Skin Moles and Laser Treatment

Skin Moles and Laser Treatment

Among the skin problems faced by men and women, adults and children, moles (Nevi) are one of them. Moles are commonly taken to be non-cancerous and they are black or brown growths on the skin. At least 30% of the adults with moles developed them during childhood while in others, they appear as they grow. Moles can be flat and in different sizes and shapes or they may rise above the skin in different sizes.

Moles develop after large amounts of pigment collect in one region rather than spreading evenly throughout the skin. They are not dangerous, though when they appear in an exposed region like the face, hands or arms, they are burdensome. Most moles do not represent cancer except when they appear in an awkward manner or color.
