Skin Tags (Acrochordons)

Skin tags are growths of skin that are benign (not cancerous). They often grow in response to irritation or rubbing of the skin.

They can occur anywhere but it is very common to see them on the neck, underarms, waistline or bra-line.

They may be darker than the skin or the same color.  A thinner ‘stalk’ may attach them to the skin. It is a very simple procedure to remove them often using Electrodessication.

This is a minor surgical procedure performed in-office in less than an hour.
