Moles are growths on the skin that are usually brown or black. They can appear alone or in groups virtually anywhere on the body. They occur when the pigmented cells in your skin grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. The cells make the pigment that gives you your skin color and are called melanocytes. There are a few types of moles, congenital nevi and dysplastic nevi both being likely to develop into melanoma when exposed to various harmful factors and so, you should have them checked, when suspicious, by a qualified dermatologist.

Laser therapy has recently become very popular and it implies a laser beam being directed onto the skin in order to eradicate a mole or other skin lesions. While it is a quick, safe and practically painless procedure, taking little time and requiring no hospitalization, it does have its disadvantages. First of all, its efficiency is not 100% proven. Due to this, there are chances that your moles could grow back and in order to prevent this inconvenience, the laser specialist may have to go deeper into the mole, this causing skin marks or permanent scars that can be undesirable and unaesthetic.

Furthermore, the time needed for your skin to fully recover, even if the procedure itself is quick, consists in the formation of a scab on the top layer of the skin and no disturbance must come to it at all. This is imperative as to not develop skin scars, and you should also consider taking another precaution with sun exposure. It is advised that you do not expose the treated area for very long periods of time to the sun because, again, it can lead to scarring.

Moreover the laser mole removal procedure itself is quite expensive, and not many insurance policies covers it, and due to its efficiency issue and the possibility of mole recurrence it is possible that you might have to undergo this procedure again. This being said you have other options you can consider in order to have your moles removed and Renew Skin & Health Clinic is at your disposal with safe and highly effective alternatives, where the laser therapy fails.

Another procedure you could undergo is radiosurgery. Radiosurgery involves the use of an electrode through which an ultra-high frequency audio wave current is sent in order to evaporate the water within the cells causing them to breakdown from the inside. The adjacent tissues are not damaged due to the use of low temperatures. Radiosurgery for mole removal is a painless and quick procedure that instantly cauterizes the tissue and causes minimal to no bleeding whatsoever. It also prevents future infections and enhances the healing process. It doesn’t require downtime or hospitalization because a session takes up to 15-20 minutes and the mole removal procedure with radiosurgery is non-surgical and minimally invasive, so you can resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure.
