How does Skin Tag and Mole Removal work?
Firstly, remember that skin is the largest organ in your body. Therefore, it is essential to care for it and assess it frequently. Skin tags are benign moles/tumors that are common in areas like the neck, underarms, groin, and face. Usually, skin tags are painless and harmless, and so is skin tag removal.
If you wish to have skin tags removed, it can easily be done with a device called 'Hyfrecator'. Skin tags can also be removed by using liquid nitrogen or with surgical excision if necessary. However, we do recommend you to come in for a free check-up before choosing a method.
As for the moles, they are a common type of skin lesion. Even though the majority of moles are not dangerous, you should have a mole checked out by a physician to find out if it is irregular, and find out if the mole is cancerous. For example, if you have noticed a change in the size or color of the mole, we suggest you come for a free check-up. After all, if a laser mole removal is needed, it is a simple office procedure.
It is important that you do not deal with skin tags and moles at home. We do offer different mole removal methods that are virtually painless. However, we can numb the area before removing them if you want to. Still wondering about "the best skin tag removal near me"? We are here. Book online!
