Skin Tag (DPN) Removal in Orlando, FL

Skin tags and dermatosis papulosa nigra (DPNs) are both types of superficial, benign growths that can vary from a bump the size of a pinhead to the size of an eraser on the top of a pencil. While skin tags and DPNs are harmless, you may want to have them removed as a cosmetic concern. If you're bothered by the appearance or feel of skin tags and/or DPNs, contact Pure Skin Dermatology & Aesthetics to learn more about your options for skin tag removal. Our Orlando, FL team specializes in treating skin tags, DPNs, and other conditions, allowing our patients to feel more confident and comfortable in their skin.

Not everyone necessarily needs skin tags or DPNs removed, but you may wish to have them taken off for your own reasons. Skin tags may get caught in clothes or jewelry, which may cause redness, irritation, or sometimes bleeding. You might also want to eliminate them to improve your appearance if they are on your face or another visible area. To take off a tag, our team may perform a surface excision. Different treatment options include freezing or burning the skin tag, which can be done with minimal scarring or pain. The treatment we recommend will depend on the number of tags or DPNs you want to address, their size, and their location.

Skin tags and DPNs can vary in size and tend to be flesh-colored or brown. They commonly develop as a result of weight gain, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, insulin resistance, and diabetes mellitus. DPNs are usually hereditary but have also been linked with prolonged sun exposure as well as the other factors listed above. The growths might be wrinkled or smooth, and most are attached to the skin with a small stalk. Some potential symptoms of skin tags and DPNs include:

  • Small, flesh-colored bumps
  • Pain (when caught on clothes or jewelry)
  • Skin irritation
  • Inflammation

Dr Grayman genuinely cares for her patients. She takes the time to listen and is very knowledgeable. I’ve been to 2 dermatologist about a scalp condition but she was the first doctor to demonstrate sensitivity, understanding, patience, and provided a treatment plan that actually gives me some hope. Thank you again Dr Grayman.

I started seeing Dr. Grayman in March for my hair and alopecia. In the last several months my skin has cleared and my hair is filling in. I'm very happy with the care I've received and her staff is great never once have I felt rushed. She is a direct communicator which I love. I specially sought out an African America dermatologist and she is more than worth the wait. I have had to wait in office once or twice but I wait anytime I go to the Dr. It happens. Patience and kindness goes a long way.
