Cosmetic Removal of Moles & Skin Tags
Marilyn Monroe had one. Cindy Crawford has one. In the Renaissance moles were considered beauty enhancers because they showed off a fashionable snow-white complexion. If they're bothersome or unsightly, however, moles and other benign growths on the face and body are worth removing.
If you're interested in removal, many procedures and techniques are available. Moles are most commonly shaved off, or excised and sutured. Tags are frozen, cauterized, or snipped. All these procedures can usually be performed on an outpatient basis. Healing and recovery times vary for each procedure, but they're relatively quick. The cost of treatment varies depending on the size and depth of the growth, as well as the number of growths to be removed.
