Nearly everyone has at least a handful of moles or skin tags on their body. While perfectly normal, some moles are unsightly and some may cause discomfort.
While mole removal is a routine procedure that may only take a few minutes, it is important that it is conducted by an expert both to minimize scarring and to determine if the mole should be sent for testing for skin cancer.
Elevare MD offers mole removal for all types of moles and skin tags, including:
- Common mole – acquired throughout life; more frequent in people with light skin.
- Atypical mole – usually slightly larger than a pencil eraser, and may raise the risk of melanoma.
- Congenital mole – hereditary and can vary greatly in size and location.
- Spitz nevus – looks like melanoma because it is raised and can have different coloring.
