Mole and Wart Removal
Moles, warts and skin tags are extremely common on the face and other parts of the body. They can be cosmetically embarrassing as well as cause problems when applying make-up, shaving or catching on clothing.
All these conditions are treated by very similar methods and are all very simple procedures. Most take less than 20 minutes and need little pain relief.
Moles (naevi) are pigmented areas of the skin. Most appear as dark brown spots but moles can also be yellow or blue. Moles can be flat, raised, elevated and dermal, appearing anywhere on the skin but especially on the arm, head and neck.
Moles are sometimes regarded as fashionable and are even called “beauty marks” when found in women’s cheeks. However, not all moles are beautiful, they can be very unsightly especially when they protrude from the skin.
Typical reasons for mole removal are because there is a risk it has become malignant (cancerous) or because it has become a nuisance (for example catching on clothes or a razor), or simply because it is unsightly or upsetting to the person with the mole.

Warts generally go away on their own within months or years. Warts can occur anywhere on the body. They are most common among children and young adults.
