Skin Tag Removal in New York

Skin tags, also called acrochordons, are very common skin growths. They are not cancerous and 25% of all adults have at least one skin tag! If someone in your family has skin tags, it’s likely that you will eventually develop them.

Skin tags are simply an outgrowth of normal skin. They are usually the same color as the rest of your skin, although they can be slightly lighter or darker. They usually occur under the arms, on the neck, or in the groin area. They may become irritated by clothing, friction, jewelry. Skin can become painful after any trauma such as being torn. Board-certified dermatologic surgeon Dr. Rokhsar offers painless treatment for skin tags to NYC and Garden City patients.


Skin tags can be removed a few different ways. They can be snipped off with scissors or forceps. Cryosurgery is an option in which a liquid is sprayed or applied to the tag, causing it to freeze and fall off. Electrodessication is another option that sends electrical signals that destroy the skin tag cells. Once an existing tag is removed, it will not return. Skin tag removal is quick, with no recovery time, and provides you with immediate relief and better looking skin.
