Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags are a common occurrence, with more than half of all people in Los Angeles and around the world being affected by at least one at some point during their lives. They are more common in adults, although toddlers are also prone to getting them. Obesity can be a factor in the development of skin tags, but they can happen to anyone, regardless of age, weight, or sex. Skin tags are almost always harmless, but there are valid reasons for people to consult with a New York dermatologist about removing them. These reasons can range from cosmetic concerns to potentially life-threatening conditions.

What Are Skin Tags?
Skin tags are small flaps of loose skin that often resemble deflated balloons in shape and structure. When you first notice a skin tag, it may appear as a tiny lump on the surface of your skin. Although they generally do not grow larger than the size of a pencil eraser, some can become larger, even reaching the size of a grape. Skin tags should not be confused with pimples, moles, or accessory tagus, which are congenital abnormalities present from birth. Skin tags can occur anywhere on the body, but they are most commonly found in the following areas:
Skin tags can occur anywhere on your body, but they’re most common:
- At the base of your neck
- In and around your armpits
- In the folds of your buttocks and groin
- On your eyelids
- Under your breasts
Reasons for Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags often develop in areas where the skin comes into contact with clothing, leading to irritation and discomfort at the site of the skin tag. Additionally, the aesthetic appearance of a new growth on the skin can cause discomfort, especially if the skin tag is in a noticeable location, such as on the face. In some cases, skin tags on the eyelids can obstruct vision and require removal.
Although rare, there is a small possibility for skin tags to be precancerous or cancerous. If you notice a skin tag that starts to bleed or has unusual colors such as red, brown, pink, or black, it is important to make an appointment with us immediately.
