How Do You Get Rid of Skin Tags?
Skin tags can be debilitating to your confidence. And while they are rarely a medical concern, that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. At Aventura Dermatology in Aventura, Florida, Dr. Bertha Baum and her team provide skin tag removal treatments to reclaim your confidence and overall look. Below you’ll find methods for removal and other info that is good to know about these pesky skin growths.
Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags can be removed by a professional dermatologist using a variety of methods. Often, these methods are interchanged depending on the size of the skin tags and exactly how many are located in the affected area. You can freeze them off, chemically remove them, or in some situations, even have them removed by simple excision.
With that being said, you should only have skin tags removed by trained specialists. Aventura Dermatology will examine your skin tags and give you a professional opinion on removal options. It’s also important to get any removed skin tags tested to ensure that they are just simply benign skin growths.
Why Do Skin Tags Form?
As mentioned prior, you can have skin tags appear on your body for a variety of reasons. Typically, these reasons are not serious, though some do stem from medical conditions, in which case seeing a doctor may be the appropriate first step before coming to Aventura for removal. Otherwise, skin tags typically form due to irritation of your skin being rubbed constantly either by another part of your skin or clothing. This typically happens around the eyelids, underarms, inner thigh area, and anywhere else where you may have a fold of skin that rubs against itself.
Is There Any Way to Prevent Skin Tags?
Yes and no. You can always wear more comfortable clothing, or for instance, adapt your work clothes so that they give your body more room to breathe. Anything that’s overly tight and constantly rubbing against your skin can lead to skin tags. Otherwise, simply practicing good hygiene and taking care of your skin may also help prevent skin tags. Keep in mind they can still develop regardless of your most diligent efforts to keep them at bay.
