Moles are growths on the skin that usually appear alone or in groups. They occur when the cells in your skin grow in a cluster instead of being spread throughout the skin. There are three main types of moles or pigmentary nevi: normal or typical, irregular and cancerous. First of all typical moles or pigmentary nevi are generally benign formations, while irregular moles or dysplastic nevi are usually the ones that create health issues along with the atypical moles which in their turn are composed of 3 subcategories: halo nevi, blue nevi and spitz nevi. Moreover, the cancerous moles, which are also called melanomas, can be composed of both typical and atypical moles.

There are multiple forms of treatments and procedures you can undergo in order to rid yourself of the unwanted typical or cancerous moles, which include laser therapy, radiosurgery, electrocautery or cryotherapy. One of the recommended procedures is laser surgery, which is mostly applied for the typical dark moles’ removal. At first you will need to make an appointment with a private dermatologist for a skin condition examination, after which a possible biopsy will be performed to determine whether the mole is cancerous or not (if this looks suspicious at a first examination). Laser therapy involves multiple beams of light directed towards the skin deformity. The laser has a rather superficial effect and is non-invasive. Furthermore, the laser beam completely destroys the pigmentary cells that absorb the light.

While the laser mole removal treatment is a quick, safe and practically painless procedure, taking little time and requiring no hospitalization, it does have its disadvantages, such as minimal scarring or depigmentation of the treated area. The scars can be small or hardly visible, but larger moles will also leave larger scars. Scarring is usually more obvious on darker skin, in which case the surgeon may recommend the use of a silicone based substance to improve the final cosmetic result.

Radiosurgery is another recommended treatment for the removal of typical moles, as it ensures far superior cosmetic results as compared to any other procedures, is non-surgical, minimally invasive, safe, painless and highly effective. Radiosurgery used radio waves to do the cutting, the mole removal procedure implying no bleeding due to the cauterization property of the radiosurgery device, which also ensures minimal scarring, enhances the healing process and leaves minimal to no scarring whatsoever.
