Mole Removal Franklin

You don’t want to remove a mole only to find another unwanted condition, a scar, has replaced it. To assure you won’t be back at the doctor’s for another procedure, turn to board certified surgeon, Dr. Steven Bengelsdorf, for all your mole removal needs.

A member of the American College of Surgeons, American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and American Society for Laser Medicine, Dr. Bengelsdorf has the training, experience, and technologies to skillfully perform a range of mole removal and repair techniques.

Be it surgical excision or minimally-invasive procedures; such as laser mole removal, Franklin Skin & Laser has the depth and breadth of experience to comfortably, safely, and effectively remove unwanted moles. You get the results you were looking for, a smooth and unblemished surface, and not scarring.

While many medical practitioners can in theory remove your moles, general physicians are not equipped with specialized knowledge of the skin and conditions affecting the skin. Generally, while dermatologists are trained in cosmetic procedures, Dr. Bengelsdorf has specialized training in surgical and cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures.

Taken together, Franklin Skin & Laser offers a combination of advanced dermatological and surgical expertise unmatched in the Franklin, TN area. As with other conditions, proper treatment depends on proper diagnosis and Dr. Bengelsdorf’s extensive medical training assures the true nature of your bumps and spots is accurately identified. Moles in particular resemble a number of other conditions, including:

  • Seborrheic keratosis, a noncancerous growth
  • Acrochordon or skin tags
  • Some types of melanoma skin cancers

The vast majority of moles are harmless. Rarely, they become cancerous. Red flags for melanomas include changes to moles; such as sudden itching, bleeding, and irregularly-bordered or multi-colored moles. After accurately determining the nature of your brown and/or raised spot, Dr. Bengelsdorf will recommend an effective treatment.

Dr. Bengelsdorf offers a range of medical-grade lasers to remove moles and treat other conditions. Some moles may be shaved off, while larger spots may require surgical removal. Stitches are not always required; but should they be needed, Dr. Bengelsdorf’s surgical expertise assures the site is repaired in a cosmetically pleasing manner.

Turning to a Cosmetic Surgeon for Mole Removal in Franklin, TN is a wise choice taking into account the long-term consequences of eliminating a bothersome, uncomfortable, or annoying mole. Turning to Franklin Skin & Laser is a preferred choice among other surgical specialists and cosmetic dermatologists, due in part to the breadth of options for treatment.
