Skin Tag Removal

 

At LiLyDermis medspa in NW Calgary, we offer painless skin tag and other skin lesion removal on face, neck, under arms, and body.

Skin tags are small growths that can be the same color as or slightly darker than the surrounding skin. Both men and women can develop skin tags. They are common in warm and moist areas where the skin rubs against itself or areas where clothing usually rubs, such as around the neck, underarms, groin and chest and may also be found around the eyes.

Reasons of skin tags:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy

Skin tags are harmless and do not usually cause pain or discomfort. These tiny growths are benign but can be bothersome. However, you may consider having skin tags removed if they are affecting your self esteem. You can also have your skin tags removed if you don’t like the way they look or feel. Skin tags cannot be removed during pregnancy.
