Mole removal in Lancashire: Moles and skin tags are very common and usually quite harmless. The thing is though, they aren’t the most attractive things in the world and can also snag and catch on clothing, which can mean they become sore and prone to bleeding.
What are skin tags?
Skin tags are small, soft, skin-coloured or brown growths which hang off the skin and can look a little like small warts. They often occur where friction happens on the body, such as around the neck, armpits, around the groin or under the breasts. They are harmless but many people find them unsightly and would rather they weren’t there; especially if they crop up in very visible areas such as the face.
What are moles?
Moles are a result of skin cells that grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. These cells are called melanocytes and give the skin it’s natural colour. However, most moles darken when exposed to the sun, during teenage years and during pregnancy. Most moles are completely harmless.
Moles can take on a more sinister roles within the skin, as they can become malignant (cancerous) if over-exposed to UV rays. Therefore, if you have moles it’s important to get to know their size, shape and colour by regularly examining them, and visit your doctor immediately if you ever notice changes in them.

Skin tag and mole removal in Lancashire
If you have moles or skin tags which are affecting your confidence, or even if you just would prefer them not to be there, we can offer a range of treatments for their safe removal, here at CAREFORSKIN in Clitheroe, Lancashire.

- Excision – this involves cutting the mole or skin tag away from the skin, again using a surgical scalpel
