After living with moles on their skin for so many years, our patients are amazed to learn how easily they can be removed. In most cases, any sign of a mole or the procedure to remove it disappears in a short amount of time, leaving a patient with smooth, clear skin.
Every patient who visits Associated Dermatologists is offered a full body exam in order to evaluate their moles. Almost every adult has a few moles, though this may range into the dozens depending on skin tone, sun exposure, and genetics. Most moles appear on the skin during childhood and adolescence, and may gradually darken or lighten with time. These changes are expected, and seldom a sign of melanoma.
