Moles on face? Is laser mole removal safe? Laser Mole Removal uses light energy to break down the pigment within the mole. Laser mole removal is a good option for removing a mole from the face as there is less risk of scarring.

There are many kind of moles and it is important to recognise unusual characteristics of an abnormal mole. At HEMAC aesthetic, the doctor looks at a mole though a sophisticated lens called a dermatoscope. This differentiates the normal from the dysplastic moles.

How HEMAC Aesthetic treats moles?

If a mole is suspicious, there are several steps to determine its nature.

A small sample is taken and evaluated under a microscope. A proper excision with specific margin of clearance is performed under local anaesthetic.

A harmless mole can be removed/lightened from any part of the body with a focus on leaving minimal scarring by shaving or using a laser machine- Alexandrite 850nm.

How many sessions would I need?

A shave biopsy of a raised mole only required one session.

A laser treatment may require between 3-5 sessions fortnightly.

Are there any downtime?

No. Patient can return back to work on the day. A scab forms and falls off within 7 days.

When Can I have another treatment?

Fortnightly as required.
