Skin Tag Removal
Q & A

What Is Alopecia?

A skin tag is a tiny, soft piece of skin that hangs off of or protrudes from your normal skin from a peduncle or stalk. The interiors of skin tags are made up of fibers, ducts, nerve cells, and fat cells.

Skin tags are either the same color as your healthy skin or darker. They can be smooth or rough. Although skin tags are considered tumors, they’re benign and don’t usually cause symptoms.

Where Do Skin Tags Appear?

Skin tags can appear anywhere on your face or body, including your eyelids. However, they’re most common in areas that are subject to friction from movement or clothing, such as:

  • Underarms
  • Neck
  • Groin
  • Under breasts
  • Upper chest

Skin tags may grow over time.

Why Do I Have Skin Tags?

You’re more likely to develop skin tags once you’re over the age of 40. Risk factors for skin tags include obesity, high cholesterol levels, and high blood pressure. Skin tags might also run in families.

Can I Cut Off Skin Tags Myself?

The internet abounds with DIY skin tag treatments. However, skin tags aren’t fingernails and you shouldn’t try to cut them off or remove them with dental floss. Skin tags are part of your skin and are filled with nerves.

If you cut a skin tag, you could injure yourself or even develop an infection. You may use over-the-counter ointments to remove small skin tags on your own, but these take several weeks to work.

Skin tags have a tendency to fall off on their own over time. But when your skin tags are in a prominent, highly visible place or rub against your clothing or jewelry, you may benefit from having Northstar Dermatology remove them.

How Do Dermatologists Remove Skin Tags?

Northstar Dermatology safely and quickly removes skin tags in the comfort and privacy of their office. Your dermatologist may remove the skin tag with:

  • Cauterization, or heat
  • Cryosurgery, or cold, liquid nitrogen
  • Ligation by stopping blood flow to tag
  • Excision, using a scalpel

A removed skin tag won’t grow back. However, you may develop skin tags on other areas of your body at a later date. To safely and effectively remove skin tags, call Northstar Dermatology or book an appointment online today.
