What It is
Skin tags, or acrochorda, are pieces of benign skin growth that hangs from surrounding skin. They can vary in size and colour, and can be wrinkled, smooth, slightly brown or flesh coloured, and take shape in irregular forms. They may appear anywhere on the body but are often found on areas of the skin that rubs against skin or clothing frequently. This may include under the breasts, eyelids, armpits, neck, and groin area.
How It’s Treated
The surgical removal of skin tags by the excision process is done by using a sharp, small scalpel to remove the skin tag from the surface of the skin. Prior to this, the surrounding area will be numbed with a local anesthesia to ensure you the greatest comfort levels during the procedure. The results are instant and a skin tag will not regrow from the same spot once it has been removed.
Radio Frequency is a highly effective method for the removal of unwanted skin tags. It uses the power of radio waves, its high frequency, and low temperatures to remove skin tags with minimal downtime and virtually no bleeding. The Radio Frequency removal of skin tags is a great option for those who do not want to deal with side effects or complications.
