Skin Mole Removal With CoLaz
What Is A Skin Mole
Moles are a common skin condition that affects many people. They can appear anywhere on the body but most commonly occur on the face and neck. Moles can range in colour from pink to light brown, dark brown or even black.
They are usually round or oval but can be very small or quite large, flat or raised, smooth or bumpy, and may or may not have hair growing out of them.
The majority of moles are harmless, but there is always the risk that they may be cancerous. That’s why it’s essential to have your moles checked regularly by a dermatologist.
What Causes Skin Moles
There are many causes of skin moles. The most common cause of moles is when the cells in the skin grow in clusters instead of being spread evenly throughout the skin. These cells are known as melanocytes which give the skin its pigment. Most mole usually appears in your early childhood and young adulthood however some moles can be present at birth.
As you start to age, the moles can change in colour sometimes due to sun exposure or start developing hairs in moles. Occasionally some moles may disappear over time.
When To Consider Having Moles Removed
Most of our clients remove moles due to cosmetic reasons such as they don’t like the appearance of the mole, especially if it is on the face, they feel embarrassed and feel unattractive, orit is bothering them if on the body they feel it gets caught in their clothing or jewellery and starts to cause irritation and discomfort.
The Procedure For Removal Of Skin Mole
Many procedures are available to remove a skin mole, such as cryotherapy (freezing), Excision surgery, laser treatments and advanced electrolysis.
1. Cryotherapy: This method is also known as “freezing” and involves applying liquid nitrogen to the mole. Eventually, the liquid nitrogen will destroy the cell tissue, and the growth will diminish or fall off. Cryotherapy can be painful and may sometimes cause scarring.
2.. Excision Surgery: Excision surgery cuts out a section of skin containing the mole, then is sent to a lab for examination. If the growth is cancerous, it will be removed entirely and replaced with stitches or surgical glue.
3. Laser treatments: Laser treatments can also be used to remove moles by burning them off so that they won’t grow back again. This method does not leave any scars on the skin.
4. Advanced electrolysis: involves applying a needle to the mole and sending an electric current through it, which destroys its cells without damaging any surrounding tissue.
When Should You Be Concerned About Moles
It’s important to remember that not all moles are cancerous, and many people live their lives without any problems.
You should check your moles regularly and remember to look for the signs and symptoms. The most important rule that you should remember is the ABCDEs.
The acronym stands for
- Asymmetry: Moles that are not symmetrical with different-looking halves.
- Border: Ragged, blurred or smudgy borders or edges of the mole.
- Colour: Moles are different colours such as black, blue, white, or red.
- Diameter: Moles that are larger than the diameter of a pencil.
- Evolving: Moles that look different from others and have changed in size, colour or shape, or you have developed new moles.
If you notice any of these signs or find that your mole is bleeding, itching or painful, contact your GP or dermatologist immediately to review your mole.
About CoLaz Skin Mole Removal Services
CoLaz uses electrolysis to remove moles by sending an electrical current into a mole and destroying its cells. This method has been proven to be quick, virtually painless, effective and leaves little scarring at the treatment site.
The Treatment Process
1. Book your Consultation
The first step is to book a consultation where a trained clinician will assess your mole and explain the Procedure in full.
Please note we do require a doctor’s note to confirm the mole can be removed before treatment commencing – (you can obtain this note before the consultation or after consultation)
A consultation will be £35, redeemable against the treatment if you choose to go ahead.
Qualified clinicians will carry out the treatment.
- The area will be cleansed
- Numbing cream will be applied to your mole
- The mole will be treated once it is numb by electrolysis
- Aftercare will be applied
After the treatment, the mole will reduce in size and appear shrivelled. Over the come days, it will form into a scab, which will fall naturally within a few weeks– it is essential you do not touch, scratch, or rub the area as this can lead to scarring. It would help if you keep the treatment area clean and dry. Further, aftercare advice will be provided to you by your clinic.
4. Follow up appointment
You will be booked for a follow-up treatment within 6-8 weeks, where the clinician will review your mole and deliver any further treatments required – Please note some moles may require up to 3 treatments.
What Results Can I Expect
Results vary from individual to individual as some moles require one treatment, and other moles may require up to 2-3 treatments.
The mole will generally reduce in size and fall naturally; however, the mole will require further treatment once it has healed as some of the moles will be still present – additional treatments will remove the mole.
Where the mole was removed, the area may be pigmentated. For example, if you have a black mole, the surface may be dark in colour once we removed it due to the pigment. On occasions, there may be hypopigmentation present.
If the mole is deep-rooted, then after treatment, you may get a slight dip in the skin. Our clinician can not see what is under the mole, so it is difficult to advice what the skin will be like once the mole has been removed.
We have experienced practitioners at each clinic, so rest assured that our therapists at Colaz are thoroughly trained for the best results.
