We offer innovative treatments using radiofrequency, laser therapy, and electrodesiccation with Hyfrecation to remove skin tags with minimal risk and downtime. We aim to assist you in attaining smoother and clearer skin, empowering you to feel more at ease and self-assured in your own skin.

The Day of Your Procedure

We recognize that the day of your skin tag removal procedure may be filled with a blend of anticipation and excitement. Dr. Murrell can remove skin tags quickly and safely, often in our office under local anesthesia. The procedure may involve freezing the skin tag with liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy), burning it off with an electric needle or probe (electrocautery), or cutting it away with a scalpel. Our skilled dermatologists may numb the area with an agent like epinephrine or lidocaine to reduce bleeding. If the skin tag is large, stitches may be needed to close the wound.

Recovery and Results

You can expect a relatively quick and straightforward recovery following your skin tag removal procedure. It's common to notice a bit of swelling, redness, or slight discomfort in the treated area. However, these effects usually diminish within a few days. You may be advised to keep the area clean and apply any recommended topical treatments to aid in the healing process. After your procedure, our medical team will provide you with thorough post-care instructions, guaranteeing a seamless and comfortable recovery process.

Skin Tag Removal

After undergoing skin tag removal, you can look forward to enjoying smoother, clearer skin with a reduction in the appearance of skin tags and moles. Numerous patients notice an immediate enhancement in the treated regions, with the complete results becoming increasingly evident as any transient redness or swelling subsides. You'll be able to embrace a renewed sense of confidence and comfort in your skin, allowing you to feel more at ease in your daily life.
