When you were young, that tiny black spot on your face didn’t seem to be a bother. Now that you’ve aged, you now see that the tiny black mole is no longer tiny. You’ve arrived at an age where self-consciousness is normal. You long for perfection and you want to remove it, quick.
Approximately one or two out of 100 folks are born with moles. Moles are dark pigments that can either be present at birth or show up through time. It is shown that if a person with a small mole is constantly in sunlight, that the mole will eventually become darker and larger.
Mole removal is very common these days. Look, even Madonna had her mole removed why not you!
Well, let me tell you this… there are more alternatives to mole removal than you may have known. We have some information about surgery and laser therapy as methods for mole removal, but like any other treatment options there can be unwanted outcomes to these medical practices. Infection and scarring are common risks to surgery while recurrence of moles are common in laser mole removal therapy because it does not penetrate deep into the skin.
I will divide the other solutions for mole removal into two groups: natural methods and Over-The-Counter (OTC) ointments.
Have you considered that there may be such a thing as natural mole removal solutions? There are still too many people out there who are unfamiliar with these alternatives. Onion, Garlic, Pineapple, Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon are only a few of the natural remedies being used for mole removal.
Here are a few reasons why natural home alternatives are a wise choice as well. First, it is inexpensive. Second, you can do it on your schedule. Third, the risks are lower.
However, using the natural methods to remove moles may not be as quick compared to surgery.
If you are a person who would rather procure a solution than create it, OTC creams are a good option.
One single application of this type of cream is usually plenty for a mole to be gone in a couple of days. These creams are usually rich in salicylic acid and some of them contain bloodroot from plants which is also effective.
I would also like to add a little information about the use of TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) in mole removal. TCA is also used to get rid of tattoos and it is one of the common acids for chemical peels. While it can be effective in mole removal it may cause a skin discoloration where it is applied.
So there we are! After reading this article, have you come to a certain conclusion?
