Soft fibromas Soft fibromas
(or skin tags) are benign tumours on the skin, most often found on the neck, eyelids, armpits and groin. The cause of their development is unknown, although it is thought to be mostly genetically conditioned. They are very common, occurring in about 50% of the population. They are soft, flesh-coloured or slightly darker, often on the on a thin piece of tissue called a stalk. They do not show any symptoms.
How are fibromas removed?
Since it is a completely benign lesion, its removal is not required. It is most often done for aesthetic reasons. Also, since fine blood vessels are located in the central part, sometimes skin tag can get twisted causing a disruption of circulation, leading to inflammation and pain.
Here at Dermatim, we use radiofrequency
removal under local anaesthesia. After the intervention, superficial scabs can be found on the skin, and they fall off in a few days without leaving a scar.
