Everybody has moles. Most moles appear in early childhood. By adulthood many can have up to 40 moles on their body.
The exposure to the sun exposure can increase the number of moles. Moles can be tan, brown, black, reddish brown, or skin coloured. They can be flat or raised.
You should remove moles for cosmetic reasons as well as for medical reasons. Consult a dermatologist when a mole starts showing following changes:
If the moles show any of these signs then the moles require surgical excision under local anaesthesia. We send the excised mole to the pathology laboratory for histopathology. It will require a week to heal the excised area.
At derma-care we remove moles with a painless 1064 Q-switch laser (Pico). We selectively target the moles with a stream of laser pulses. The destroyed mole appears whitish and it lifts in its place for tissue regeneration. In 10 days, a complete reformation takes place and the mole is completely removed.
