Mole Removal

A mole is a common, usually non-cancerous lesion on the skin. These skin lesions vary in colour, size, location, and texture. Some may appear tiny, light-coloured, and flat, others may be big, raised, dark, and hairy. However, in some instances, moles can be unsightly raised lumps and they can be life-threatening as well.

Moles are usually non-medical issues but more of a cosmetic concern. While some moles taint an individual’s overall appearance, others can develop and become cancerous as a person matures. Thus, most people opt to have these moles removed.

All you need to know about Mole Removal

What causes moles to develop?

Moles often appear as small, dark brown spots and are caused by clusters of pigmented cells.

Here are some causes why moles develop on your skin:

  • Sun exposure: This plays an important role in mole development. Overexposure to direct sunlight can harm your skin which may result in skin hyperpigmentation.  Thus, the unlikely development of moles.
  • Melanocytes: Moles are caused when melanocytes or the cells in the skin grow in clusters, clumps or lesion.
  • Genetics: Indeed, the formation of moles on your skin can be hereditary. When you notice that your family members, especially your parents are endowed with a lot of moles, chances are you will most likely have lots of them, too.
  • Ageing: This is an inevitable process that naturally occurs on anyone. As you age you will notice age spots and moles gradually increasing in number.
  • Medication: There are body responses to drugs that suppress your immune system, resulting in mole and lesion growth.

The Irregular Shape of Mole

If your mole is round in shape with a smooth flat surface, it is healthy and unnecessary to remove. However, if your mole seems to have scruffy edges and is blotchy, it is best to have your specialist evaluate it as it may be cancerous.

Varied Mole Pigmentation

Moles are typically single-coloured skin lesion. If your mole bears a single shade, then there is no need to have it removed as it is most likely benign.

A Mole with Transforming Characteristics

You will notice that your mole usually maintain its texture, colour and size even for many years. However, if your mole evolves into something bigger, plumper, or darker, it could be a sign that you need to seek the expert advice of your skincare specialist.

The Appearance of New Moles

New moles appear unceasingly during the developmental phase of your body. However, if there are new and more moles growths after the age of 35, it may be an indication that melanoma or skin cancer is developing.

Easily Irritated Moles

A non-cancerous mole is benign or dormant in nature. It should not cause irritation or discomfort on your skin. If bleeding, itching, and pain on your skin start to show, It is best to have your mole evaluated for proper cosmetic treatment. This condition carries risks that may lead to skin cancer when disregarded.

Mole Removal Melbourne

There are several cosmetic procedures for how skin lesion or mole is removed. However, it is always best to consult your trusted skin care clinic or specialist to know the best option suitable for the type of skin and the mole to be removed.

Aura Laser Mole Treatment

This cosmetic mole removal technique is a non-invasive laser treatment for skin rejuvenation, firming, clearing, and toning. The LED light from the Aura laser is readily absorbed by the pigmentation in the skin which helps break down problem areas and treats many skin conditions such as moles, lesions, hyperpigmentation, and protruding veins.

Mole Excision Surgery

Excision is a surgical procedure of removing undesirable moles or skin lesions. It is a traditional technique of removing a mole and lesion and repairing the area of surgery with stitches. This cosmetic treatment requires skill and experience to excise a mole or lesion accurately and then to suture it so that it leaves minimal scarring.

Mole Excision by Shaving

This mole removal approach uses a scalpel to scrape away mole or lesion growth. The procedure starts with numbing the treatment site with a local anaesthetic. Mole excision by shaving is a surgical procedure that requires accuracy and experience. Thus, it is best to visit your trusted skin clinic to ensure safe and infection-free cosmetic treatments.

Cryotherapy

This mole removal treatment involves a fine, targeted, and ultra-cold mist of nitrous oxide gas at high pressure to effortlessly and painlessly treat unwanted mole and lesion. Nitrous oxide treats damaged tissue by freezing intercellular fluid, helping to speed up the removal of skin tags, moles and other skin issues.

Radiofrequency Mole Removal

This mole removal option uses radiofrequency to cauterize your unwanted mole or skin lesion. This procedure may also be used to remove skin tags and warts. Radiofrequency mole removal procedures aim to reduce any bleeding at the excision site. It also considerably decreases the chances of scar and scab formation, hence, this procedure is the perfect option for mole removal on the face area.
