Usually harmless and painless, skin tags can cause self-esteem issues for people if they appear on prominent spots on the face, hands, or neck. In fact, your otherwise flawless or spotless skin that has no acne or premature signs of aging can be hampered due to a skin tag. Instead of using make-up products full of chemicals every time you have to step out, you can now get a permanent solution by getting skin tag removal.
A skin tag is basically a fleshy growth with a wrinkled or smooth texture. It mostly resembles the skin in terms of color. However, some people have brown-colored skin tags. Their size and appearance also vary. Some have pearl-shaped skin tags, while others have an irregular shape that may look like warts or raised bumps. Talking about size, they can go up to five millimeters. These tags do not cause any harm, pain, or discomfort. They are non-contagious as well. However, people tend to get them removed owing to aesthetic reasons.

Mostly, skin tags develop in areas that have creases or skin folds, such as armpits, neck, around the groin, under the breasts, etc. They also occur when the skin’s top layer develops extra cells. This is why overweight people are more prone to getting them. They may also develop due to hereditary conditions. Furthermore, type 2 diabetes patients are more likely to develop them. They may also appear without any particular cause. Some pregnant women can get skin tags as well. However, they usually disappear after they deliver. Both men and women are equally likely to develop skin tags.
Although skin tags do not cause any concern, many people opt for removal procedures for aesthetic purposes. Getting them removed will eliminate the need for applying make-up products, which usually contain harmful chemicals and toxins, to conceal them. In some cases, removing a skin tag becomes a necessity if it’s bigger in size or grows bigger with the passage of time. This is due to the fact that it may cause discomfort, irritation or inflammation when it catches in clothing or wearing jewelry. Furthermore, a skin tag that has developed around the eyelid may impact your vision or cause problems while blinking. Removing it results in improved blinking and vision.
At Aesthetics International, our doctor will conduct a thorough analysis to identify the cause of the skin tag development and determine the appropriate treatment. Based on the results, they choose one of the following treatments for skin tag removal:
It is a non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment that deals with various skin concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, and acne scars. It also has proven to be effective in removing skin tags. In this procedure, the CO2 laser light penetrates deep into the skin’s layers on the impacted part and breaks the damaged cells while making space for the regeneration of new cells.
It is a relatively new treatment in which the body is exposed to cold temperature (-140 degrees) for a brief period of time. Also called “freeze therapy”, it uses a beam of vaporized liquid nitrogen on the targeted area, which results in vasoconstriction, i.e. microcirculation bloodstream tightening. Through this procedure, impurities and toxins are flushed from the skin. Apart from removing skin tags, it also supports collagen production and oxygenation of dermal cells.
This is a small surgical procedure in which the doctor uses a scalpel or a pair of surgical scissors to remove the skin tag. It is also known as snipping. This option is considered suitable when skin tags are bigger in size and unresponsive to cryotherapy or laser.
Generally, skin tags are removed after undergoing the appropriate treatment recommended by the doctor. However, in some cases, the patient requires more than one session, particularly if there are multiple skin tags. Also, there may be downtime involved if you have opted for a surgical procedure. With Cryotherapy and CO2 Fractional Laser, there is minimal downtime. These procedures usually come without side effects and are completely safe for the patient.
Many people wonder how to remove skin tags on their own. There are some remedies to remove skin tags at home. However, it is highly not recommended to follow them. You may end up hurting yourself as the procedure to remove skin tags requires expertise and experience.
If you are opting for a surgical procedure to remove a skin tag, the doctor will administer local anesthesia to ensure you do not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
There’s a minor chance of discoloration or minimal scarring at the treatment site after cryotherapy. The excision technique also leaves a small scar.
Mainly, the cost of skin tag removal in Dubai depends on the treatment selected. However, other factors, such as treatment area, the number of skin tags to be removed, the clinic you have selected, the experience of the doctor also impact the total cost.
Your doctor will recommend you the appropriate treatment after examining your skin tags and understanding your medical history. If the scar is bigger, they may recommend excision. However, for smaller tags, non-surgical methods are preferred.
