Looking for a mole removal specialist?
You need a Dermatologist!
Moles can be flat or raised but more seriously they can be cancerous. Therefore mole removal laser despite its popularity is often a bad idea since you can never see the cells of the mole removed under the microscope; hence you are at risk for developing a skin cancer by improper mole removal. Therefore any mole removal specialist will advocate against the use of a mole removal laser and recommend mole removal surgery.
Mole removal laser ads do not discolor the limitation to this treatment. Lasers are not usually the method of choice for most deep moles because the laser light doesn’t penetrate deeply enough. Therefore, recurrence of a mole after laser treatment can be “splotchy” and unattractive; furthermore, because the tissue is destroyed, and never evaluated under the microscope, no information exists as to the health of those cells. For these reasons choose a mole removal specialist that favors mole removal surgery over lasers.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
