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

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

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

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/Verrucaes

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.

Treatment Options

This is very good for superficial skin lesions. The mole, wart or skin tag sloughs off a few days after treatment.

Uses electricity to heat tissue which in turn dries up and removes the mole, cyst, wart or skin tag. It is also used to stem or reduce any blood flow.

This scrapes off the lesion from the skin. Can be used on its own or in combination with Electrocautery.

Plexr treatment uses plasma energy to vaporize the lesions.

Our Ndyag Laser is excellent for the removal of Cherry Angiomas.

Removal by cutting the lesion out of the skin. See Tab for more information.

FAQs

The majority of lesions can be successfully removed with one treatment. If you require more, your doctor will inform you of this at your consultation.

For Cryotherapy, Electrocautery, Curettage and PlexR®: A small blister may form which will then scab off revealing new skin underneath. More commonly there may appear to be a small sore which will heal spontaneously over the next few days. Once healed there is usually no scar with these procedures.

Ndyag Laser: immediately after the area may go darker. Occasionally a small blister may form. This will fade after a few days leaving no trace of treatment.

Surgical Excision. You may be asked to come back to have a quick review the following day. Your stitches will be removed 5 – 10 days later to reveal a small scar which will be pink/red. This will fade over the course of the next few weeks usually leaving virtually no sign that you had the mole in the first place.

For skin tags and solar keratosis, we try and remove as many as you can tolerate. Most patients want them gone as quickly as possible, and it is possible to do as many as 50 skin tags in one go. For Solar keratosis, we try and cover as much of the area as the doctor deems practical.

For the surgical excision of moles, we can do multiple excisions at one time.

The doctor will then use a scalpel to remove the lesion.

The skin is then stitched back together using an appropriate sterile suture (surgical thread). The wound will then be reviewed by the doctor in 5-10 days, when the stitches will be removed.

*Optional -The specimen which has been cut out can be sent to the histology laboratory at your request or when the doctor has concerns at an additional charge. The results of these will be passed to you and ensure that anything serious such as possible skin cancer is followed up as soon as required. Most lesions are of course benign and our aim is always to refer patients to hospital (as per National Surgical guidance set by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence) if we have serious concerns about any moles prior to removal.

Customer Testimonial

"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."
