Skin Tag Treatment

What are skin tags?

Skin tags are painless, non-cancerous, soft, small skin growths that hang off the skin by a connecting stalk. Skin tags are common in both men and women.

What causes skin tags?

Skin tags are benign, painless, noncancerous, tumors of the skin. They consist of a core of fibers and ducts, nerve cells, fat cells, and a covering or epidermis.

It is unknown exactly what causes skin tags, but as they often occur in areas where folds appear in the skin, friction may be a factor. They are most common after mid-life and affect men and women equally.

Treating skin tags

The skin tags are first anesthetized with a topical numbing cream for around 10-15 minutes and then treated with a plasma pen device, which cauterizes it.
