Skin tags come in all sizes and they are an annoyance. Here at Minars Dermatology, we specialize in removing those pesky skin tags in Hollywood, FL.
Skin tags are a common, benign growth of the skin. They are not dangerous, but they are annoying. The official medical term for a skin tag is “acrochordon” or “fibroepithelial papilloma”. They come in all sizes and look exactly as the name implies: like a “tag” of skin hanging from your body.
Skin tags are very common and almost everyone has a few. They are probably caused by the friction of skin rubbing against skin, and that is why they occur most commonly in skin folds like the groin, underarms, or neck.
Removing them is fairly simple. There are two methods:
The ones we cut off will probably not recur, but we have no way of stopping your body from producing new skin tags. If you are prone to skin tags, you will probably grow more eventually. Many of our patients come in every few years to “clean up” all of their new tags.
If you’ve been thinking about having your skin tags removed in Hollywood, call us today to book your consultation. Our dermatologists will asses your skin tags to determine the best removal method.
