Skin tags are extremely common, and completely benign overgrowths of the skin. While they are harmless, they are often cosmetically bothersome, particularly if they are located in an obvious location like the face or neck. If you have skin tags that you would like removed, Innovation Dermatology is pleased to offer skin tag removal services.
Skin tags are small, soft growths usually on the neck, eyelids, upper trunk and body folds. They can develop on anyone but are more common as we age. They are more frequently found in areas of friction including the armpits, groin folds, inner thighs, and around the neck, as well as on the face, around the eyes, and under the breasts. Skin tags are typically harmless, and they do not need to be removed. However, people often like to remove them because they are located in an undesirable spot and are unsightly, or because they can become irritated when rubbed.
