Which Moles Can Be Removed With Laser?

Laser mole treatment is an ideal operation for removing moles that cause discomfort without scarring, delays or excess pain.

Laser mole treatment is especially a good option for moles on hard-to-reach areas such as the ears or around the face.

Benefits of Laser Mole Treatment

The primary benefit of laser mole removal is that it is noninvasive. Meaning it is done without spilling any blood. As there are no cuts or burns to the skin, risk of infection is greatly reduced. Laser can also reach otherwise hard-to-reach areas of the body such as the face or nose. Finally, more than one mole can be treated in one session.

The most appropriate treatment method will be decided by your doctor according to the results of the thorough mole examination. When compared to other extraction methods, laser mole removal poses lower risk of scarring for patients. This is because laser light breaks up pigmentation in the mole without causing a lot of direct harm to the skin. In other words, no cuts are made during this procedure. At the same time this lowers the risk of infection. In many cases, when the lesion is completely removed it will not be apparent that there was a mole there previously. This is especially an advantage for moles on the face. If you are prone to keloid scar formation, let your doctor know before laser mole treatment. They may need to make prior plans for this possibility. Laser mole removal treatment does not pose any harm for your health. In very rare cases, the mole can regrow. However, in this case you can consult your doctor and start a new treatment.

Your doctor will inform you in detail regarding conditions like these prior to the treatment.

What To Pay Attention To After Laser Mole Treatment

In many cases, local anaesthesia is applied prior to laser mole removal operation. Laser beam is directed at the cells forming the mole. These cells absorb the beams and therefore while the adjacent skin stays intact, the mole is removed from the skin surface. This is a much earlier healing period compared to surgical intervention. Following the completion of the operation your doctor will explain to you how to take care of your skin at home, what to do and what not to do. When laser mole removal treatment is completed, for a certain amount of time there will be a small red spot in place of the mole. The redness after the laser mole treatment will be covered by a small, temporary medical dressing. There will crusting on the application area in the following days. About a week later when the crust falls, the place where the mole used to be will be smooth and light pink. This tone will slowly fade and disappear in time. Patients are generally requested to avoid putting make-up on the application area until the crust falls off. If you must put on make-up, inform your doctor beforehand and act according to their recommendations.
