Skin Tag (Acrochordon) Removal in Dubai

Home Dermatology Skin Tag (Acrochordon) Removal in Dubai

A skin tag or acrochordon is a skin-colored noncancerous skin growth. These abnormal skin growths vary in size, ranging from a few millimeters to several inches. Skin tags may have a wrinkled or smooth texture, giving an irregular appearance to some while a pearl-like appearance to others. Generally, skin tags or fibroepithelial polyps are not malignant or contagious. They tend to occur in places where chafing is frequent, like:

  • Neck
  • Armpits
  • Under the breasts
  • Groin
  • Around the eyes or on eyelids

Most skin tags are harmless and do not pose a threat to an individual’s physical well-being. However, many people don’t find these protruding skin growths attractive and want to get rid of them. Moreover, if a tag grows more prominent, it may catch in jewelry or clothing, causing pain or inflammation. For such cases, skin tag removal treatment is usually recommended.

Why do I get skin tags?

Skin tags are made of blood vessels and loose collagen fibers surrounded by skin. They usually occur due to skin rubbing and chafing, so obese individuals are more susceptible to skin tags. Finding out the cause of skin tags is essential before getting acrochordon treatment. There are several reasons why someone gets skin tags, such as:

  • Genetics
  • Skin Diseases
  • Inflammation of Blood Vessels
  • Type-2 Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Cancer

Who can get a skin tags removal procedure?

Skin tags are common among men and women. While they are noncancerous and harmless, many people want to get rid of them. You are an ideal candidate for a skin tag procedure if you:

  • Have an abnormal skin growth or skin lump anywhere on the body
  • Feel physically uncomfortable due to these abnormal skin growths
  • Are in good mental and physical health
  • Want to improve your appearance by eliminating these protruding skin growths

Skin Tags Removal Treatments

Several skin tag removal procedures have been used to get rid of abnormal skin growth. While conventional methods are riskier and do not guarantee any success in removing skin tags, advanced skin tag removal treatments offer remarkable results.

Some common skin tag treatments are as follows:

  • Cauterization

Cauterization or electrocautery is a non-surgical procedure to get rid of skin tags. A skin-colored growth is burnt off using an electric probe or a needle during this procedure. The heat is applied to a specifically targeted area and only destroys the skin tissue in that area. This procedure is effective and delivers results in 1-2 sessions. Moreover, the treatment does not have any downtime, and the results are permanent.

  • Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy or freezing is another non-surgical method for removing skin tags. This treatment uses a particular solution to freeze the skin cells responsible for causing skin tags. An expert targets the affected area with liquid nitrogen or argon gas during the procedure. They will use a cotton swab, injection, or a spray device to apply the solution. Once the skin tag is targeted, ice crystals will start forming within the skin growth, breaking up the cells. Typically, cryotherapy does not have any downtime and offers instant results. Moreover, it does not damage the surrounding skin.

  • Laser Skin Tag Removal

A laser can also be used to remove skin tag growth. However, this procedure is minimally invasive, so topical anesthesia is used to minimize discomfort during the procedure. After numbing the target area, a dermatologist will target the skin tag with laser beams. These beams remove the excess skin tissues, eliminating the skin tag. Laser skin tag removal is suitable for smaller skin tags and usually delivers the desired results after 2-3 sessions.

  • Excision

A surgical method to remove abnormal growths from a skin patch is called excision. Excision is suitable for larger skin tags. A surgeon uses a sharp blade or scalpel to slice the skin tag off during this procedure. While excising the skin tag, some surrounding skin will also be removed. Moreover, sutures will be required to close the wound.

Skin Tags Removal Results

The results of acrochordon or skin tag removal treatment depend on different factors and vary from case to case. Moreover, each skin tag removal technique offers different results to various users. Candidates may experience some bruising or scarring after the procedure. However, as soon as that subsides, they will notice results, i.e., the removed skin tag.
