Skin Tags and Calluses

Skin tags and calluses are the most common type of skin lesions, especially among children and teenagers.

Calluses
These lesions are caused by the papilloma virus, which spreads as it comes into human contact. The number of available treatments testifies to the lack of universal effectiveness each treatment offers. The only proven universal treatment is a CO2 laser. Almost all CO2 laser treatments require just single treatment and evaporate the callus with a laser.

Skin Tags
Skin tags, also called ‘acrochordons’ are small benign tumors, generally appearing in the armpit, eyelids and groin area. They do not pose any threats to one’s health, but can cause aesthetic issues. They can be removed by simple laser treatment, performed under local anesthesia.
