  • Skin Tags Removal and Treatment

    Asymptomatic skin tags do not require treatment. Patients often request removal for bleeding, tenderness or for cosmetic reasons. Skin tags are best treated by scissor excision with or without local anesthesia. Electrocautery and cryosurgery can also be used. Many dermatologists feel that histologic confirmation is usually not necessary, but submission of all skin tags for histologic review is a topic of debate.
