What is a skin tag?
A skin tag can be defined as a non-threatening lesion that appears to hang from the surface of the skin. They are not harmful to the patient’s overall health, but may be found to be a topic of insecurity for many, making skin tag removals a highly beneficial cosmetic treatment.
Skin tags can occur in both men and women, but become more likely with age; often found to develop within skin folds such as those of the armpits, neck, and groin.
The cause of skin tags is unknown; however, it is highly likely that the following factors may play a role in the development of skin tags on the surface of the skin:
• Heightened growth factor levels, particularly during pregnancy. (Growth factors are the proteins involved with the regulation of cell growth.)
• Human papillomavirus, otherwise known as wart virus.
• Skin irritation and chaffing caused by skin rubbing together.
• Insulin resistance.
What does a skin tag removal involve?
There are several ways that our skin experts at Birmingham Dermatology Clinic can work to successfully remove skin tags, but this is a skin surgery procedure commonly carried out through the use of snip excision. Snip excision is a minimal procedure by which the skin tag is simply snipped from the surface of the skin, and is a treatment that takes around thirty minutes to complete.
Skin tags can also be removed for cosmetic reasons through use of the following methods:
• Surgical excision
• Electrosurgery, by which the skin tag is removed using an electrical current
• Cryotherapy, which involved freezing the lesion
• Ligation, meaning the skin tag is removed using a suture
To detect melanoma early, it is important to examine your skin on a regular basis.
