What Is Mole Removal?
Mole removal is a process to remove dark spots or irregularities from the skin. Moles are skin features that can be present since birth, or they can develop over time. They occur on various places of the body, and they can differ in shape, size, and color.
People choose to pursue mole removal treatments for both cosmetic and preventative medical reasons. Our office in West Chester, Ohio, performs both surgical and laser treatments to surgically remove moles for cosmetic reasons.
Laser mole removal is good for small black or brown moles that do not protrude above the skin. Fully removing the mole typically requires one to three laser treatments.
We offer three types of surgical mole removal, which are:
- Shave Excision – good for moles raised above the skin; involves a member of our team applying a local anesthetic and shaving the surface of the mole so it’s flush with the skin
- Punch Biopsy – good for small moles; involves a member of our team using a special device to “punch out” a cylinder-shaped piece of skin
- Excisional Surgery – good for flat or malignant moles; involves a member of our team surgically cutting out the mole
The procedure chosen will depend on you, your goals, and your body.
