Hi, I'm Dr. Lisa Benest, dermatologist in Los Angeles, California, and today I want to talk to you about how to get rid of skin tags. Skin tags are little flaps of skin that form on areas of friction on the body. We typically see them around the neck, from the collars rubbing, as well as under the arms. The can occur in the groin, and the eyelids as well. Some people are prone to skin tags, you'll see that it runs in the family, and they have dozens of skin tags in these areas. But, all adults will get one or two, or even a few throughout their lives. We also tend to see skin tags in people who are overweight, as the folds of the skins are more likely to rub. The most common way we get rid of skin tags is to remove them with a scissor. I'm going to demonstrate that method to you today. This is my patient, Ernie, and he's come in today to remove some of the skin around his neck, and under his arms. Ernie has skin tags over here around the neck. You can see that they hang, or they're a little bit floppy. Today I'm going to demonstrate for you how we remove these skin tags, and the tools are simple. I have a gauze, and a particular scissor in my hand, used for removing skin tags. And, you'll feel a little pinch, Ernie. We go along each one, remove them one at a time. Ernie, you're doing great. Thank you. And, you can see instantly that the tags are removed, and the skin is much smoother. It may take a few days for some of these spot to resolve, there may be little scabs in the area. Thank you for watching. I'm Dr. Lisa Benest, dermatologist in Los Angeles, California, and this is how we get rid of skin tags.
