Should I Look for A Skin Mole Removal Near Me?

Why Mole Removal is Necessary

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, most people in America have between 10 to 40 moles around their body. Though most moles are harmless, you may decide to undergo a mole removal procedure if the mole is a sign of skin cancer or you don’t like how it affects your appearance. There are various mole removal procedures available such as laser mole removal or surgical excision to remove high risk cancerous cells, skin tags, benign lesion, or just to remove moles over the treatment site.

Club Aesthetics is one of the premier places for skin treatments in Gilbert, Az. We have a wide variety of cosmetic and beauty services to meet your needs.

What are The Signs of Cancerous Moles?

Before we discuss the appearance of cancerous moles, the first piece of advice we would like to share is that you need to see a dermatologist for an annual skin cancer screening. More frequent screening is recommended for people with a strong family history of skin cancer. However, if you see atypical moles or suspicious moles described by the signs below, then you need to schedule a checkup with your dermatologist:

  • Are the moles asymmetrical?

  • Do the moles have non-uniform colors?

  • Do the moles have border irregularity?

  • Are the moles changing in size or evolving in shape or color?

  • Is the diameter of the mole more prominent than a pencil eraser?

If your moles fail one of these five checks (the ABCDEs of mole checks), you need to be evaluated more closely for skin cancer.

Mole Removal Procedures

Mole removals are typically done during an office visit. The complete mole removal procedure may take several visits. You may need to consult with your dermatologist for the best mole removal procedure. Many dermatologists can recommend the best course of action even on the first visit. These are the four main mole removal procedures:

  • Shave Excision: In this mole removal procedure, the mole is shaved off by using a surgical blade from the surface of the normal skin. Shave excision is a standard mole removal procedure for non-cancerous moles.

 

  • Excisional Surgery: This mole removal procedure goes deeper than shave excision. The entire mole is removed, and the skin is stitched right after. Excisional surgery is a typical mole removal procedure for cancerous moles.

 

  • Freezing: Like shave excision, this mole removal procedure is typical for cosmetic reasons. These involve using a small amount of liquid nitrogen for mole removal.

 

  • Burning: This mole removal procedure is also used for cosmetic reasons. This mole removal procedure involves an electrical current to burn the upper layers. This mole removal procedure takes several sessions to complete.

Warning: Don't Do Remove a Mole at Home!

Having a mole removed by a dermatologist is still advisable. Though home removal methods may sound harmless, these may cause more skin problems as these can be very dangerous, especially when done on cosmetically sensitive areas. Mole removal creams available online that are not cleared by any doctor can have side effects. In most cases, thick scars may form over the mole area. Deeper excision done by yourself could cause infection. Worse of all, you won’t know if a mole is cancerous or a tell-tale sign of melanoma. The more moles you remove without a dermatologist’s approval, the more skin problems or risks of infection will result.

A vast majority of treatment options are affordable and non-invasive and may vary depending on how many moles you have or if you have a family history of skin cancer. The best way is to set an appointment with a dermatologist before too late.

Takeaways: Exercise Caution on Mole Removals

Moles are more than skin-deep, literally. Moles may be a slight annoyance or cause a little discomfort but could also be a tell-tale sign of something more serious. The best recourse is to consult a dermatologist for everything concerning your moles.

Hi everyone! My name is Tami Hudlin – I am the brains behind Club Aesthetics AZ. I have spent the last 27 years running my husband’s and my business- as much as I love him, I did not want to work with him anymore, so I decided to embark on this fulfilling journey with Maddie and my amazing daughter Cassidi and THAT’S THE DAMN TRUTH! Running this business where I have 24/7 access to Botox and filler is a pretty great upside to my decision as well.
