Shave Removal

Shave Removal

Shave removal is a technique where we use a razor blade and numb up and shave off the mole (we shave it flat) or any benign lesions such as skin tags.  The shave removal offers the best cosmetic result as long as the mole is raised enough an easy to shave off. This procedure is recommended for benign lesions as it offers the best cosmetic results. No stitches are needed and the scar is barely noticeable.

Shave removal doesn’t prevent the mole or lesion from coming back although it may take years. Sometimes, the mole heals as a dark but flat mole but it can fade away overtime.

Regardless of the procedure, biopsies or shave removals, the tissue removed will be send to a pathology lab to be examine to make sure it is benign.
