Unlocking the Mysteries of Skin Tags


In the realm of skincare, skin tags stand as peculiar yet prevalent phenomena. These benign growths, though harmless, can pose aesthetic and sometimes physical discomfort.


Welcome to an in-depth journey into the world of skin tags, presented by PURE Holistic Beauty, Southampton’s esteemed blemish removal experts and finalists at the prestigious English Hair and Beauty Awards 2024.


Understanding Skin Tags: Origins and Causes


Skin tags, medically referred to as acrochordons, are small, soft, flesh-colored growths that protrude from the skin’s surface. While their exact cause remains elusive, factors such as friction, hormonal changes, and genetics are believed to contribute to their formation.

These growths often appear in areas where skin rubs against skin, such as the neck, underarms, and groin.


Skin Tag Types: Exploring Varieties


Skin tags exhibit a diverse array of characteristics, including varying colours and sizes. While most skin tags manifest as flesh-coloured or slightly darker protrusions, they can also appear in shades of brown, red, or black.

Furthermore, these growths may range in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters in diameter, with some individuals experiencing clusters of multiple tags.


Causes of Skin Tags on the Neck: Unraveling the Mystery


Skin tags on the neck are a common occurrence, attributed primarily to friction and skin folds in the area. Activities such as wearing tight collars or necklaces can exacerbate this friction, fostering the development of these benign growths.

Additionally, hormonal fluctuations and genetic predispositions play significant roles in their formation.


Formation of Skin Tags: A Closer Look


The formation of skin tags involves a complex interplay of factors, beginning with the proliferation of skin cells in response to stimuli like friction or hormonal changes.

As these cells accumulate, they form a small protrusion on the skin’s surface, eventually developing into a skin tag. While benign in nature, these growths can cause discomfort or cosmetic concerns, prompting individuals to seek removal.


When to Seek Medical Advice: Navigating Concerns


While most skin tags are harmless, certain circumstances warrant medical attention. If a skin tag exhibits rapid growth, changes in colour or shape, or causes pain or bleeding, it’s essential to consult a dermatologist or GP.

Additionally, individuals with underlying health conditions such as diabetes may be more prone to skin tags and should monitor them closely.
