Mole Removal

Moles are a common type of growth on the skin. They often appear as small brown spots and are caused by clusters of pigmented cells. Moles can develop anywhere on your body, including your scalp, armpits and between your fingers and toes. Moles are usually removed if they are thought to be cancerous but they can also be removed for cosmetic or comfort reasons.

Mole removal is usually a minimally invasive procedure with little discomfort and a quick healing time. There are some mole removal care tips to consider so that you decrease your risk for developing a noticeable scar or an infection after the procedure.

Over the first week or two after mole removal, your skin will begin to form a scab. It’s essential that you continue to cover this area with a bandage and don’t pick at the scab. Let the scab fall off naturally. This will decrease your chances of visible scarring and infection.

Follow-up: You may need to return for a follow-up visit with Dr. Colbert to check the progress of your healing or to have stitches removed. It’s important to keep all follow-up appointments.
