Mole Removal

Moles are typically removed in the office with a local anesthetic. The mole is shaved off at skin level and then the skin is lightly cauterized with an electric needle. There are no stitches and the area typically heals in two to three weeks.

Mole removal is usually covered by insurance if the mole is irritated by clothing, shaving, or other activities, or if the mole has changed in size or color, or if the mole has been itchy, tender or has bled.
