Skin Tag Removal

What are skin tags?

Skin tags are small, benign growths that often appear as soft, flesh-colored or slightly darker protrusions on the skin. These growths are connected to the skin by a thin stalk and are commonly found in areas where skin rubs against skin or clothing. While skin tags are generally harmless and painless, they can be removed for cosmetic reasons or if they become irritated. If you’re unsure about a skin growth, it’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and guidance.

Common Areas where skin tags are located

Skin tags are small, they are usually 2 to 4 centimetres, however, some can grow more than 5 centimetres. Once formed, they typically do not get any bigger. Here are some common areas where skin tags are located:

  • Underarms
  • Under the breast
  • Under the eye
  • Around the groin area
  • On the neck

Skin Tag Causes

The formation of skin tags can be attributed to various factors, including:

  1. Friction: Skin tags often develop in areas where there is frequent friction between skin surfaces or between clothing and the skin.
  2. Genetics: There may be a genetic predisposition to developing skin tags, and individuals with a family history of skin tags may be more prone to them.
  3. Hormonal Changes: Hormonal fluctuations, such as those that occur during pregnancy, may contribute to the development of skin tags.
  4. Obesity: Being overweight or obese can increase the likelihood of developing skin tags, particularly in areas with skin folds and increased friction.
  5. Age: Skin tags become more common with age, and older individuals are more likely to experience their formation, possibly due to changes in collagen and skin elasticity.
