Expert Mole Removal Clinic
Eliminating moles with minimal down time in a professional and medical environment.
While generally harmless, there’s nothing like the appearance of a mole to make you feel less beautiful than the Wicked Witch of the West on a bad day. Moles can appear anywhere on the skin, either alone or in groups. Usually brown in colour, it is possible for moles to be dark blue, black or a pinkish flesh colour. In addition, they can be flat, raised, or round.
The vast majority are nothing more than a cosmetic concern, but changes in size, shape and form of a mole can be an indicator of skin cancer. For complete peace of mind, the Royal Tunbridge Wells Skin & Laser Clinic offers both mole scanning and the removal of benign moles.
Skin Mole Removal - What can I expect?
A Mole Mate™ scan must be carried out before any mole removal procedure to ensure the mole is safe to be removed. Mole Mate™ is a non-invasive, painless procedure used as a skin cancer screening device.
Mole removal with Erbium resurfacing laser is a simple, quick but accurate popular procedure. The cosmetic results are very good, with very little in the way of scarring or marks after the procedure.
We use the latest laser technology to ensure any scarring is minimal. However, if the mole is hairy, the Fotona Er:YAG laser will not remove the hairs and these may need be dealt with later using our hair removal Lasers.
Postoperative care is minimal. Your practitioner may ask you to use an anti-bacterial ointment for three to five days and will suggest that you stay out of the sun for some time.
The Er:YAG Laser causes a superficial wound to the skin that takes 7-10 days to heal. Consultation, mole scanning and surgical laser removal can all be done during one visit, in less than one hour.
Removing Moles - How many treatments will I need?
One treatment should be sufficient. Your medical practitioner can also assess your risk of developing skin cancer and advise you on suitable skin care, sun protection and how to determine if changes in your moles occur between visits.
