Sometimes if they grow bigger there are chances that they may get infected following a trivial trauma. So it is a better to remove them when skin lesion are small in size.
Skin tags are best removed by radiofrequency.
In this procedure a topical or local anesthesia is given at the site and with the help of a radio frequency probe, the tags are removed. The whole procedure is minimally painful.
A wart is a viral infection caused by human papilloma virus. These are rough, sometimes dark coloured outgrowths on the skin. Warts may be of different types i.e. common warts, flat warts, genital warts.

Treatment will help in removal of wart, at the same time it reduces the spread of virus and further appearance of warts at different sites..
