Moles are caused when the skin’s special cells that produce melanin, the substance that gives skin its pigmentation or color, grow in clusters. These clusters cause a high concentration of melanin to build up in a localized spot. When this happens, a mole will begin to develop and the intensity of color will depend on how much melanin is present. So if a mole is a source of embarrassment or discomfort for you, we can remove it with electrolysis by treating the overgrown tissue and shrinking it down. But, remember, because moles can be cancerous, we will only remove your mole with a doctors note stating that the mole is not harmful.
With the first treatment, we can reduce the size of the mole while a second treatment gets it down to skin level, flat to the skin.
Most sessions last about 15-20 minutes and there is little or no risk of scarring. Sometimes 2 or 3 treatments may be needed, especially for larger moles.
