A mole is a brown or black, flat or raised growth on the skin and as many other common skin lesions such as freckles, and skin tags, it is usually non-cancerous. An adult can have between 10-40 moles and they can be congenital or appear during the first 30 years of life.
Despite the fact that some of them are considered beauty marks and were quite fashionable, nowadays as the tendency is to have a smooth, clear skin many people want them removed once for all.
There are many ways to remove a mole, some of which can be performed at home but that not always offer the desired results as they may leave scars, burns or just a red spot instead of the mole. The best alternative is radiosurgery, performed at Renew Skin & Health Clinic by our doctor specialists. It does not require hospitalization; it is fast, scar-free and painless.
How does radiosurgery work?
Radiosurgery is the only mole removal method which emits radio waves at a high frequency in order to excite the water within the cells that it attacks, making it evaporate and thus, forcing the facial mole to vaporize itself. The procedure does minimal damage to the tissue, the place is cauterized during the procedure and it takes between 7-10 days for the skin to regenerate. The treated area will form a light brown scab which should not be scratched or picked because it will fall off itself. The area will change over the next 6 months.
Why should you have a facial mole removed?
Obviously, beauty is the reason. Most facial moles are unaesthetic, especially for women which desire a clear, smooth baby face. The color, the size and the hair which can sometimes grow from facial moles, tend to lead to a low self-esteem, they cause rashes and for men, they make the shaving harder and uncomfortable. Although in the 1950’s and 60’s a facial mole was a beauty mark if positioned in certain spots, in nowadays society it is not such a trend anymore.
If you want to benefit from a facial mole removal procedure with radiosurgery, you should book an appointment for a specialized private consultation to see one of our doctor specialists here at Renew Skin & Health Clinic, who will give you all the necessary information about this non-surgical cosmetic procedure. Although most of them are not cancerous, the moles should be examined first and only after that can you proceed to the radiosurgery treatment that will provide you with a mole-free, smooth and spotless skin.
