A mole is a cluster of skin cells that form a bump on the skin. It is usually brown or black. While most moles are harmless, some can become cancerous. Potentially cancerous moles will change in some fashion; they may get bigger, develop jagged borders, or change color. Such moles should always be examined before having them removed, for it is imperative to get rid of all of the cancer cells. Even if a mole is harmless, many clients still opt for mole removal in El Paso.
What is Electrocautery?
Electrocautery or electrocauterization is a type of minor surgery in which a trained member of our team uses an electrified probe to remove the mole. It can also be used to treat other small growths like skin tags or warts. Electrocautery works on both benign and potentially cancerous moles. The professional will place the probe directly on the mole and remove it.
