How Moles Develop
Cells called melanocytes produce melanin, which gives skin its color or pigment. Normally, these cells disperse evenly throughout the skin. When these cells grow together in a mass, moles develop.
Moles grow anywhere on the skin as either single growths or grouped together. They typically appear brown or black and usually number anywhere from 10 to 40. Moles usually begin appearing during childhood, with additional moles developing into a person’s 30s and few developing beyond the 30s.
Some moles change slowly over the years, either changing in color, becoming elevated, growing hair or even disappearing. Factors related to pregnancy, puberty and sun exposure can affect moles, causing them to darken, for instance.
Skin tags occur as small flaps of hanging tissue, usually on the neck, chest or back, beneath the breasts or underarms or in the groin. They can develop in anyone, but they are most common in women and seniors. They are harmless and typically painless, but they can be irritated by rubbing clothing, drying with a towel or wearing a necklace.
Mole Removal methods
LASER REMOVAL – If your mole is small, you can have it removed with laser treatment. Laser Mole Removal uses light energy to break down the pigment within the mole. Laser Mole Removal is a good option for removing a mole from the face as there is less risk of scarring.
EXCISION REMOVAL – Some moles may need to be cut away via an excision. This procedure is performed under local anesthetic and requires a small stitch in the skin afterward. A small scar will be left, which will fade over time.
How Does Skin Tag Removal Work ?
Skin tags can be removed with clean surgical scissors or a surgical scalpel. These methods require prepping the area to avoid infection. The area is first cleaned and then a mild anesthetic may be applied. A professional will ensure the cut is not too deep and does not cause excessive bleeding. A liquid nitrogen freezing treatment is effective for removing skin tags by freezing and killing the skin cells in the growth and allowing the skin tag to fall off over time. Dermatologists may also recommend burning the skin tag with an electrical current to remove the skin tag.
