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.

“My husband and I were in search of a new physician when my neighbor mentioned that we should meet Dr Toni Muzzinigro who was a “Direct Primary Care” physician. We were not familiar with the term and were very intrigued. We made an initial appointment with her and learned so many things that we didn’t think existed anymore. Her main focus is on the patient and not the insurance companies! When she doesn’t have to worry about the bureaucracy and red tape of insurance companies, she has so much more time to listen to the patient and come up with a truly great level of care. The patient comes first and foremost. Our initial appointment was so thorough. She wanted to know every aspect of our past records. I felt like she really cared about us and her main goal was to keep us as healthy as possible. During our annual appointments, Dr. Muzzi schedules enough time to go over every concern you may have. Her explanations of test results are very thorough, and she is very knowledgeable of up to date medical breakthroughs. There have been some times during the year that we needed a doctor’s advice quickly. She is available to us basically 24/7. You can get in touch with her via phone, text, or video conferencing. Many things can be handled in a quick and timely manner. However, if there is a need to see her personally, getting in to see her doesn’t take weeks. Usually, you can make an appointment the very next day. How comforting is it to know that your doctor is always available to you and truly cares about your wellbeing! That is worth its weight in gold! Her staff are an added bonus! They run the office efficiently and take care of any other needs we may have. Another great advantage is that Dr. Muzzi has a network of specialists, labs, and resources available to us and at a discounted rate and free generic prescriptions. Personally, we like the fact that someone can help us navigate the medical system and direct us in the right direction. I simply can’t say enough. Dr. Muzzi has become our doctor as well as a good friend. She will always have our best interest at heart and her main goal is to provide the highest level of care. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Muzzi and Optimum Direct Care.”
