Is the best way to remove skin imperfections to freeze skin tags off? If you don’t have skin tags or don’t know what they are, you might have never thought about it. However, many people who do have them may want them removed for a variety of reasons. Skin tags are small pieces or flaps of skin on a stem that sticks out. They can get caught on things like clothing and jewelry. They can also form in sensitive areas such as the eyelids or even on the genitals.
