Desc-Mole Removal by DTownTony | May 14, 2023 × Mole removal is a simple procedure where a dermatologist removes a mole from your skin. Moles are usually harmless, but sometimes they can change in shape, size, or color, which can indicate a problem. Mole removal is typically done with a surgical blade, laser, or electric current. The procedure is usually quick and painless and can be done in a dermatologist’s office. After the mole is removed, it may be sent to a lab for testing to ensure it’s not cancerous.
