At Skin Clinic Robina, our Gold Coast cosmetic mole removal specialists can safely eliminate all uwanted moles and lesions from your body. There are many reasons why people choose to have moles removed, with the most common being; cosmetic, discomfort and skin cancer prevention.
Whilst not posing an immediate danger to a person’s health, moles that are located in cosmetically-sensitive areas (particularly the face) can be damaging to a person’s self-esteem.
Moles of this variety are located in areas of the body that cause pain and irritation. This typically includes the skin that is covered by a bra stap or waist belt. Other examples can also include areas of the face (including under the chin and back of the neck) where a large mole or lesion can interfere with shaving.
Another reason patients sometimes seek to remove moles on their body, is due to the increased threat of skin cancer. Skin blemishes such as freckles and moles can often be the direct result of sun damage. Although they are typically harmless, it is possible for a common mole to become cancerous. If you are concerned about a particular mole on your body, we strongly advise you to consult with a skin cancer specialist.
We offer three different treatment methods for cosmetic mole removal;
The length of the procedure depends on the amount of moles you wish to have removed and the method of treatment you elect to use.
With every mole removal procedure performed, there is a chance that a faint scar will be left behind. Our skin specialists utilise the very latest techniques and technologies to guarantee that scarring – if any, is minor. Patients may experience mild skin irritation, immediately after the treatment. Your specialist will advise you on the necessary post-operative instructions, which will vary depending on which method of treatment you have chosen to use.
Once the mole has been successfully removed, it typically will not grow back again.
Radiofrequency – a scab will typically develop around 1 – 2 weeks immediately following the procedure, after which it will dry out and break off around 1 week later. The treated area will often remain red for 1 – 3 months after the procedure, depending on your skin type.
Laser – whilst side effects are extremely uncommon, the treated area can become infected or sometimes heal to a slightly darker colour than the rest of your skin (for people with fair skin) or a slightly lighter colour (for people with dark skin). These pigmentation issues will usually fade over time, but can remain permanently.
Excision – the treated area may remain red and slightly sore for quite some time, following the procedure and patients are advised to use sunscreen for at least 6 months. Excision removal can lead to minor scarring and in rare cases, cause infection.
