I Have Sun Induced Flat Moles All over my Legs. Can They Be Removed?

I have sun induced moles on my legs. My dermatologist is not intrested in my cosmetic concerns at all. I hate my legs and refuse to where dresses or shorts. I was very tan up until last year...... With the fading of my tan all was revealed. I thought that they were freckles.... Flat on my skin brown in color. Is there anything that I can do to have them removed?

Mole removal

I would recommend that you see a dermatologist for your concerns.  First, it's necessary to know whether these lesions are moles or whether they are seborrheic keratosis, or even sun spots.  This will be able to dictate treatment.

Removing flat moles on legs

I would speak with a dermatologist who takes your concerns seriously. Careful shave excisions may work well for you, and in some cases, gentle liquid nitrogen or laser are useful options as well. Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
