Skin tags are harmless, but they are hardly ever wanted by those who develop them. In many cases, they simply have a negative impact on the appearance of one’s skin. In others, however, they can cause annoyance and irritation if they develop in sensitive areas. If you have a skin tag that you would like to remove, we have treatment options for you at Guelph Medical Laser. Contact us today to learn more about how we perform skin tag removal at our center in Guelph.
What Are Skin Tags?
Skin tags are benign growths on the skin. Anyone can develop skin tags, but they become more common as an individual grows older. While skin tags can form anywhere, they are more likely to grow in the following areas:
- The underarms
- The neck
- The groin
Essentially, skin tags most commonly grow in areas that fold or rub together often. They typically do not grow any bigger once they have formed, but they rarely fall off on their own. This is why anyone who wants to get rid of one or more skin tags should always seek professional treatment.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Skin Tag Removal?
Virtually everyone is a good candidate for skin tag removal. It is a quick and minimally invasive procedure that requires nothing more than a local anesthetic to perform, meaning most people can undergo the process easily and comfortably. When you come in for your consultation, we’ll help you find out for sure if this procedure is right for you.
What to Expect During Treatment
Skin tag removal is a quick procedure that begins by numbing the area with a local anesthetic. After this step, the skin tag itself can be removed by a variety of methods such as cutting, burning, or freezing. We’ll help you learn more about your treatment options and which one is right for you when you come in for your appointment.
