Moles or melanocytic nevi represent hyper-pigmented, flat or dome-shaped skin areas that can appear at birth or later on during one’s lifetime. Although most moles are harmless, there are situations when you would like to get rid of them for cosmetic reasons.

In some situations, moles removal is necessary because there is a risk for them to suffer alterations in their cellular structure and become malignant (cancerous) or simply because they bother or incommode you: get caught in clothes, or if they appear on the scalp they can get caught while brushing the hair and if they appear on the face, they may create an unaesthetic appearance.

At Renew Skin & Health Clinic, our specialists offer you a series of mole removal treatments and methods that are inconvenient from a cosmetic point of view so that you can get rid of these nuisances fast and efficiently. If after a medical examination, certain moles are considered to be suspicious having an altered cellular structure, mole removal is performed through excision and the tissue sample is further sent to a lab for pathological analysis in order to establish the nature of those pigmentary lesions. The surgeons performing such procedures have a vast experience in the field so the stitches they make present a minimal risk of scarring.

But not all atypical moles have a malignant potential, so, as we have previously mentioned, mole removal may be necessary for purely cosmetic reasons.
If they bother you when dressing, shaving or combing moles should be removed so as not to harm them and risk a possible infection or alteration. Although the moles on the face can sometimes be considered beauty marks, in some cases their size, color or texture can cause an unpleasant esthetic appearance and thus, the patient may want their moles removed. The mole removal procedure proposed by Renew Skin & Health Clinic is radiosurgery as it is considered fast, efficient and with a minimal scarring risk.

Radiosurgery uses high frequency and low temperature radio waves that act upon the water inside the moles’ pigment cells. In this way, the cells are vaporized and the mole is removed from the skin, without the radio waves affecting the adjacent skin tissues. The moles can then be sent for further testing to ensure that it didn’t develop a malignant character. The procedure lasts between 15 and 20 minutes, doesn’t normally require anesthesia, is non-invasive and you will be able to immediately resume your daily activities. If the patient wishes, the specialist may apply an anesthetic to avoid any type of discomfort. The resulted scars are almost invisible and the mole heals in a few days leaving little trace of its existence.

If you’re dealing with unaesthetic moles, Renew Skin & Health Clinic can offer you the perfect solution. We dispose of an entire team of specialists, dermatologists, plastic surgeons and the latest technology, all this helping you achieve the desired optimum results.
