Should I Worry About Skin Moles?

Moles on the face and body are common and we often get more moles as we age. Moles can become a problem when they catch when shaving or on clothes or are simply cosmetically unacceptable. New moles or those that change rapidly in size shape and colour need to be assessed by your doctor to ensure it is not a worrying or suspicious mole.

Cosmedics offer painless mole removal surgery or laser mole removal for all facial and body moles. Treatment only takes about 20 minutes at our clinics in Bristol and London.

Your Consultation

At your consultation, your mole will be examined by one of our expert skin doctors to assess the best method of removal often using a polarised light (dermatoscopy) to help identify the type and depth of the mole. This revolutionary device makes our assessment of moles much more accurate and helps decide the best way to remove certain moles.

Doctor consultations are purely for the moles’ patients request to have assessed for removal and do not constitute a full body mole check. This is available as a separate service for a top-to-toe review of your skin and identification of any worrying lesions.

Occasionally, if we feel the cosmetic outcome would not be beneficial, we would advise against any treatment.  However, our range of treatments means that the vast majority of moles can be removed quickly, easily and painlessly.

Histology / Testing of the Mole

Once the moles are removed in most cases the removed piece of skin is sent for testing at a separate laboratory where it is examined under microscopy by a pathologist doctor to ensure they are no early changing cells lower down in the skin that is not always visible to the naked eye. This practice of sending the moles for testing is the gold standard and anything less does not meet good medical practice.

Regardless of which procedure is undertaken, it is our policy to send all specimens we deem appropriate for testing. Mole testing is carried out at a separate laboratory where the excised mole tissue is examined under a microscope by a specialist doctor to ensure that there are no early changes. This is for patient safety and good clinical practice.

Histology / Testing

It is our policy that ALL mole specimens deemed appropriate are sent for testing for patient safety, good clinical practice and ultimate peace of mind.

This involves the mole that is removed being sent to another laboratory where it is examined by a doctor to ensure all the layers of the skin are normal. Very occasionally even moles that look fine after removal can be found to have abnormalities lower down. This microscopic histopathology testing is the only 100% guarantee the mole is normal.

We charge the lowest prices possible for histology as we realise patients often feel it is not required, but occasionally rare or suspicious things are detected early on in lesions that can look normal, which is why this is good practice. We make no financial gain from this service.

Histology/testing of the removed skin lesion is mandatory if the Doctor recommends it to ensure there are no abnormalities. The doctor will clarify this at the consultation and may refuse to do the treatment if the client refuses the histology recommendation or else ask the client to sign a document stating they went against the Doctors advice.

Any test results or correspondence will be sent to your email account via an encrypted system called Egress. Should this not be preferable, please let us know at your appointment.

Treatment Options – laser, surgery, freezing

– Shave excision surgery – no stitches& takes 5 minutes. Best for raised moles. Most popular

‘See and treat’ service

At all of our clinics, our doctors offer same-day mole removal that means just the one appointment and the procedure is done there and then. Our latest techniques often mean no follow up appointments are required either as each clinic is specifically designed for mole removal by laser and or surgery.

‘See and treat’ same-day procedures are only undertaken where the procedure is deemed appropriate to do so AND the patient understands the full extent of the costs, risks and potential side effects and is consenting to proceed on that knowledge)

As part of the consultation, we discuss all the risks, benefits and likely results as part of our full informed consent process. Pictures may also often be taken as part of the assessment that are kept as a confidential record of before the procedure.

After the procedure, you can resume normal activities in most cases and a dressing is applied to keep the wound clean for a few days.

Before and after photos for mole, skin tag and wart removal can be seen on our picture gallery.


Patient Review

“I was so nervous about needles that I nearly did not have it done. I don’t know why I was worrying as it was all over so quickly and really did not feel a thing.  Cosmedics really did look after me as they were so professional and understanding”

Kim D. Brighton

Aftercare recommendations

For shave excisions we normally advise the following aftercare:

  • If you have a dressing you will be told when it can be removed;
  • Vaseline is normally then applied to keep the wound moist for 1 to 2 weeks until healed;
  • The wound will be red for 2 to 3 weeks, which gradually settles over the next few months;
  • Massaging with oils (bio-oil) or moisturising (dermatix) creams is advisable after 2 to 3 weeks to help reduce any scarring;
  • If there is any increasing pain or redness, consult your doctor.

For elliptical excisions we normally advise the following aftercare:

  • Keep the wound dry for 2 days;
  • Dressings can be left for up to a week;
  • You will be informed as to whether your stitches are dissolvable or need to be removed;
  • Over 1 to 2 weeks, in areas where the skin is under tension such as the back and legs, it is advisable to reduce exercises which would possibly stretch the wound;
  • Steri-strips can be applied over the wound for up to 3 weeks to help the wound heal;
  • After 3 weeks the wound can be massaged with oils bio-oil or silicon scar creams (dermatix);
  • If there is any increasing pain or redness consult your doctor as it could be a sign of infection.

    1. It is difficult to say without seeing the spot, but Cosmedics do offer a choice of treatments for skin lesions of all shapes and sizes. If you wish, you can send a photograph to and we can get a doctor’s opinion; although you would still need a consultation in person before treatment.

  1. I need to write to say thank you so much to doctor Daniel Thio and Sarah for removing my mole last Saturday. It was such an enjoyable experience at Lytchfield House in Clifton. I was greated by a lovely man who gave me coffee in the very plush waiting room. I was then met by dr Thio himself who was so relaxed and professional. We talked through the whole process of all my options and I was given all the time I needed. We decided that a shave excision was the best for me.

    I would say to anyone if you are in doubt or think they may hack your face to pieces (which I did,!) TRUST HIM. The whole process is over in five minutes and does not hurt at all. It’s now Thursday and it has healed over so well. I kept the area covered with Vaseline which you do for about a week and after that you are mole free! I wish I knew about this clinic years ago.

    THANK you so much,!

    1. Thank you for your feedback. We’re glad you are pleased with the results and have passed your comments onto Dr Daniel Thio too.

  2. Hi, I’m considering having 2 moles removed from my face but I’m a little apprehensive to the possibility of a scar. I also live approx. 4 hours from London/Bristol. Would it be possible for me to send a picture to have an idea if it would be possible to remove them before booking a consultation and travelling down to London? Thank you!

    1. Yes, please send a photograph of the moles to and we will ask a Mole Removal Doctor for their opinion. You would still need a consultation before treatment, but hopefully it is helpful to get some advice in advance.

  3. Hi, I was wondering if I could email a picture of my mole to you so I could get an estimate of how much it would cost to remove & also what procedure needs to be done? Thank you xo

    1. Yes, please send a photograph of your mole to and we will ask a Mole Removal Doctor for their opinion. This is not a substitute for a proper consultation, but hopefully it is helpful to get some advice in advance of booking your appointment.

  4. I have a raised mole in the corner of my eye (carancula) would this be able to be removed?? If so, would laser treatment be best? As it is in my eye?

    1. This would probably require an oculoplastic surgeon due to proximity to the eye. However, if you wish you can send a photograph of your mole to and we will ask a Doctor to give advice.

  5. Dear Cosmedics Skin Clinic,
    I have two facial moles that I would like to have removed. I can send you a picture so you can ascertain the procedure you would recommend for their removal. I am anxious about scarring so if you could please assure me that this would either not happen or be virtually indistinguishable. I very much look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
    Sophie Martin.

    1. Any mole removal will leave a scar, although we use techniques to minimise it and scars do become less apparent over time – patients would usually rather have the small scar than the original mole itself.
      Please send a photograph of the blemishes to and we can ask a doctor to provide some advice specifically for you. You would still need a consultation before treatment, but may find it helpful to get some advice in advance.

  6. I would just like to say that I had a mole removed on my face in Bristol (earlier message left by myself just after the procedure) and it’s only been a couple of months but I can’t see any scar , only when I shine a really bright light onto my face with no make up on but my husband can’t notice it at all.

  7. I would just like to leave some lovely feed back I had a large raised mole removed of my right cheek 4 weeks ago and I just can’t get over how lovely and relaxed the whole experience was Dr Perry removed my mole who was absolutely lovely and made me feel at ease, like many I was very worried too about the scaring as it being quite large and on my face, but I’m over the moon with the end result you can hardly notice at all, it’s given me so much more confidence I feel great now mr moley moley has now gone. thank you soooo much I can’t thank you enough, one very happy lady Thank you Dr Perry & your lovely Team Mand xxxx

    1. Hi Amanda, thank you so much for leaving your feedback, we really appreciate it and are glad you’re so pleased with the result.

  8. Hello,

    I have a few flat dark/black small spots around my face, nothing compared to moles or skin moles, just normal small spots. Would there be a procedure to remove them as I would like to have a clear face.


    Fabricio Jacome Aules

    1. It is difficult to advise on this without seeking the spots. If you would like to email a photograph of the problem to we can ask a doctor to give an opinion. This is no substitute for a face to face consultation, but can help to give an idea of the likely nature of the problem and treatment required.

    1. Mole removal via shave excision, which is normally used for flat moles, costs from £295. In addition, there is a £80 fee for mole testing. All mole removal costs are subject to consultation with a doctor to properly assess the mole and at this point, the best treatment would be confirmed together with cost.

    1. We would need to examine the mole to confirm a definite price, but mole removal starts from £295 for small moles using laser or shave excision. In addition there is a standard £80 charge for mole testing (histology). If you wish you can email a photo of the mole to for further advice.

  9. I just wanted to leave feedback re: mole removal I had done at the Harley St clinic at the end of Oct ’14 by Dr Ross Perry. I had 2 raised moles above my lip. I suppose I’d got used to them but deep down wanted to get them removed but never brave enough. I decided months ago it was now or never and booked an appointment about 2 months in advance! I’m so glad I didn’t back out and went for it! The whole procedure was straight forward and I felt at ease even though I was a bit nervous.Everything was so professional yet friendly. I’m not great with clinics or hospitals so this was a tough one for me but I braved it out! I was given 2 creams/gel to use (until Feb 15) and a cold sore plaster to cover the ‘wounds’ for the first 2 weeks – which were great to avoid infection. Also, easy to wear makeup over. It’s coming up to 4 weeks now since the procedure and I’m so happy with how they look! I just have faded marks/circles where the moles were but they’re healing so well. I can easily cover them with make up and if they’ve healed this well in a few weeks then I’m sure they’ll fade even more over the coming months! 🙂 I really wish I’d done this years ago but the what if questions held me back. I just wanted to say THANK YOU very much to Dr Perry and the staff member in the clinic that day because I’m more confident in myself now. Thank you!

  10. hi my skin is mixed so im half white and half black i have some flat black moles on my face is it even possible to remove them ? because of my skin type.

    1. We can certainly try to provide advice based on your photos, but this is never a substitute for proper face to face diagnosis in a consultation with a doctor. If you wish to send a photograph to get some initial feedback, please email it to

    1. We have removed many moles on or around the lip – you will see a few in the before/after photos. However, every case is different; so if you would like an opinion prior to coming for consultation, please email a photo to

    1. Yes, patients can choose to send a photograph of their mole to and we will ask a Doctor to give an opinion. This does not replace a face to face consultation, but will give you some idea of what is likely to be involved in terms of treatment.

    1. Yes, most skin lesions can be removed in the same appointment. This has the added advantage of allowing you to redeem the consultation fee against your treatment.

    1. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not normally cover such treatments and we have no arrangements in place.

  11. Good morning,

    Do you remove moles from more “private area” ? Most of the examples are on the face… If that’s the case would it still be possible to remove it the same day of the appointment ?

    Thanks in advance

    1. Yes, we do remove moles from genital/intimate areas and our doctors are always careful to make the experience as comfortable as possible. The vast majority of moles are removed in the same appointment as the consultation, which saves the need for a revisit if you wish to go ahead. We also discount the £50 consultation fee where the mole is removed straightaway.

  12. Hi,
    I’ve had a mole removed with you before. Me and my sister would like one mole removed each. Would we get the discount price for two moles if we came in together?

    1. Sorry we can’t discount mole removal apart from if you have treatment at the same time as the consultation, in which case we are able to discount the consultation fee.

  13. I have been diagnosed with a cancerous mole on my back but the nhs waiting list is 5months can I get it done quicker

    1. Hi Kerry, we’re very sorry to hear about your diagnosis and waiting list issues. Please book an appt with Dr Ross Perry who can assess the mole and arrange removal if appropriate at one of our London clinics. Please call 020 7386 0464 or email to book.

    1. We can usually arrange an appointment within a matter of days (it could well be this week depending on clinic times and appointment availability). The mole can normally be removed in the same appointment if you and the doctor both agree to go ahead. This saves a revisit and we are also able to deduct the consultation fee off the treatment price if it is carried out at the same time. Please email or call 020 7386 0464 if you wish to book.

  14. I had my mole excised yesterday, and I just want to say I was so impressed and Dr Ross Perry did an excellent job. Felt very comfortable and looked after.


  15. Hello
    I have about 8 to 9 very very small flat dark brown moles on my face, so I’m wondering if you are going to charge me for each of them individually?

    Many Thanks

    1. There is a discount for having more than one mole removed at a time. Our normal price is £895 for 5 moles to be removed by laser treatment. However, costs are always confirmed after seeing the lesions as every individual patient’s requirements vary. If you would like a more accurate quote in advance of an appointment with a doctor, you could email a photo of your moles in confidence to

  16. Which procedure leaves the least scarring? Before booking a consultation are you able to get an idea of what procedure they will recommended as if it’s any with stitches I won’t be doing it! Thanks

    1. The treatment option depends very much on the mole, but our doctors do use minimal scarring techniques and aim for the best cosmetic outcome. If you could send in a photo to, we can ask Dr Ross Perry to advise on your particular mole. This doesn’t replace a consultation, but can usually give a good indication of what to expect.

Mole Removal London

We all have moles, just some of us have more than others and somewhat annoyingly on the face or body where we wish they were not. Most moles are harmless and are not of any concern. They can be either flat, raised and skin or brown coloured. For peace of mind as well as cosmetic and practical concerns we see over 4000 patients a year for mole removal via surgery and or laser treatment. 

Mole removal on the face is the most common treatment as these moles can often be unsightly and prone to grow over time. Our patients then want to find a mole clinic near them to not only get it checked but also to have a scarless treatment where the cost privately is not too high. Patients’ reasons for visiting us vary but common concerns are worries about changing or irritating moles, wanting to check they are not serious or harmful. For others, the moles can rub itch catch and generally a nuisance so want them removed. Other people have children who tend to point out their moles more than adults do so become more conscious of them, decide that it’s grown to a size that is now just more obvious and others just fed up with people looking at their facial moles. 

Mole Removal Procedure

Mole removal, despite what most patients believe, is straight forward quick, simple and safe with great cosmetic results. We find most patients have seen their GP or another doctor and warned that they will have a worse scar from the mole removal. Nowadays private mole removal with laser and refined surgical techniques mole removal procedures are virtually scarless. 

At Cosmedics our doctors and plastic surgeons only remove a mole in the face where the outcome is far superior to the mole itself.  At Cosmedics we have pioneered the ‘See & Treat ‘ service that enables patients to avoid having to worry about coming back as they can have it done on the day in most cases as a simple walk in walk out same day mole removal. The process involves consultation at one of our London mole clinics where the mole is examined by dermoscopy (special polarised light to look into the skin) which helps diagnose how deep the mole is and what mole removal procedures will work best. Should patients want it removed there and then, all of our appointments are allocated so that there is time to do this. 

The treatment whether laser mole removal or surgery is painless and only takes 10-20 minutes. Patients are amazed how quick, precise and easy the process is and simply leave immediately after to carry on their normal day to day activities. With the latest mole removal methods such as shave decision and laser, we rarely use stitches and the wounds heal like a graze over 7-10 days. We then cover the healing area with a skin coloured tiny dressing that makeup can cover and go about normal daily activities. Once they have healed they then fade from red to pink to skin colour over a few months with only a tiny blemish where the mole once was. 

Mole Removal Cost

Mole removal cost starts from £310 and we send all moles for histology (testing with a microscope at the laboratory) to ensure there are no early changes in the mole for peace of mind and let you know these results a few days later. Be sure to get in touch with us today to find out more about how we can help you.
