Moles can be described as pigmented blemishes that appears on the face or body. They can vary in size, shape and colour. Some moles are flat, while others can have a raised appearance. The majority of moles are usually harmless, however if you notice a change in colour or shape, or if the mole begin to irritate you, then it should be checked by a doctor as these symptoms could be signs of something more serious.
Highly visible moles on the body or face can often lead to loss of confidence or embarrassment for certain individuals. Moles that restrict movement, or which are overly large, can sometimes result in pain and distress.
At your consultation, the lesion will be carefully examined by our Specialist doctors who will advise the best method of removal. You should inform the doctor if there is any recent change in colour, size, surface and shape of the lesions.
Prior to the treatment : Topical or local anaesthetic will be administered
Shave excision – The procedure involves using a dermablade to remove the mole parallel to the surface of the skin. This leaves a small superficial wound which may need cauterisation to stop any bleeding and tidy the wound. The whole procedure takes about 20 minutes. No stitches are needed and healing takes about 1 to 2 weeks. This technique is used mainly for mole and skin tag removal
Elliptical excision – a deep excision that removes the mole more completely. The resulting wound requires stitches which can be either dissolvable or non-dissolvable depending on the site of removal. The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes. Generally, it is a method to remove deep moles and Cysts
- Q. Is the treatment painful?
Apart from the local anaesthetic injection which you may feel a little prick and sting at the beginning of the treatment for a second to numb the area, you should not feel any discomfort at all afterwards. However, when the treatment finishes and anaesthetic effect wears off, slight discomfort may be experienced. Normally patients are not required to take any pain killers
