Mole Removal

About This Project

WHAT IS MOLE?

Moles refer to certain types of benign (non-cancerous) tumors of the skin, composed of pigment-producing cells (melanocytes) that colonize the epidermis (upper layer of skin) and sometimes dermis (lower layer of skin). Certain skin cancers may look like moles and requires special removal techniques different from common moles. Some skin cancers may look like moles. Therefore it is important to have your moles checked by a doctor with training in dermatoscopy. Dermatoscopy can reveal telltale signs of skin cancers that are not readily visible to naked eyes. Skinlife specialized in the use of digital dermatoscope to examine your moles prior to removal.

HOW TO REMOVE MOLES

Moles (Benign Nevi) can be safely removed by minor surgery (cutting with specialized mole removal equipment and closing with fine suture) as well as by a highly sophisticated digital photo-plasma system that are safer and more precise than laser systems.

IMPORTANT FACTS

  • How long is the recovery time?
    After surgical mole removal, suture will be placed in the skin to secure the removal site. Suture will remain in the skin for about a week (face) and a bit longer elsewhere. After non-surgical mole removal (a.k.a. “laser mole removal”), small dressing sticker is placed over the removal site. The sticker typically stays on the skin for 72 hours or longer.
  • Will my moles come back?
    Surgical mole removal has the highest success rate and almost always results in complete and permanent removal of the mole. Other treatment options have varying degrees of success, depending on the type, size, and location of your mole.
