WHAT IS MOLE REMOVAL?

If you have an unwanted mole, laser mole removal is a very simple and effective procedure, be it for cosmetic mole removal or irregularities in the mole itself. The removal is a very simple operation, and one that is conducted on an out-patient basis, without any formal surgery, using only topical anesthetic. 

 
 
 

WHO IS A MOLE REMOVAL CANDIDATE?

Mole removal procedures are extremely safe and effective, which means that nearly everyone is eligible. Our medical staff can ensure that all of your questions will be answered, and that your procedure is tailored to your needs and concerns. 

 
 
 

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. 

 
 
 

WHAT IS THE MOLE REMOVAL RECOVERY PERIOD?

There is no downtime after mole removal, only some minor healing for the removal site. So long as you keep the wound protected, you are safe to return to daily activities and exercise. 

 
 
 

MOLE REMOVAL RESULTS:

Once the site of your mole removal has completely healed, you can expect the spot to be clear and free of any sign of your mole—in fact, it will appear as though a mole was never there to begin with. It is important to maintain proper care of your wound as it heals, to ensure that there is minimal or no scarring.
