Skin tags are the soft skin growths that often appear within the skin folds of the neck, eyelids, breasts, armpits, and groin area. These tags are noncancerous loose collagen fibers and are very common among men and women of all ages. If you have skin tags and want to explore removal or treatment, come see us at Rapid Healthcare. We offer skin tag treatment at our walk-in clinic in Bolingbrook, IL.
Skin tags can occur on individuals of all ages and ethnic groups but are more likely to appear among older adults, diabetes patients and overweight individuals. Although harmless and painless, these growths could come in the way of clothing and some jewelry depending on their location. Skin tags may be rubbed off or cut during shaving, increasing risk of skin infections. Skin tags can also be an aesthetic concern when they are in visible areas such as the eyelids, neck or facial region. Skin tag removal can eliminate issues with these small skin growths for improved health and confidence.
Skin Tag Removal
At Rapid Healthcare, our clinic offers safe and efficient surgical diagnosis and procedures for skin tags. We can perform skin tag removal treatments such as cauterization, electrocautery, ligation, surgery, and cryosurgery. After the procedure, the clinic will ensure that the patient understands post-surgery or post-treatment care. The telehealth service we offer is helpful for follow-up checkups as well.
Although there are ways to remove skin tags at home, it is best to consult a healthcare provider before considering home treatment. Some warts or cancerous moles may look similar to skin tags – you do not want to leave a dangerous skin growth undiagnosed. It is best to have skin tags removed by a medical professional, which can reduce your risk of scars and infection from the treatment.
