There are times when a mole on your face or other highly visible part of the body can be described as a beauty mark. On the other hand, there are some moles that are unappealing or even inconvenient. Fortunately, Cascade Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa’s cosmetic surgeons can often remove an unwanted mole quickly and easily, with minimal scarring.
Most mole removals can be performed on an outpatient basis and only call for the use of local anesthetic.
Small moles can sometimes be shaved away to be smooth with the surrounding skin before they are cauterized. If a small mole extends deeply into the skin your surgeon might use a special laser to penetrate the deeper layers of the dermis and eradicate any mole cells within.
More modest sized moles that also penetrate deep into the skin, might need to be excised and removed. Then the surrounding skin is pulled in to tighten the area. Once everything has healed there should be little to no visible scarring.
While the skin in the area is healing, you will likely need to apply a topical antibiotic cream, to prevent infection. Your surgeon will discuss any other after care considerations with you after the procedure.
If you have an unappealing mole on your face or other part of your body, that you would like removed, you should contact Cascade Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa’s offices in Utah County, Utah at 801-762-8989 to set up a consultation.
