Surgical Mole and Skin Lesion Removal
Moles and skin lesions can be unsightly especially when on exposed parts of our body often affecting self confidence and self esteem , however they can now be easily be removed with minimal risk of scarring using a method known as cautery which literally vaporise the cells of the mole but leaves the healthy skin cells below with little or no tissue damage to allow very quick healing process and minimal risk of any scarring. It is ideal for any raised lesion on the skin, especially the face.
Minimal risk of scarring
All patients initially have a consultation and diagnosis of the skin lesion to exclude cancerous lesions. Treatment usually only takes 20- 30 minutes. The mole removal procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic and is virtually pain free. A small dressing may be applied for a few days and most people can return to work the same day.
During the first week the there will be a small scab at the site of the excision, which quickly progresses to healthy new pink/red skin. Within the first few months this new skin quickly takes on the pigmentation of the surrounding skin making it virtually impossible to see where the mole or skin lesion was before treatment.
