Skin Tag Removal

 

Innovation Dermatology offers skin tag removal services.   Skin tags are small, soft growths usually on the neck, eyelids, upper trunk and body folds. They can develop on anyone, but are more common as we age.  Skin tags are typically harmless.  People often like to remove them for two reasons:

1. They are located in an undesirable spot and are unsightly

2. They can become irritated when rubbed.

The removal of a benign (non-cancerous) growth is considered a cosmetic service. A doctor’s referral for a removal procedure is not required.  Removal services are not covered by Alberta Health Care and will be charged to the patient directly.  Patients may have this service covered under their own personal health care plans.

Our Skin Tag Removal Process:

A removal is considered a minor surgery that could involve a local anesthetic.  Procedures can include cutting, freezing and burning the growths.  Your Dermatologist will determine which procedure is best for you.

  • WHAT TO EXPECT:
  • Treatment time under 30 minutes
  • Painless to slight sting
  • Minimal downtime

What Our Clients Say

“I found Dr. Day very caring and supportive however what an absolutely
incredible and compassionate staff he has! I’d trust every single one of
his members any day with my skin needs! I had nothing but good things
to say as I left his clinic, but I can’t say enough about that crew! Thank
you and I’ll definitely will be coming back.”

“Dr. Day was very kind and helpful to my mother who was diagnosed
with a basal cell skin cancer. He booked us quickly for surgery, answered
our questions and did a wonderful job in removing the skin cancer on
her cheek. She has since healed well.”

“I was sent for a mole removal which went so well I asked Dr. Day
about another problem. He booked me back and then told me it was
a kind of psoriasis. I went on treatment and am way way better. Finally,
the itch it gone. He was busy but he delivers results! He took great care
of me! Would definitely recommend to others.”
