What Are Skin Tags?
Skin tags are soft, painless, noncancerous growths which hang from the surface of the skin. They are generally found in areas of friction, such as the armpits, neck, or groin, although they can be found on various areas of the face and throughout the body. While they are painless by themselves, they can be irritated when shaving or rubbing against clothing. They are not dangerous, but can be removed for aesthetics or comfort.
How Are Skin Tags Removed?
At Urgentology Care, we use a technique called electrodessication to remove skin tags. This brief procedure involves the use of an unheated electrode to dehydrate the upper layers of skin. Treatment takes a few seconds for each skin tag and does not cause bleeding or significant pain. The resulting scabs will fall off naturally within about a week or so.
Our family doctors at Urgentology Care can quickly remove skin tags with very little discomfort. We will apply a topical anesthetic and then inject a small amount of local anesthetic in treatment area(s). Then, the skin tags are removed with a very precise electrosurgical instruments, which causes the skin tags to shrivel and eventually scab over. Once treatment is complete, there is no downtime, and you can resume your regular activities right away. We will apply a soothing ointment and send you home with aftercare instructions.
Can I Remove My Own Skin Tags?
You should not attempt to remove or cut off a skin tag on your own, especially if it’s large. Cutting off a skin tag on your own without sterilized equipment is risky, especially because the resulting wound can become infected. The risks outweigh the benefits, and you’re safer seeing a skilled skin tag removal doctor in Arlington, instead.
