Before & After
How does mole removal works?
There are many methods of mole removal. Each technique is geared toward eliminating the growth of the mole by creating a small wound.
The techniques used can be surgical incision and laser mole removal. They’re used to remove moles that can be easily snipped or removed from the surface of the skin. Other moles may need a sutured incision if they extend to the deeper layer of the skin.
Is the procedure painful?
The pain you experience varies on the technique used for mole removal. However, regardless of the methods, a local anesthetic is introduced to ensure the comfort of the patients. The treatment is quick, has minimal side-effects and doesn’t result in any excessive scar tissues.
What is the recovery time for mole removal
When you get mole removal on a small mole, the recovery time is short and minimal, compared to the week it’ll take you to recover from suture incision. In addition to that, the location of the mole removal can also affect the recovery time.
The practitioner performing the treatment may recommend you bed rest for the recovery period and you may also need to use a topical ointment to reduce the risk of scarring.
