MOLE REMOVAL & Treatment
No Moles, No Problem
Remove Moles and Lesions in a Non-Invasive Surgery
Some people love the mole on their face and consider it part of their image (hello, Cindy Crawford!).
But you feel that it distracts from the real you. That no one is really seeing you, just your mole.
Hiding it doesn’t work — makeup just rubs off. It’s starting to affect your self-esteem.
You’ve Googled “mole removal on face” and “mole removal near me” more times than you care to admit.
How can you get rid of this thing already?
No worries, Dr. Marc Kayem can remove it — and with no cutting, no stitches, and no pain.
Is My Mole Suspicious?
Moles can be classified as benign or a sign of a more serious medical condition such as skin cancer or melanoma. Having a comprehensive evaluation with a medical doctor is a benefit and Dr. Kayem can provide a diagnosis.
Moles typically fit into three categories: congenital moles, common moles and atypical moles.
- Congenital mole (congenital nevus) — A mole that is present at birth.
- Common mole (nevus) — Most people have 10-40 common moles. They are small, round, dome-shaped and have an even color.
- Atypical mole (dysplastic nevus) — Moles that have an odd shape; they may look like melanoma but aren’t. They are larger, irregularly shaped or textured and may contain several colors.
Since every mole looks somewhat different, you may be asking yourself whether your mole is cancerous. It turns out that most of the time moles are harmless, but being vigilant about your skin is always good practice.
Follow your mole ABCDE’s for certain features that may call for further attention:
- Asymmetry — One half of the mole does not match the other half.
- Border — Edges of the mole are ragged, uneven or irregular.
- Color — Multiple shades make up the mole instead of one even color.
- Diameter — The mole is bigger than the eraser of a pencil.
- Evolution — The mole continues to change in size, shape or color. Also, watch out for any new symptoms, including itching or bleeding.
Other skin issues that are similar to moles include seborrheic keratosis and skin tags — both of which you may want to remove because of discomfort or for aesthetics — but they are generally harmless.
No matter the mole, you can rely on Dr. Kayem to come up with a personalized plan for you. His mole removal thoroughness will put your mind at ease. If warranted, he will biopsy the tissue to ensure that it is benign.
Dr. Kayem is masterful at removing all types of moles from anywhere on the body. Additionally, his cosmetic expertise makes him the best doctor to remove moles in the most sensitive and visible areas, such as your face, neck, arms, breasts, shoulders, hands and legs.
Revolutionary Mole Removal
Most mole removal surgery involves incising, freezing or “burning off” the mole. It is an uncomfortable process that may often leave a scar.
But wait — there is a better, non-invasive mole removal option.
Dr. Kayem’s revolutionary non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) mole removal treatment painlessly removes moles in just a few minutes, using only local anesthesia.
- Benefits of RF mole removal include:
- Little to no scarring
- Minimal damage to surrounding skin
- No bleeding
- Minimal pain after the application of local anesthesia
The radiofrequency waves are delivered through a wire loop, effectively shaving and cauterizing the mole at the same time. The treated area usually forms a mild scab that heals within a few days. This RF mole removal technique leaves a barely-visible scar, or none at all.
By now you should be ready to consult with Dr. Kayem to plan your procedure for a blemish-free complexion.
