Many patients come in to the office to remove skin tags. It is as simple procedure by doing a snip excision. In this demonstration Dr. Mejia performs a skin tag removal on the face, although many people have them under their arms or groin area.
Skin tags are different from moles which can be cancerous and are simply fleshy growths on the skin. They do not need to be removed, but in some cases, if a patient has many, it may cause irritation in the skin. In another post, Dr. Mejia explains the difference between skin tags and moles.
