Laser treatments at our practice are often combined with surgical techniques to give patients the best outcomes possible with mole removal.
All mole removal methods will leave some degree of a small blemish, but we are able to minimize this with our latest procedures that are not only quick but you don’t feel any discomfort either.
Which is the best laser?
There are a variety of lasers used in mole removal and the reason or this is there are lots of different types of moles. Moles can be colored or clear; flat or raised or a combination of both. Once our expert skin doctor has assessed your mole we can choose the best treatment for your particular mole.
- Radiosurgery is a high frequency ‘laser like‘ method that allows treatment of moles, warts, verruca and skin tags without discomfort. This is a precise technique that cuts the moles away from the skin leaving almost no bleeding as it cauterizes the wound with a special magic-wand like device.
- IPL ( intense pulse light) can be used for more superficial pigmentation like freckles.
- Nd Yag and KTP can be used in lesions that are deeper.
- CO2 surgery simply evaporates the mole away.
Each has their own merits. Patients at Cosmedics will always get unbiased advice and who would be the most appropriate laser specialist to see. We refer to laser specialists for difficult moles if we feel this would give a better result.
Laser mole removal clinics are available in the City, Knightsbridge, Harley Street, Putney and Bristol clinics.
