I’ve Been Dying to Get Rid of this Mole: What’s Involved?

mole removal

Do you have an unwanted mole? Then you’ll be glad to know the removal process is easier than you might think. A mole doesn’t have to be a health concern to have it removed. Many patients opt for mole removal due to personal and/or cosmetic reasons. Come into Abadir Associates and discuss your options. We can turn your mole into a memory.

What Is a Mole?

Moles … odds are, you’ve got them, but do you really understand what those dark patches of skin are? A mole is a very common growth on the skin. They are usually brown or black and often appear during childhood. They occur when a type of cell known as a melanocyte grows in a cluster instead of being spread evenly throughout the skin. Thankfully, most moles are benign.  Even though they might not be medically concerning, many of our patients have moles that are not cosmetically pleasing or are physically uncomfortable. We can help you remove these moles.

You’ve undoubtedly heard that moles and skin cancer are related. Moles are made up of melanocytes, and melanoma is a type of cancer that originates in the melanocytes. Melanoma can occur anywhere, but it often begins in a mole. This is one reason why we encourage regular skin cancer screenings. Melanoma is highly treatable if it is caught early.

What Are My Options for Mole Removal?

If you have a mole that you would like removed, come in and discuss your options. We offer several different types of mole removal and can help you choose the right option for your mole and its location. If a mole is easily visible, we can offer treatment solutions that minimize or eliminate scarring.

  • Liquid Nitrogen- Liquid nitrogen can shrink the pigment cells in the mole for a smaller, lighter appearance.
  • Light Electrosurgery- For raised moles, light electrosurgery can flatten the mole and remove cells.
  • Shave Excision- A shave excision uses a surgical blade to shave off a mole or moles.
  • Laser- Laser energy can lighten the color of a mole.
  • Acid Peels- Acid peels can lighten moles. We can use a strong or light acidic solution, depending on your specific skin concerns and needs.

Come in for a consultation and we’ll help you choose the best removal option for your moles.

I’m Worried About Changes in a Mole. What Should I Do?

Most moles are benign but, if you have concerns about a mole, you need to get it evaluated by a licensed dermatologist. If you have a mole that is irregular, dark, changing, or unlike your other moles, come in and get it examined. We can help you determine if a mole is potentially dangerous and needs removal.
