One person’s mole is another person’s “beauty mark,” just ask Cindy Crawford! While most moles are benign, some may not be and determining which can be stressful and confusing.
At Eos Rejuvenation, we recommend that you ask yourself the “ABCDE” questions when examining a mole:
- Asymmetry: is the mole look symmetric?
- Borders: do the borders have smooth, regular edges or irregular edges?
- Color: do you see more than one color in the mole
- Diameter: is it larger than 6mm in size
- Evolution: is it changing over time, getting bigger, more raised?
If you answer “yes” to any of the above, you should have your mole checked out by a doctor as soon as possible.
Mole removal is a relatively simple procedure that can be performed in the office with some local anesthesia. Dr. Nima meticulously removes the mole so as to either leave no scar, or leaving a very faint line that is hidden well within a natural crease in the skin. Stitches are used to close the incision which are usually removed within 5-7 days. You will experience little to no discomfort after the procedure, with tylenol being adequate to address any mild pain.
Once removed, we will send the specimen to a lab to make sure that all is well. Depending on your results, we may refer you to a dermatologist for regular skin checks. Remember, the earlier you catch any dangerous skin lesions, the better the prognosis and the easier it is to deal with.
The cost of a mole removal can usually be covered through insurance.

“Dr. Shemirani is an amazing facial cosmetic surgeon. From the moment you meet him you know that you are in great hands.
I recently visited his office for a couple of skin lesions that I had. Over the years, I had them lasered, shaved, injected, etc… by a couple of different dermatologists. They always came back. I figured I would just live with them. However, they really bothered me so I then began to think that there must be a doctor out there that could help me. After doing some research I decided to give Dr. Shemirani’s office a call to make an appointment. I spoke with his assistant Neda who was very nice and was able to fit me in right away.
I came in for my appointment and Dr. Shemirani saw me right on time. This was very refreshing. He respects you and your time. He spent as much time with me as was necessary. He wanted to make sure that I understood all my options and expectations. I knew he could help me and decided right then and there I was going to have the procedure done.
So here I am almost three weeks after having the procedure and I couldn’t be more happy with the results. The lesions are completely gone. Dr. Shemirani was able to do what no other physician was able to accomplish with the care and compassion that is very hard to find in todays “rush rush” society.
If you are thinking of having any facial cosmetic surgery Dr. Shemirani is the doctor for you. He really cares about his patients and I would highly recommend him. Definitely the best.” – S.S. (Yelp)View More Testimonials
