Most moles are non-cancerous and 100% safe to remove. Our surgeons have 20+ years in the medical field and will diagnose the mole before beginning any treatment. In the rare case that the surgeon does suspect the mole to be cancerous, we will not remove the mole and instead refer you to a specialist for additional testing.
With our combined newest technology and highly skilled board-certified surgeons, the appearance of scarring is unnoticeable and non-existent in most cases. We provide every patient with medical grade skincare to aid in successful, scar-free healing.
After determining the mole is safe to remove, our surgeon will begin by cleaning and numbing the area with a small injection. The surgeon will then use a state-of-the-art machine to slowly and precisely remove the mole. The area will be bandaged up and our medical team will send you home with recovery skincare and simple after-care instructions. Your appointment will last between 30 and 60 minutes.
