Non-Cancerous Mole Removal in Wellesley, MA:

Most moles are completely harmless and pose no real health risks, but for some people, they can take a toll on self-esteem and even cause anxiety or depression. Sometimes, moles may be nuisances, especially if they are on a part of the body where clothing rubs or that is likely to be injured during everyday activities. Premier Dermatology offers elective mole removal services for these and other reasons, allowing you to be free of your mole and regain your self-confidence. Mole removal procedures vary a great deal depending on the type, size, and even location of the mole. There are two primary procedures that your dermatologist might use. The first is shave excision, which involves carefully slicing away at the mole with a tiny tool much like a razor, then minimizing the appearance of the wound with a device that sends electrical impulses to the area. This is known as “feathering” as it helps to blend the edges of the mole into the surrounding skin, making the scar far less noticeable.

The other mole removal option is surgical excision, which goes deeper than a shave excision. In this procedure, the dermatologist uses a scalpel to completely remove the mole – all the way down into the subcutaneous fat layer. After the removal of the mole, the wound is stitched closed. In either procedure, the dermatologist is likely to send the mole to a lab for examination to rule out cancer. To learn more about elective mole removal, or to schedule a consultation to find out which procedure is right for your needs, call Premier Dermatology today.

I have been going to Dr. Lunder for 15 years+. She is a wonderful dermatologist. She watches for precancerous spots and takes great care of my skin. She is always willing to discuss cosmetic treatments but never pushes anything. Her assistant Sue is also knowledgeable and comforting. Her office Premier Dermatology has a very welcome staff. I highly recommend Dr. Lunder and this office.
