At Laser Cliniqúe, our goal is to provide skin treatments that are highly effective, as well as minimally invasive. This is why we offer minimally invasive treatment for scar, skin tag, mole, and wart removal.
Skin tags are invariably small, benign flaps of skin protruding out from the body on a thin stem. They are most commonly found on the neck, chest, armpits, back, under the breasts, and in the groin area. They appear most frequently in women (particularly with weight gain) and in older people. One theory is that skin tags are caused by blood vessels and bunches of collagen trapped inside thicker segments of skin.
They are believed to be caused by skin rubbing against skin, which is why they are more commonly found in skin folds and creases. Skin tags are common in overweight and obese people who have more skin folds and creases; during pregnancy, when hormonal changes occur; in people with diabetes, and with sex steroid imbalance — when changes in levels of estrogen and progesterone occur. At Laser Cliniqúe, we typically remove skin tags using surgical tools, freezing technology, or an excision process.
