Neck Skin Tag Removal - Chevy Chase, MD

Topical numbing application was applied about 10 minutes before the procedure. The doctor used a laser to "zap" about 40 tags (20 on each side of my neck). Each zap was about as intense as a bee sting, so it's tolerable. My neck was spotted with tiny scabs at each zap point, but absolutely not pain lingered. I expect the scabs to drop off within the week, as advised.
Skin tags, unfortunately are in my genes, so I will probably have to repeat this procedure every year from this point forward.

Thank you for posting your progress so far, Dorison. Have the scabs dropped off as expected?

Yes, the scabs are long gone now, three weeks after the procedure. I have to admit, my neck itched a bit so I'm sure my light but consistent scratching helped to move the process along. Only minimal scars remain and I am confident that with my fade cream these will disappear soon.
