What is the best treatment for moles?
While some moles are painless and invisible to the public, these dark-colored growths on the skin can be painful, bothersome, or simply unattractive depending on their size, color and location.
Dr. Jason Emer in Beverly Hills removes moles painlessly in a 5-minute procedure: first, a precision microblade “shaves” or removes the surface of the mole; Dr. Emer then uses laser treatments or electrosurgery to smooth the edges of the scar and prevent recurrence of the mole. In certain cases, Dr. Emer may use a YAG tattoo laser to address any deep, residual pigmentation that remains once the mole has been removed.
