Moles are a common skin problem among men and women. These dark skin growths, also called naevus, appear on the skin when melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) start growing in groups. They vary in color, size, and number and may occur at birth or afterward. Benign moles are not a matter of concern health-wise, but some people consider them a cosmetic concern. Such people can benefit from benign mole removal in Dubai and achieve flawless skin.

Types of Moles
The most common types of benign moles are:
- Dermal Melanocytic Nevi
- Junctional Melanocytic Nevi
- Compound Melanocytic Nevi
The primary cause of moles is melanocytes – cells made of a pigment called melanin. Melanin is essential for giving a natural color to the skin and hair and protecting the body from ultraviolet rays.
Besides excessive melanocytes, moles also develop due to excessive sun exposure. Generally, dark skin is more likely to develop moles when exposed to the sun because it has more melanin. Moles can also be congenital and occur anytime throughout the lifetime on any area of the face and body.
You are a suitable candidate for mole removal treatment in Dubai if you want to:
- Get rid of benign moles or lesions
- Have flawless skin
- Eliminate the risk of cancerous moles
- Improve confidence and self-esteem
Benign moles are a common skin issue worldwide, and several treatments are available to remove them. At Euromed Clinic Center, we use the following techniques for benign mole removal in Dubai:
As the name suggests, excision involves cutting the mole using a surgical blade. This technique works for raised moles and not for flat moles. The procedure is performed in a dermatologist’s office, who will start by applying anesthesia to minimize discomfort. After numbing the treatment area, they will use sharp surgical scissors or scalpel to cut the mole. If the mole has cells under the skin, the dermatologist will also remove them and stitch the skin. Patients will be left with a scar that fades over time.
In cryotherapy, liquid nitrogen is used for freezing the mole. Once it freezes, it will form a blister and later fall off. This procedure is suitable for non-cancerous moles that have not grown under the skin.
The most popular technique for removing a benign mole is laser treatment. The dermatologist applies laser beams on the mole that destructs it. This treatment is effective but takes 2-3 sessions to remove a mole altogether.
Patients may have to follow some aftercare guidelines after mole removal treatment. Although these guidelines vary from patient to patient, some general instructions are as follows:
- Avoid touching, rubbing, or picking at the treatment site.
- Take prescribed medication and contact the doctor in case of complications.
- Keep the skin hydrated and germ-free.
- Use cold compresses if the skin is swollen after the procedure.
Benign mole removal in Dubai has several benefits, such as:
- This treatment makes the skin flawless by removing moles.
- It improves body image and boosts confidence.
- It eliminates the risk of cancerous moles.
- The treatment offers excellent cosmetic results.
- It is a safe and effective treatment.
Cost of Benign Mole Removal
The cost of benign mole removal varies from patient to patient, depending on a number of factors such as:
- Skin condition
- Number of moles
- Treatment technique
- Number of sessions
- Dermatologist’s expertise
- Clinic’s location
Since the final price depends on several factors, it is not possible to determine the exact treatment cost. If you want to know the actual treatment cost in your case, please consult an expert at our clinic.
