Moles are rarely something most of us want to have. Typically, most moles are benign, harmless skin appearances, which usually appear on the body’s extremities. However, moles, like other skin appearances, can present themselves anywhere on your body. If a mole is not benign and therefore is malignant, then removal becomes a necessity to ensure your health. However, many patients seek mole removal for aesthetic reasons as well, which leads to the question, what are the treatment options to remove moles?
4 Different Treatments, All Effective in Their Own Right
This method is used primarily for moles that have a raised appearance compared to the skin around it. A scalpel will be used to bring the mole’s surface level with the surrounding skin. This leads to a smoother appearance of the area.
This mole removal method is designed to deal with smaller skin moles. A unique tool is used through a technique that punches out the area of skin containing the mole. The goal with this method is to remove the mole in one swoop, whereas the shave excision works in a more repetitive process to get similar results.
Despite the alarming name, this process is not as drastic or concerning as it sounds. It does give the assurance of having the mole removal performed by a qualified professional, though. The goal of this mole removal method is also to remove the mole entirely.
This is the most preferred method of mole removal. A laser heats the cells and tissue of the mole, allowing the pigment of the area to be broken down and naturally absorbed by your body in the healing process. Due to the laser being used, stitches or sutures are not needed afterwards.
These treatments for mole removal can also be used for other blemishes.
