Basics About Acrochordon: To Treat Acrochordon

About

Growth on the skin that is painless and non-cancerous.
It is a common and benign skin condition that is found in individuals who suffer from obesity.

  • Causes and Treatment for Acrochordon
  • Effective ways of removing Acrochordon:
  • Cryotherapy – liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the skin tag.
  • Surgical removal- scissors or scalpel is used to remove the skin tag.
  • Electrosurgery- electric energy is used in high frequency to burn off the skin tag.
  • Ligation- A surgical thread is used to tie the skin tag and cut the blood flow thus removing the skin tag safely.

It is not advisable to remove the skin tags on your own. There are many websites that offer DIY instructions to remove skin tags by either tying them with a string or with an application of a chemical ointment. Removal of skin tags will often result in bleeding, infections or even burns. Hence, only professional removal is recommended.
