One person may have anywhere from one to over 100 skin tags, and almost everyone will develop a skin tag at some point in their life. Obesity is associated with skin tags, and middle-aged, obese adults are most prone to skin tags.
Treatments include freezing, tying off with a thread or suture, or cutting off the skin tag. Removing a skin tag does not cause more to grow, some people are just more prone to forming skin tags.
At Skin deep we use the Ellman Surgitron to easily remove skin tags without scarring.
