What Is Skin Tags Treatment

Skin tags are benign soft skin outgrowths. They do not pose any harm or pain. But can irritate. However, it is not painful. Small skin tags can be removed without applying anaesthesia. However, local anaesthesia may be used when removing larger skin tags to avoid a slight burning sensation. The procedure takes only a few minutes, and some people do not mind experiencing these mild bursts of discomfort.

Various other terms are used for skin tagssuch as:

    • Acrochordon
    • Cutaneous
    • Papilloma
    • Cutaneous tag

Such tags develop on body areas prone to friction, such as the neck and upper chest where clothing rubs against the skin or where the skin of a body part rubs against another, such as the underarms and the groin.

The size of those skin outgrowths varies from a few millimetres to 5 centimetres. It is challenging to distinguish skin tags from warts if they are minute and deep into the skin. They may also contain a stalk, which keeps them affixed to the skin’s base. They may occur separately or in clusters.

Even though skin tags are common and harmless, they may still cause niggling discomfort and give an unpleasant appearance, particularly on the eyelids or the neck area around the collarbone.

During shaving, skin tags can cause bleeding. They may become more irritated by clothing, jewellery or eczema.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does Skin Tags Removal Procedures Include?

  • Cryotherapy: skin tags are frozen off by using liquid nitrogen in a probe.
  • Ligation: blood supply to skin tags is intervened by binding the stalk.
  • Excision: skin tags can be removed with a scalpel.

How Does It Work?

Cryotherapy uses liquid nitrogen at extremely cold temperature (-170o C) to destroy cells after repeated freezing and thawing. It results in the formation of ice within cells causing them to shrink, swell and burst. Cryotherapy also destroys the blood supply of the skin tag. When these cells are destroyed, white blood cells from the immune system clear out the dead cells. This process of inflammation also promotes new cell growth and repair in the treated areas.

What Is The Advantage Of CryoPen Over Other Forms Of Treatment?

CryoPen offers a more accurate way of delivering nitrogen than cryotherapy spray from a canister since it uses a fine jet that can deliver targeted freezing to the tiny areas. It causes less discomfort to healthy skin. CryoPen also uses lower temperatures compared to other treatments for deeper freezing and more successful treatments.  Cryotherapy takes less time in the doctor’s office and heals faster than other techniques like electrocautery, ligation, and excision.
