Over the years I have had many clients ask me about mole removal. What sort of options are out there for them? Should they go to the doctors? Is laser therapy an option? What are the best mole removal creams they could use?
While there are many different options for mole removal – safety always comes first. The first step that anyone should take when it comes to mole removal is having your skin checked professionally by a dermatologist.
So what is a mole?
Moles are common skin growths that occur when the cells in the skin grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. Most people have in between 10 – 40 moles on their skin and these cells are called melanocytes. These cells make the pigment that gives skin its natural colour. Moles can be flat or raised and found in many different colours including brown, black, purple and reddish-brown.
While most moles are considered harmless, some people become very self-conscious about their moles, especially those that are on the face. Over time you may find that your moles affect the way you feel or look, for you removal may be a real option.
In terms of the less invasive removal options, there are various mole removal creams on the market that claim to use all-natural ingredients together with countless home remedies. The science behind these is minimal and we would suggest vigorous research before trying these types of products.For a medical/scientific solution your dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon will be the best person to see.
Remember, even if you have a visible mole (that is safe) it doesn’t mean that you need to remove it. Super model Cindy Crawford made the mole sexy, and you can too!
