You finally hear the good news; your mole is just a mole and non-cancerous. Of course, you’re relieved and full of excitement. However, the longer you look at it, you may slowly lose that excitement as you realize you really wanted this thing gone. Thankfully, cosmetic mole removal exists, and it’s totally natural to want to remove a mole that’s just bugging you. So whether it’s in the way, you find it unattractive, or you’re just tired of looking at it, let’s take a look at everything to know about non-cancerous mole removal.
Understanding Mole Removal
There are a couple of ways moles can be removed, and it depends on the dermatology office and the mole itself. However, the most common way is mole excision. This is where the mole is numbed and removed from the skin by a few small incisions. Then the skin is often sutured to prevent any large amounts of scarring. While scarring is bound to happen in some cases, it is far less noticeable than a mole and doesn’t get in the way of things like shaving.
Does the Mole Come back?
Mole removal is not a 100% guarantee that all mole tissue and cells will be removed. If enough residual is left over, then the mole could heal and regrow itself. This is entirely natural but incredibly frustrating at times. If a mole does regrow, it’s best to speak with your provider on what would be the best approach to ensure it doesn’t regrow.
Can I Remove It Myself?
It is highly recommended that you do not attempt to remove a mole yourself at home. Mole removal is considered a small surgical procedure and needs to be done in a sterile and precise way to reduce the chance of infections, excessive bleeding, excessive scarring, and needless damage. So trust a medical professional for this one.
