Non Laser Papilloma Removal (Skin Tags)

Skin tags are harmless tumors that form primarily in the skin folds. They also occur on the face, usually on the eyelids. They range in size from two to five millimeters, although larger ones have been seen. The skin tags may be smooth or irregular in appearance. These may be raised from the surface of the skin on a fleshy stalk. Microscopically, skin tags consist of a fibrovascular core, sometimes also with fat cells, covered by an unremarkable epidermis. The removal of skin tags is mainly for cosmetic reason. Sometime these may tangle with clothing and jewelry and irritate the skin. The cause of skin formation is not clearly understood. There is some correlation between skin tags and obesity, diabetes, pregnancy, ageing and heredity. Skin tags are removed using a treatment procedure. These may grow back again in the same area.
