If you notice any of these changes to a molemoles on your body it is important to visit your GP as changes to a mole may be an indication of a skin cancer called Melanoma.

Moles are caused by an overgrowth of Pigment Cells known as ‘Melanocytes’ which produce the colour or pigment in our skin. They tend to develop as a result of sun exposure though can appear spontaneously anywhere on the body.
Some clients experience a mild discomfort during treatment, those with sensitive skin may benefit from the use of an anaesthetic cream to numb the area and limit discomfort.
Prior to any treatment we will invite you to the Aesthetic of Liverpool clinic for a consultation where we you will be able to discuss your concerns and what you are hoping to achieve from treatment. Prior to treatment you must obtain written consent from your G.P/Dermatologist that your mole is safe to remove. This must be obtained prior to your consultation with your Aesthetics of Liverpool Practitioner. We will then be able to establish what treatment is best suited for you.
