A mole treatment is performed to remove moles on the skin. A mole is a black or brown growth on the body that occurs when cells in the skin cluster together. Different types of moles include skin tags, flat and raised moles. Moles can be removed for medical or cosmetic reasons. At Bakersfield MedSpa, we offer the leading mole removal treatment for our patients. Our highly-skilled specialists utilize the latest technology and techniques to perform all body treatments.
Patients who wish to undergo mole removal may want to remove a mole for a medical or cosmetic purpose. Candidates must be in good health to undergo this procedure. Patients will meet with the specialist for a one-on-one consultation appointment. The specialist will perform a thorough skin analysis to assess the current state of the patient's moles.
The specialist will carefully evaluate the size, color, and shape of the mole. The patient can discuss any questions, concerns, and goals for this treatment with the specialist during this appointment. A personalized treatment plan will then be created for the patient based on their goals and the specialist’s expertise.
Mole removals are performed as an outpatient procedure at Bakersfield MedSpa. The specialist will administer a local anesthetic to prepare the patient for the procedure. Moles can be removed through a surgical excision or shave.
A surgical shave is performed to remove moles that are above the skin. During a surgical shave, the specialist will remove the mole with a surgical blade. Stitches are not required for this procedure.
A surgical excision is utilized to remove moles that extend deep into the skin. This procedure requires the specialist to remove the mole with a special tool. This procedure requires stitches following the removal. Stitches will be removed one to two weeks after the mole removal treatment.
Surgical shaves and excisions require minimal downtime. The skin should be kept clean and dry to help heal the area of concern. Each patient's recovery process will vary based on the procedure performed. The specialist will spend time explaining the recovery process with each patient.
