What are Skin Tags?
Approximately a quarter of adults have small, benign tumors known as skin tags. The flesh-colored skin growths (also called acrochordon) are harmless and may range from a bump the size of a pinhead to around the size of an eraser on the top of a pencil. Though skin tags don't need medical treatment, you may want skin tags removed if they irritate when they rub against clothes. You may also consider having a skin tag treated if it is in a visible place, such as your eyelid or another area of your face. To remove a skin tag, schedule an appointment with our team at Starwood Med Spa in Frisco, TX.

Skin Tag FAQ
How long do skin tags last?
Unless professionally removed, skin tags are often permanent and will not fall off on their own. To have a skin tag removed, it is important to schedule an appointment with a qualified medical professional.
Is having a skin tag a bad sign for my health?
No. Skin tags are harmless and noncancerous flaps of tissue that strictly affect aesthetics. They do signify any underlying health issues and are absolutely no cause for concern.
What causes skin tags?
Skin tags normally grow from friction by skin rubbing against clothing or other skin. They commonly form under the arms, on the chest, neck, eyelids, and in the groin folds. In women, skin tags can also grow beneath the breasts. Additionally, hormone fluctuations during pregnancy may also cause a rise in the development of skin tags.
