What is Skin Tag Removal?
Skin tags are painless, noncancerous growths on the skin that can appear anywhere from the armpits to the neck, thighs, eyelids, and groin. While all skin tags are completely harmless and don’t cause any physical discomfort, many of our patients are not happy with the way they look on the body. For this reason, Dr. Amy B. Lewis is happy to offer quick and easy skin tag removal. The process can be done in a matter of seconds and does not require any downtime or recovery period.
How Much does Skin Tag Removal Cost?
The price of your skin tag removal will vary depending on the number of skin tags you wish to get removed and your current health insurance plan. To get a better idea of how much your skin tag removal will cost, come in for a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her staff.
What Can I Expect During my Skin Tag Removal?
Before your skin tag removal begins, Dr. Lewis will apply a numbing agent to the treated area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Lewis will gently and carefully snip the skin tag from the body before applying an antiseptic and a bandage. Patients report this procedure being very comfortable and very quick. After your skin tags are removed, you are able to return to your normal daily activities, including work.
