Moles & Birthmarks IN Burbank, CA
A mole and birthmark removal procedure can reduce the appearance of several moles and birthmarks, including brown, pink, red, or a shade that blends with your skin tone. A mole can be atypical, congenital, or acquired. Atypical moles have irregular shapes and are more prominent than congenital and acquired moles. A congenital mole appears at birth and is flat. These moles don’t become cancerous. Acquired moles develop throughout the years, and sun damage can be the cause. These moles are round and can get darker.
The advantages of this treatment include:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- No downtime, scars, and incisions
- Precise and accurate treatment
- Healthy skin cells are preserved
- Improved confidence
