Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags are small pieces of hanging skin that are often harmless but unwanted. While some skin tags may go away on their own, most skin tags will remain and slowly grow larger over time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do we get skin tags?
Skin tags can be caused by friction (rubbing), which tends to occur on the eyelids, neck, armpits, groin folds, and under the breasts. Most people will have one or more skin tags in their lifetime, and you can have anywhere from one to hundreds of skin tags. Individuals who are middle aged and obese are more prone to getting skin tags.
Can skin tags be harmful to my health?
Skin tags are benign (harmless) growths but can cause irritation to the skin, for example when caught on clothing. Middle-aged, obese adults are most prone to skin tags.
Can skin tags grow larger if not treated?
Yes, skin tags often become more pedunculated (longer) if gone untreated.
