Skin Tags Removal


What Causes Skin Tags?

Skin tags, medically known as acrochordons, are composed of loose collagen fibers and blood vessels surrounded by skin. They can vary in size from a few millimeters to a few centimeters and are typically flesh-colored or slightly darker. While the exact cause of skin tags is unknown, they are commonly associated with:

  • Friction: Skin tags often develop in areas where the skin rubs against itself or clothing.
  • Genetics: A tendency to develop skin tags can run in families.
  • Hormonal Changes: Pregnancy and hormonal fluctuations can increase the likelihood of developing skin tags.
  • Age: Skin tags are more common in older adults.

Advanced Skin Tag Removal Treatments in LA

At Cupid Lips, we offer a range of minimally invasive treatments to remove skin tags safely and effectively. Our treatments are designed to provide quick results with minimal discomfort and downtime.


Cryotherapy involves freezing the skin tag with liquid nitrogen, causing it to fall off naturally.

  • How It Works: Liquid nitrogen is applied to the skin tag, freezing the tissue and causing it to die. Over time, the frozen skin tag will fall off, revealing healthy skin underneath.
  • Benefits: Quick procedure, minimal discomfort, and effective for removing multiple skin tags.

Laser Therapy

Laser therapy uses concentrated light energy to remove skin tags with precision.

  • How It Works: The laser targets the skin tag, breaking down the tissue without damaging the surrounding skin. This method is particularly effective for smaller skin tags.
  • Benefits: Precise removal, minimal downtime, and reduced risk of scarring.


Electrosurgery uses high-frequency electrical currents to cut through or remove skin tags.

  • How It Works: An electrode is used to deliver electrical currents to the skin tag, cutting through or vaporizing the tissue. This method is effective for larger skin tags and those in sensitive areas.
  • Benefits: Effective removal, minimal bleeding, and quick recovery time.

Surgical Excision

Surgical excision involves cutting out the skin tag with a scalpel.

  • How It Works: The area around the skin tag is numbed, and the skin tag is carefully cut out with a scalpel. Stitches may be used to close the wound, depending on the size and location of the skin tag.
  • Benefits: Complete removal, suitable for larger skin tags, and provides a sample for biopsy if needed.
