Moles or melanocytic nevi are pigment cell accumulations that appear on the skin at birth or immediately after (congenital) or later on in life, until the age of 20-25 (acquired). Generally, moles have a benign character, but due to an excessive exposure to the harmful UV radiations, these moles can suffer alterations in the melanocytes they consist of and change their shape, size, colour and texture.

In this situation, it is recommended for you to immediately see a doctor to determine if the moles have already developed a malignant melanoma or if it still is at an early stage. The malignant melanoma is the most easily detectable type of cancer and can be treated completely if discovered in an early stage, before spreading within the body.

The most efficient mole removal method suggested by Renew Skin & Health Clinic is radiosurgery. What is revolutionary about this procedure is that it uses high frequency and low temperature radio waves. The radio waves are the ones doing the cutting, so a scalpel is no longer required.

Radiosurgery is a non-invasive, quick, painless and highly efficient technique for mole removal as well as other skin lesions. It is non-invasive because there is no direct contact or damage to the skin tissues but the radio waves, while passing through the skin, causes the volatilization of the water inside the cells, causing them to disintegrate, action that separates the tissues. This technique is quick because the entire surgical procedure, together with the preparation and numbing of the targeted area lasts between 15 and 20 minutes.

Radiosurgery is painless because the doctor applies a local anesthetic, the electrode generating the radio waves doesn’t heat up so there is no possibility to cause burns and the radio waves penetrate the skin only superficially (0.02 mm). It is very efficient because the cutting of the typical or dysplastic mole/naevus and its cauterization occurs simultaneously, so there’s no bleeding, infection, it doesn’t require sutures, it doesn’t cause damage to the adjacent healthy tissues, the risk of scarring is minimal and the downtime is very rapid.
