Skin Tag Removal dallas

Skin tags are common benign skin growths that appear as a small piece of soft, hanging skin. Some individuals are more prone to skin tags than others through increased weight, heredity, or other unknown causes.

Skin tags usually occur in characteristic locations, including the base of the neck, underarms, eyelids, groin folds, and under the breasts or in areas where skin rubs against skin (rubbing the eyes, friction in the armpits, repetitive irritation from sports, heavy necklaces).

Skin tags can be removed effectively by freezing them with liquid nitrogen or excising them with special instruments.
