What are Skin Tags? How Can they be removed?

Skin tags are very common small, soft skin growths.
Skin tags are harmless but can be annoying.
Skin tags tend to occur on the eyelids, neck, armpits, groin folds, and under breasts.
A person may have anywhere from one to hundreds of skin tags.
Almost everyone will develop a skin tag at some point in their lives.
Middle-aged, obese adults are most prone to skin tags.
Obesity is associated with skin tags.
Removing a skin tag does not cause more to grow.

How Can they be removed?

The following procedures may be used to remove skin tags:
Cauterization – the skin tag is burned off using electrolysis (heat is used to remove them)
Cryosurgery – the skin tag is frozen off using a probe containing liquid nitrogen
Ligation – the blood supply to the skin tag is interrupted
Excision – the skin tag is removed with a scalpel (it is cut out).

Laser Principles

Laser treatment of red vascular lesions is based on the principle of selective photothermolysis, the conversion of laser energy to heat, which selectively destroys vascular lesions. To achieve removal of vascular lesions, laser energy is applied to the skin and absorbed by oxyhemoglobin, the target chromophore found in red blood.

Laser energy is converted to heat in red blood, causing vessel wall and perivascular damage, that results in vessel closure and reduced erythema. The surrounding skin minimally absorbs energy and remains unaffected.
