Benefits of Laser Mole Removal

To say that moles are common would be an understatement — most people have 10-40 moles scattered around their bodies. If, however, your moles are located in highly prominent areas and command too much attention, the good news is that we have just the technology to clear these blemishes away, leaving you with nothing but smooth skin.

At High Rock Internal Medicine, our team offers both medical and aesthetic services, because we believe that our patients should look as good as they feel. To address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, we’ve equipped ourselves with the latest laser technology — the Icon® laser system.

Here’s a look at how we can quickly and easily remove problematic moles from your body to help you reach your cosmetic goals.

Moles 101

Before we get into our innovative laser mole removal technology, let’s quickly review what we’re up against when it comes to moles. As we mentioned, moles are incredibly common, and most everyone has them. 

Moles are made of clusters of pigmented cells, and they typically appear during your teens or early 20s. They can develop anywhere on your body, and many people aren’t even aware of certain moles since they’re not in visible areas.

Moles come in almost every conceivable size and shape, from the smallest, flattest dot to larger, raised growths. They also come in different colors that range from pink to dark brown.

In most cases, moles are perfectly harmless, but moles that develop later in life and have irregular shapes should be checked out, as they may be precancerous or cancerous.

Removing moles the modern way

Traditionally, there have been many ways to remove moles, from excision to burning or freezing them off. While effective, these mole removal techniques can often leave a scar behind, which defeats the purpose of the mole removal by creating a blemish that replaces the mole.

With our Icon laser technology, we’re able to target the area with precision, without harming the surface area of your skin. Using Icon, we deliver light energy into your skin, which is absorbed as heat by the melanin in the mole. This heat breaks apart areas of hyperpigmentation, leaving your body to flush away the debris naturally. 

In most cases, we only need one or two sessions to get rid of your mole(s), but this depends upon the size and number of the moles you want to eliminate.

After your Icon treatments, there’s no downtime, which means you’re able to get on with your day. We do recommend that you use sun protection to ensure that your skin remains free from areas of discoloration.

If you’d like to schedule your mole removal, please contact our office in Lexington, North Carolina by phone at 336-477-9110 or by booking your appointment online.
