Skin tags are bothersome and often irritating if they get caught on clothing or jewelry. Don’t live with those annoying–and embarrassing–little tags any more. Let About Face quickly and safely remove those skin tags returning you to the smoother skin that you deserve.
A skin tag, also known as an acrochordon, cutaneous papilloma, cutaneous tag, fibroepithelial polyp, fibroma molluscum, fibroma pendulum, papilloma colli, soft fibroma, and Templeton skin tag, is a small tag of skin which may have a peduncle (stalk) – they look like a small piece of soft, hanging skin. Skin tags are very common and generally occur after midlife. Skin tags can appear on any part of your body’s surface, but most typically exist in areas where skin may rub against skin, such as the eyelids, armpit area, under the breasts, groin, upper chest, and neck.
Skin tags are invariably benign – non cancerous – tumors of the skin which cause no symptoms, unless they are repeatedly rubbed or scratched, as may happen with clothing, jewelry, or when shaving. Some people are more susceptible to tags, partly due to weight and heredity. People with diabetes and pregnant women tend to be more prone to skin tags.
