  • You need to check with your insurance company to see what is covered through a dermatologist. Make sure you get them checked out once a year!! Moles are something that you should be watching all the time for changes. Call a dermatologist and make an appointment!

  • Alot of the time they develope from exposure the sun. I would wear a moisturizer with spf everyday. Even though you have dark skin doesn't mean its not sun sensitive, you just won't see the affects as quickly because the pigment in the color builds resistance.

    For example, I am 29 years old, driving for 14 years. So the left side of my face and arm I noticed have little "beauty marks" all over, where the other side (not facing the driver's side window) has barely any. They've even conducted studies on teachers where they've stood facing a certain way and one side of theyre face developed moles and wrinkles over 10-20 year period and the other barely.

    Its all about sun protection. Google hyperpigmentation I believe its called.
