Laser mole removal involves using resurfacing beams to clear smaller moles. Raised moles can be effectively shaved away
London (PRWEB UK) 30 September 2011
Sk:n Clinics experts urge mole sufferers to have moles checked out by an expert, to reduce risk of skin cancer. With the summer weather coming to a close, Autumn presents the perfect time to have moles reviewed by experts for risk of summer sun damage to the skin.
Although moles have been accepted and recognised as beauty marks for generations, not everyone agrees that they are a thing of beauty. Skin moles have also been perceived as ugly by society for centuries and were even associated with witchcraft in the 17th Century. While moles on skin are often harmless, moles that change over time and atypical moles can develop into a malignant melanoma or skin cancer. If left unchecked, a malignant melanoma can spread rapidly with potentially fatal consequences. Mole removal is a common procedure performed by professionals at sk:n clinics across the UK.
The professionals at sk:n clinics have been performing mole removal procedures for over 20 years. Moles can be removed using laser or surgical techniques with as little discomfort as possible. Laser mole removal involves using resurfacing beams to clear smaller moles. Raised moles can be effectively shaved away. This treatment requires a local anaesthetic as the mole is shaved off the skin surface using a surgical knife. The third option for mole removal is a surgical excision. This procedure is performed by a plastic surgeon under anaesthetic and involves cutting the mole out of the skin and expertly stitching the wound to minimise scarring.
While the professionals at sk:n clinics endeavour to make the mole removal process as painless as possible, after moles on skin have been removed, the skin may be sensitive for up to a week after the procedure. It is advisable to apply a high SPF sunscreen to the skin area to protect against sun damage for at least six months after a mole removal procedure.
