WHAT IS A MOLE?
A common mole is a growth on the skin that develops when pigment cells (melanocytes) grow in clusters, they can range in colour from your natural skin tone to brown or black. They are usually nothing to worry about unless they change size, shape or colour. Moles can appear anywhere on your body but are more commonly found on your face, neck and scalp, areas which are more exposed to UV light.
Most skin moles appear in early childhood and during the first 20 years of life. It is normal for a person to have between 10 and 40 moles by adulthood. As the years pass, moles usually change slowly, becoming raised and lighter in colour. Often, hairs can develop in the mole. Some moles will not change at all and some will slowly disappear over time.
Prior to any mole removal treatment you must have it checked and have consent from your doctor to proceed.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM MOLE REMOVAL TREATMENT
Our advanced cosmetic techniques are the safest, proven techniques to remove or reduce moles quickly and effectively leaving little or no lasting evidence that it was there. This procedure involves us using a thin sterile needle and carefully introducing a short-wave diathermy current to the mole. This results in the evaporation of the cells inside it. You will feel a mild, warm stinging sensation which is quick and bearable. Which over time will come away leaving the skin to heal and become hardly noticeable over approximately 4-6 weeks.
MOLE REMOVAL AFTERCARE
After your treatment, a scab will form which you must leave to come away on its own. This can take several weeks and you must follow all aftercare advised for best results.
Most moles are successfully removed or certainly reduced in size and appear flatter against the skin. There will be no scarring from stitches or from being cut away like other techniques. Instead, you should see nothing more than a faint mark in place of the mole.

Aftercare must be followed to prevent infection which is very rare but is more likely in high-traffic areas.
