Skin tags are extra pieces of skin that stick out beyond the surface of the body. They are harmless and more of a cosmetic issue than anything else, but understanding what they are, and aren’t, can be reassuring. And though what causes skin tags isn’t always known, skin tag treatment is pretty straightforward — they are easily removed.
How to Identify a Skin Tag: What They Look Like
Skin tags can be as small as 1 millimeter and as large as 1 centimeter, occasionally even larger, says Rebecca Baxt, MD, a dermatologist in Paramus, New Jersey. Skin tags, also called acrochordons, are mostly flesh-colored growths, although some may be darker in color, according to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology (AOCD). They can be right on the skin’s surface or seem to sprout from a thin stalk of skin and hang off the body.
They are common on the neck, under the arms, in the groin, and on the eyelids, says Dr. Baxt, as they tend to grow in parts of the body with folds, but they can appear elsewhere as well. Once formed, they typically don’t get any bigger. You may have just one or two, or you may have many; they might be in isolated spots or in a group with many skin tags. They are usually asymptomatic, and they are diagnosed by visual inspection. However, since it can be difficult to self-diagnose skin tags, it’s important to see a dermatologist if anything is growing, changing, bleeding, itchy, crusty, flaky, or changing color on your skin, says Baxt.
Is a skin tag dangerous?
A mole or a skin tag is usually not a cause for concern. These are very common, and most people have about 10-40 moles on their skin. While many people have them, sometimes moles or skin tags can negatively impact self-confidence. Many people don’t like the way a skin tag looks or how it causes irritation from clothes. Biolite’s Cosmetic Radiosurgery is a great skin tag removal solution to get rid of unwanted moles or skin tags.
What is the best skin tag removal treatment?
Cosmetic radiosurgery is one of the best skin tag removal treatments available on the market. This skin tag removal treatment is a non-invasive procedure. It helps you get rid of any unwanted mole or skin tag safely and with no pain. In this skin tag removal treatment, high amounts of radio waves are sent through the wand and out of the tip, which target the mole tissue. The intense radio waves cause a process called intracellular volatilization. This process causes the water in the melanocytes to boil and steam, then rupture completely. Cosmetic radiosurgery is extremely popular because of its long list of benefits.

This skin tag removal treatment is completely non-invasive. It gets rid of the skin tag or mole without any cutting or burning of the skin.
Multiple moles can be treated in a single session
This skin tag removal treatment removes multiple skin tags or moles in just one session. Since the treatment uses radiofrequency waves for skin tag removal, it reaches areas of the body such as the face or nose that may be difficult to treat using other methods.
Highly effective and safe
This skin tag removal procedure is highly effective. It removes a skin tag effectively and with minimal scarring. It is also safer than traditional skin tag removal procedures. Its simple and delicate radiofrequency shave procedure is performed without crushing cells, causing minimal damage to surrounding tissue.
Reduced risk of infection
The risk of infection is reduced significantly with this skin tag removal procedure. The electrode used in the treatment is self-sterilizing while in use. This diminishes the likelihood of post-procedure infection.
COST: Depends on the surface area.
