Mole Removal Treatment in Bangalore
Introduction – Laser Mole Removal Treatment
Many of us develop an increasing number of moles on our faces and body as we grow older. Some of these will have been present for many years, but others may only have recently appeared. The first step is of course to make sure of this. Conversations with a trained dermatologist for laser mole removal treatment can give basic clarity on what has appeared or otherwise over the years.
Our dermatologists at Vitals Skin and Hair Clinic typically use laser and surgical methods to remove moles. The laser should be suitable for those with treated or untreated moles, including pigmented moles. The laser is able to break down pores which can lower the risk of recurrence. This will vary from patient to patient, so a 2-3 month trial can be made. Sometimes further removal is required 1 month after the initial session. Usually, the procedure can be completed in minutes, and most patients are surprised to see their mole disappear in such a short amount of time.
If your mole is superficially located and raised, removal by excision is often the best option. This is because the dermal layer of the skin is left intact to allow the wound to heal slowly. The dermal layer can be closed with sutures. The wound will recover in about 1 week. Sutures will prevent the scar from ever becoming noticeable. Small linear scars are what usually results. The advantage of this method is that recurrence is extremely rare.
Mole removal will not leave you with a massive scar. The final look will depend on several factors, and we will aim to minimize the extent, but the procedure will be fairly uniform. There is a vast majority of patients are satisfied following their laser mole removal treatment.
A mole is a dark spot or skin irregularity that can be present at birth or can begin to appear over time in different shapes and sizes. They can appear on the skin of any part of the body like the face, arms, or chest area. They may appear in groups or can be alone too. Although in most cases, moles are harmless but many people prefer to remove them by the method of laser mole removal treatment for cosmetic and other reasons like:

Laser Mole Removal Treatment Removed by any of The Following Ways:
- Excision with or without stitches
- Shave removal using a scalpel blade without stitches

Procedure: The mole removal surgery is performed by a Dermatologist under local anesthesia. The choice of procedure depends upon the size and location of the mole.
Excision: The dermatologist uses a scalpel to cut the mole. In almost all cases, a border surrounding the mole is also excised to ensure that the mole is completely excised. This is followed by stitching the area and applying a bandage.
Shave removal: Dermatologist shaves off the mole using a scalpel or sharp razor slightly below the level of the skin. This is followed by cautery of the area to stop any bleeding and the wound is covered by the bandage. This simple procedure is less invasive and produces a less noticeable scar.
Laser excision: Laser can be used to remove superficial moles that are not deeply penetrated. After removing the mole, it may be sent to a laboratory for histopathology if it is suspected to be cancerous.
