0:00 hi this is dr. Loretta sarado from dr.

0:04 Loretta calm board-certified

0:06 dermatologist and author of six weeks to

0:09 sensational skin let's talk about how to

0:12 remove skin tags basically that trumps

0:15 skin tag refers to a growth of the skin

0:19 which typically is in the form of a

0:21 hanging piece of skin sometimes they can

0:25 be pigmented so that they can look brown

0:27 or sometimes they're just fleshy skin

0:30 tags are commonly found on our neck

0:33 under our arms and our groin really in

0:36 the creases of our skin when you see a

0:39 physician to have them removed and they

0:41 don't need to be removed by the way

0:42 unless they're bothering ya whether

0:44 they're unsightly it's she tender when

0:47 we remove them it's very good to try to

0:50 get them by the root so typically what

0:52 the dermatologist will do is to inject

0:55 your skin with a little bit of novocaine

0:57 to numb your skin and then either

0:59 cauterize them or burn them off or take

1:02 a scalpel and cut them off by the root

1:05 and typically these process will heal

1:07 within just five to seven days
