Burke Laser Skin Tag Removal
Noninvasive & Painless Treatment
A skin tag may not be harmful, but that doesn’t make it any more pleasant to have on your body. Skin tags can occur anywhere, but they are most commonly found on the neck, chest, back, armpits, and under the breasts. Skin tags are not cancerous and they do not cause pain. However, trying to remove a skin tag on your own can lead to infection and scarring.
If you wish to have a skin tag removed, the skilled dermatology team at Skin Deep Laser Services in Burke can help. We can safely remove skin tags using our state-of-the-art laser technology.
Schedule your skin tag removal today by calling (703) 639-4446.
How to Prevent Scarring When Removing Skin Tags
There are many treatments that can remove skin tags, such as freezing, burning, or cutting it off. Unfortunately, these methods often leave behind an unsightly scar and they rarely eliminate the entire growth. At Skin Deep, we use fractional lasers to target the root of skin tags deep beneath the skin, removing them entirely so that they will not grow back.
Once the tag is removed, we can use laser skin rejuvenation treatments to remove redness and prevent scarring. These treatments remove layers of damaged skin so that newer, healthier skin can grow in its place. A skin tag can usually be removed in one treatment, but it may take several treatments over the course of a few weeks to help the surrounding skin heal.
Can Skin Tags Be Prevented?
Most people will have at least one skin tag at some point in their life. If you notice them popping up on your skin on a regular basis, there are some things you can do to try and reduce their frequency.
Tips for preventing skin tags:
- Avoid wearing necklaces other jewelry that creates friction on the skin
- Do not try to self-remove a skin tag, as these will often grow back
- Keep blood sugar levels low
- Exercise frequently
Skin tags occur more often in adults and frequently occur during pregnancy. People who are obese or who have diabetes are also more prone to develop skin tags.
