Skin Tag Removal

What is Skin Tag Removal?

A straightforward treatment to get rid of tiny, benign growths on the skin's surface is skin tag removal. Cutting, freezing, or tying off the tag are common techniques. Although generally innocuous, removal could be necessary if the tag irritates the skin or for cosmetic purposes. The procedure is often completed quickly and as an outpatient by our medical professional using cryotherapy.

Who is a Good Candidate for Skin Tag Removal?

The following individuals are good candidates for skin tag removal:

  • Individuals bothered by the appearance or discomfort of skin tags.
  • Easily accessible and non-infected skin tags.
  • Seeking cosmetic improvement or relief from tag-related issues.
  • Those with tags in visible or irritating locations may benefit.

How Does Skin Tag Removal Work?

Skin tag removal typically involves straightforward procedures conducted by a medical professional. At MD Treatment Lounge we use cryotherapy for the removal skin tags. This procedure is generally quick and often performed in an outpatient setting, providing effective and efficient solutions for those bothered by skin tags.

The Skin Tag Removal Procedure

During your cryotherapy treatment, we will apply liquid nitrogen to your skin tag using a special spray gun. You may feel a few seconds of discomfort but not enough to require a local anesthetic. The skin lesion is frozen for a few seconds, which separates the skin and causes the lesion to naturally fall off. Depending on the size and thickness of the lesion, we may need to repeat the process once your skin has thawed out.

Post-Treatment Care

After any treatment, we’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions that relate to your procedure, so you know what to do and what to expect.

Common Questions

After the treatment, the skin tag will scab over and fall off within one to two weeks.

Although well tolerated, you may experience some pain and discomfort if a deep freeze is necessary. Swelling, redness and blistering sometimes occurs.

Most people can return to their usual activities. However, if you feel some discomfort you may want to take some downtime.

Sometimes people try to cut skin tags off themselves or tie them off with fishing line. Don’t do this. It can cause bleeding and possible infection.

If you decide you want yours removed, or notice changes in it, make an appointment to see a medical professional at MD Treatment Lounge.
