The epidermal nevus

  by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou

The epidermal nevus
There are several types of epidermal nevi, distinguished by the type of epidermal cells they involve. The skin in these moles is mainly made up of a type of cell called a keratinocyte.They can be flat or protruding.Their color can be dark or brown.Over time the lesions become thicker and darker in color and look like a group colloquially called “moles”.
Epidermoid nevi often follow a linear arrangement, called Blaschko’s lines.
Other types of epidermal nevi include epidermal cells such as cells from hair follicles, sweat glands, or sebaceous glands. One type of such lesions is the sebaceous nevus.
Treatment – ​​Removal
The removal of epidermoid moles is done surgically or with the use of a laser.


Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
