So you are probably wondering how to get rid of skin tags? Well there are a number of ways to get rid of them. You could have your doctor cut off your skin tag or your doctor could freeze it off. Also with this method, called ligation, your doctor will apply a small band to the base of the tag. This will cut off the blood supply to the upper portion of the tag and cause it to die and fall off your skin. The process can take up to a few days and, depending on the size and location of the tag, may be a bit more painful.
