Skin Mole Removal

Skin mole removal at our Atlanta, GA dermatology practice is something we do every day. A true mole, or nevus, must be removed surgically to eliminate recurrence. We have two primary methods for your expert mole removal. Shaving your mole requires no stitches and leaves a round scar, whereas an excision involves a simple stitch with a line scar. Our professionals at Olansky Dermatology & Aesthetics will check every mole for its condition before offering treatment. We promise to offer you the best patient care in the comfortable environment you deserve when you choose Olansky Dermatology & Aesthetics for your skin mole evaluation and removal.

What Causes Skin Moles?

Moles are caused when cells in the skin, called melanocytes, grow in clusters or clumps with tissue surrounding them. Clusters of these pigmented cells commonly appear as small, dark brown spots. Moles can develop on any part of your body. They can vary in size and can be flat or raised, smoothed, or wrinkled. Most people have between 10 and 40 moles. However, new moles can develop at middle age while some moles may actually disappear as you get older. Most moles are harmless but a professional evaluation is necessary to determine any moles that have pre-cancerous signs.
