Mole/Birth Mark

What are Moles and Birthmarks?

A birthmark is a congenital, benign visible change in colour, texture or consistency of skin that is present at birth or sometimes appears after some days of birth. Some birthmarks can fade with time on their own, or some can persist for a lifetime. 

Melanocytic nevi (moles) result from the benign proliferation of melanocytes with special features like presence in nests, and such cells are called nevus cells. Small tiny moles are not of concern, but when they are numerous and large, patients may need the removal of such moles because of cosmetic concerns or chances of cancerous changes. Removing a mole by Laser is like an office procedure without any side effects.

Our clinic delivers the safest and easiest procedures for mole and birthmark removal in Jaipur. 

Treatments for Moles and Birthmarks.

Depending on the type of birthmark, our dermatologist accordingly suggests the treatments for the removal. If the birthmark is harmless and is present at the early stage, keep an eye on the growth of the birthmark, and whenever the clients feel changes, our dermatologist goes ahead with the removal process. 

No medicine or cream can clean a mole or remove moles.

Moles need to be removed with Laser or surgical treatment. Our mole removal dermatologist takes utmost care and safety in mole removal treatment.

There are two type of birthmarks:

vascular birthmarks and pigmented birthmarks. Vascular birthmarks (i.e., hemangiomas and port-wine stains) are made up of blood vessels that haven’t formed correctly. They are usually red. Pigmented birthmarks (i.e., café au lait spot, Mongolian spot, congenital nevus, Nevus of Ota, Becker’s nevus) can sometimes be effectively treated with lasers. Though moles can be birthmarks, moles cannot be treated with lasers.

Hemangiomas and port wine stains

Lasers are helpful in treating the red superficial component of the hemangioma and are also used if a hemangioma is bleeding. When a hemangioma is deep, other treatment options may be required. Lasers are the treatment of choice for port wine stains. It may take 10 or more treatments (with a one to two month waiting period between sessions) to completely treat a port wine stain. Early initiation of treatment is recommended since as port wine stains mature, they become more difficult to treat. An additional benefit of treating a port wine stain is that it can also help reduce the risk of further darkening of the birthmark.
