Facial Skin Tags
A skin tag is a small benign lesion which is tag of skin that may have a stalk or peduncle. Skin tags look like a small piece of soft hanging skin. Skin tags can appear on any area of skin on your body but are most often found where skin rubs against skin or clothing. The eyelid and eyelid creases are common sites of skin tags. Skin tags may appear on children but are increasing common as we get older. Most skin tags are an aesthetic concern, do not raise concern and are generally easily removed. We can easily remove skin tags with excellent cosmetic results often using only topical anesthesia. Other lesions that are enlarging or bleed require evaluation to make sure they are not skin cancers.
