Moles removal treatment
Some moles should only be treated by a dermatologist, a skin specialist with extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of moles. Based on the type, colour, and size of the mole, the dermatologist will perform one of the following mole removal treatments:
- Mole Removal with Laser:
If your mole is small, laser surgery can be used to remove it. Light energy is used in laser mole removal to disintegrate the mole’s pigment. As there is minimal chance of leaving scars, this method of removal is an excellent choice for removing a mole off the face. An appointment for laser mole removal should last about 30 minutes. Since this approach doesn’t yield a sample that may be used to screen for melanoma, it should only be used on moles when no biopsy is required.
- Shave excision:
Shave excision is another method used frequently to remove moles. Instead of cutting a mole out, your doctor might be able to remove it by shaving. Under local anaesthetic, moles that emerge from the skin can be shaved off. This is often accomplished with a scalpel and is simple and painless. Your doctor will remove layers of the mole with a knife until it is completely gone. After this kind of mole excision, stitches are typically not required, but the skin may develop a tiny pink patch where the mole formerly was.
- Surgical Excision:
Some moles, particularly larger ones, may require excision. A little stitch in the skin is needed to close the wound following this treatment, which is done under local anaesthesia. Mole excision, also referred to as a full-thickness skin excision, removes undesirable moles all the way down to the subcutaneous fat, the deepest layer, rendering the growth irreversible. There will be a tiny scar left, but it will disappear with time. Unless your job imposes strain on the area that has been stitched, you should be able to go back to work the next day after your treatment. Then, based on the
