Laser Mole Removal, Facial Mole Removal, Cosmetic Mole Removal

Most moles that appear before the age of 30 are benign and are removed for cosmetic reasons, particularly those on the face or neck. The Ellman Surgitron is used for laser mole removal. The Ellman removes body and facial moles without cutting or stitches to remove the lesion without leaving any visible scarring. The removal of a cosmetic mole differs from removing a mole or lesion that has changed or grown. The latter requires excision at a Skin Cancer clinic or Dermatologist. Skin tags, seborrheic keratosis, and other benign skin growths can also be removed with the Ellman. The first step is to schedule an appointment with one of our Doctors. This consultation costs $80, but it is refundable if you proceed with treatment. Call us on 07 3350 5447 to book a consultation with Dr Andreina or Book Online.

Laser Mole Removal Steps

The first step is to schedule an appointment with Dr Andrienna. Most people decide to remove large moles and other skin growths because they are either self-conscious about their appearance (as is common with large moles on the face) or irritated by rubbing on clothing. However, our doctors assess your suitability for the procedure, and there is a consultation fee of $80 for this.

  • They will advise whether the lesion needs to be examined by a Skin Cancer Doctor or if it can be removed with the Ellman.
  • If you proceed with the treatment at the appointment, an $80 consultation fee is deducted from the procedure cost.

Cosmetic Mole Removal Procedure.

  • A local anaesthetic is injected into the lesion to numb it during the procedure.
  • A small handheld tool is then used to shave the lesion away.
  • Radiofrequency shaving should be completely painless.
  • Following the procedure, a dressing will be applied.

Laser Mole Removal Recovery and Results.

  • The treated area should be covered for the duration of the healing period. Generally, this is  5-7 days for the facial mole removal and 10-14 days for the rest of the body.
  • Generally, only one treatment is required. However, sometimes a second and very rarely a third treatment is performed. 

The first step is to schedule an appointment with one of our Doctors. This consultation costs $80, but it is refundable if you proceed with treatment. Call us on 07 3350 5447 to book a consultation with Dr Andreina or Shadi or Book Online.

Will Laser Mole Removal Leave a Scar?

It is nearly impossible to remove a lesion without a scar, but the Ellman Surgitron aims to leave an imperceptible scar. There may be some slight colour lightening in the cleared area, but this is usually unnoticeable after a few months. This is especially important for facial mole removal.

  • Following the shave excision, there is a shallow sore that is covered until it heals.
  • As the healing process continues, this will be redder than the surrounding skin after the dressing is removed.
  • Exceptional cases need to be considered, including people with darker skin types or risk of keloid scarring. (see below)

Side Effects of Body & Facial Mole Removal

There are risks with any procedure, but they are generally uncommon unless you have specific skin types.

  • There is a Minor incidence of infection after cosmetic mole removal, which is usually managed by keeping the wound clean until it heals.
  • You will develop this after the procedure if you have darker skin and previously experienced dark pigmentation in scar areas. If you are at risk of pigmentation, our Doctor may advise you to use prescription creams after the procedure to reduce the risk. This is particularly important for facial mole removal because of the visibility.
  • There is also the risk of keloid scarring, which can be reduced by wearing continuous dressing after the procedure and using silicon gel after initial healing.
  • Because keloid scarring does not commonly occur on the face, we do not expect keloids with facial mole removal.

Laser Mole Removal

The Ellman Surgitron is also known as laser mole removal. However, it is not a laser but rather radiofrequency cutting. Laser mole removal can be accomplished using a variety of lasers that ablate or cut the surface tissue. CO2 lasers, erbium lasers, and KTP lasers are examples of these. However, the Ellman Surgitron is regarded as the gold standard in cosmetic mole removal. Our Doctors also perform skin tag removal and treat seborrhoeic keratosis. The first step is to schedule an appointment with one of our Doctors. This consultation costs $80, but it is refundable if you proceed with treatment. Call us on 07 3350 5447 to book a consultation with Dr Andreina or Book Online.
