Moles and Skin Lesions

Kaysville, UT

Moles are typically skin growths that are brown or black and round or oval in shape. Moles can appear anywhere on the skin and can be rough or smooth, flat or raised, and occur alone or in groups. Moles can be a beautiful part of what makes you uniquely you!

The average adult actually has between 10 and 40 moles. Most moles are harmless, but a change in size, shape, color or texture could be a sign that certain cells in the body may be changing into a precancerous or cancerous condition. So suspicious moles should always be checked out by a physician. At Silkey Skin MD, Dr. Silkey offers the latest technologies in skin cancer screening and removal.

Lesions, on the other hand, are very rarely cancerous. However their red and often raised appearance can be a source of self-consciousness. Some “primary” skin lesions are present since birth. Others, such as acne, boils, warts, shingles, etc. are the result of viral or bacterial infection on or in the skin. At Silkey Skin MD, Dr. Silkey offers the most advanced treatments for skin lesions, including laser skin lesion removal with Alma IPL (Dye-VL), Erbium, and Clearlift (Harmony XL) technology.
