Moles

Mole Removal in Austin

Moles are very common, and most people have between 10 and 40 of them. Moles may be pink, tan, brown or a color that is very close to the person’s normal skin tone.

Melanocytes produce melanin, the pigment that gives skin its natural color. When skin is exposed to the sun, melanocytes produce more pigment, causing the skin to tan or darken. Sun protection with appropriate clothing and sunscreen is the best way to avoid mole development.

Mole Removal and Treatment

Most moles are harmless and do not require removal or treatment. However, if you have moles, it’s important to keep an inventory of their number and appearance.

If your moles change in size, shape or color, or if you develop new moles as an adult, you should schedule an appointment to have them evaluated and possibly removed by one of our Board-Certified Dermatologists.
Vitalogy has nine Austin area locations to assist with mole removal: Bastrop, Burnet, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Harker Heights, Marble Falls, Pflugerville, San Marcos, and Southwest Austin.
