Laser Mole Removal Treatment in Indianapolis, IN
Moles are small marks that appear in various shapes and sizes on the skin. Moles are typically seen on the face, arms, chests, shoulders, and legs as these are the areas of the body that are most exposed to the sun. Moles can also be present at birth. No two moles are alike. While most are benign (non-cancerous) there are some moles that may be suspicious and should be examined and diagnosed to rule out skin cancer.
For those patients who desire to remove moles for cosmetic reasons, Dr. Greg Chernoff has been on the forefront of advanced laser technology that has remained the gold standard for the removal of wrinkles, moles, skin cysts, lumps and bumps, and for facial skin rejuvenation.

The procedure is very quick and is done under a small amount of local anesthetic. Multiple moles can be treated at the same appointment.

Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.
What Are Cancerous Moles?
While the majority of moles are benign, there are some features you can look for to determine whether yours warrants further assessment. These features are known as the ABCDEs of melanoma:
- Asymmetry – one half of the mole is not like the other half
- Border – the mole is irregularly shaped with poorly defined borders
- Color – colors of the mole vary from one area to the next, such as shades of tan, brown or black, or areas of white, red, or blue
- Diameter – the size of the mole is important, as suspicious moles are usually larger
- Evolving – moles that change size, shape or color over time
Dr. Greg Chernoff has extensive experience in dealing with all types of skin conditions and will make a proper assessment of your mole prior to removing it. If he feels it is warranted, he will send a sample of the tissue for a biopsy to verify that the mole is benign.
