How can you remove or get rid of skin moles and growths in Centreville, VA?

get rid of skin moles and growths in Centreville

At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, Inc., patients in Centreville, VA are often in search of a professional who knows how to remove or get rid of skin tags, growths, and moles. The team at our practice has years of combined experience in providing solutions for the skin, hair, nails, and body, including the removal of moles and growths.

Methods of removal

In most cases, the method of skin mole removal will be achieved with traditional excision. However, if the mole has been biopsied and shows skin cancer, patients can ask their doctor about Mohs micrographic surgery. This is a treatment that removes skin cancer in an effective manner, greatly reducing the chance of reoccurrence.

What can be removed in a dermatologist’s office?

  • Skin tags
  • Moles
  • Warts
  • Growths

How does excision work?

The doctor starts with a full examination and evaluation of the skin growth the patient wishes to remove. Then, the methods of removal are discussed. If the mole is a concern for skin cancer, it may be biopsied first before moving on. Once patients choose to have traditional excision, the area being treated is numbed with local anesthetic. The doctor then uses precision tools to remove the growth. Larger growths may require sutures, but must heal on their own. Aftercare instructions may be given to patients when they leave the office, and a follow-up can be done later if the dermatologist feels it is necessary. The entire process is done quickly and easily right in our dermatology practice without the need to visit a hospital or work with another industry professional.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
