When Should Someone Consider Mole Removal?
Generally, moles are only removed for cosmetic reasons. They could make the affected individual self-conscious about their appearance, or they could even form in areas that become easily irritated when they come into contact with materials like clothing. Essentially, you may want to consider mole removal if your mole is affecting your life in any negative way.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Mole Removal?
Almost anyone who is in generally good health makes a good candidate for professional mole removal with our specialist. This procedure is an especially good option if you believe your mole is cancerous or may become cancerous. While you should always have a suspicious mole examined by a trusted dermatologist, there are a few things you could check for at home. Any mole that is changing in border, symmetry, or size could be cause for concern and may need to be removed.
What to Expect with Mole Removal
We make the process quick and convenient for you. Moles can be removed by a variety of different methods, but it will typically include first applying a local anesthetic for your comfort. Once the area has been sufficiently numbed, our specialist will then remove the mole via methods such as shaving or excision. The exact method used will depend on factors such as the size and depth of the mole. During your consultation, we will walk you through the process in more detail and help you find out exactly what to expect.
