New York City and Manhattan, NY
Skin tags are common benign growths. Clinically referred to as an acrochordon, skin tags usually form in skin fold, such as the underarm, neck, eyelid, and even the groin. They are harmless but can cause irritation, especially from friction of the skin rubbing together. The exact cause of skin tags is unknown, although research has established potential links between the prevalence of skin tags and mitigating factors ranging from insulin resistance to genetics.
While there is no way to really prevent skin tags, there is treatment. Your board-certified dermatologists at NY Skin RX can remove skin tags to help you feel more confident, and comfortable in your own skin. This may entail having the tag frozen or surgical by hand after administering a local anesthetic.
