About Skin Tags
Dr. Reuel Aspacio and his team of certified medical professionals at Summerlin Dermatology encounter a gamut of benign skin growths on a daily basis. Skin tags are flesh-colored lesions typically seen on the neck, the armpits, below the breasts, and even the groin. These are usually asymptomatic. However, some patients find them itchy or irritating.
These flesh-colored skin growths (also known as acrochordon) are harmless and may range from a pinhead-sized bump to the size of a pencil eraser. While skin tags do not require medical treatment, you may want skin tags removed if they create irritation when they rub against clothing. You may also consider having a skin tag removed if it's in a visible location, like your eyelid or another area of your face. Evaluation by a skilled dermatologist such as Dr. Aspacio may ease your anxiety about these lesions. If you are seeking a cosmetically elegant result as a treatment option for skin growths, lesions, skin tags or seborrheic keratosis in the Las Vegas, NV area, schedule an appointment at Summerlin Dermatology.

"Dr. Aspacio is an outstanding Dermatologist! Upon entering the building I noticed how beautiful the facility is! Super clean with office staff waiting with smiles to assist me. Very Welcoming and inviting to say the least! Dr. Aspacio was extremely friendly, professional, informative and patient with me. He made me feel comfortable with his knowledge of every question I asked regarding my pending injections. We proceeded with our discussed plan. With every injection he would explain what was happening plus asking if I was OK! Very Very patient man! Upon completion of my injections he handed me a mirror to review my face where I proceeded to cry with JOY! He is an artist who made me feel overjoyed with my newer fresh appearance!!! He even got a tissue to wipe one of my dripping tears! Who does that? A kind, compassionate Dr who knows his stuff, that's WHO! The next day I received a call from the officer manager Zina who was checking in on me. Her phone call made me well up again. Her genuine concern for me is heartfelt. She added such a personal touch to this visit. Thank you Dr. Aspacio /Zina for an EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE!"- M.S. / Yelp / Nov 08, 2019

Skin tags are so common that it is reported many adults have at least one. Skin tags typically develop from the friction of skin rubbing against clothing or other skin. They most commonly form in the armpits, on the chest, neck, eyelids, and in the folds of the groin. In women, skin tags may also develop beneath the breasts. You may develop skin tags more often if you are overweight or as you age. In addition, hormone elevations during pregnancy can also cause an increase in the formation of skin tags.
A skin tag is either flesh colored or brown. They can vary in size from as small as 1mm to around the size of a grape. The growth may be smooth or wrinkled, and most are attached to the skin by a small stalk. Skin tags do not cause pain and they are not contagious. If the skin tag gets twisted and cut off from the blood supply, it may turn red or black.
Skin tags often do not need treatment, but you may want one or a group of them removed. Skin tags can get caught in jewelry or clothing, which can cause irritation, redness, and sometimes bleeding. You may also want to eliminate them for cosmetic reasons (if it is on your face or another visible area). To remove a skin tag, Dr. Aspacio may perform a surface layer surgical excision; other treatment options include destruction by electrocautery, cryotherapy, or laser.
