Mole Removal Treatments
Most of us have moles on our skin, and the average adult has between 10 and 40. While the majority of these are unnoticeable, there are times when they can be unsightly or painful.
If a mole is making you feel self-conscious or causing discomfort, you might be considering having it removed. The good news is that this is surprisingly affordable, painless and risk-free. The two main methods used are:
This is carried out under local anaesthetic. The mole is shaved, using a scalpel, until it is level with the skin. After shaving, the area is cauterized to stop bleeding, and an antibiotic cream is applied to prevent infection. The whole process normally takes a few minutes, and the skin will usually heal in 7 to 10 days.
This is commonly used on flat moles that are flat, or where there are potential health issues. Firstly, a local anaesthetic is applied. Then, with a scalpel, the mole is removed along with a small surrounding area of skin. Finally, the opening is stitched back together. The whole treatment takes about 20 minutes, from start to finish.
The experts at Spire Aesthetics can recommend which treatment is appropriate for your particular needs, and guide you through the whole process.
Both methods leave a small scar, which is hardly noticeable. However, as part of our aftercare service, we will advise you on oils and creams that can be used to reduce the scarring even further.
While most moles are harmless, some can be indicative of more serious health issues. For your peace of mind, it is standard practice to send a removed mole to a laboratory to be checked for cancer. It is important to note that removing a cancerous mole does not cause cancer to spread.
