At Asterie Clinic, we offer both laser mole removal and radio frequency mole removal. Both options are the preferred options for minimal scarring mole removal, as we’re able to, in conjunction with our team of experts, remove moles layer by layer. This is a huge advantage in our process, that allows us to get you a smoother result, as we carefully chip away at the mole until it is flush with the surface of the skin, making the process seamless. Radio frequency mole removal is also a great option of mole removal as it allows for minimal bleeding and precise mole removal. It is the preferred option for larger moles that are significantly raised above the surface of the skin.
Both laser and radio frequency can also be used for the removal of skin tags – the small bumps or lumps on your skin that look similar to moles, but are more wrinkled. Occasionally we will combine both radio frequency and laser mole removal to smoothly debulk a large mole with minimal bleeding. This enables us to then complete the job with a precise laser to get the smoothest end result, meaning that your moles, skin tags, and other unwanted features will be removed until it looks like they were never there. Another specialisation for us here at Asterie Clinic.
As mole removal is done under local anaesthetic it is a painless procedure once numbed. Mole removal is typically permanent as we address all the cells that lead to the growth of these funny little bumps. However on occasion, mole cells hidden beneath the surface of the skin will start to regrow leading to a mole recurrence in the same area and typically of the same size as well. Generally speaking, it is best to treat these once you notice the mole starting to regrow. This gives the best chance of permanently getting rid of the mole with minimal scarring.
Moles (melanocytic nevus) are raised pigmented lesions of the skin that consist of collections of melanocytes. At Asterie Clinic, we can remove them through a surgery that uses radio waves to gently cut and remove tissue.
Reduced bleeding, reduced chance of scarring and fine control are just some of the benefits. This is great for aesthetically important areas such as the face.
We do not offer this service at Asterie but would refer suspicious looking moles to a dermatologist for removal or evaluation. While this would permanently remove a mole, the risk of scarring is significantly higher. Alternative options such as mole and mole border excision with sutures are the preferred options for riskier moles that look cancerous or precancerous. If you have noticed a mole or wart on your skin that has changed colour, shape, and size, please consult a dermatologist or general practitioner urgently, so that they can do a mole map and see if it is malignant or benign. It is imperative that you get to a doctor straight away so that they can diagnose it and operate if necessary.
There is no physical downtime with mole removal. Once the wound is healed, there may be some redness but there should be nothing that would stop you from returning to normal activities.
Radiosurgery uses radio waves to cut tissue with a high frequency alternating current. This allows the fine cutting of the skin around moles without bleeding and damage to the surrounding skin. Radiosurgical mole removal also has a low chance of scarring. Asterie Clinic does not treat suspicious looking moles (irregular borders, irregular pigmentation) which have an increased risk of being cancerous. We only remove low risk moles for aesthetic reasons.
The procedure is done under local anaesthesia and should not cause any pain. The skin around the mole is made numb by injecting anaesthesia under the mole.
