The average person will accumulate 10 - 40 new moles throughout their lifetime. With those stats, chances are high that you will develop a mole that you may not like. In fact, surveys shows that 9 out of 10 people have a mole that they want to get rid of.
Why Are We Prone to Developing New Moles?
A mole forms when skin cells grow in clusters. Moles can be flat, raised, round, oval, pink, red, brown, or flesh colored. And, it is not uncommon for moles to have dark, coarse hair growing through them. While moles can result from sun damage, there are often other factors such as genetic propensity that make it difficult to completely prevent mole development.
Moles and Skin Lesions Can Be Removed in as Little as 5 Minutes!
Moles are removed for several reasons including unflattering appearance, concern for skin cancer, and improvement in skin texture and tone. A mole removal is a quick, in-office procedure that utilizes a simple numbing injection. Depending on the mole, various techniques may be used.
A surface level mole can be shaved off, while a deep-rooted mole can be excised and sealed with just a couple stitches. Regardless of technique, the skin will heal over the course of the next few weeks allowing you to radiate with confidence.
It is important to seek a highly educated and experienced professional, especially when removing moles from facial skin.
