Skin Tag Removal Santa Monica: Kare Plastic Surgery on Montana Avenue

Mole Removal

Skin tags and moles on the skin can develop over months to years and look like hanging pieces of skin along areas of the neck, eyelids, armpits, and thighs. Although very common, skin tag removal is usually delayed for years until an opportune time arises to have them removed. Traditionally, surgery was performed to remove skin tags on the face and body; but newer innovations in RF treatment, laser therapy, and electrodessication with Hyfrecation can remove skin tags with minimal risk. 

Skin tags usually occur in areas of skin-to-skin contact. They are especially common during the summer months and in women who are or have been pregnant. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian at Kare Plastic Surgery in Santa Monica uses a combination of radiofrequency, laser, or hyfrecation to clear skin tags from the skin. Downtime is minimal with patients seeing immediate resolution of the problem during the clinic visit.
