Skin Tag Treatment In Fort Lauderdale

Best Skin Tag Specialists In Broward

What are Skin Tags? 

Skin tags are small, brown-ish growths that appear dangling from the skin. They appear in skin folds such as the eyelids, chest neck, groin, and armpits. They may appear isolated, or in a cluster of tags. Most skin tags are benign and only pose as a cosmetic concern. 

What Causes Skin Tags?

There is no singular cause for skin tags, but they are usually the result of skin rubbing together. Skin tags may appear at any age, on any gender, but are often treated on patients ages 35-60. 

Skin Tag Treatments

You should avoid removing skin tags yourself, even though some appear to simply dangle from the skin. Most tags contain blood vessels, which can bleed if treated at home. You may choose to have your physician remove the tags if they are bothersome, or a cosmetic concern. Our physicians offer several different methods for treatment which may include:

  • Cryotherapy 
  • Electrodesiccation (burning to remove)
  • Excision
