Mole Removal in Northampton
Advances in technology mean that there are now a number of different options for mole removal in Northampton.
Mole treatments are safe, effective and painless, leaving you with minimum scarring and improved skin.
Moles are small growths of pigmented skin on the body and most commonly found on the arms, legs and torso. Moles are usually harmless but could be a sign of skin cancer so it is best to get them checked out, particularly if they have changed in some way, for example got bigger, changed shape or colour, or are painful.
Many people opt for mole removal because their moles are particularly noticeable or are causing a nuisance by catching on clothing and jewellery. If they are in a prominent place, such as your face, they may be causing you embarrassment.
The main methods of mole removal in Northampton are:
· mole excision which involves the surgical removal of the mole
· shave excision which is used to treat raised moles
· laser treatment.
A consultant will guide you on the best treatment, which will depend on the size and shape of the mole.
Shaving treatment involves levelling the mole to the surface under a local anaesthetic. This procedure leaves a small mark but does not require stitches. Surgical excision involves removing the mole and stitching the skin over the treated area and will be carried out by a plastic surgeon.
Mole removal by laser involves using the beam to break down the pigment in the skin. It is virtually painless although you may feel some discomfort.
After the treatment your skin will feel slightly sore and will be red for about a week, and you may need to keep it covered with a dressing. You will be advised to protect the treated area with a high SPF sunscreen for up to six months as the skin will be sensitive.
