Mole Removal FAQs
Moles can be safely removed for cosmetic reasons to leave your skin looking smoother and mole-free.
Depending on the size and type of mole we can use the following procedure to reduce the mole appearance or remove it completely:
- Laser Removal – Our laser can be used to breakdown the pigmentation in the mole using light energy.
- Shave – this approach effectively shaves away the mole and is performed under local anaesthetic.
- Excision – this is where the mole is cut away from the skin
We can remove unwanted moles in virtually any part of the body.
A single treatment is required and will last between 12-18 months.
