Moles can be cute little beauty spots, but they can also be a source of great dissatisfaction and embarrassment if they are located in an obvious area on the face. At the same time, if left in some places they can be potentially dangerous. For example moles on the back of the neck might be exposed to sunlight, and potentially to damage from coats and clothes that may have collars. If the mole is burned or damaged in this way, this might result in it becoming cancerous and causing skin cancer – which of course should be avoided.
In some cultures however such as China, moles can be lucky. Here many people will go for ‘face readings’ where they will be told whether their mole is lucky for them or not. If it is, ten they will leave it regardless of its physical appearance. Here many of us feel attached to our moles even if we do somewhat resent them, and might feel upset after removing them – so be sure that you really do want your moles removed before going ahead with the iodine mole removal method. Furthermore you should discuss with your doctor or dermatologist before tampering with your mole in any way, and they might also recommend a different method of mole removal for you.
Iodine Mole Removal
Removing a mole using iodine is of course a simple matter of applying the iodine regularly to the mole in question. Put a small drop directly on the mole and gently rub it in. In some cases the purplish colour of the iodine might bleed into the skin around the mole which can be unattractive in facial moles. To prevent this then, try applying some Vaseline around the mole to create an ‘island’ where you want it applied.
After three to four applications then you see some change (though some people find it has no effect at all). To completely remove the mole can take around 6 months to a year depending on its size, and bear in mind that smaller moles which look like freckles might not be removable using this method.
