Say goodbye to irritating moles with quick and effective laser mole removal treatment
Moles, medically referred to as “nevus” or “nevi”, are small areas of dark spots that appear on the surface of the skin. They can vary in shape, colour, size, and texture. Although most moles are non-cancerous, increased number of moles can heighten chances of developing a mole cancer, called melanoma. The choice of mole removal has become popular for both health and cosmetic reasons.
Moles are caused by the concentration of skin melanocyte cells. The cluster of melanocyte cells is what makes moles apparent to the eyes. These cells are the pigment-producing cells that give skin its natural colour. While some moles are caused genetically, others are a result of excessive sun exposure and sunburns, or hormonal change. Sun exposure can also further darken existing moles and increase the number of moles.

Congenital nevi are those that are found in infants and are present on the skin at birth. 1% of newborn babies are likely to be born with a congenital nevus.
These are moles that develop after birth, often during the first two decades of one’s life. People with these types of moles are often times at greater risk for melanoma.
Also referred as “dysplastic nevi,” these moles have the highest risk of becoming cancerous. These moles are generally larger in size and have indistinct shapes.

A safe procedure that uses light electro currents to remove undesirable mole tissues by targeting the top layer of the skin, leaving surrounding skin untouched.
Lasers have become the number one choice for mole removal, offering the most convenient, safest, and effective procedure. Lasers can target the mole’s pigment cells directly without damaging or scarring surrounding skin cells.
