Mole Removal

A removal procedure where a mole is shaved or cut to remove it from the skin.

What is it?

The color of moles can differ from your natural skin color, varying from pink, brown to black. They frequently emerge during adolescence and teenage years and can be either flat or protruding from the skin surface. It's typical for 10 to 40 moles to present on your skin by adulthood. Some develop slowly, and some may gradually fade or vanish over time.

Although most moles are benign, if you have any spots that worry you, schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified dermatologist in Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton, and Strongsville, Ohio, for a comprehensive check-up.

We may even recommend mole removal if needed.  Mole removal is a process that involves one of our experienced dermatologists shaving or excising the mole from your skin. Some individuals may desire mole removal for aesthetic purposes, such as facial moles. Our team can assist with this, too.

What to expect

These are quick outpatient treatments. You should be capable of driving home post-appointment and resuming your regular daily routine. When considering mole extraction, it's crucial to steer clear of DIY methods, as they can potentially inflict harm. Always opt for the guidance of a board-certified dermatologist from our dermatology clinic.

Initially, we will sanitize the area requiring removal, then numb it using either a topical or injectable anesthetic. There are two mole-removal techniques: surgical excision (utilizing a scalpel to detach the mole from your skin) and shave excision (using a single or double-edged razor to shave the growth off the skin). Our board-certified dermatologists will discuss with you the most suitable approach.

Following the mole's removal, the area will be treated suitably and covered. You'll be given precise instructions for at-home wound care, which usually entails keeping it clean and protected. The healing process from mole removal may last up to three weeks.

If you wish to consult with one of our Dermatology Partners board-certified dermatologists, give us a call, and we'll arrange an appointment.

We would love to get started on a solution that perfectly fits your needs.
