Laser treatments at our practice are often combined with surgical techniques to give patients the best outcomes possible with mole removal.
Which Is the Best Laser?
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.
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 coloured 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 its 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 is available in all our skin treatment clinics.

* Histology or mole testing – It is our policy that ALL mole specimens deemed appropriate are sent for testing for ultimate peace of mind. This involves the mole that is removed is 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.
** Doctor consultations are purely for the mole’s 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.
Prices above are a guide to the costs and the exact price can only be determined once the doctor has examined the mole and advice given as to the best way of removal. Larger and more complex moles are likely to incur a higher fee.
Our aim to to provide a first-class service however we cannot guarantee that treatment is possible until the lesion/mole has been seen by our doctor; whose individual advice takes precedence over any previous information given.
Only once you have been assessed can we give you a full recommendation on what is your best treatment option.
Occasionally that may mean a referral to another specialist whether it by for a different type of laser or for the complexity of the concern.

Laser Mole Removal FAQ: Questions & Answers
Is laser removal suitable for all moles?
Laser mole removal tends to be recommended for smaller, raised moles. We understand that patients like the idea of laser treatment, but for large and/or flat moles, our expert Doctors/Surgeons may recommend ellipse excision for best results. They will give full advice in your consultation, after examination of the mole.
Does laser mole removal hurt?
Treatment is completely pain-free, as we give a local anaesthetic prior to the procedure. You’ll just feel a brief sting as the anaesthetic injection goes in, but this passes very quickly and the laser mole removal procedure is then pain-free.
Will I need stitches?
NO – that’s the great thing about laser mole removal, as this procedure doesn’t require any stitches at all.
It is a very straightforward procedure and wounds tend to heal very well and quickly too.
How long does it take to heal?
We don’t use stitches, the area heals more like a graze or a scrape. It takes around 10-14 days for the wound to cover over with new skin, but there will be a pink mark for a few weeks. The colour eventually fades, after which, the scar is barely visible.
Can I get a quick assessment before I book?
Yes of course, we understand that this is very helpful. Our experts can often assess quite accurately from a photo what sort of treatment technique would be most appropriate and therefore the likely cost.
If you’d like some advice in advance, then please email a photo to email@example.com. This doesn’t replace the need for a face to face consultation prior to treatment, but it can be very useful to give some initial advice about what to expect.
What training do you have?
Laser mole removal is carried out by fully qualified Doctors and Surgeons who have extensive training and experience beyond their medical qualifications. They carry out thousands of procedures every year and are highly skilled.
Can I get my mole removed on the same day as consultation?
Yes, absolutely. Cosmedics Skin Clinics pioneered the ‘See & Treat’ system which enables clients to go ahead in the same appointment as their consultation. We understand that our patients are busy, so we make our appointment times generous to allow for immediate treatment (as long as both patient and Doctor/Surgeon are agreed). If you’re not sure there’s no obligation to go ahead straightaway; you’re welcome to arrange treatment for another day if preferred.
Will the mole come back?
No, once it has been removed the mole is permanently gone. The same mole will not regrow.
Can you treat multiple moles in the same appointment?
Yes, we very often remove 2 or more moles in one session, as laser mole removal is very quick and straightforward. If we are removing multiple moles, then prices per mole are cheaper after the first one.
For patients who have a lot of moles to remove, then our Doctors and Surgeons may advise more than one appointment. They will advise the best course of treatment during consultation, after assessing your moles and discussing your requirements.
