What are Moles?
Moles are a sort of skin growth. Typically, they manifest as small, dark brown spots and are the result of collections of melanocyte cells. Generally speaking, people have between 10 to 40 moles that show up during early life and can alter in appearance or become less noticeable with age. Moles are not cancerous, however, melanoma which is a kind of skin cancer can sometimes originate from one. If your mole has grown in size, changed shape, or color, it could be a warning sign of cancer so it’s important to go and see a doctor
What do Moles look like?
Generally, they vary in size from tiny dots to more than an inch (around 2 ½ cm) across, and they can be symmetrical (having identical halves when divided by a line), round or oval, raised or flat, hairy or smooth, as well as red or various shades of tan, yellow, brown, blue gray, and nearly black.

Punch excision of a mole is a minor surgical procedure that uses a special circular punch blade to remove deeper set moles which are less than 8 mm in depth. The surgery can be complete and successful when performed with this tool by penetrating into the subcutaneous layer.
It is used for moles on the trunk or extremities. Getting rid of a mole by shaving it off is similar to an excision. Your doctor will use a scalpel to shave away layers of the mole until it’s gone. Before they start, they’ll give you an anesthetic to ensure you don’t feel any pain. You usually don’t need stitches after this type of mole removal, however, there may be a small pink patch where the mole used to be.
The surgery to remove a mole begins with the injection of local anesthetic into the area. If your mole is deep, or if it has grown too close to other skin areas, then stitches may be necessary to close the wound after it’s removed.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Does mole removal leave a scar?
Whether mole removal results in a scar depends on the technique used. With surgical excision, there will be some scarring, but a skilled surgeon can minimize this by using meticulous techniques and layered closure. Laser removal typically does not leave any scarring. Other methods like shave removal or cryosurgery may leave a small scar. Proper aftercare can help reduce scarring as well. For the least possible scarring speak to your doctor about laser mole removal, which is virtually scar free.
Is mole removal painful?
Most mole removal techniques don't cause much pain. The area will be numbed with local anesthesia beforehand so you don't feel pain during the procedure. Afterward there may be some mild discomfort, swelling or redness which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication if needed. More complex removals may require additional anesthesia.
How long does it take to recover?
Recovery time varies based on the mole removal method. Simple shave removals recover within 7-10 days typically. Excision removals take 2-3 weeks for the skin to fully close and 6 weeks for the scar to mature. Laser removal causes superficial wounds that heal within a week or two. Full recovery can range from 1 week to 2 months.
When can I resume normal activities?
Light activity can be resumed quite soon after mole removal, but strenuous exercise should wait 1-2 weeks. Most people can return to work/school within a few days if the mole was in a covered area. Activities like swimming should be avoided until the wound is fully closed - usually 7-14 days. Driving can be resumed once you can sit comfortably and are off pain medications.
Will it come back after removal?
When removed properly, moles should not grow back in the same spot. In very rare cases, a small portion of the mole cells may remain and cause a new mole to form. This is unusual with excision and laser techniques. Your doctor will monitor the healing and follow up with you if any new growths develop.
