Moles

Moles
Moles are generally harmless and can be removed for cosmetic purposes. Bodyvie can safely remove moles and provide a histology for suspicious looking moles.

Treatments for Moles

Moles are growths on the skin that may appear brown or black. Moles are caused by cells called melanocytes clustering instead of spreading evenly in the skin. The compounding cluster of melanocytes creates a darker pigment on the skin which further darkens with sun exposure or during pregnancy.

Moles may be flat or raised, they are generally safe but any changes to your moles should be assessed by a doctor. Mole removal must be performed by a qualified and trained medical professional to ensure safe removal, prevent infection and scarring and detect any cellular abnormalities. If a mole is larger or raised, mole removal is considered a minor operation.

In some cases, if moles are small, flat and do not indicate any abnormalities, moles can be quickly removed with our PlexR device.

Bodyvie works closely with The Doctor’s Laboratory when histology must be completed in the case of abnormalities to analyse any suspicious cells. Dr Weber’s expertise ensures minimal scarring and a safe removal of moles.

SYMPTOMS of Moles

Moles appear brown, tan, red, pink or black and in a circular or oval shape. Moles can be small or up to a quarter inch in diameter. If moles are suspcious they can change in colour or shape.

"Absolutely love the clinic! I could not recommend it more! There is nowhere else I would trust with my skin. I have had nose reshaping, laser hair removal and a facial peel at Bodyvie. I could not be happier with all of the treatments, results and the after care I have received."
