Radiowave surgery: an easy, low-risk solution for skin tags

Mole, wart and skin tag removal without bleeding or risk of scarring!

Radiowave surgery (also called Radiofrequency surgery) is an effective treatment for skin tags, warts, and moles. It involves passing radio waves through the tissue of the skin using an electrode, which helps to remove a lesion permanently. Your doctor will choose one of the various types of electrodes (fine needle, scalpel blade, loop, etc.) according to the type of the lesion.

It is important to know that radiowave surgery is painless; however you may experience minor redness or swelling during the treatment.

Provide in-depth information about the radiowave surgery including its pros and cons

What does it include?

The radiowave surgery takes only a few minutes and has a fast effect.

The first step is injecting an anesthetic into the skin so that the process is as pain-free as possible. Next, the radiowave machine sends high-frequency waves to the electrode tip. As the tip comes in contact with the lesion, a process called intracellular volatilization boils the water inside the melanocytes that make up the lesion.

The process is repeated until the whole lesion is removed. Finally, the area is ruptured completely.

The recovery time for skin tag removal is one to two weeks. However, the skin may appear slightly reddish during the treatment.

It is recommended to minimize your exposure to UV rays for three months. When going out in the sun, you should use a sunscreen of at least an SPF of 30.

Don’t wait! Book your appointment today at Steady Care Medical, a highly reputable skin tag treatment centers in Orange County.

Skin Tag Removal F.A.Q

Skin tags are common, acquired, benign skin growths that look like a small piece of soft, hanging skin. Skin tags are harmless growths. Some individuals may be more prone to tags (greater than 50-100 tags) either through increased weight, partly combined with heredity or other unknown causes. Males and females are equally prone to developing skin tags. Obesity and being moderately overweight (even temporary increases) dramatically increase the chances of having skin tags. Normal weight individuals with larger breasts are also more prone to skin tags under their breasts. Some small tags spontaneously rub or fall off painlessly and the person may not even know they had a skin tag. Most tags do not fall off on their own and stay around once formed. The medical name for skin tag is acrochordon.

Skin tag is bits of skin- or flesh-colored tissue that project from the surrounding skin from a small, narrow stalk. Some people call these growths “skin tabs” or barnacles. Skin tags typically occur in characteristic locations including the base of the neck, underarms, eyelids, groin folds, and under the breasts (especially where underwire bras rub directly beneath the breasts). Although skin tags may vary somewhat in appearance, they are usually smooth or slightly wrinkled and irregular, flesh-colored or slightly more brown, and hang from the skin by a small stalk. Early or beginning skin tags may be as small as a flattened pinhead-sized bump around the neck. While most tags typically are small (2-5 mm in diameter) at approximately one-third to one-half the size of a pinky fingernail, some skin tags may become as large as a big grape (1 cm in diameter) or a fig (5 cm in diameter).

A thrombosed or clotted skin tag may suddenly change colors and become purple or black. Thrombosed skin tags are usually painless and are more concerning to the person because of the color. Thrombosed skin tags typically may fall off on their own in three to 10 days and don’t require additional treatment.

Skin tags that have changed color or bleed may require your doctor’s evaluation and reassurance. Rarely, thrombosed skin tags may be a sign of another condition and need to be biopsied.

There are no currently medically approved creams for the removal of skin tags. Skin tags are removed usually by physical methods like cutting off or tying off with dental floss. It is not advisable to use unapproved products like Dermasil, wart removers, essential oils, nail polish, toothpaste, or hair-removal creams like Neat or Nair. Trial uses of unapproved creams may cause irritation and possible secondary complications.

Except for the cosmetic appearance, they essentially cause no physical pain or discomfort. These tiny skin growths generally cause symptoms when they are repeatedly irritated as, for example, by the collar or in the groin. Cosmetic removal for unsightly appearance is perhaps the most common reason they are removed. Occasionally, a tag may require removal because it has become irritated and red from bleeding (hemorrhage) or black from twisting and dying of the skin tissue (necrosis). Sometimes, they may become snagged by clothing, jewelry, pets, or seatbelts, causing pain or discomfort. Overall these are very benign growths that have no cancer (malignant) potential.

Occasionally, a tag may spontaneously fall off without any pain or discomfort. This may occur after the tag has twisted on itself at the stalk base, interrupting the blood flow to the tag.

Microscopically, a skin tag looks like a small hanging pearl. Laboratory preparation of the tissue is required before looking at the skin tag under the microscope. The skin is stained with a stain called hematoxylin and eosin (“H&E”). Under the microscope, there is a colored spherical tissue attached to a small stalk. The purple outer layer (epidermis) overlies a pink core (dermis).

The outer layer of the skin (the epidermis) shows overgrowth (hyperplasia), and it encloses an underlying layer of skin (the dermis) in which the normally present collagen fibers appear abnormally loose and swollen. Usually there are no hairs, moles, or other skin structures present in skin tags.

While the majority of skin tags removed are discarded into special medical waste containers, sometimes tissue is sent for microscopic exam by a specialist doctor called a pathologist. Irregular skin growths that are larger, bleed, or have an unusual presentation may require pathology examination to make sure there are no irregular cells or skin cancers.

Some common conditions that can mimic skin tags include seborrheic keratosis, moles, warts, cysts, milia, neurofibromas, and nevus lipomatosis. Rarely, skin cancers like basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma may mimic skin tags.

No. There is not strong evidence to suggest that common skin tags are contagious. Most likely, people do not catch them from anyone and do not transmit them to anyone.

While warts are caused by a virus called HPV and are known to be very contagious, most skin tags are not thought to be caused by HPV. A small study showed that some skin tags may be associated with a virus infection.

Skin tags are a type of harmless skin growth or tumor, but they are completely benign. Tags are generally not cancerous (malignant) and don’t become cancerous if left untreated. There are extremely rare instances where a skin tag may become precancerous or cancerous. Skin tag-like bumps that bleed, grow, or display multiple colors like pink, brown, red, or black can require a biopsy to exclude other causes like skin cancer.Skin tags are a type of harmless skin growth or tumor, but they are completely benign.

There is no evidence that removing a skin tag will causes more tags to grow. There is no expectation of causing skin tags to “seed” or spread by removing them. In reality, some people are simply more prone to developing skin tags and may have new growths periodically. Some individuals require periodic removal of tags at annual or even quarterly intervals.

More than half if not all of the general population is reported to have skin tags at some time in their lives. Although tags are generally acquired (not present at birth) and may occur in anyone, more often they arise in adulthood. They are much more common in middle age, and they tend to increase in prevalence up to age 60. Children and toddlers  may also develop skin tags in these underarm and neck areas. Since skin tags are thought to arise more readily in areas of skin friction or rubbing, tags are also more common in overweight people.

Hormone elevations, such as those seen during pregnancy, may cause an increase in the formation of skin tags, as skin tags are more frequent in pregnant women. Tags are essentially harmless and do not have to be treated unless they are bothersome. Skin tags that are bothersome may be easily removed during or after pregnancy, typically by a dermatologist.

Skin tags are a benign condition and not directly associated with any other major medical conditions. Skin tags are commonly found on healthy people and do not have to be removed.

Skin tags can occur almost anywhere on the body where there is skin. However, the top two favorite areas for skin tags are the neck and armpits. Other areas include the eyelids, upper chest (particularly under the female breasts), buttock folds, and groin folds. Tags are typically thought to occur in characteristic friction locations where skin rubs against skin or clothing. More plump or chunkier babies may also develop skin tags in areas where skin rubs against skin like the sides of the neck. Younger children may develop tags at the upper eyelid areas, often in areas where they may rub. Older children and preteens may develop tags in the underarm area from friction and repetitive irritation from sports.
