Skin Tag Removal
A cosmetic nuisance to people and can be easily removed
Skin Tag Removal
Dermatologists with cosmetic training like Dr. Tzu are specialists in the removal of skin tags, moles, and other benign growths for aesthetic reasons.
Skin tags are non-cancerous growths of the skin, most commonly found on the neck, armpit, back, and groin. Skin tags are often a cosmetic nuisance to people and can be easily removed. The procedure is quick, safe, and there is no recovery time.
Keep in mind that normal skin tag removal is generally not a service covered by insurance, unless there is true medical necessity as deemed by your dermatologist.
Dermatologist Dr. Julia Tzu’s Perspective on SKin Tag removal
“Most adults develop skin tags somewhere on their body and dislike their appearance. Skin tag removals are therefore one of the most routine procedures performed in my office. It is quick, painless, safe, and offers immediately satisfying results.” – Dr. Julia Tzu, MD, FAAD
Treatments for Removing Skin Tags
There are various treatment options for removing skin tags, and the best option will be determined by your dermatologist. In summary, the treatment options generally involve:
- Cutting off a skin tag with surgical equipment
- Freezing the skin tag with liquid nitrogen (also called cryotherapy)
- Burning a skin tag off using specialized high-energy electrical equipment
While these procedures may sound difficult, they are routine procedures that are done on an almost daily basis at Wall Street Dermatology. Dr. Tzu has the medical knowledge and experience from thousands of skin tag removals to recommend the best path for you.
Skin Tag Removal Cost in NYC
Unlike medical procedures, skin tag removal is generally not a service covered by insurance. As a result, it is paid for out-of-pocket by the patient. The cost per routine skin tag removal for cosmetic purposes can range between $150 to $300, depending on location and size. The cost can be more if there are multiple skin tags being removed.
