How can I get these skin tags removed?
Skin tags are removed by a simple procedure using a laser or a cautery machine. A thin layer of skin numbing cream is applied over the affected areas. Then the skin tags are cauterised with the laser. Then an antibiotic cream is applied over the treated areas. The skin tags usually drop off in three to five days. Do use a sunscreen cream regularly to prevent any pigmentation over the treated area.
