Skin Tags are usually harmless and painless.
The main symptom is a growth on the skin, often on the neck, upper chest, underarms and eyelids. They’re connected to the skin by a small, thin stalk called a peduncle. Skin tags are common in both men and women, especially after age 50. They can appear anywhere on your body, though they’re commonly found in places where your skin folds and they may become irritated from rubbing against clothing.
It is not clear exactly what causes skin tags, but it may happen when clusters of collagen and blood vessels become trapped inside thicker pieces of skin.
At Laser Sydney we Diagnose skin tags by offering a free consultation to ensure that these growths are safe and suitable to remove. The procedure involves a electric cortarised probe that singes or cuts through the skin tissue growth. Depending on the type of skin or size of growth will determine how any sessions you will need and how long the skin will take for recovery to heal.
