Mole Removal Treatments
Many of us have skin imperfections which can develop over the course of our lives and tend to increase and enlarge as we age. Moles, in particular, can be large and unsightly. The can often be raised, with hair growing from within them and can be embarrassing if on a visible part of the body. Some skin lesions, in particular, cysts, can become infected, painful, increase in size over time and require treatment. Removing moles, skin tags and cysts can remove any irritation they may be causing and aesthetically improve the look of your skin.
While most moles are often harmless or benign skin growths; it is essential to note that if you have a mole that changes in colour or size, or starts to bleed, it is essential to get it checked by your GP.
Removing these lesions is usually very easy, and apart from concerns about changes in their appearance, the reasons why people may want to remove moles, cysts, warts and skin tags are a pain, being unsightly, restricting movement, bleeding when they rub on clothes or simply being fed up with living with them.
Our surgical suite has been purpose built and has the latest in equipment and facilities to ensure that we provide you with the safest and best possible treatments. Additionally, our doctors are very experienced in the removal of lesions and have had extensive training in providing skin surgery treatments.
How do I know what kind of lesion I have?
Skin moles are small spots on the skin which can be raised or flat. They can be skin coloured of pigmented (dark). Many people have moles which are aesthetically displeasing. Though they are usually benign and often not troublesome, mole removal can give excellent results.
Seborrhoeic Keratoses are a noncancerous skin condition that appear as a waxy brown, black, or tan growth. They can appear at any age and commonly seen on the back, around the scalp and arms. They have a tendency to slowly grow and become itchy. They can occasionally “fall off” and bleed.
Sebaceous Cyst / Pilar Cyst / Epidermoid Cyst
Sebaceous cysts most often arise from swollen hair follicles. Skin trauma can also cause a cyst to form. A sac of cells is created into which a protein called keratin is secreted. The main symptom is usually a small, non-painful lump beneath the skin. The lump is usually found on the face, neck and trunk. Although it usually grows slowly and is not painful, many people opt for cyst removal.
Xanthalasma (Fatty deposits)
Xanthelasma is a sharply demarcated yellowish deposit of fat underneath the skin, usually on or around the eyelids. While they are neither harmful nor painful, these minor growths may be disfiguring and can be removed easily. They can be linked to people having a high level of cholesterol in their blood.
Skin tags are small flesh-coloured or brown growths that hang off the skin that are harmless, but skin tag removal is available. They can vary in size. Commonest places where people get skin tags are neck, under arms, breasts and around the eyes but they can appear anywhere.
Warts are a viral infection that appear as small lumps. They can appear anywhere but are usually found in hands and feet. They have a tendancy to multiply over time and can become painful, especially on the soles of feet.
Haemangioma are birthmarks that are benign collection of cells lined with blood vessels. It is the lining of blood vessels that gives them the bright colour. It is also the collection of blood vessels that sometimes lead to them increasing in size rapidly.
Campbell de Morgan Spots
These benign bright red spots usually appear in adult life. They are a collection of multiple small tiny blood vessels within the layers of the skin. They rarely cause problems and can appear anywhere; the commonest places being on the neck, trunk and arms.

"I had a mole on the side of my nose which really bothered me. Although I had it for many years towards the end, it became the focus of everything in my mind; it had also grown in size. I had it removed at LasaDerm and am so pleased, wish I had done it years ago."
