Do you have a mole you have wanted to remove for a long time but are worried about the procedure? At Derm.ca Dermatology & Esthetics in Calgary, AB, we can treat skin growths like moles comfortably right from our office. Mole removal is most often a simple outpatient procedure with few side effects.
Moles can develop at any age and sometimes appear due to sun exposure. Moles may appear in inconvenient places and could interfere with routine activities like shaving. They may also appear on unwanted areas of the body such as the face or the neck.
Besides simple mole removal, Derm.ca Dermatology & Esthetics can also help with skin cancer removal, such as basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and melanomas.
What Is Mole Removal?
Mole removal is the excision of moles or skin cancers. Many excisions are straightforward procedures done right in our office. Some procedures, such as8 skin cancers may require coordination for a hospital visit. Because no skin growths are alike, please call us to schedule a consultation to decide the best course of action for you.
Derm.ca Dermatology & Esthetics can remove moles from:
- The face, including the nose, eyelid, and eyebrows
- The neck
- The body, including the back and stomach
Is Mole Removal Safe?
Mole removal is safe. In most cases, it is a simple in-office procedure. In other cases, we will arrange a hospital visit if necessary, depending on the extensiveness of the excision.
What Can I Expect?
Your exact recovery period depends on the excision. Simple mole removals rarely require much recovery time. Those who have more extensive removal procedures may need to take time to rest and recover afterward.
Our team also may send a specimen out for analysis to make sure no further treatment is necessary. Drs. Alanen or Shoimer and our medical team can closely go over any instructions for follow-up after the procedure with you. We can help you every step of the way.
Am I A Good Candidate?

- Benign unwanted skin growths such as moles, skin tags, or ulcers
- Malignant skin growths such as basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, or melanomas
