Skin tags or mole, while relatively harmless, can sometimes cause discomfort or embarrassment depending on where they occur.
What are Skin Tags?
A skin tag is a soft, small growth that is generally skin-colored. It hangs off of the skin and resembles a wart. They are made up of blood vessels and loose fibers of collagen that are surrounded by skin.
They are quite common and can vary in color and size that ranges from a few millimeters to about 2 inches in width.
Skin tags tend to form in areas where there is constant friction, such as the groin, armpits, neck, underneath the folds of the buttocks, on eyelids, and underneath the breasts. Skin tags affect men and women, however, they tend to affect people with type 2 diabetes, the elderly, and pregnant women.
While harmless, skin tags can become a problem if they should suddenly cause discomfort and pain, such as being in an area where they are continuously being caught on clothing or jewelry, causing them to bleed.
Having skin tags can often affect a person’s self-confidence, which is another reason for having them removed. In some case, a skin tag will die and fall off on its own if they become twisted, causing a lack of blood supply to the area.

With this treatment, a tiny probe that has an electric current is used. It will burn or cauterize the skin tag, effectively destroying the growth and causing it to fall off.
