaged. You do not want this to happen.
We have a wide variety of options that are available to help individuals who are dealing with skin tags on their body. The method used will depend on the unique situation. For example, if you have issues with scarring, like keloid scarring, we will have to be very careful about the methods we choose in order to get rid of the skin tag.
Liquid nitrogen is commonly used for skin tag removal. The reason why this is sometimes the ideal option is because you will come in for treatment, the skin tag will be removed and then you will just have to use a little bit of at-home care in order to take care of the area and watch it heal over time. It really is that simple. You get immediate results.
Other treatments include using sterile medical scissors and electrodesiccation, which involves using a carefully controlled electric current. During a consultation at Rao Dermatology, we would be happy to discuss in further detail the options that we have available for skin tag removal. The best way for you to learn about these options is to schedule a consultation with us. The consultation will allow you to meet with our medical professionals and discuss the best solution to getting rid of your skin tags. We have offices in Manhattan, Atlantic Highlands, Woodbridge, Fresno and Hanford. Contact us today to schedule an appointment to learn more!
