What are Moles?

Moles, also known as nevi, are common skin growths that can appear anywhere on the body. They form when melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells, grow in clusters. Most moles are harmless and can appear anywhere on the skin.

Characteristics of Moles

Colour: Moles can be brown, black, pink, red, or even skin-coloured.
Shape: They can be round, oval, or irregular in shape.
Size: Moles can be as small as a pinhead or larger than a pencil eraser.
Texture: They may be flat or raised, smooth or rough, and some may have hair growing from them.

Types of Moles

Moles come in different shapes, sizes, and colours. The most common types include:

Congenital Moles

These moles are present at birth and vary greatly in size. Larger congenital moles have a higher risk of becoming cancerous.

Acquired Moles

These develop over time, typically during childhood or young adulthood. They can be flat or raised and may change in appearance over time.

Atypical Moles

Also known as dysplastic nevi, these moles have irregular shapes, borders, and colour variations. They may resemble melanoma and require monitoring.

What is Mole Removal Effective For?

Cancer Prevention

Removing moles that show signs of abnormal growth or changes in colour, shape, or size can prevent the development of skin cancer, particularly melanoma.

Aesthetic Improvement

Removing moles that are large, dark, or in prominent locations can enhance appearance and boost self-confidence.

Irritation Reduction

Moles that are frequently irritated by clothing, shaving, or jewellery can be removed to alleviate discomfort.

Skin Smoothness

Eliminating raised moles can result in a smoother skin texture.

Areas Suitable For Mole Removal

Mole removal can be performed on various parts of the body, depending on the mole’s size, type, and location. These include:

Mole Removal Treatment Options

At our clinic, we provide a range of treatments to cater to various needs and preferences. Here are the primary methods we use for safe and effective mole removal:

Fractional CO2 Laser

CO2 laser is commonly used for mole removal. This is an effective way to remove benign moles and textural irregularities of the skin with the use of a carbon dioxide (CO2) component to precisely vaporise and remove growths on the skin, such as moles, warts and unwanted lumps and bumps.

Benefits of Fractional CO2 laser:

  • Precise targeting of the affected area.
  • Quick procedure with minimal downtime.



Cryotherapy involves freezing the mole with liquid nitrogen, causing it to fall off. This method is typically recommended for small, non-cancerous moles.

Benefits of cryotherapy:

  • Quick and efficient procedure
  • Promotes natural healing of the skin

Electrocautery uses electrical currents to burn off the mole. This method is precise and can remove moles of various sizes.

Benefits of electrocautery:

  • Improves overall skin texture
  • Stimulates collagen production
Chemical Peels

Chemical peels involve applying chemicals to remove superficial moles. This method helps to exfoliate and renew the skin.

Benefits of chemical peels:

  • Improves skin texture
  • Promotes skin renewal

Choosing the Right Mole Removal Method

Selecting the appropriate mole removal method depends on various factors, including the mole’s characteristics, the patient’s skin type, and any underlying health conditions. A consultation with Dr. Sam Pradeep is recommended to determine the best approach.
