About Warts and Moles

There are various types of lesions, including seborrheic keratosis, moles, and warts. Moles are dark, raised spots that occur due to an overgrowth of pigmented cells. Warts, on the other hand, are fleshy bumps that can feel grainy and are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). Sometimes moles and warts can be raised or lie beneath the skin's surface and cause a dark spot. While most skin lesions are harmless, many people still prefer to have them treated for cosmetic reasons or to avoid potential health risks, like skin irritation or cancer. At Imperial Dermatology in Hollywood, FL, Dr. Simona Bartos offers professional skin evaluations along with effective lesion removal treatments, including laser, excision, and shaving techniques.

Wart and Mole Removal Options

Factors, including the depth, location, and size of the wart or mole, will be utilized to determine the best technique for removal. The method that is most ideal for your skin condition will be determined during your consultation. We often remove warts using liquid nitrogen (cryotherapy), which causes the formation of a blister that eventually falls off. Moles and warts that are only skin deep or flush with the skin’s surface may be eligible for laser removal or a simple skin shaving technique. Those that are deep-seated may require excision, a minor surgical procedure. During an excision, Dr. Bartos will numb the area with local anesthesia, cut away the lesion, and then carefully sew the skin closed for maximal results and minimal scarring.
