Skin Tag Removal training certification is a workshop where participants learn a dermatological procedure to remove benign skin lesions. Skin Tag is named in medicine as a fibroepithelial polyp. This is a benign growth of skin tissue attached to the skin by a connecting stalk composed of a core of fibers and ducts, nerve cells, fat cells, and a covering or epidermis.

The skin tags are found on the face and parts of the body or where the skin creases or folds occur, such as the lines of the neck, around the eyelids, underarms, and underneath the breasts. Although some people are more susceptible than other skin tags, it seems to be associated with hyperinsulinemia, and overweight and obese clients may carry this type of lesion.

A dermatological lesion practitioner should first define the characteristics of the lesion and to be classified as a benign skin lesion before starting any removal procedure.

Because skin tag/mole removal is considered an invasive procedure, there are some restrictions in certain States of the USA and other countries about who can perform skin tag removal. Aspirants to this course should review all regulations about this practice in the area where this treatment will be performed. In Florida, MD, ARNP, and PA may apply this procedure.

Medical Assistant Dermatology and Nursing Dermatology could perform this treatment only under a physician’s direct supervision and previous evaluation. There are diverse methods for skin tag removal. Among them, the use of the current device is the most used in aesthetic practice, but cryotherapy is the preference for dermatologists.
