Skin Tags

Conveniently Located to Serve Houston and the Greater Houston Area

Skin tags, also known as acrochordons, are small, benign growths that commonly occur on the skin’s surface. While skin tags are generally harmless, they can be bothersome or cosmetically undesirable for some people. At Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, our experienced team offers safe and effective removal options for skin tags to address your concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are skin tags?

Skin tags are soft, flesh-colored growths that typically appear in areas where skin rubs against skin or clothing, such as the neck, underarms, groin, or eyelids. These growths are composed of collagen fibers, blood vessels, and surrounded by a thin layer of skin. Skin tags are common and may develop in individuals of all ages and skin types, but they are more prevalent in adults and tend to increase with age.

What are the treatments options for skin tags?

Treatment options for skin tags include: 

  • Excision, in which the tag is cut out with a scalpel or scissors.
  • Electrodesiccation, in which the skin tag is burned off with an electric current.
  • Cryotherapy, in which the skin tag is frozen off using liquid nitrogen.

Skin tag treatments are not typically covered by insurance. 

If you have concerns about skin tags or are interested in exploring removal options, contact Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation with our experienced dermatologists. We are dedicated to providing personalized care and effective solutions to address your skin concerns and enhance your overall skin health.
