What is a mole?

Moles are a form of skin growth that is very natural. Clusters of pigmented cells allow them to appear as tiny, dark brown spots on the skin. Moles are most common in infancy and puberty. The average person has 10 to 40 moles, some of which may change or disappear over time.

The majority of moles are completely harmless. They only become cancerous in a limited number of cases. Skin cancer, especially malignant melanoma, can be detected by keeping an eye on moles and other pigmented patches.

Moles are formed when pigmented cells clusters together. Most moles developed are harmless and can be easily removed using Fractional Co2 lasers. Often times, moles can be confused with other skin bumps such as skin tag, warts & seborrheic keratosis.

The average individual will have 12 – 40 moles over their lifespan. It is important to let your doctor assess it before removal as some moles may become cancerous. The right assessment will ensure permanent removal with no complications.
