Skin Tag, Mole, and Wart Removal in Orlando, FL

Skin Tag Mole and Wart Removal Orlando FLMost skin tags, moles, and warts are not a cause for concern; some even go away on their own. Caused by friction, skin tags are small flaps of tissue that often develop in skin folds and areas where the skin rubs together or against clothing. Warts are small, fleshy skin bumps caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). Moles are clusters of melanocytes, which are pigment-producing cells that give the skin its color.

Sometimes, harmless skin growths can be bothersome, particularly if they are large or develop in a sensitive area of the body. You should never try to remove a skin tag, mole, or wart yourself due to the risks of excessive bleeding, infection, and scarring. Instead, it’s best to have a skin lesion evaluated and removed by a medical professional. As a member of Optimum Direct Care, a direct primary care practice (DPC) in Orlando, FL, you can have your skin tags, moles, and warts removed safely and comfortably as part of your membership.

How Are Skin Tags, Moles, and Warts Removed?

At Optimum Direct Care, our board-certified family practice physician, Dr. Toni “Muzzi” Muzzonigro, can often perform a relatively simple in-office procedure to remove a small skin tag, mole, or wart using a local anesthetic with no stitches required. Depending on the type, size, and location of the skin lesion, Dr. Muzzi may remove it by:

  • Shaving or scraping it with a scalpel (excision)
  • Snipping it with surgical scissors
  • Freezing it off (cryotherapy)
  • Burning it off (cauterization)
  • Interrupting its blood supply (ligation)
  • Applying a chemical treatment

If appropriate, Dr. Muzzi will send a suspicious skin growth to an offsite lab for testing. For instance, a biopsy may be performed to determine whether cancer or another skin condition that requires further treatment is present.

Dr. Muzzi is always available to assist members of our DPC practice in Orlando, FL, with skin tag, mole, and wart removal. If you’d like more information about our services, contact Optimum Direct Care today.

“The switch to Dr. Muzzi took some getting used to. I am not accustomed to Doctors actually calling me back promptly nor spending quality time with me analyzing my complete medical make up. In this medical era of “get them in and get them out quickly”, her approach is professionally refreshing.”
