Having moles on the skin is common, but if they have changed, if new ones appear or you think they look different for any reason you may want to get them checked out, diagnosed and treated by a specialist.
Mole removal is a popular procedure for a number of reasons, whether this is for cosmetic purposes, health problems or even to reduce any discomfort from mole rubbing on clothes.
If you have a lot of moles you may need to have a regular check using our mole mapping service.
Moles are growths on the skin that are usually brown or black, they can appear anywhere on the skin, alone or in groups. Most moles appear in early childhood and during the first 25 years of a person’s life, in addition, it’s normal to have between 10-40 moles by adulthood.
Most skin moles are easily ignored and don’t present any health problems, but for some, people they cause them to feel self-conscious or can even cause discomfort, particularly if they’re in an area rubbed by clothing. Other moles may present worrying symptoms.
Moles occur when cells in the skin grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin, these cells are called melanocytes and they make the pigment that gives skin its natural colour, as a result, you may find your moles darken after exposure to the sun, during the teen years and during pregnancy.
When it comes to removing a mole, it’s important for your dermatologist to look closely at the mole to see if it presents any symptoms, in addition, any abnormal moles should be removed surgically for histology.
Some moles can also be removed for cosmetic reasons.
While this is a simple and safe treatment, not all moles should be shaved or be treated with a laser.
If the mole is suspicious looking, it’s best to have it checked by your dermatologist who will use a dermatoscope to examine the moles and discuss with you the best treatment options for them.
Moles can be shaved, lasered or cut out (excised), however not all techniques are suitable for all moles and as a result, a consultation is very important to discuss the best technique for your mole removal.
Yes, no matter which treatment you have, you will be in the safest of hands at Everything Skin Clinic™. During your initial consultation, your practitioner will explain any possible side effects and how to avoid them.
