What happens if you pick moles?


Moles, those little spots that dot our skin, are often harmless. However, when it comes to these seemingly innocuous marks, it’s essential to tread carefully.

Welcome to an in-depth exploration of what happens when someone picks their mole, presented by PURE Holistic Beauty, Southampton’s trusted blemish removal experts and finalists at the esteemed 2024 English Hair and Beauty Awards.


Understanding Moles: Origins and Causes


Moles, scientifically termed nevi, are clusters of pigmented cells that can appear anywhere on the body. While many moles are congenital, others develop over time due to factors such as sun exposure, hormonal changes, or genetics.

These pigmented patches vary in size, shape, and colour, ranging from flat and brown to raised and dark.


The Temptation to Pick: A Dangerous Decision


In the pursuit of flawless skin, the temptation to pick at imperfections like moles can be overwhelming. However, succumbing to this urge can have dire consequences.

When someone picks at a mole, they risk causing trauma to the skin, leading to bleeding, inflammation, and potential infection. Moreover, disturbing a mole may exacerbate any underlying abnormalities and hinder accurate diagnosis by medical professionals.


The Dangers Unveiled: Potential Complications


Picking at a mole isn’t merely a matter of aesthetics; it’s a health hazard. By disrupting the mole’s integrity, individuals expose themselves to various risks, including:

  • Infection: Breaking the skin barrier invites bacteria, increasing the likelihood of infection.
  • Bleeding: Moles contain blood vessels, and picking can result in profuse bleeding, requiring medical attention to control.
  • Inflammation: Aggravating the mole can trigger an inflammatory response, causing pain, redness, and swelling.
  • Misdiagnosis: Altering the appearance of a mole through picking can obscure its true nature, making it challenging for healthcare professionals to accurately assess and diagnose potential abnormalities.


The Importance of Professional Intervention


In the event of mole disturbance or uncertainty regarding a mole’s characteristics, seeking medical attention is paramount. Dermatologists or a GP possess the expertise to evaluate moles, distinguishing between benign nevi and potentially malignant lesions.

Furthermore, specialised clinics like PURE Holistic Beauty, Southampton, offer mole removal services performed by skilled professionals in a safe and controlled environment.

“I visited Pure to have electrolysis treatment on a mole on my forehead and one on my eyebrow. Jacqui was very professional and put me at ease from the moment I walked in with her friendly and calm nature. The treatment was soon completed, lots of aftercare advice given before I left. I revisted 5 weeks later for a follow up appointment. Wow! I’m sure if Jacqui hadn’t have taken before photos, she would have forgotten where the moles were in the first place. An amazing result. Thank you so much!!”
