Skin moles treatment

what are your options for mole removal?

While usually moles are harmless and don’t require treatment, sometimes a mole may need to be removed if it poses a risk for skin cancer or for aesthetic reasons. In this post, we look at a few options for skin moles treatment, once your dermatologist has identified a dangerous mole or you have identified a mole you’d like to remove.

What does a normal mole look like?

Mole removal is typically done on an outpatient basis and is relatively painless. Moles can be removed by:
  • Cutting / Excision
  • With this type of skin moles treatment, a local anesthetic is applied to the mole, which is cut out along with a small area of the surrounding skin with a scalpel or surgical scissors. Some moles may have cells that have grown underneath the top layer of skin. Cutting these out may require a few stitches to close the skin, which can leave a small scar that will fade over time.
  • Shave removal
  • Some skin moles can be shaved down with a scalpel. The area gets numbed with a local anesthetic beforehand, and usually, only a small pink mark is left after the removal.
  • Freezing
  • Moles that are non-cancerous and haven’t grown to the deeper layers of skin can be frozen off using liquid nitrogen. This type of skin moles treatment may leave a small blister on the skin but is a relatively simple outpatient procedure.
