Skin tags: they can be irritating at most times and get in the way when they are located on areas like the neck or on the palm of the hand. If you find yourself constantly being rubbed the wrong way by your skin tags we have a solution here at Snowberry Lane. It’s quick. It’s painless and there’s no downtime.
So how do we get rid of skin tags? Through radio surgery or laser treatments. We use both styles depending on how we assess the condition of the skin during consultation. The first thing you should know is that these treatments aren’t invasive. In the past removing a skin tag would involve cutting open the area and removing it with a scalpel. This ran the risk of leaving scarring and even infection. We eliminate that risk as lasers only work on the surface area.
The process will usually involve us cleaning the area around the skin tag, passing the laser over the tag until heat causes it to break down the bonds inside the tag and become easily removable. Radio surgery does the same, only it uses radio waves to get the job done. The great thing about this treatment is that patients don’t feel a big level of discomfort while it occurs.
Common areas patients have tags removed from include:
- Back of the neck
- Upper thigh
- Side of the eyes
- Back of the hand
