We complete safe, effective cosmetic mole removal using surgical excision. Also known as cutting, excision involves removing the mole using a scalpel or special surgical scissors. Removing the mole isn't painful, since a local anesthetic is administered before the procedure begins. Your dermatologist will let you know what to expect and how to prepare for this treatment. Feel free to ask us any questions you have about cosmetic mole removal at your next appointment or consultation.
