Top Dermatologist in Chantilly, VA area provides top-notch skin tag removal treatments

Skin Tag Removal Treatments, Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc

Not everyone sees a dermatologist only for a severe medical reason (cancerous moles, for example) or cosmetic skin treatments (Botox for example). Sometimes, you can have a problem that is neither medically threatening or cosmetic. Skin tags are one of these things. Skin tags are harmless but can be embarrassing or irritating. Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc., serving the Chantilly, VA area, wants all our patients to love their skin. This means not just appearance but also comfort. That’s why we offer patients access to superior skin tag removal treatments.

Skin tags:

These are benign skin growths that often resemble tiny balloons suspended on slender stalk-like skin growths. People can have anywhere from just one to hundreds. Sometimes these growths fall off on their own, many will stubbornly cling once formed. The medical name for it is acrochordon. They often start out as small, pinhead-sized bumps. Many remain small, but sometimes a skin tag can grow to the size of a large grape.

Where they often occur:

  • Neck
  • Armpits
  • Eyelids
  • Upper chest
  • Groin fold areas


Ways to remove skin tags:

  • Freezing: We utilize liquid nitrogen to remove the skin tag.
  • Burning: We use electric cauterization methods to eliminate the skin tag.


Other information to know:

  • It’s best to have a dermatologist remove any bothersome skin tags. We have the knowledge and expertise to determine if it is just a skin tag and the most effective removal technique.
  • No medically approved creams exist to remove skin tags. It’s advised not to use wart removers, tea tree oil, tooth paste, nail polish or hair removal creams. These can cause additional complications.

If you are concerned about a skin tag or multiple tags, come see us. We can determine the best treatment plan for you! Call today to schedule your consultation, (866) 808-3140.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
