Ken Morgenstern and Joseph Giacometti offer expert removal of any moles, skin tags, or other growths you may have on your face, including the more challenging areas such as eyelids.

Why Do We Get Moles and Skin Tags?
As we age, it’s normal to notice moles and growths appearing on our face, especially around the eyes and on the eyelids. Moles are growths of skin tissue that appear noticeably darker than the surrounding skin, often due to a concentration of melanin in the surrounding skin cells. Most moles are harmless, but they can appear unsightly, and some may me cancerous.
Allowing our facial surgeons to remove moles from your skin can have several benefits:
- Improves your appearance
- Helps your confidence
- Reduces sensitivity of area
- Reduces potential irritation
- Allows for skin cancer biopsy
Skin tags are pieces of skin that form a sort of “stem” and grow off the surface of your skin. There is little understanding of why they to this, but they do not seem to be associated with any diseases or other conditions. Skin tags may be removed in order to improve your appearance and self-esteem.
The Skin Tag and Mole Removal Process
There are several different ways doctors remove the moles, but the most efficient way is to burn them off. Your doctor applies a numbing anesthetic to the mole, and then scrapes it off with an electrical wire that burns the mole or skin tag away without causing any bleeding or too much physical pain.
Getting moles or skin tags burned off:
- Leaves no scar or mark
- Causes little to no pain
- Prevents them from growing back
- Is superior to home remedies
- Lowers infection risk
Of course, if the moles in question are on your face, it becomes very important that you trust your surgeon to perform the removal well. This makes the certified oculo-facial surgeons at the Morgenstern Center an excellent choice. Our doctors have many years of experience removing moles and skin tags from the face, and we can give you excellent results. Our Suite 202 Spa also offers a variety of skincare products.
