Before You Go
Nothing needs to be done before the procedure.
What To Expect
Skin tag removal is a simple and fast procedure at a dermatologistâ€™s office. The area around the skin tag is numbed with a topical cream like lidocaine, and then the tag is removed with a pair of surgical scissors.
Alternate methods include cryotherapy, freezing off skin tags with liquid nitrogen.
After the skin tag is removed, the skin underneath will be cleaned, disinfected and bandaged. The entire procedure only takes 10 to 15 minutes per skin tag.
