Mole Removal
In Savannah, GA

Raised, dark moles can be an unsightly mark on the body, particularly on the face, but moles with irregular borders may also raise health concerns, as asymmetry could indicate that a mole is precancerous. Most flat, brown discolorations such as sunspots, birthmarks and freckles can be treated with intense pulse light or photodynamic therapy, but raised moles often grow deeper, requiring surgical removal. Many patients seek out a skilled facial plastic surgery team for this treatment in order to minimize scarring.
