Mole and Lesion Removal
Moles, also called nevi are any dark spot, growths or irregularity on the skin.. Moles can occur in single spot or in groups, they can be dark or light, raised or flat. Generally, moles can be categorized in different ways. But, congenital nevi and dysplastic nevi are among those types that can lead to high risk of melanoma skin cancer.
What causes moles?
Moles are basically caused by clusters of melanocytes—skin cells that produce melanin. Melanin is the chemical responsible for giving our skin color.
Moles can be present at birth, or appear over time as our skin is exposed to the sun.
How does Mole Removal work?
Laser light energy is delivered to the targeted area. The light energy is absorbed only by the pigment in the skin. The pigment is broken down and "carried away" by the body and absorbed during the healing process.
How many mole treatments are required?
This depends upon of the type of mole being treated. Most aging spots, sunspots and flat moles can be removed with a few treatments.
What happens after mole treatment?
Immediately after treatment, the area usually turns darker. This fades quickly and the mole falls off in 5-7 days.
The majority of patients will need about six treatments to achieve the desired percentage of permanent reduction. We set treatment appointments 4-6 weeks apart. Results are typically achieved in 6 treatments.
