Most of us are familiar with red moles on various parts of our body. Everyone from the age of 20 to 70 has at least one mole on their body. The National Institute of Health defines a Cherry Angioma or red mole as a benign (non-cancerous) growth on the skin, which is made up of blood vessels. The mole gets its name from the growth’s bright cherry-red appearance. They are small, from the size of a pinhead to about a quarter of an inch. Red moles may be smooth or stick out from the skin. While the actual cause of these skin growths is unknown, research suggests that they are genetic and tend to increase in number as the body ages.

There are many different remedies and solutions to treat these moles but the best method yet is the laser removal procedure. Many different home remedies have believed to treat red moles. Among those remedies, the most popular ones are applying apple cider vinegar, iodine, and tree tea oil. However, these home remedies take months and sometimes years to work and don’t achieve the same result that surgical or laser removal achieves. Most of the times, the mole reappears after the treatment stops. Before the advent of laser mole removal, one of the most popular methods of removing red moles was through surgery. In the surgical procedure, the doctor cuts the mole out of the skin and stitches up the resulting hole. This method can be extremely painful and it usually leaves a scar, which defeats the purpose of removing the mole.

Even though red moles don’t pose any health risks, there are many reasons why a lot of people want to get rid of them permanently. Everyone wants to have healthy and radiant skin, as it helps to build a beautiful image. After all, the first impression is the last impression. Therefore it is not surprising that the emergence of surface formations of different severity such as moles, warts or papilloma can harm the image and self-confidence and bring a feeling of discomfort and insecurity.

Nowadays, thanks to laser removal such abnormal growths can be cleared off from the skin for good. It is better to remove moles that are stranger looking, bigger or not regular in shape and color since they have the potential of turning into malignant moles. It is always better to be safe than sorry. Another reason to remove red moles using a laser is that those moles that are not flat can get bruised easily. It can happen while scratching them by mistake when sleeping. It cannot only hurt, but it can be dangerous as well. Lastly, of course, there is the aesthetics. The skin on the face, neck, and back looks cleaner without moles. Many of us with moles on our faces or necks have had people stare at them while talking to us. It makes you want to put your hand on the face or neck all the time subconsciously to hide the mole. It can be quite emotionally overwhelming.
