How does mole removal work?

At Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania, our board-certified dermatologists use state-of-the-art lasers and evidence-based procedures to remove many types of moles.


Laser mole removal

During laser mole removal, your doctor will use a device to deliver bursts of light energy to destroy local tissue associated with the mole.

Multiple laser therapy sessions may be necessary to lighten and fully remove a mole. Lasers are a good treatment option for beauty mark removal in hard-to-reach locations, like the ears, or for treating multiple moles simultaneously.

Mole excision

For larger moles, our board-certified dermatologists use mole excision or similar surgical procedures to ensure the entire mole is removed, especially when treating atypical moles that could be cancerous. Mole removal surgery involves using a scalpel or special surgical tools to remove the mole and a small margin of surrounding skin. After removing atypical moles that have grown deep into the skin, your doctor may close the incisions with stitches. Advanced suturing techniques allow incisions to heal cleanly with reduced visible scarring.


Which laser does Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania use for mole removal?

Our board-certified dermatologists use the PicoPlus laser, to remove small, flat moles for cosmetic purposes. This device uses dual wavelengths of light to shatter the pigment in moles, making the leftover particles easier to remove through the body’s natural lymphatic process.

Our dermatologists use topical and local anesthetics to ensure a comfortable treatment. The treatment can take about 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the size and color of the mole.

With extensive experience treating moles and other pigmentation concerns, Dr. Wang participated in a research study exploring the use of lasers for melasma.

Which types of moles does Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania remove?

Our board-certified dermatologists provide mole treatment for both normal and atypical moles.

  • Common moles develop when pigment cells grow in clusters and are typically round, flat, or slightly raised. Common moles can be evenly colored black, tan, or brown spots on the skin and stay relatively the same shape and size over time.
  • Atypical moles are generally larger than common moles and have irregular and indistinct borders. They can appear tan to dark brown with a pink background. Atypical moles may be more likely to evolve into skin cancer than common moles.

Whether you were born with an ordinary mole or a mole that developed over time, you can discuss your concerns with your dermatologist if you do not like its appearance. If you have a family history of melanoma, proper monitoring is essential. Your doctor may suggest mole surgery to run tests and determine if the mole is malignant or benign.

How long is the recovery after mole removal?

After mole removal, the skin may be tender, but most patients usually return to their normal activities immediately or the next day. Mild redness, swelling, and bruising are common, but these side effects are temporary and should not keep you from resuming your daily routine.

When will I see results?

Laser treatments may require multiple sessions, but results should be fully evident once your treatment plan is complete and the treatment areas have fully healed. Mole removal from the face or body usually provides permanent results.
