Why Mole Removal Is Important For Health And Beauty Reasons


The advancements in skin care and maintenance today are very impressive. Scars and pimples are no longer something that people have to put up with. It’s the same thing with other skin problems like warts. While it’s not technically a skin problem, many people feel the same way toward moles. That is why it is now practiced largely.

What are moles and why do they exist? Basically, these moles are small, often dark, pigmented skin lesions, and their medical name is nevi. They all don’t look the same because they vary in colors, sizes and shapes. Congenital moles appear directly from birth, while some people’s they appear later in life. These are referred to as acquired moles. They are common and it’s not strange to have them appear; however, there are people who are more prone to them than others. The number of it in a person largely depends on physiology. You would probably even notice how fair-skinned people have more of them.

Heredity can also be blamed for it. My cousin has quite a number of it all over her body and no one was surprised, considering how her mother also had a substantial amount of them since she was young and she never really bothered to consider undergoing any form of removal methods for them. These are referred to as atypical or dysplastic moles. The appearance of atypical or dysplastic on the skin can also be blamed on the skin being exposed too long to the sun.

There isn’t a particular body part where moles exclusively appear in. They sometimes appear in the most unexpected of places and in varying concentrations. There aren’t any of it on my cousin’s face. But the concentration of moles is around her neck and upper chest area. Now she is contemplating going through some mole removal procedures so she can have a mole-free neck and upper chest.

What is the reason behind people looking to remove their moles? Moles are, after all, anomalies or irregularities on the skin. If your moles look like that of Cindy Crawford’s beauty mark then, by all means, let the moles stay. But we are not all Cindy Crawford or other supermodels with beauty marks. Lesser mortals -that’s us -are unlucky enough to be saddled with moles that are far from flattering. We would have to get rid of them.

Maintaining one’s looks is not the sole reason for getting rid of moles. Some moles actually pose the risk of melanoma or skin cancer. As far as skin diseases go, it is the deadliest type. They might start out innocently enough, but there are some moles that, over time, gradually develop into something cancerous. This is especially feared by those who have many moles all over the body.

Aside from observing the moles, you should also have a doctor diagnose whether your moles are cancerous or not. If the diagnosis says the moles are dangerous, have it removed immediately using any of the mole removal methods available. There are many removal creams or lotions that are tried and tested to be safe and effective, or you could undergo surgery. The type of mole removal method you will use will ultimately depend on the type (and the accompanying dangers) of moles that you have.
