Moles come in all shapes, sizes and colors and can make our lives harder. Not only are they unsightly, they can be painful, especially if they rub against your clothing. Since moles don’t just go away, unless you have them removed by a professional, they will be there on your skin forever. While the majority of moles are just harmless protrusions on the skin, some can lead to skin cancer. That is why they should always be assessed by a professional before removal.
On the first visit you’ll receive an evaluation of your mole and if any need to be checked further it will be biopsied after removal or you can be referred to someone who specializes in skin cancer if need be. Fortunately, this is not usually the case. Most are harmless and can be removed safely in one visit.
Now there is a way you can have your moles removed without the need for stitches or sutures. With laser laser mole removal, a laser is used and this targets the pigments in the mole. Since the body absorbs the broken up mole while it’s healing and the laser acts as a sealing mechanism for the blood cells, you don’t have to worry about going back to have stitches removed. In fact, a scab forms and falls off on its own. While you may have to use an antibiotic cream on the area where the mole was removed, you won’t have to keep going to the doctor to have sutures taken out and that saves you time and inconvenience. Basically, the mole dies and falls off. This method is effectively painless and you won’t have to worry about any blood loss.
You may notice the skin becoming darker or reddening around the area where the mole was removed. This is perfectly normal although you will need to wear sunscreen with moisturizer if the area is exposed to the sun. This area should be kept free from irritation while it’s healing as well. A good idea if your mole was on your face is to wear a hat or other protective gear while going outdoors.
While not every mole is a candidate for this procedure, skin tags and flat or small moles are typically perfect for this type of mole removal.
