Skin tags

They are benign tumors that form mainly in regions of folds such as the neck, armpits, groin, eyelids, and submammary folds.

At Hoogstra Medical Centers we have several types of lasers that allow us to treat these tumors effectively, quickly, painlessly and with immediate recovery.

What are skin tags?

Skin tags are not warts, they are fibroepithelial polyps or pedunculated papules. They are soft in consistency and can be white or dark and usually present in the 50 % of people over 50 years of age. Skin tags are not viral in origin and are therefore not contagious. The treatment is solely for aesthetic purposes.

What is the cause?

There is not enough research to determine the causes of skin tags. Despite this, they are common with age. They are also common in people who have diabetes and in people who are overweight. They are also hereditary.

Remove skin tags with Erbium Laser treatment

The laser used in our medical centers produces microperforation fractions keeping the skin around these perforations intact. This allows the skin that receives these perforations to regenerate (heal) from the outside to the inside, improving the skin more quickly, and with less risk of deep injury. It enters the skin generating an increase in temperature and, consequently, the production of collagen is stimulated.

In one session many injuries can be eliminated, after each session you can immediately continue with your activity.
