Skin Tag Removal – Adelaide
Skin tags (medically known as acrochordon) are very common growths on the skin. In fact, studies show that nearly everyone develops a skin tag on their skin during their lifetime. Skin tags are brown or flesh-coloured, non-cancerous, benign growths that do not have any symptoms. Skin tags are not contagious. The majority of people with skin tags desire to have them removed due to their unattractive appearance or any discomfort that comes with having the skin tag rubbed repeatedly by clothing or jewellery. The most common areas for skin tags to appear are:
- Neck area
- Under the breasts
- Groin folds
