WHAT DOES THE MOLE REMOVAL PROCEDURE ENTAIL?
A typical mole has two parts: a raised surface that we see when we look at it, and a deeper section that is below the skin. Generally speaking, the raised portion is the only part that needs to be treated in order for a successful removal. This makes the safe removal of a mole significantly easier, as there is no surgery or sutures necessary.
First, the mole is injected with a numbing agent to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure. After washing with a sterile solution, the mole is removed using a radio-frequency device. This tool allows us to perfectly remove the mole. After the procedure, we will cover the site with a Band-Aid and ointment. Keeping the site covered will prevent scabs from forming and promote quicker healing.
If the location of your mole has hair, this process will not remove the hair because the follicles are located at a deeper level. Should you choose, the hair can be removed using a laser or electrolysis, but can also be removed at the time of the initial treatment.
