Skin Imperfections

The Skin Institute

Moles and other birthmarks are benign pigmented spots or patches of skin that range in color from tan, brown and black (moles) to red, pink or purple (vascular lesions, such as strawberry hemangiomas or port wine stains). Though most birthmarks are harmless, some can develop into cancer or become increasingly troublesome over time. The Skin Institute can help you determine the safety of a mole or birthmark, or help you with cosmetic removal as well.
