Does the laser mole removal treatment imply further post-procedural treatments?
The most common mole removal procedure is the one which involves laser therapy. The procedure is fast, painless, virtually scarless, and in-office. For instance, at Renew Skin and Health Clinic, our specialists may perform the procedure right after the consultation, because, despite the fact that the laser mole removal treatment is a non-invasive method, it is still a medical procedure and a consultation together with a medical history check are a must prior to the mole removal treatment.
What you should know about the laser mole removal treatment is the fact that there may be some side-effects which may include swelling, tenderness, depigmentation, skin burns and sometimes minimal bleeding. Although this may seem a bit of a set-back to the laser mole removal procedure, these side-effects are rare, and usually appear if the procedure has been performed incorrectly. Besides the side-effects, our Renew Skin & Health Clinic GP or private dermatologist will also tell you what you should do after the procedure. First of all, you should know that straight after the laser mole removal treatment the area may appear redder or darker and for approximately two weeks, your mole will form a scab, which should be left to peel off on its own, preventing in this way potential scars from appearing. Moreover, the dermatologist will also recommend you to use sunscreen after the procedure for approximately six weeks and avoid or limit sun exposure to the treated area. All the information about the laser mole removal treatment will be provided to you during the consultation at Renew Skin & Health Clinic.
