MOLE REMOVAL TORONTO

SAY GOODBYE TO IRRITATING MOLES WITH QUICK AND EFFECTIVE LASER MOLE REMOVAL TREATMENT.

Moles, medically referred to as “nevus” or “nevi”, are small areas of dark spots that appear on the surface of the skin. They can vary in shape, colour, size, and texture. Although most moles are non-cancerous, increased number of moles can heighten chances of developing a mole cancer, called melanoma. The choice of mole removal has become popular for both health and cosmetic reasons.

 

WHAT CAUSES MOLES

Moles are caused by the concentration of skin melanocyte cells. The cluster of melanocyte cells is what makes moles apparent to the eyes. These cells are the pigment-producing cells that give skin its natural colour. While some moles are caused genetically, others are a result of excessive sun exposure and sunburns, or hormonal change. Sun exposure can also further darken existing moles and increase the number of moles.

BENEFITS OF MOLE REMOVAL

  • Eliminates the health risks by removing pre-cancerous moles
  • Enhances the look of your skin by achieving smooth and clear skin
  • Reduces skin irritation that may occur when the nevi rubs against clothing or jewelry
  • Removes bulging moles that get in the way of shaving

TYPES OF MOLES

  • Congenital Moles: Congenital nevi are those that are found in infants and are present on the skin at birth. 1% of newborn babies are likely to be born with a congenital nevus.
  • Acquired Moles: These are moles that develop after birth, often during the first two decades of one’s life. People with these types of moles are often times at greater risk for melanoma.
  • Atypical Moles: Also referred as “dysplastic nevi," these moles have the highest risk of becoming cancerous. These moles are generally larger in size and have indistinct shapes. It is recommended that people with atypical moles always use a sunscreen with a high SPF rating to protect the skin against Ultra-Violet rays. Given the precancerous nature of these moles, people with atypical moles should frequently advise their dermatologists to consider mole removal. Also advise your medical professionals if you find there has been change in colour, size, or texture or the mole.

MOLE REMOVAL TREATMENTS

Mole removal techniques very depending on the type, size, and location of the mole. There are generally four common types of mole removal procedures.

  • Excision and shaving methods – there are various surgical mole removal procedures available. The choice of techniques will depend on the type of mole and its elevation from the skin’s surface.
  • Cryotherapy – this involves freezing the mole with the use of liquid nitrogen to destroy the concentrated melanocyte cells.
  • Electrocautery (electrocaterization) – A safe procedure that uses light electro currents to remove undesirable mole tissues by targeting the top layer of the skin, leaving surrounding skin untouched. Typically, this procedure has been the most preferred method due to the low risk of scarring.
  • Lasers have become the number one choice for mole removal, offering the most convenient, safest, and effective procedure. Lasers can target the mole’s pigment cells directly without damaging or scarring surrounding skin cells.
