Our Connecticut mole removal, either for cosmetic reasons or when medically necessary, may result in a scar. However, the resulting scar may completely disappear on its own. This depends on your age, general skin condition, history of abnormal scarring (keloids), the size of the mole, the type of removal performed, and the location of the mole. If scarring is a concern, products specially designed for minimizing scarring may be recommended.
Most mole removal sites will require little to no care. You should keep the area clean and follow up with your doctor if necessary. When stitches are required, these can be the type that will dissolve on their own or may require an additional appointment to remove them. The majority of removal areas will heal within two to three weeks. However, if this area is exposed to unprotected sunlight, it may tend to burn more easily. To ensure protection, you should use a recommended sunscreen.
