What are moles and how do they form?

Moles appear on men and women. They are a fairly common type of skin lesion that look like small, dark brown spots on the skin. Although they are usually small, moles can vary in shape and size. 

Moles appear as a result of clusters of pigment-forming cells called melanocytes. Most people will see moles form on their skin during childhood or adolescence. These moles can fade or change in appearance over time. 

You can develop moles on most areas of the body including your scalp, armpits, back and between your fingers and toes. 

 

Are moles harmful?

A majority of moles are completely harmless and rarely do they turn into skin cancer. It is important to monitor any changes in the shape, size or colour of your moles and other skin growths.

If you notice abnormalities, you should always consult with a doctor. This can be important in the early detection of any skin cancer. Mole mapping is a useful tool for tracking the changes in moles over a period of time and can be useful in detecting cancerous growths.

Is mole removal the same as skin tag removal?

At One Clinic, your consultation and treatment will be with one of our team of doctors. This ensures that your mole removal is performed with care and precision to prevent infection and make sure you have minimal scarring. 

We also send any skin growths we remove off for testing. This will help us determine whether there are any abnormal cells that may need further treatment. 

 

Treatments for skin tag, mole removal and warts

 

Skin tag removal and warts

Skin tag removal treatment tends to use cold liquid nitrogen gas to freeze the skin tag and remove it safely. This is also an effective treatment for wart removal.

Treatment may also include minor surgery, where your doctor will use a local anaesthetic to numb the skin tag and remove it with sharp surgical scissors. This ensures your skin tag removal is safe and quick. 

 

Mole removal Leicester

Mole removal is a relatively straightforward procedure that may include one of the following:

 

Shave excision surgery

This type of minor surgery is for moles that protrude or raise from the skin. It involves a small injection of local anaesthetic to help numb the area before we use a surgical scalpel to remove the mole without the need for stitches. 

The procedure only takes a few minutes. You can expect the wound to heal in the next 10 days. You will have pink or redness in the area for a few weeks which will start to fade leaving a very small scar behind. 

 

Punch excision for mole removal 

This is an effective treatment for moles, birthmarks and skin growths. It uses a tiny round tool to puncture or punch out deeper skin lesions under local anaesthesia.

With punch excision you will need some stitches to help the area heal. The stitches come out after 1-2 weeks and any signs of scars will fade after a few months. You can help scars fade by taking care of your skin and limiting any sun exposure to the area. 

 

Laser removal 

Laser mole removal is usually for smaller and flatter moles that you may want to remove for cosmetic reasons. It can leave a neater result than surgical removal, but there is a small risk that the mole can come back after treatment. 

The laser works by targeting the darker pigment in the skin to get rid of it. If you have a larger or deep mole, we advise you to have surgical removal.
