Having moles is incredibly common, and the majority of the time, they are perfectly harmless. Moles may take a variety of different forms, differing greatly in shape, size, or colour, and maybe flat or raised. Whilst most moles present only a cosmetic concern, patients should think about having moles examined by a doctor or dermatologist for their own peace of mind, particularly if they begin to notice changes to the moles appearance or they become irritated. These changes can be indicative of the mole becoming cancerous, which is why it is important to have them seen to by a mole removal medical professional in London.

What does the treatment do?
At Dermasurge, consultant dermatologist Dr Hiba Injibar can thoroughly examine all moles using a dermatoscope and accurately diagnose any underlying conditions that may be causing changes in their appearance. From here, Dr Injibar can recommend the most appropriate treatment depending on the condition, size, and location of the mole, and carry out all procedures in-house at our Harley Street Clinic.
In order to effectively and safely treat any moles that are causing concern, a consultation with Dr Injibar is necessary in order to select the right treatment for you. This also allows her to check for other signs of medical conditions and provide the appropriate treatment using dermoscopy.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are a variety of option for the safe removal of moles. This includes laser removal, surgical removal, and mole shaving. During your consultation, Dr Injibar will help to determine the best course of action for you, and be able to provide you with more information on what to expect from the procedure, including aftercare and downtime.
In some cases, a few mole cells may be left in the skin, causing the mole to grow back in the same spot. However, this is relatively rare, and in most cases, moles are permanently removed in just one treatment
The best course of action varies from patient to patient, and will be determined during your consultation. The type of mole you have, as well as the current condition of the mole will factor in to which treatment options are available to you.
