Mole Removal

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

What is it?

Moles can differ in hue from your natural skin color to pink, brown, and black. They frequently emerge during adolescence and teenage years and can be flat or elevated on the skin's surface. It's typical for 10 to 40 moles to surface on your skin by the time you reach adulthood. Some develop slowly, and some may even fade or vanish over time. While the majority of moles are benign, if you have any areas that worry you, visit our Bexley, Ohio dermatology clinic for a comprehensive examination. If required, we might even suggest mole removal.   

Mole extraction involves one of our skilled dermatologists in Bexley, OH, either shaving or cutting the mole to extract it from your skin. Some individuals choose mole removal for aesthetic reasons, particuilarly with facial moles. Our team can assist with this, too.

What to expect

These procedures are quick and done in our office. You should be able to drive yourself home post-procedure and resume your regular daily activities. When contemplating mole removal, it's important to steer clear of home remedies, as they can potentially cause damage. Always rely on the knowledge of a board-certified dermatologist.

To start, we'll cleanse the area that needs to be removed and then use either a topical or injectable numbing anesthetic. There are two mole-removal methods: surgical excision (a scalpel is used to cut the mole away from your skin) and shave excision (a razor is used to shave the growth off the skin). Our board-certified dermatologists at Bexley Dermatology will consult with you to determine the best approach.

After the mole is removed, we'll treat and cover the area. You'll be given precise instructions on how to take care of the wound at home, usually involving keeping it clean and covered. The healing process from the mole removal procedure can take up to three weeks.

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