Moles, although typically harmless, can be an unwanted cosmetic feature for some. If you would like to remove a mole for health or cosmetic reasons, Florida Skin Center offers mole removal treatments. We offer this and other treatments to those living in and around Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres, Punta Gorda, and Fort Myers, FL.
What is a Mole?
A mole is a skin abnormality that develops when skin grows in a cluster instead of spreading out. These are usually dark, small patches of skin no larger than the size of an eraser head. Although they are most often harmless, some moles can develop into melanoma skin cancer. If you are concerned about a mole that may be cancerous, please refer to our skin cancer treatment page.
How is a Mole Removed?
At Florida Skin Center, we specialize in a number of techniques that enable patients to achieve safe, effective mole removal. First, we offer cryosurgery, which is a method that involves freezing off the mole using liquid nitrogen. We also use the Candela VBeam pulsed dye laser, as it is a versatile treatment that can comfortably and safely treat a range of skin abnormalities. Finally, we also offer excision mole removal, which involves cutting the mole off of the skin.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Your mole removal treatment will depend on the technique used for removal. Cyrosurgery and VBeam pulsed dye laser treatments involve very brief recovery times, allowing guests to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. However, it may take a few weeks to notice the full results from treatment. Cyrosurgery causes the mole to blister and fall off following treatment. Pulsed dye laser treatments will also create a gradual improvement, with some guests necessitating multiple treatments to achieve their desired results. If your mole is being removed by excision, we will use a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort during your treatment. You may also have some discomfort, swelling, and scarring following your treatment.
How Much Does Mole Removal Cost?
In order to determine the exact cost of your treatment, we invite guests to schedule an appointment so that we can develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy both your health and cosmetic goals. Once a treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide a clear breakdown of costs. To make our services accessible to those who need them, we offer flexible financing and payment options. We also accept insurance when applicable.
