Once the mole is deemed safe to remove, our surgeon will clean and prep the area and numb it with a local anesthetic injection. After the numbing agent takes effect, the surgeon will utilize the state-of-the-art technology to slowly and precisely remove the mole (s). Following the procedure, our team will bandage the area and send you home with the after care products and instructions. Your appointment will most likely last between 30 and 60 minutes.

Is mole removal safe?2021-01-24T05:11:13+00:00

Moles are usually non-cancerous and are therefore 100% safe to remove. We hire board-certified surgeons that have over 20 years of experience in the medical field and will examine and diagnose the mole before beginning any treatment. We always conduct a thorough examination and if the mole is suspected of being cancerous, our surgeons will refer you to a specialist.

We advise patients to stay out of the ocean and pool and avoid prolonged sun exposure for about one week. After the initial week, you are welcome to return to normal activities while the area continues to heal for about an additional four weeks. Depending on the size of the treated area and the depth of the mole removal, the spot may take up to three months to heal entirely.
