What Causes Skin Tags?
Skin tags (acrochordons) occur when the body produces extra cells in the skin’s top layers. They tend to form in skin folds and areas where natural movement causes the skin to rub against itself.
Skin tags typically do not cause symptoms. In some cases, friction from a skin tag rubbing against your skin, clothes or jewelry can cause discomfort or bleeding.

What to Expect During a Skin Tag Removal?
Our residency and fellowship-trained dermatologists at Uderm are equipped to give you the best possible outcome for the evaluation and possible removal of your skin tag(s).
The removal of skin tags is an in-office procedure and no preparation is required. If it is a larger tag an injection may be required to numb the area before the lesion is removed. After the procedure is performed your dermatologist will provide you with a list of instructions for aftercare. Aftercare may include keeping the area cleaned daily with soap and water, a small bandage can be worn for 1-2 days if a person desires, and the treatment area will likely scab over for a few days after the procedure. Once the scab falls off, you may not even notice where the tags were removed.
