Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags appear as small growths that protrude or hang from the skin. These benign skin growths can be bothersome and unsightly, causing many patients to have skin tags removed for aesthetic purposes.

While skin tags can form anywhere on the body, the neck and underarms are the most common locations. Though small in size, occasionally a skin tag can grow larger and may require removal if the skin tag is bothersome to the patient. 

Skin tags are generally harmless and it is rare for them to become precancerous. If the skin tag displays unusual coloring or is prone to bleeding, a skin biopsy may be required to rule out skin cancer as the cause of the growth.

MIVAS can remove bothersome skin tags in various locations on the body using the Gemini laser. This quick procedure is safe and will take off the skin tag with little or no discomfort.
