Skin tags, moles, warts and verrucas can take many shapes, sizes and colors, but generally they are brownish color, round and slightly asymmetrical. Small skin tags that are black or brownish in color are called dermatosa papulosa nigra, and often occur on the face and neck of asians and african-americans. Skin tags that are large fleshy tumor-like outgrowths of the skin are called acrochordons. Large, flat, wartlike growths of variable color are called seborrheic keratosis.
- Laser removal
We also use the CO2 laser for skin tag removal. The treatment is carried out with an injection of local anaesthetic to reduce discomfort. The laser ablates the skin tag and the treated area will appear red after treatment. You will be given advice on how to care for the area post treatment.
- Surgical removal
At our clinic skin tags, moles, warts and verrucas can be removed with a blade, when your skin is totally numbed. Procedure is safe and easy, performed by experienced dermatologists or surgeon.
