Why Should Warts and Skin Tags Be Removed?
Though Skin Tags are typically benign, they can still itch and cause general discomfort for those who have them. If they are located on your eyelid, they can even impair your ability to blink. Doctors typically recommend their removal because they can grow more and more irritating with time.
Warts are caused by viral infections on the surface of the skin. Adolescence, a weak immune system, and habits like biting your fingernails can predispose you to their appearance. Warts can spread throughout the body and are contagious, meaning that contact with one or with an object that has touched one can cause them to develop. If ignored, warts will continue to spread throughout the outer layer of the dermis. Warts should be removed to limit the chance of them developing into a more serious concern.
What does Skin Tag and Wart Removal feel like?
Skin Tags and Warts are conditions that occur on the surface of the skin, which means that no incision into the deeper levels of the dermis is required. Skin Tag and Wart removal is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime. A mild anesthetic may be used to increase patient comfort if many Warts and Skin Tags have to be removed.
There may be some mild irritation of the treated area after the treatment has been completed, but it should go away with time. Skin Tag and Wart Removal is typically an outpatient procedure, so you’ll most likely be able to return home to work or rest after the treatment is over.
How Do I Know If I’m a Good Candidate for Skin Tag and Wart Removal?
Skin Tag and Wart Removal is typically non-invasive, so if you cannot undergo surgery, this treatment is still available to you. There’s no age requirement for these procedures so children as well as adults can have their unwanted skin growths removed. To verify your own candidacy, you’ll need to attend a consultation with one of our practitioners. During this consultation, the practitioner will discuss your current health and medical history with you to see if you are compatible with our treatments. Alternatives will be discussed if our Skin Tag and Wart Removal procedures cannot work for you.
