Remove Skin Tags using AVC

Skin tags are the extra pouching out of skin which stays connected to the skin. They are made out of collagen fibre and blood vessels. You will find skin tags mostly around the neck region, underarms, groins, eyelids, back etc. Also, we would like to mention that these are normally found in people suffering from obesity.


Skin tags don't occur at the time of birth, however, people start having them because of changes happening in their lifestyle. You will notice them on around 25% adults. Also, this can be genetical - can be inherited from ancestors.

How to recognise a skin tag

Skin tags are generally brown or flesh colour. They can be smooth, wrinkled and their size may also vary. However, apart from brown and flesh colour, they can be red and black in colour if they are twisted on the blood supply. They may hurt you and can also result in bleeding. Therefore, it is very necessary to treat them correctly and remove them as soon as possible.
