Mole Removal Options
Whether you were born with a mole or a birthmark that you dislike, or have developed skin tags or suspicious moles, we can address your concerns with various treatment options.
- Surgical excision – this is one of the most common ways to remove a mole that has been previously biopsied and is proven to be atypical or malignant.
- Shave removal – requires no sutures and is quick. Best for cosmetic mole removals and for lesions that have a component raised above the skin surface.
- Punch biopsy – uses a punch device that resembles a miniature apple-core appliance. A full thickness of skin is removed and sutures are placed.
- Snip excision – curved scissors are used to safely and gently removed skin tags (removal is considered cosmetic by all insurance companies).
