Skin Tags and Moles

Skin tags and moles are often undesirable conditions on the skin that may be viewed as unsightly, or depending on their location, even become uncomfortable.

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. 

Moles occur when cells in the skin grow in a cluster rather than being spread throughout the skin. The size and location of moles can often be undesirable for many people, resulting in less overall satisfaction with their skin.
