Mississauga dermatology practice provides multiple mole removal techniques

Mole Removal Techniques of DermCare in Mississauga Area

Your personal physiology, hereditary background, and medical status are unique. Personalized dermatology care is very important for the safest treatment and a favorable outcome. You’ll find that level of attention at DermCare in Mississauga, from tailored cosmetic procedures to multiple mole removal techniques.

When should moles be removed?

A mole is a cluster of melanocytes – cells that produce pigments – near the surface of skin. Moles may be flat or raised. They are usually brownish in color, but sometimes match skin tone. Most moles are benign, posing no health threat.

However, a mole can be a precursor to skin cancer. If you have a mole that looks different from others in the same area, book a visit to DermCare, right away. It should be examined under magnification, and possibly removed and biopsied.

Check your skin from head to toe monthly, watching for a mole that:

  • Appears after you are aged 25
  • Is larger than the diameter of a pencil eraser
  • Has multiple colors
  • Has a ragged border or unusual shape
  • Changes in any way – shape, size, height, color, texture, or sensation
  • Begins to itch, feel tender, ooze, or bleed

Moles can also mimic other skin conditions, so it is a good idea to schedule an annual screening to have them professionally monitored. In addition, moles that appear on visible areas of the body can be an aesthetic concern. They may rub on clothing, jewelry, or eyeglasses, causing discomfort.

What mole removal techniques are available in Mississauga?

Dr. Faisal Al-Mohammedi is certified in dermatology and dermatopathology (microscopic diagnosis of skin conditions). He and the team at DermCare provide a variety of mole removal options, choosing the least invasive method that will eliminate the lesion with minimal risk of scarring.

That could involve shaving the mole with a scalpel to or slightly below skin level. Larger moles may require surgical excision and possibly sutures to close the site. In some cases, moles can be removed by freezing with a drop of liquid nitrogen, a technique called cryotherapy. For cosmetic removal with no risk of cancer, laser therapy may be recommended.

If you are concerned about a mole, please call (905) 625-5600 to learn more about effective treatment options available at DermCare.

I was having adult acne problem since 4 ,5 years and non of the doc in canada or back home could figure out the root cause and it was very much depressing. I thought of giving a last chance to any derma clinic and on behalf of the reviews regarding doc Mohammad Faisal i choose dermacare clinic . He gave me an oral medication and advised me to visit after 3 month. From the very first application of the medication i could see the fantasic change. And its just 3 weeks of my visit my skin has improved like anything. I am so glad and so much thank ful to Doc Faisal. And i would recommend this clinic to all those who are facing adult acne.
