Cosmetic mole removal services available for Fremont area patients
Cosmetic mole (nevi) removal is often requested by patients in the Fremont area who have them on their face or other noticeable area of the body. Often, patients are embarrassed by them and want them removed for cosmetic purposes. In a few situations, moles may be a sign of skin cancer and should be removed for medical reasons. Regardless, mole removal procedures are readily available at the Center for Dermatology Cosmetic and Laser Surgery.
Why should you have a mole removed?
Most patients seeking mole removal are doing so for cosmetic reasons. The mole may be positioned somewhere on their face or body where it makes them feel self-conscious. Some moles may also rub against areas of the skin and result in discomfort. At this point, removing the mole is beneficial. This may be a mole that is in the folds of the arms or even along the bra line. Irritation can make patients uncomfortable, so removal of the mole may be necessary.
Process of mole removal
The first step in deciding if a mole should be removed is a consultation appointment with Drs. Sunil Dhawan, Shurong Chang, and Ms. Amanda Lapointe.
