Mole & Skin Tag Removal

Smooth, Beautiful, Healthy Skin.

Mole & Skin Tag Removal

The providers at University Dermatology offer the cosmetic removal of moles and skin tags (if they do not need to be removed for medical reasons).

 

If you are interested in removal of these lesions, many procedures and techniques are available. Moles are most commonly shaved off and the edges feathered out into the surrounding skin – creating minimal potential for scarring and maintaining the natural contours of your face or body.  If necessary, they can also be excised and sutured.

 

Skin tags are typically removed via scissor excision or electodessication, depending on their size, number, and location. 

 

All these procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis. Healing and recovery times vary for each procedure, but they are relatively fast. The cost of treatment varies depending on the treatment type, the size and depth of the growths, as well as the number of lesions to be removed.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Please note the following updates from our practice:

-We already follow strict infection control protocols in our clinic that keep our facilities safe for all patients, and we are continuing to follow these best practices.

-In addition, we have implemented a special COVID-19 preparedness plan and have asked any employees who are feeling sick to remain at home until they are better.

As a patient, you can help us protect the health and well-being of our patients and our community by following these guidelines:

•If you have a fever or are experiencing symptoms of a respiratory infection (e.g., cough, sore throat, fever or difficulty breathing),or history of travel to areas experiencing transmission of COVID-19 or contact with possible COVID-19 patients, please call our office to cancel your appointment.  When you are completely well or had a waiting period, we will do our best to reschedule any cancellations from this time period as soon as possible.

•Plan to come to your scheduled appointment alone, so that there aren't any extra unnecessary people in the office at one time. If you are a new patient, please refer to our website and download the necessary paperwork. If you do not have this information prepared, this could delay your appointment or you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.

•If you have a face mask or face covering, we strongly recommend wearing it as an added precaution.  Our clinical staff will all be wearing masks.

•When you arrive, please read the instructions on the front door. Then check in at the front desk. At that time, our staff will instruct you regarding check in procedures.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us keep all our patients and staff safe and healthy during this time.
