Moles and Your Skin

Moles and growths on the skin that are usually black or brown. Moles can appear anywhere on the skin, in groups or alone.

Most moles appear in early childhood and during the first 25 years or a person’s life. It is normal to have between 10-40 moles by adulthood.

As the years pass, moles usually change slowly, becoming raised and or changing color. Sometimes, hairs develop in the mole. Some moles may not change at all, while others may slowly disappear over time.

Causes Of Mole ?

Moles can occur when cells in the skin grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. These cells are called melanocytes, and they make the pigment that gives skin its natural color. Moles may darken after exposure to the sun, during the teen years and during pregnancy.

Types Of Moles

About 1-3% of all babies have one or more moles when they are born. Moles that are present at birth are called congenital nevi.

Other types of moles include:
·      Junctional moles, which are usually brown and may be flat or slightly raised.

·      Dermal moles, which range from flesh-color to brown, are elevated, most common on the upper body and may containing hairs.

·      Sebaceous moles, which are produced by over-active oil glands and are yellow and rough-textured.

·      Blue moles, which are slightly raised, colored by pigment deep within the skin, and most common on the head, neck and arms of women.

·      Compound moles, which are slightly raised, range in color from tan to dark brown, and involve pigment-producing cells (melanocytes) in both the upper and lower layers of the skin (epidermis and dermis).

How To Remove Moles Quickly

Aloe vera may be useful as a remedy for skin conditions, such as psoriasis, cold sores, frostbite and burns. Applying aloe vera to your mole daily may help to get rid of it. To use aloe vera for mole removal, apply a generous amount of aloe vera to your mole, and then cover the mole with a clean cotton bandage. Leave the bandage on for three hours, and then remove it and wash away the aloe. Do this every day for three weeks and you may see results.

Garlic is another multi-purpose remedy, which many claim as an effective treatment for mole removal. Simply crush some fresh garlic into a paste and carefully apply directly to the mole, making sure to avoid the surrounding skin (Garlic can burn). Cover with a bandage and leave for a few hours or overnight. This method has been said to work in as little as five days. 

Apple cider vinegar- a miracle ingredient used in countless home remedies – is one of the most common treatments for mole removal. The acids contained in the vinegar, such as malic and tartaric acid, actually work to dissolve the mole, completely removing it from the skin. Simply swab a little onto clean skin everyday using a q-tip.

Iodine is a good option for people with more sensitive skin, as it won’t burn like garlic or apple cider vinegar. Apply the iodine directly to the mole using a q-tip, up to three times a day. Continue to do this every day, until you see a noticeable improvement in the mole’s appearance.

Honey is well-known as a delicious edible treat, but did you know it also boasts impressive anti-bacterial and healing properties? Dab a little honey directly onto the mole for a safe, natural treatment. Add in a drop of softening flaxseed oil too, a drop of soothing, if you like.

Mole removal creams are an affordable and fairly effective method of removing moles at home.
>> Most creams work by lightening the mole until it is no longer visible, which can happen in a matter of weeks.
>> Stronger, over-the-counter creams focus on peeling the skin away layer by layer until the mole removed.
>> Keep in mind that mole removal creams can actually leave worse scars than surgical removal.

A general use whitening cream can also be effective at reducing the appearance of moles, but it will no actually remove the mole. A whitening cream will lighten the color of your mole, making it less obvious.

Electro – surgery may be a good option to discuss with your doctor. Using electro – surgery for mole removal can reduce any bleeding that may occur, and this in turn will reduce the risk of complications result in minimal scarring and also the best thing is will promote rapid wound healing.

This is an alternate mole removal method which uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy the mole. It is only offered by certain clinics. Also, keep in mind that cryotherapy freezes the tissue, so there would not be any tissue available to send a lab for testing and you would not be able to find out if the mole is cancerous.

>> The liquid nitrogen can be applied to the mole directly using a cotton swab, or may be applied in the form of a spray.

>> The liquid nitrogen may need to be applied several times to completely get rid of the mole. It will cause a blister to form on the skin, but once this heals, the skin should return to normal.

This type of removal works best for surface level moles. The mole is shaved off with a scalpel.

>> First, the surgeon will cut the mole away, so it no longer forms a bump on the skin. 

>> With this type of removal, stitches are unnecessary. The wound will be cauterized or covered in a cream or solution to stop the bleeding. Then a topical antibiotic will be applied.

>> The wound will be bandaged up and you’ll be free to leave the office in a matter of minutes.
