There are three surgical procedures for removing skin tags.
One of these methods consists on freezing skin tags using liquid Nitrogen at -196°C. The tissues of the skin tags can’t survive this low temperature and they fall off immediately.
The other way for removing skin tags consists on cauterizing (or burning) the skin tags using laser.
Finally, The third method consists on cutting off skin tags using a scalpel or scissors. Off course, it’s up to your doctor to determine which of these procedures is more appropriate to you.
It is important to note here that the cost of removing skin tags with surgery is not covered by most insurance plans and that’s why many people prefer to use alternative home removal methods.
