Skin Tags

Common skin tags are aesthetically unpleasing and at times uncomfortable if they are pulled or torn due to friction and location.


Visible Effects

Skin tags are defined as soft, harmless tissue that projects out from the skin’s surface. They are comprised of loosely formed collagen fibres and blood vessels. They are commonly found on the face, neck, underarms and areas of skin chafing such as the groin. Skin tags can be flesh-coloured or darker and range in size from a few millimetres to five centimetres.

Underlying Causes

The cause skin tags is unknown although they are common in areas of skin chafing and irritation. They may be familial.
