Moles are common skin lesions which can be present from birth but which can also appear later on in life. These skin lesions can be flat or raised, from pink to dark-brown to black, and can appear all over your body, especially on you face, back and extremities. Many people want to have them removed because of cosmetic reasons, but there is also an increasing incidence in skin cancer due to the mole’s exposure to different harmful factors, and whether you want to have them removed or not, a specialized consultation is required.

At Renew Skin and Health Clinic, our specialists perform the procedure only after a specialized consultation which will also involve a medical history check. The laser mole removal procedure is fast, painless and scarless, and it is performed under a local anesthetic so that you won’t feel any discomfort, and in 15-30 minutes you will get rid of those unwanted moles. This is an in-office procedure which allows you to return to your normal routine straight afterwards, requiring no downtime or hospitalization.

Despite the fact that laser mole removal is a non-invasive procedure, there is still the risk of side-effects, but besides these, the laser mole removal is not usually suitable or recommended for very large or suspected cancerous moles. In what concerns the side-effects of laser mole removal, immediate ones may include swelling, redness and pain. Afterwards, there may be minimal scarring, bleeding and sometimes depigmentation. Moreover, another major risk of this type of procedure, just like with any others, is infection.

These complications do not usually occur if the laser mole removal procedure is appropriately performed by specialized personnel. At Renew Skin and Clinic, our specialists take great care in our patients and, if you do not want to undergo the laser mole removal treatment, our specialist can also recommend you another type of treatment.

The other recommended type of mole removal procedure is Radiosurgery which has less side-effects than the laser mole removal treatment, due to the fact that it uses a high frequency alternate current at a low temperature, without heating the treated area and causing thus less adjacent tissue damage.
