How To Remove Moles on the body?
Moles are dark spots on the skin that appear in various shapes, colors and sizes. You can find moles basically anywhere on your body, and they can be a nuisance. Some moles start out small and grow larger over time. If you have a mole that has grown troublesome and want to remove that mole, consider following these steps and mole removal procedures.
Here’s our advice on how to remove moles.
Before removal, do the following:
- Check your skin. Take a look at your skin regularly and monitor any changes. This is important so that you can quickly spot cancerous moles. If your moles change in appearance, head straight to step two and see your doctor. When you notice new moles, be sure to have your doctor check them out as well. The doctor can differentiate between normal aging spots and new, potentially cancerous moles. If you have a multitude of moles or sun damage, consider having a full skin scan at your dermatologist’s office.
- Check with your doctor. Don’t remove a mole until you’ve had it looked at. Moles can be harmless, but sometimes they are signs of possible melanoma. Have any moles looked at before you do anything.
- Consider letting your doctor handle mole removal. A doctor can remove a mole by shaving it from your skin or with laser treatments. Of course if you’re looking for natural mole removal, this probably isn’t the way to go. Also, these treatments often leave scars, so if you opt for this mole treatment, make sure you can live with the scar that results.
