At Derma Revive Skin Clinic, under CQC, we now offer expert mole removal and treatment options. Mole removal is a procedure performed to eliminate unwanted moles on the skin. Moles are common skin growths that can vary in size, colour, and shape.
While most moles are harmless, some individuals may choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons or if there are concerns about their potential for being a sign of skin cancer or melanoma, a potentially life-threatening condition.
Depending on the lesion in question, mole removal can be administered by various techniques.
We have various techniques available for you to remove your mole. The most often used, and usually, the most effective method at Derma Revive Clinic, is an Ellman – the latest diathermy Radio-surgery, to shave the mole, papilloma, or any other lesion away until it is smooth with the skin’s surface.
The Ellman can do this without leaving a scar because the radio frequency energy does not spread and damage the surrounding tissue. 7-10 days after the scab is formed, there is a fresh, healthy layer of new skin which, over time, blends into your normal complexion.
At Derma Revive Skin Clinic, we use Ellman Surgitron; Radio-surgery treatment uses the latest in diathermy technology, the Ellman Surgitron, to literally shave the mole, papilloma, or any other lesion away until it is smooth with the skin surface. The Ellman can do this and not leave a scar because the radio frequency energy does not spread and damage the surrounding tissue.
Excision: This procedure involves cutting out the lesion and a surrounding margin of healthy tissue. Excision, or an excision biopsy, is commonly used for suspicious moles or cancerous growths, larger moles, or skin tags. The doctor will remove the specific mole, and the excised tissue is usually sent for laboratory analysis to look in much more detail than the naked eye to give a proper diagnosis and rule out malignancy (skin cancer).
Shave Excision: This technique involves shaving off the lesion’s surface using a surgical blade. It is generally used for superficial, non-cancerous growths such as skin tag removal or small raised moles. Shave excision usually does not require stitches and leaves a minimal scar. The shave excision method is suitable for raised moles or protruding moles. Cosmetic mole removal is usually performed using this method.
Following any procedure to remove moles, it is important to take proper care of the treated area to promote healing and minimise the risk of infection. This may involve keeping the area clean, applying topical ointments or dressings as instructed by a dermatologist, and avoiding excessive sun exposure while the wound heals.
It is worth noting that removing moles is typically considered an outpatient procedure, and the recovery time can vary depending on the technique used and the size of the mole removed. While complications from mole removal are rare, potential risks may include infection, scarring, bleeding, or changes in pigment colour or texture.
Risks and Side Effects: While mole removal procedures are generally safe, some risks and side effects may occur. These can include infection, bleeding, scarring, changes in pigmentation, and allergic reactions. It is important to discuss potential risks and complications with your healthcare provider beforehand.
Aftercare: Your Doctor provider will provide specific instructions on post-procedure care. This may include keeping the area clean, applying prescribed ointments or dressings, avoiding excessive sun exposure, and refraining from scratching or picking at the treated area.
Follow-Up: Regular follow-up appointments with your consultant dermatologist or specialist doctor at Derma Revive is essential to monitor healing, assess the success of the removal procedure, and ensure there are no complications or signs of recurrence.
