Keep track of your moles with Mole Mapping
Facial moles can be monitored for changes and abnormalities through a process known as Mole Mapping. If you have several moles over your body and find it hard to keep track of their size and shape, this service is a useful way of ensuring you don’t miss any potentially harmful developments. It involves having several digital full body photographs taken, which can later be compared to spot any signs of malignant melanoma, a common form of skin cancer.

How to best look after your moles
Sun exposure is the main cause of skin cancers, so protecting your skin from the sun is crucial for skin health. Experts advise to avoid direct sun exposure between 11am and 3pm on sunny days, and to wear protective clothing in addition to using sunscreen regularly.
“Sunscreen should be applied 15 to 30 minutes before going outside and should be reapplied every two hours. Regular self-monitoring of your moles to look for any changes in colour, shape or size is also recommended. Warning signs for cancerous changes from existing or new moles/freckles can be easily remembered using the ABCDE rule outlined below:”
- Asymmetry – irregular asymmetrical shape
- Border – irregular or blurred edges
- Colour – colour changes: uneven colour with different shades of black, brown or pink
- Diameter – any rapid changes in size. Most melanomas are at least 6mm
- Evolving – when a mole changes in size, shape or colour, or begins to bleed or scab
If you notice any of these changes, you should seek advice from a doctor. At sk:n we have experienced doctors that can help check your moles and give you peace of mind.
Will The Mole Grow Back?
There is a very small chance that your mole might reoccur after having it removed, as a few mole cells may remain in the skin. If this is the case, we will book you in for another treatment. Usually, however, you will find that one treatment session is enough.
Where On My Body Can I Have A Mole Removed?
You can have a mole removed from anywhere on your body, including your face. Our doctors have years of experience removing moles from the face and sensitive and hard to reach places.
What Happens After Treatment?
After your mole has been removed the skin left behind may feel tender for a few days and will need to be covered. It’s also best to use a strong sunscreen on the area for six months, as it will be more sensitive to sunlight.
Does Mole Removal Hurt?
Laser Removal is described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band. For Shave Removal and Excision Removal, the area will be numbed with a local anaesthetic so you won’t feel anything.
Is Mole Removal Safe?
At sk:n you will be in the safest of hands, whichever removal method is selected by you and your doctor. During your initial consultation, your practitioner will explain any possible side effects and how to avoid them. The doctor you see will have spent intensive time treating within the industry and will have trained within the sk:n Academy, where they are tested against strict medical protocols exceeding all regulatory and clinical requirements. We work with some of the UK’s leading doctors and dermatologists and receive more NHS referrals for mole removal than any other skincare provider.
Can I Have My Mole Removed Just Because I Don’T Like The Look Of It?
Of course, unless your doctor feels there is a medical reason not to remove your mole. Unlike the NHS, who will only remove moles if they are potentially dangerous, at sk:n we are used to removing moles for cosmetic reasons.
What Is A Mole?
A common mole is a coloured spot on the skin that develops when pigment cells (melanocytes) grow in clusters. The medical term for moles is melanocytic naevi and most adults usually have between 10 and 40 on their body. Although common moles may be present at birth, they usually appear later in childhood and increase during teenage years. During pregnancy moles often get darker and they can fade away completely from around the age of 50.
What Happens At A Mole Removal Consultation?
You will see a doctor or Medical Director thoroughly trained in mole removal treatment at your consultation. They will perform a thorough mole check, advising on whether removal treatment is required. You may have specific concerns and questions about the different methods of treatment, which your doctor will discuss. The method of removal depends on the size and shape of the mole and will be decided in your consultation.
