What Causes Skin Tags?

Skin tags, medically known as acrochordon, form naturally over time and are not a sign of an ongoing illness or cancer. Skin tags can occur in both genders, but are much more common in women than men. Skin tags can occur anywhere in the body, but most frequently appear on the:

  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Underarm
  • Under the breasts
  • Around the groin

Age and weight are the main contributing factors that cause skin tags. Skin tags appear much more frequently in the elderly, and much more frequently in those who have recently gained weight.

Regardless of the cause, skin tags should not be treated with “natural” skin tag removal or home skin tag removal, as these methods are unsafe and untested. The best skin tag removal is performed by an experienced medical professional with skin tag surgery.

  • A small amount of anesthesia is applied.
  • Utilizing a scalpel, the skin tag is removed.
  • The area is stitched up, if necessary

Skin tag removal is an outpatient procedure and is considered minimally-invasive. As such, it has very little recovery time and scars that are tiny or not visible altogether. Skin tags vary in amount and size from person to person, so the cost of skin tag removal depends on your individual treatment needs.
