Skin Tag Removal Los Angeles

Skin tags are harmless growths that appear on the skin, often on the neck, eyelids, and arm pits. They are typically the same color as our skin or a little darker. While there’s no reason to be concerned about skin tags from a medical perspective, many of our clients opt to have them removed for aesthetic reasons. And we’re here to help! skin tag removal los angeles

Skin tag removal at MedBeautyLA is a fast, painless, and safe procedure that has an incredibly high patient satisfaction rate. (The most common comment we receive from patients after treatment is simply, “I wish I had done it sooner!”)

The Skin Tag Removal Process at MedBeautyLA

Your provider will remove your skin tag(s) with something called a hyfrecation device. This device uses electrocurrent to cleanly and comfortably remove the skin tag within minutes. No stitches are needed after the procedure and you can resume most normal activities same-day.

Skin Tag Removal FAQs

Does Skin Tag Removal Hurt?

Skin tag removal with a hyfrecator is an extremely comfortable procedure. Clients can opt to receive a topical numbing cream prior to treatment, but many do not require it.

Removing Skin Tags At Home: Should I Try It?

We do not recommend at-home skin tag removal. Home remedies can lead to permanent scarring and/or skin discoloration, which is why we always advise seeking treatment from a professional.

Additionally, a certified medical provider will be able to properly assess the skin tag and ensure that it is not something potentially more serious, like basil cell carcinoma.

What Causes Skin Tags?

Skin tags are usually genetic — meaning you’re likely not the only person in your family to have them. You are also more likely to develop skin tags if you have diabetes or are pregnant.

Are Skin Tags Contagious?

No — skin tags are not contagious, so there is no need to be concerned. However, many people find skin tags in the armpits and eyelids uncomfortable, so there is a practical reason for removal in addition to an aesthetic concern.

Do Skin Tags Grow Back?

In most cases, a skin tag will not grow back once removed. Others might develop in different areas, and you can assess if you want additional removals at that time.
