Moles are growths on the skin that are usually brown or black, they can appear anywhere on the skin, alone or in groups. Moles occur when cells in the skin grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. These cells are called melanocytes, and they make the pigment that gives you your skin color. There are a few types of moles such as: congenital nevi and dysplastic nevi that are more likely to develop into melanoma and so you should have them checked, Renew Skin & Health Clinic putting at your disposal private dermatologist consultations.
Laser mole removal involves directed light beams to remove errant skin deformities. And in order to undergo such a procedure, if it’s the case, your doctor will first perform a biopsy of the mole, to ensure that it doesn’t contain cancer cells. The possible side effect that can occur after having the laser mole removal treatment is permanent scarring. Any cosmetic procedure that removes a layer of skin carries the risk of leaving a scar and typically occurs when a secondary condition is present, such as infection, poor healing capabilities of the patient’s skin or improper wound care. Although most scars respond to treatment from injections or topical creams, some may be permanent, requiring additional cosmetic work. Needless to say that the benefits of having a mole removed are worth the risks of a small scar. Think about how unaesthetic some of the moles look or if they appear on the face or under the arms, when they can interrupt a smooth shaving, and of course cause an uncomfortable irritation of the skin if they rub against clothes.
Another mole removal procedure you can ponder upon is radiosurgery. It involves the use of an electrode through which an ultra-high frequency radio wave current is sent in order to evaporate the water within the cells and cause them to breakdown from within. No adjacent tissues are damaged due to the use of low temperatures. Radiosurgery for mole removal is a painless and quick procedure that instantly cauterizes the tissue and there will be minimal to no bleeding whatsoever during the treatment. It also prevents future infections and enhances the healing process. Radiosurgery does not require any downtime or hospitalization because a session takes up to 15-20 minutes, is non-surgical and minimally invasive so you can leave the clinic immediately after the procedure to resume your daily activities.
