What Are Moles?

skin and laser clinic Vancouver
Moles are very common growths on your skin. Contrary to popular opinion, moles can appear on your skin regardless of age. Some people are even born with them although this is not common. Typically, moles are brown or flesh-colored. The experts at our clinic will carefully assess your skin and offer a mole removal therapy depending on the size of the mole and where it is located.
Moles are not supposed to have asymmetrical shapes, irregular borders, or dark colors. They are also not big and are typically smaller than 6mm. If the moles on your skin display any of the aforementioned characteristics, you could be dealing with cancerous moles. We highly recommend a visit to our Burnaby clinic so your skin can be thoroughly examined by a physician.
DO NOT under any circumstances try to have your moles removed in a salon or spa. This is a sensitive procedure that requires a correct diagnosis. Only a qualified physician should perform any mole removal on your skin to reduce the risk of scarring. That is what we do at our Burnaby clinic.

What Sets Us Apart

Will Mole Removal Hurt?

Well, that largely depends on the size of the mole.
If the mole is large, then it is likely you will feel a stinging sensation on your skin. However, if a doctor thinks that removal is going to be hurtful, then we are going to administer an injectable, local anesthetic. This way, the procedure will be painless. Our experts will offer you aftercare routines after the mole removal procedure.

Disclaimer: mole removal procedures can vary from one patient to another. Please contact us today and book a consultation with one of our skin specialists. We will be happy to assess your skin and advice accordingly.
