Orange County Mole Removal Specialist

There are various benefits to this procedure, including: 

• Removing protruding moles that get in the way of shaving.
• Reducing skin irritation that can occur when certain moles rub against clothing or jewelry.
• Achieving smoother, clearer skin.
• Enhancing appearance and improving self-esteem.
 – Most importantly, if a mole is suspected to be pre-cancerous early on, it can often be completely removed before it causes a serious health risk.
Who would best represent an Ideal Candidate for Mole Removal? 
Those people who can physically and emotionally benefit from having their mole removed would be considered a good candidate for the procedure. However, people must remember that there are limitations to what cosmetic surgery can do. It is meant for improvement, not perfection and is important to have realistic goals and expectations about mole removal

Mole removal procedure:
The lesion/mole is first prepped with isopropyl alcohol, injected with a small amount of lidocaine 2% (anesthetic), and then painlessly removed using a radio-surgery electrode*. During the procedure, the treated area is cauterized as the lesion is being removed. This means that the treated area is free of bleeding and therefore ready to be prepped with a triple antibiotic ointment and a band-aid immediately afterwards.

After the procedure, patients are asked to keep the treated area clean and free of contaminants until the wound has scabbed over. This post-procedure maintenance is done by simply cleaning the wound with mild soap and water, applying the triple antibiotic ointment (supplied by us), and a band-aid 1-2 times a day for 2 to 4 days. Typically patients see new skin after a week which is usually pink in color. The new skin then gradually starts to match the surrounding skin in days to weeks.
