Mole Removal

Sometimes, a mole falls on prime real estate and acquires the title of ‘beauty mark,’ Cindy Crawford style. Other times, a large, raised mole in an obvious, inconvenient or troublesome area queues Austin Powers: “MOLE!” That’s when mole removal by shave excision may just save the day. This simple, minimally invasive procedure can flatten raised moles on the spot in a single session, reducing their prominence and leaving you feeling more confident and comfortable in your own skin. Performed by our Cosmetic Physician Dr. Janet Ip, you can be sure that the procedure will be done with the outmost attention to detail and expertise.

What we do

Shave excisions use local anesthetic for optimal comfort. After the area is thoroughly numbed, our physicians utilize gentle strokes of a surgical blade to skillfully shave down the mole. Following light compression, a dressing may be applied and simple aftercare instructions reviewed. The treated spot will heal within 10 days to 2 weeks and may appear flat and brown or temporarily pink. Depending on the mole, regrowth may occur over months or years. Repeat shave excisions are possible. If lingering pigmentation is bothersome, alexandrite laser may be indicated to help reduce excess pigmentation or darkening.

Clinic Closures

Dear PS Family,

After much consideration, and in an effort to better protect our team and patients as well as helping to flatten the curve, we’ve decided to temporarily close both our clinics. We currently plan on re-opening on Monday, April 13th, but will continue to monitor the evolution of the situation daily.

In the next days, we will be contacting any patient booked with an appointment to reschedule and offer alternatives. Our physicians will be adding more days in the upcoming months to ensure proper continuity of care.

In the meantime, we invite you to stay connected with us through social media for updates on how to stay healthy and uplifted.

Keep looking after yourself and your skincare needs with our online store. We encourage you to stay home to shop – use the code STAYSAFE for a 15% discount! Orders will be shipped out once a week, so bear with us as there may be an extended shipping and handling timeline.

Note that we will continue to be attending to voicemails, emails, and incoming texts. We appreciate your understanding as it may take us longer than usual to get back to you during this time.

Please stay safe, stay home and take this time to enjoy meaningful connection with your loved ones.
—Dr. McGillivray and the #PSFamily
