Radio frequency Removal of Skin Tags


Skin tags are often confused with moles, which are another kind of skin deformity, but are very different from each other. Skin tags are small, soft pieces of skin that stick out from the skin. They have thick stems, and are almost always harmless and benign. Skin tags tend to occur on the eyelids, neck, armpits, groin folds, and under breasts.

While skin tags don’t generally require any treatment, many people often choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons, or because they cause discomfort when they rub against clothing or get caught in jewelry. Skin tags can be removed in a variety of ways, and your doctor will decide how to remove your skin tag. The most common way of removing skin tags is by cutting them off with a scalpel or surgical scissors. Another way of removing skin tags is by using liquid nitrogen. Your doctor will swab or spray a small amount of super-cold liquid nitrogen on your skin tag, following which it will freeze up and fall off on its own. You might have a small blister where the mole or skin tag was, but it will heal on its own.

Additionally, skin tags can also be removed by burning them off. An electric current is passed through a wire which becomes hot, and is then used to burn off the upper layers of the skin, thus successfully removing the skin tag.
