A skin tag is a flesh-colored flap of soft tissue that protrudes from the skin’s surface. They look like moles, but are usually smaller. Skin tags can develop anywhere, but are most commonly found in areas where skin, clothes, or jewelry rubs and irritates, such as under breasts, armpits, eyelids, groin, and neck. About one in four people will have a skin tag with higher occurrences in people who are overweight, pregnant, or have diabetes.

Skin tags are painless and harmless, but they are frequently removed because they can be unsightly or be bothered by jewelry or clothing. At Medical Dermatology Specialists, Dr. Jamie Weisman will help you take off unwanted skin tags. Using advanced tools and techniques, Dr. Weisman may remove a skin tag in one of these ways:

  • Snipping it off – skin tags are often cut off with sterile surgical scissors.
  • Burning – a wire is used to produce an electrical current that burns through the small attached stem of the tag to detach it from the skin.
  • Freezing – the use of extremely cold liquid nitrogen to burn away the skin tag, also called cryotherapy, is also used for a number of other skin maladies.

Whether you have a severe skin tag problem or just one or two, we provide safe, effective removal options. Based on the size, quantity, and locations of the skin tags, Dr. Weisman will determine which method of removal is best for you when you come in for your consultation. The simple procedure is performed right in the comfort of our office and only takes a few minutes. The expert team at Medical Dermatology Specialists, Inc. will send you home with follow-up instructions to help you care for and clean the area until it fully heals. Patients can return to normal activities immediately.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
