Skin Tag Removal
Skin tags are benign, painless growths on the skin, often found in skin folds or areas prone to friction. While they are harmless, they can be cosmetically bothersome, especially as they become more common with age. Midwest Express Clinic offers skin tag removal services to help you achieve the clear skin you desire.

Understanding Skin Tags:
Skin tags are small, soft growths that typically share the same color as your skin. They commonly develop in areas where the skin rubs against itself, such as eyelids, neck, armpits, chest, or in the groin and buttocks region. It’s not uncommon for pregnant individuals to develop skin tags due to hormonal changes. Here are some key facts about skin tags:
- They are harmless and painless.
- They can appear in varying quantities, from one to as many as a hundred on a single individual.
- Obese individuals are more likely to have skin tags compared to those with a healthy weight.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Does removing a skin tag increase my chances for more skin tags to grow in that area?
While there is no evidence that skin tag growth will increase at the removal site, certain people are more prone to skin tag growth.
Is a skin tag cancerous or tumorous?
No. However, if it bleeds, grows or reveals multiple colors, this may be skin cancer and not a skin tag.
Can I get a skin tag from someone else?
No, skin tags are not contagious.
Is skin tag removal covered by insurance?
We recommend checking with your insurance provider first, as most will view this procedure as cosmetic, so it will often be self-pay. Please note, we now accept Medicaid.
I accidentally shaved my skin tag off. Is that okay?
Yes. If the area bleeds apply pressure until it stops bleeding.
