Mole / Skin Tag Removal 

Mole and Skin Tag Removal Options

Moles and skin tags or other kinds of skin growths may appear on different body parts. While these outgrowths are generally not malignant, they may be conspicuous enough to affect your looks. In the rare event that these growths turn malignant, they may also pose a risk to your health.  Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides mole and skin tag removal treatments to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities. 

Common Features of Moles and Skin Tags 

The most common characteristics of moles include: 
  • They are more likely to appear in children. 
  • They are more common on body parts exposed to sunlight, although they may appear anywhere on the body. 
  • They usually rise above the skin and may be of the same skin color or pigmented. 
Skin tags usually present features such as: 
  • They appear as soft, tiny masses of loose tissue held together on a common base. 
  • They could number from one to hundreds. 
  • Tags by themselves are harmless but may cause pain if they get enmeshed in your clothes. 
  • They occur mostly on the eyelids and neck, or in the armpits, folds of the breast, or creased skin areas that are prone to rubbing and friction. 
Removal of moles and skin tags is a safe procedure provided it is performed by a professional working in a certified medical spa. Every year, several people undergo this quick and simple mole and skin tag removal.  

How to Plan for Mole and Skin Tag Removal 

When you consult a doctor for the removal, they will first conduct a thorough examination of your skin tag or mole. Next, they will suggest a procedure that is tailored to fetch you the best results. The doctor will also explain the available modes of treatment, the expected outcome and any care to be taken after completion of the procedure.  The procedure is a simple one, and easily performed at qualified medical spas. Repeat treatments are rare after successful removal of the existing mole and skin tags. However, if new ones appear elsewhere on your body, make sure you get an evaluation by the skin care expert at the med spa. 

Procedures for Mole and Skin Tag Removal 

Removal procedures depend on the location of the moles. Those located on the superficial layer of skin need nothing beyond a simple shaving off. Moles that arise from deeper parts of skin may require an excision for complete removal. The tiny cut left after this will be stitched with a fine suture.  The most common procedure for skin tags is a simple shaving off. Sometimes, med spa providers may employ the technique of cryotherapy, which uses liquid nitrogen, for freeing skin tags.    Removal procedures for moles and skin tags are in-office procedures and do not require any sedation or anesthetic administration. However that does not mean you can do them yourself at home; always consult skin experts at the med spa for such procedures.  Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for mole and skin tag removal.
