Laser Mole Removal Recovery

Laser mole removal is a fantastic treatment for people who want to remove lesions on the face and body.

This procedure gives people the option to safely remove unwanted growths and help them achieve flawless, beautiful skin. Laser mole removal treatments can substantially improve unwanted surface imperfections. Below we discuss the pros and cons of laser mole removal treatments.

Pros

  • Laser mole-removal treatments are minimally invasive. They require no downtime, no incisions, and no surgery.
  • Lasers can target moles with ease and precision.
  • Treatments are highly effective, and the surrounding tissue is left intact.
  • Laser mole-removal treatments leave minimal scarring, making them an ideal treatment for people who want discreet scarring on their mole treatment sites.

Cons

  • Deep-rooted moles are not ideal lesions to be removed by lasers due to the abundant supply of blood flow, requiring surgical intervention to minimize trauma to the area.
  • Suspicious skin growths must be assessed by a dermatologist for cancerous properties before laser removal.
  • Larger moles are sometimes not ideal for laser procedures. A surgical process will remove the mole completely versus multiple laser treatments, which can end up costing more time and money.

What to Expect from Laser Mole-Removal Treatments

Laser mole removal treatments offer cost-effective methods of removing moles for people who are not keen on having their skin growths surgically excised. Surgical intervention can cause undesirable scarring in addition to substantial costs.

Laser mole removal also provides patients with fewer risks for infection because of the sterilization properties of the laser. Treatments involve minimal injury to the skin around the mole, causing the precise ablation of only the required tissue affected by the mole.

Laser mole removal tends to heal very nicely with a scar that can be further resurfaced and treated to achieve favourable scarring on the skin.

Recovery After Laser Mole Removal Treatments

Recovery from laser mole removal is a quick, straightforward process. The treated area of the mole will be irritated for the first few days with visible symptoms of redness, mild swelling, and sometimes bleeding. A scab will form over the mole, which will eventually fall off on its own. The treatment site will initially appear as a dark colour that will gradually lighten up over the course of several months. After the scab has fallen off, it is very important for patients to protect the fresh skin that is exposed by daily applying sunscreen that contains an SPF of at least 50 to the treated area.

Sometimes after the scab from the mole has been removed, the surface of the skin may appear depressed in the area where the mole was originally located. Further treating the site of the eradicated mole with resurfacing lasers like CO2 or erbium laser can significantly improve the surface quality and texture of the skin and surrounding areas.

If you have an unwanted mole that you would like to remove, booking a consultation at Dr. Torgerson’s clinic would be your first step. Contact our clinic if you are interested in removing moles that you no longer want to live with. Beautiful, flawless skin is attainable with the help of lasers!
