Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags are common, benign growths that protrude from the skin’s surface. Though harmless, they can be a source of concern or discomfort for some individuals. Doc Plus aims to provide comprehensive insights into what skin tags are, their potential causes, and various removal options.

Skin tags, scientifically known as acrochordons, are small, soft, and often flesh-colored growths that appear on the skin. They typically hang off the skin by a thin stalk, giving them their distinctive appearance. Skin tags are non-cancerous and are more prevalent in areas where skin rubs against skin, such as the neck, armpits, and groin.

The exact cause of skin tags isn’t always clear, but they are commonly associated with friction or irritation. Factors like obesity, hormonal changes during pregnancy, and genetics may contribute to their development. Individuals with diabetes also tend to be more prone to skin tags.

Milia are tiny, white or yellowish cysts that develop when keratin becomes trapped beneath the skin’s surface. Unlike acne, these small bumps are not caused by oil or debris but are rather a result of keratin buildup. Commonly found on the surface of face, milia can also appear on other areas of the body.

Understanding skin tags, their causes, and removal options empowers individuals to make informed decisions about managing these benign growths.Our professionals will provide personalised advice, prioritising safe removal of your skin tag.

While skin tags and milia are harmless, some people prefer to remove them for cosmetic reasons or if they cause discomfort.

The preferred method to remove milia and skin tags is clinical removal.
Common methods include excision (cutting), cryotherapy (freezing), and cauterization (plasma technology). These procedures are generally quick and minimally invasive.

Professional removal is considered safe and effective. We will determine the most suitable approach for each individual case. After removal, there may be minor discomfort, however healing is generally quick, and scarring is minimal.

Skin tags are generally benign and harmless. However, if you notice changes in size, colour, or shape, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional.

While some people use home remedies like tying off the tag, it’s recommended to seek professional advice, as removing skin tags at home may run into complications such as bleeding and infections. We can safely remove skin tags using various methods. It is always best to obtain a medical opinion before removing any lesions.

Over-the-counter creams may help reduce the size of skin tags, but their effectiveness varies. Consultation with a healthcare professional ensures a more reliable and safe removal process.

In professional settings, removal procedures like excision, cryotherapy or cauterisation are generally well-tolerated. Local anesthesia may be used to minimise discomfort.

While removal is usually permanent, new skin tags may develop over time. Factors like genetics and skin friction contribute to their formation.

The duration varies based on the removal method. Professional removal methods often provide quicker results, while natural remedies may take longer. Healing times typically range from a few days to a couple of weeks.
