Skin Tag Removal


Skin tags are small bumps that develop where the skin rubs against itself. The tendency to develop skin tags can run in families, but often people have no idea how to remove skin tags or where to go for help. Skin tags appear most commonly in the regions of the neck, torso, breasts, armpits, mid-thighs, and genitals.

The removal of skin tags is a relatively simple procedure but should be done by a medical dermatologist. American Aesthetic Medical Center can easily and painlessly remove skin tags without scar formation.
