Wart / Skin tag

What is Wart / Skin Tag?

Skin tags, also called acrochordons are small noncancerous, or benign, skin growths. Usually, they are flesh-colored bumps of tissue connected to the skin’s surface by a narrow stalk. A skin tag may appear anywhere on the skin, especially the neck, chest, back, under the arms, under the breasts, or in the groin area. Women are more likely to develop skin tags than men.
The growths may be surgically removed by freezing (cryotherapy), or electrically burned off (cautery).

Symptoms and Complications

They’re sometimes darker and may resemble a raised mole. Most skin tags are between 1-5 mm, but some can grow as large as a few centimeters. Friction from a skin tag rubbing against your skin, clothes or jewelry can cause discomfort or bleeding.

Treatment Options

Cryotherapy (Liquid Nitrogen Treatment)

Liquid nitrogen, or cryotherapy, is a quick, non-invasive process used to remove unwanted moles and skin tags. The treatment is a simple procedure that uses pressurized liquid nitrogen to freeze and eliminate skin tags. Once the Liquid nitrogen is sprayed on the affected area, it induces something which resembles frostbite. The procedure has very few side effects, is minimally invasive and offers a quick recovery time.


The cauterization process involves using a small tool to burn away the cells that make up the skin tag. It’ll fall off once those cells are dead, so cauterizing a skin tag is quick. A pair of tweezers is also used to remove them. The skin tags are treated without burning the healthy skin and leave no scars or depigmentation of the skin.
