Before you decide to go ahead, Skin and Laser Clinic will offer you a thorough one-to-one medical consultation with a doctor who specialises in mole removal procedures. Treating moles after they have been properly analysed is a simple and quick procedure. The laser energy is entirely converted into rapid vaporization of tissue water which results immediately in the ablation of tissue. The surface of the skin tissue which is diseased or otherwise damaged can be removed in ultra-thin layers with practically no effect on the surrounding tissue. The new skin layers that form are smooth and regular. The therapy itself is simple, fast and accurate. The treatment is painless or it may cause some light discomfort. The Er. YAG Laser causes a superficial wound to the skin that takes 7-10 days to heal. However, if the mole is hairy, the Erbium:YAG laser will not remove the hairs and these may have to be dealt with later using our hair removal Laser. Consultation, imaging of the mole and surgical removal can all be done during one visit, in less than one hour.
