Treatment

Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Acrochordons need to be differentiated from neurofibromas, as well as other benign skin lesions. Treatment options include the following:

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy involves freezing the acrochordon so it falls off.

Surgical Excision

Acrochordons can be removed surgically with scissors.

Electrosurgery

In electrosurgery, an electric current is applied to the acrochordon to cut it off.

Ligation

With ligation, a suture is tied around the neck of the acrochordon to remove it.
