Skin Tags

Certain growths like skin tags may not be dangerous but can prove to be annoying if left untreated. While you may be tempted to remove these growths yourself, seeking the help of a professional here at Sagebrush Dermatology is a better option. Our team offers effective skin treatments to help you look and feel beautiful in no time.

What Are the Causes?

Skin tags, or acrochordons, develop when our bodies produce extra cells in the skin’s top layers. These growths tend to form in skin folds and areas where natural movement causes the skin to rub against itself. Some of the most common areas where skin tags can be found are:

  • In the armpits.
  • On the eyelids.
  • On the groin or thighs.
  • On the neck.
  • Under the breasts.
  • On the genitals.

What Are the Signs?

This skin condition does not typically cause symptoms but can cause discomfort or bleeding when rubbed against clothing or skin. This rubbing is especially uncomfortable and hard to control when it occurs on the thighs or groin. Despite the irritation skin tags cause, removing them at home is a bad idea since that can lead to bleeding, scarring, and infection. 

Treatments for Skin Tags

Here at Sagebrush Dermatology, we offer cryosurgery and electrosurgery removal treatments. The first method relies on liquid nitrogen to safely freeze skin growths. The second method destroys growths using heat generated by electrical currents. The right option for you will depend on the nature of your condition and their location.
