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 was very efficient and to the point. She removed, shaved, froze, biopsied & cauterized several moles that I have had for a long time very quickly and painlessly. She and her staff are friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
