Moles can be benign or malignant and caused by clusters of pigment-forming cells. There are three main forms of malignant skin cancers: Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and Melanoma.
In most cases, a nevus is benign and doesn't require treatment. Occasionally, they do turn into melanoma or other skin cancers. A nevus that changes shape, grows bigger, or darkens should be evaluated for removal.
Recommend annual body checks and biopsies of concerning moles.
Here at Premier Aesthetics, we can provide full body exams to rule out pre-malignant and malignant moles with biopsies and pathology reviews. Benign moles that are not aesthetically pleasing can be removed with IPL Lasers.
