Skin moles can appear anywhere on the body including the
armpits, the back and even in the groin area – wherever
we have skin. Moles are extremely common and everyone has
at least one mole on their body while some have up to 40 moles.
This is why skin mole
removal is of importance. If you have them, you may well
want to know how to get rid of skin moles. Below, you will
find the different ways to remove skin moles.
There are many old fashioned home remedies to remove skin
roles such as squeezing grapefruit juice and applying to skin
moles repeatedly several times per day for about a month or
applying Aloe Vera gel to skin moles with a cotton bandage
and leaving for 3 hours so that the gel is completely absorbed.
More gel would need to be absorbed using a fresh bandage when
needed over several weeks. Home remedies such as these have
been used for years and in some cases handed down from generation
Another way to remove skin moles is by using a natural remedy
available on line and made from pure essential oils. You can
apply such a skin mole removal product gently and successfully
in the comfort of your own home safe in the knowledge that
there will be no burning or scarring – unlike a chemical
or excision solution. A popular product that users of Skintaghelp.com

A further way is for a doctor to cut the mole out of your
skin and stitch up the wound. This method can be painful and
will usually leave a scar. Alternatively, your doctor or dermatologist
may use the method known as excision with cauterization. With
this method, the moles are burnt off and the wound cauterized
by using electricity. Pain and scarring are possible.
The laser method of mole removal leaves no scarring but it
is still not perfect because it cannot be used for deep moles
because the laser light does not penetrate deeply enough.
Sometimes the cells below the surface of the mole grow back
when laser treatment is used which then means the mole itself
comes back too.
Moles are caused by the melanocytes in our skin. These melanocytes
are a type of skin cell that produces the brown pigment which
when exposed to the sun gives us our sun tan. Groups of melanocytes
often form colored lumps and these are moles and of course
ordinary moles are harmless. In spite of being harmless, we
still might want to remove skin moles for reasons of appearance.
Not all skin moles are harmless and if you notice any changes
in your skin moles, these should be checked by your doctor
or dermatologist as soon as possible who will advise on the
necessity or not for skin mole removal.
