Skin tags are harmless fleshy skin growths, usually skin-colored. Skin tags develop in almost one-third of the adult population and are therefore very common. Skin tags are not dangerous but many choose to remove them because they are uncomfortable or simply for cosmetic reasons.
No, it is not dangerous to remove skin tags! You can easily do it with the help of TagMole, which uses an old and proven technique by cutting off the blood supply to the skin tag, making it shrink and simply fall off within 1-2 weeks with minimal spot left afterwards.
No one can say exactly why people get skin tags. Genetics would seem to play a role, since they tend to run in families. Hormonal changes in pregnancy may promote the development of skin tags. Obese individuals and individuals over 50 years of age often get them, although practically anyone can develop them.
Skin tags, moles and age warts are different, though sometimes, to a non-professional eye, they might look similar.

Skin tags can be removed in a clinic or, just as easily, in your own home environment. However, if removing a skin tag at home, please use a well-known and by doctor recommended method, like cutting off the blood supply to the skin tag with the help of a thread. This is the method that TagMole uses.
You can remove harmless elevated skin growths with the help of TagMole, for example skin tags, soft fibromas or small age warts on a shaft. Please have a look at the Gallery section for before and after pictures.
