Moles are very common. They are also referred to as nevi and can be present from birth or can appear later on in life, regardless of age. They are dark colored, brown-pigmented or even skin-colored, flat or raised dots which can appear anywhere on the body, but they are usually more common on the back, face, and extremities. At Renew Skin and Health Clinic, there are various treatments that can be used for mole removal procedures, including radiosurgery.

Radiosurgery is different from laser mole removal treatments due to the fact that it does not heat the area the same way laser does. Unlike laser, radiosurgery uses a high frequency alternate current in order to have your mole removed.

In what concerns the laser mole removal procedure, this is as radiosurgery, a fast, painless and scarless procedure which lasts between 15-30 minutes and it is performed at the clinic as a day case procedure, allowing you to return to your normal routine straight after it. At Renew skin and Health Clinic our private dermatologists perform the procedure under a local anesthetic, so you won’t feel any discomfort, and only after a professional, specialized consultation which includes a medical history check and the actual skin examination.

There are various types of lasers that can be used for a mole removal procedure, and the laser type used depends on your skin lesion. The difference between the types of laser consists in the light’s wavelength. Our Renew Skin and Health Clinic specialists will recommend you the laser which would give the best results and best suits your condition.

The lasers used are the KTP, ND:Yag laser, Intense Pulse Light lasers, Q-Switched Laser HS220, Cynergy or the Erbium laser which emit specific wavelengths in order to target the darker color pigment in the skin. Immediately after the laser mole removal procedure the area turns darker, but this depigmentation should fade away quickly, the final results being visible after 4-7 days. This mole removal procedure is usually risk-free, but there may be some side-effects which may include minial bleeding, scarring, depigmentation and infections; nevertheless, these are rare and usually occur if the procedure is not performed correctly.
