Mole removal is a simple process. A qualified professional can usually remove a mole in a short time while you’re in the office. Anesthetics are often used to numb the area to ensure your comfort. Keep in mind that you won’t be sedated during the removal process but that you won’t really feel any pain when the mole is being removed because of the medications that are given.
What are My Mole Removal Options?
The specifics of removing a mole will depend on the type of mole that it is as well as the size and shape. Its location on your body can also be a factor in how it’s removed and the care that is needed after removal. Here at Biotech Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, we offer three methods of mole removal. The first and most traditional is surgical removal, which is often recommended for larger moles and provides permanent removal. The second is laser removal, which is known to alter discolorations. The third, freezing, employs liquid nitrogen to kill the pigmented, raised cells that comprise moles.
Why are Moles Removed?
Moles are usually excised if your doctor suspects that they could be cancerous so that more of the tissue can be sent to a laboratory for further examination and testing. Your doctor will usually remove a small area around the mole as well as a small amount of skin to ensure that any cancer cells are removed during the procedure.
