Mole Removal

A normal mole is usually an evenly colored brown, tan, or black spot on the skin. It can be either flat or raised. Most moles are harmless accumulation of melanin in an area of skin. But it’s important to recognize changes in a mole, such as in its size, shape, color, or texture, that can suggest a cancerous mole. Removing a mole can prevent the mole from becoming cancerous. 

 

How to remove a mole?

At Fusionmed Cosmetic (FMCC) the removal of a mole is done using electrolysis. We will apply numbing cream on the skin surface. Since the area is numbed, and the process is quite quick, you will feel tingling near the area but the process is painless.

Fusionmed Cosmetic also offers laser mole removal. The primary benefit of laser mole removal is that it is noninvasive. Because there is no cutting or burning of the skin, the risk of infection is significantly reduced. Lasers are also able to reach areas of the body such as the face or nose that may be difficult to treat using other methods.
