What are moles?

Moles occur when the cells in the skin that give it its pigment, called melanocytes, grow in clusters.  These cells normally grow throughout the skin, but when too many grow in the same place a mole occurs.  Most moles appear before the age of 25, but some may appear much later.  Moles can remain static or change over time.  Although most are not dangerous, some can be malignant and lead to melanoma.  Any mole that oozes or becomes painful or sensitive should be checked out by a dermatologist.  Moles that suddenly appear after the age of 25 or begin to change or grow should also be evaluated.

Mole Removal Options

Treating moles is not difficult.  If a mole is embarrassing, or becomes irritated under your clothing, you may contact Pretty Faces Atlanta and ask about our mole removal procedures. There are a number of ways by which moles can be removed. Moles can be frozen with a chemical, after which they dry up and fall off.  Other moles can be simply cut off of the skin.  Often, doctors will remove entire moles that seem suspicious and test the tissue for cancer.  If any malignancy is found, they may cut out a slightly larger area of skin and then suture the site closed.
