Skin tags and seborrheic keratoses are benign, excess growths of skin which commonly occur on the neck, underarms, groins and eyelids. This is easily treated using Electrosurgery after the application of a topical anaesthetic cream. It is an outpatient procedure which can be performed in less than 30 minutes. The majority of patients heal with no scars. The downtime is 5-7 days following the procedure, after which the scabs fall off. Normal daily activities can be resumed during this down time.
