    Treatment & Technology

    Our Approach

    Mole excision can be performed on the face or body at Project Skin MD® Ottawa. Before we begin any treatment, we take the time to conduct a thorough, personalized consultation. This helps us understand your goals and choose an approach that meets your expectations.

    Experienced Professionals

    Only our experienced general practitioners perform mole removals at our Ottawa clinic. With over 20 years of combined experience, Dr. Antoine Lachance are dedicated to delivering the best practices in Aesthetic Medicine to meet your aesthetic goals.

    Mole Removal Techniques: Treatment and Technology

    To ensure your comfort, we apply a local anesthetic. Once the targeted area is numb, our physician will employ precise strokes of a surgical blade to gently shave the mole and reduce its size. After light compression, we’ll apply a dressing and provide aftercare instructions.

    Generally, the healing process takes ten days to two weeks. The potential for regrowth varies based on the mole and individual—some people experience recurrence over months or years. In these cases, repeat treatments may be required. 

    Safety and Comfort

    Your safety and comfort is our priority. Our mole removal procedures at Project Skin MD® Ottawa use meticulous attention and up-to-date practices and harness the expertise of our general practitioners. We’re here to address any concerns you may have before, during, or after treatment.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a mole?

    A mole is a common type of skin growth that can appear on the surface of your skin. Moles may appear small, circular, or oval-shaped and can range from brown, black, pink, or flesh-coloured. They can be flat or raised. Moles can appear anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, chest, back, arms, and legs. They are typically harmless and can develop at any age. However, if you notice any suspicious changes in a mole, it’s essential to consult your doctor.

    Why would someone consider mole removal?

    The most common motivation for mole removal is cosmetic. Many individuals choose to remove moles that they find aesthetically unappealing, highly visible, or located in inconvenient locations on the body. For example, moles on the face, neck, or hands are common for removal.

    In other cases, moles can become irritated due to friction from clothing or jewelry, leading to discomfort, itching, or even pain. In these situations, mole removal is an effective way to improve your comfort.

    Does mole removal hurt?

    Thanks to local anesthesia, mole removal procedures are generally well-tolerated and relatively painless. Before the treatment, we’ll apply an anesthetic to numb the area surrounding the mole, ensuring you don’t feel pain during the process. It is important to keep in mind that although the area is numbed, you may still experience some sensations, such as pressure or pulling, as the mole is shaved off. 

    After we remove the mole, you may experience some mild soreness or discomfort at the removal site for a short period. This discomfort is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers if needed.

    Is there recovery time after a mole removal procedure?

    You can typically return to your normal activities immediately but may experience some soreness, redness, or swelling during recovery. After the procedure, you’ll receive a bandage or dressing over the removal site to promote healing. We’ll provide instructions for aftercare. 

    In most cases, it takes about two to three weeks to heal from mole removal. During this time, the wound will close, forming a scab that eventually falls off, revealing new skin underneath.

    Will mole removal leave a scar?

    The presence and extent of scarring can depend on several factors, such as the mole’s size, depth, location on the body, and the method used. We use shave excision as our primary method for mole removal, which often results in less scarring than other methods.
