Skin Tag Removal in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain

What is a skin tag?

A skin tag is a small brown or skin-colored growth (ranging in size from a few millimeters to 5cm) that hangs from the skin surface. Skin tags can look like raised bumps or warts and are made of loose collagen fibers and blood vessels surrounded by skin.

Even though skin tags are common, they are harmless and cause no pain or discomfort; however, they may cause self-esteem issues for some people, especially when they appear on the neck or hands.

What is the cause of skin tags?

Skin tags usually develop in body areas that have skin folds or creases, usually, the neck, armpits, under the breasts, or around the groin, which makes them more likely to affect overweight people. Skin tags can be a hereditary condition, and pregnant women and type 2 diabetes patients are more likely to have them. Still, some people may develop skin tags for unknown reasons.

Skin tags treatment at Novomed

When you visit Novomed dermatology clinic for consultation, our experienced dermatologist will review your medical history, assess your skin tag and decide the most suitable treatment approach. During the consultation, the doctor will answer any questions you might have, advise you on the best treatment technique, and explain the procedure, recovery, outcome, and cost.

Skin tag removal techniques

· Excision removal: this technique is performed under the effect of local sedation, making it painless. It involves removing the skin tag using a scalpel, leaving a tiny pink or white scar in its place.

· Cryotherapy: this procedure involves freezing the skin tag by applying liquid nitrogen to the treatment area. It destroys the cells and collagen fibers within the skin tag and blocks its blood supply, causing it to fall off naturally. Skin irritation and discoloration may occur temporarily in some cases, and another treatment session may be needed if the skin tag does not fall off.

Is skin tag removal painful?

Skin tag removal is carried out under local anesthesia, making it safe and virtually painless. Our highly qualified dermatologists have years of experience treating skin tags using advanced and minimally invasive techniques.

Can skin tags grow back?

Skin tags will be removed permanently; however, your body can still develop skin tags in other areas in the future.

Does skin tag removal leave a scar?

The excision technique will leave a tiny scar, and cryotherapy has a low chance of causing minimal scarring or discoloration.
