Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags are soft, noncancerous growths that usually form within the skin folds of the neck, armpits, breasts, groin area, and eyelids. These growths are loose collagen fibres that become lodged inside thicker areas of the skin.

After numbing the area with a local anaesthetic, your doctor will perform the following procedure based on the size and location of the skin tag:

  • Cryosurgery. Your doctor sprays a small amount of Liquid nitrogen over the skin tag, which freezes off the growth.
