Mole Removal New York, NY
Sheryl D. Clark, M.D. is one of New York City’s
Top-Rated Doctors for mole removal.
While removing moles can be quite straightforward, it is vital to have a trained specialist do the procedure. Dr. Clark provides safe, quick, and effective mole removal for her patients in New York City.
What Are Moles?
Moles are skin growths that can make an appearance anywhere on your body. While they are usually not a threat to your health, they can still impact your quality of life significantly. Moles are highly common, but they can occasionally appear in sizes and in areas that can make patients self-conscious. Large and uneven moles around the face can especially make it difficult to find confidence in your appearance. That is why Dr. Clark is proud to offer professional mole removal at MD Skin Science, so you can feel proud of how you look.
How Can Mole Removal Improve Your Skin?
Trying to remove moles at home might sound appealing, but it can lead to infections and dangerous results. Instead, visit Dr. Clark, a leading dermatologist in New York who can remove moles or other growths safely and effectively. With professional mole removal, you avoid the risk of infection or further health complications while also getting the most precise removal.
After your mole has been removed, you can also receive additional skin treatments to restore the treated area to an even skin tone. Treatments such as laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels are especially helpful for getting your skin to look and feel smooth wherever you had your mole removed.
What Body Areas Can We Remove Moles From?
Moles pop up almost anywhere on the body, and their sizes can also vary significantly. Fortunately, a trained dermatologist can help you with mole removal from almost any part of your body. We recommend seeking treatment as soon as you spot a mole somewhere you do not want it. By removing a mole while it is still small, you avoid a more involved treatment later down the road.
What Is the Treatment Like?
While this is technically a surgery, it is not only fast but quite comfortable. Dr. Clark has helped countless patients with various growths throughout the years and has developed techniques to improve the procedure overall. First, she numbs the area so that you will not experience pain during the removal process. She then uses a medical scalpel and removes the mole by shaving it off, either flush with the skin level or slightly below it, depending on your situation.
The entire process takes minutes, and you can return to your daily routine right away afterward. While there is some healing needed, it should not interfere with your daily life in any way. However, it will still be important to follow Dr. Clark’s instructions to avoid infection or additional scarring.
Can I Remove Skin Tags?
Skin tags are another noncancerous growth that many patients experience. At first glance, they may appear similar to moles, and many patients often mistake them for moles. They also can appear pretty much anywhere on your body, though they tend to show up in places where your skin folds on itself, such as:
- Thighs and groin
- Under breasts
Sometimes, skin tags rub off on their own and you might not even ever notice having one. Others can be more persistent, and those would require removal by a professional dermatologist. Fortunately, removing skin tags is easy and straightforward, with high rates of success.
Treatment options for skin tag removal include:
- Cryotherapy (just like how we remove some moles)
- Surgical removal (fast, easy, and safe when done by a professional)
- Electrosurgery (electric energy is used to burn off the skin tag)
- Ligation (by cutting of the blood flow of the skin tag, it should come off in time on its own)
Should I Have My Mole Removed?
While moles are generally not harmful to your health, they can still impact your self-confidence and appearance. In some cases, certain moles can even become cancerous, which then requires timely treatment. If you have a mole that you want removed, the first step is to visit a professional dermatologist like Dr. Clark. She can examine your situation and develop a plan to remove your mole while also provided additional treatments that could improve your results. If you have multiple moles, Dr. Clark can remove all of them in a single procedure session. If you have a mole that you could do without, contact MD Skin Science today to set up your personal consultation with Dr. Clark.
When Can I See Results?
Immediately! After your mole removal procedure, the mole is gone. However, there is still a brief time afterward for your body to heal. If you want to include additional skin treatments to improve your results, these can vary in terms of how long until you see results. However, most skin treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, can provide significant improvements after even a single treatment session.
While the removed mole should not grow back, you may develop other moles on other parts of your skin. Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed way to completely prevent moles from appearing. However, with a dermatologist on your side, you can always count on timely treatment to restore your skin to a healthy and even texture.
