Spot, Mole, and Skin Tag Removal Services
Spots are removed all the time for both medical and cosmetic reasons. The most common procedure to remove moles, skin tags, and other bothersome spots is the shave biopsy. With this method, Dr. Koppula applies a local anesthetic to the surface around the spot of concern before using a fine blade to take the spot flush off the skin. Please see the bottom infographic for a simple illustration.
