Treatment options include moles, skin tags, seborrhoeic keratoses, senile warts and other raised lesions. We can remove moles from almost anywhere in the body: face, armpits, breasts, neck, etc The technique we use is particularly useful for facial growths and fleshy growths called skin tags and dilated capillaries like haemangiomas. Usually, the downtime for the face is shorter than rest of the body due to a better blood supply.
How Does It Work?
We use radio frequency technology that seals the skin as it cuts away the mole or skin tag lesion and similar lesions from any area of the body. This method of mole and skin tag removal minimises bleeding and leaves a temporary superficial scab which falls off in a short time resulting in a smooth skin surface.
What should I do before treatment?
You need to come in for us to check the mole or skin lesions to ensure that these are not cancerous. When required, we send the mole to be examined for histopathological confirmation.
Please note that we only treat patients at the age of 16 and over.
What should I expect after my treatment?
The natural healing process normally takes anywhere between 7 to 10 days. There is rarely any scarring at the treatment site. There may be a slight color difference in the treated skin (compared to the surrounding skin) but this fades over time when the skin’s normal pigment has been restored.
How many treatments will I need?
One treatment is sufficient to remove each lesion.
Sometimes the mole is embedded deeply in the skin. In this case, we take most of the skin tag out and re-do the mole removal when surrounding connective tissue pushes the mole towards the surface of the skin. In most cases, the follow-up treatment does not result in any additional cost to our patient.
