Mole Removal

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

What is it?

Moles can range in color from your natural skin shade to pink, brown, and black. Some moles are flat against your skin and others are raised. If you have a spot that has not been examined by a dermatologist, it is always a good idea to schedule a skin check.

Most moles are benign, but some patients elect to have them removed for cosmetic reasons or because the mole causes irritation. Moles should always be removed by a board-certified dermatology provider to ensure safety and a positive cosmetic outcome.

What to expect

Mole removals are simple outpatient procedures. Before removing your mole, we cleanse the area and numb your skin with a topical anesthetic or a small injection. There are two mole-removal methods: surgical excision (a scalpel is used to cut the mole from your skin) and shave excision (a single or double-bladed razor is used to shave the growth off the skin).

After the mole is removed, the area will be treated and covered appropriately. You'll receive comprehensive instructions for caring for the wound at home, which typically includes keeping it clean and covered. Healing from the mole removal procedure may take up to three weeks. After your appointment, you should be able to resume your regular daily activities.

To have a mole examined or to discuss mole removal, schedule an appointment at one of our locations in Batavia, Beavercreek, Bridgetown, Cincinnati, Dayton, Dent, Greenville, Hillsboro, Kettering, Mason, Montgomery, Oxford, Troy, West Chester or Wilmington, Ohio.

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