Removal of pigmented moles

When deciding whether to remove an undesirable mole, you have two options. Some moles can be easily removed using a laser. Such procedure has many advantages, in particular it is quick and allows for minimum recovery time. After such procedure, you can simply return to work because there is no pain or complications.

The most important thing when removing moles using a laser is that they first must be examined by a specialized physician, i.e. a dermatovenereologist.

Not all moles can be removed using a laser. Some must be excised and sent for expert assessment to find out whether everything is okay or not. Time plays a very important role in such cases!

Only early detected skin cancer – melanoma – has a chance for favourable future.

About the procedure

At the visit agreed the physician firstly examines moles using a digital or manual dermoscope. If she decides that the mole should better be surgically removed, she discussed it with you and agrees with you on the term of the next visit.

The entire procedure is the following: the mole and the surrounding area are disinfected, local anaesthesia is applied, surgical excision is performed and the wound is closed with stitches.

The number of stitches corresponds to the size of the mole. The tissue removed is sent to a specialized department for examination. You will be informed about the result as soon as it becomes available.

After about 7 days, you come for a check-up examination with the removal of the stitches. During these days and the following weeks, it is necessary to avoid strenuous activity to allow for skin healing. Also, remember that the skin is thin in locations where the union occurred and that skin tension could lead to scarring.

We use evaporation lasers used to remove varied types of skin growths anywhere on the body, including pedunculated fibromas, some types of moles, senile warts and skin pigmentation, scars, viral warts, small fibrous tumours, fat deposits on eyelids (xanthelasmas) or thickening of nose skin (rhinophyma) in patients with rosacea.

It is not necessary to sew the wound, it heals like a normal burn in about a week with a scab. When it falls off, it is necessary to protect the spot against the sun rays with creams with a high-UV protection factor to prevent the occurrence of undesirable pigmentation. Due to excellent aesthetic results, the laser is very helpful in removing lesions not only from the face but also on the back or the chest, which are locations with an increased risk of unsightly scars after the classical surgical treatment. A special indication is wrinkle correction - vaporizing laser treatment leads to collagen remodelling and smoothing of the skin. It is applied both to individual locations and to entire face.
