Mole Removal

Mole removal is a common cosmetic procedure used to remove unwanted moles or moles that are causing discomfort or concern for skin cancer. There are several methods for removing moles, including:

  1. Surgical excision: This involves cutting out the mole and stitching the skin back together.

  2. Shave excision: In this method, the doctor uses a scalpel to shave the mole off, leaving the skin relatively flat.

  3. Laser removal: This involves using a laser to destroy the mole and cause it to fade over time.

  4. Cryotherapy: Cryotherapy involves freezing the mole with liquid nitrogen, causing it to fall off.

The method chosen for mole removal depends on the size, location, and type of the mole. Before undergoing any mole removal procedure, it's important to have the mole examined by a doctor to rule out skin cancer. The recovery period after mole removal can vary, but most people are able to return to normal activities within a few days.
