If you are looking to remove your moles, there are several mole removal procedures that you can use; however, it is always best to talk to your dermatologist first in order to find the mole removal procedure that best works for you.
Once you have consulted with your dermatologist, you will find that there are five basic mole removal procedures that are available. These include: Natural remedies, Shaving, Laser Mole Removal, Incision with Cauterization and Incision with Stitches.
• DermaTrend Mole Removal – Your dermatologist will provide you with an exfoliating tool, which you will use to rub your skin tag or your mole. For 30 to 60 seconds, you will rub your mole up and down, side to side and then in a circular motion. Once you have done this, you will apply DermaTrend to your mole and then cover it with a non-plastic bandage overnight. This mole removal technique is quite effective and it is 100% natural.
• Shaving – As a result of how this mole removal procedure is performed, it should only be used for your benign moles. Your dermatologist will use a medical knife to shave the mole layer by layer until it is on the same level as your skin. The only part of the mole that will be left is the part under your skin; as such, if your mole is cancerous this procedure should not be performed as the cancer can continue to spread and grow under your skin.
• Laser Mole Removal – Although, this mole removal procedure has the least amount of scarring, it is not particularly effective. This is primarily due to the fact that day lasers are only capable of reaching a certain depth of your skin, as they are not powerful enough. As such, if you have large moles, the laser mole removal procedure is not ideal for you.
• Incision with Cauterization – This particular mole removal technique is most commonly used for face moles, and it has less scarring than incision with stitches. The procedure is done by burning the moles very close to the skin. As a result of the cauterization, infection is less likely to appear and the bleeding is quickly stopped.
• Incision with Stitches – Incision with stitches involves removing your moles by cutting out the mole itself, in addition to the surrounding areas of the mole. Once this is done, the wound is then stitched up and left to heal naturally. Although this mole removal procedure does leave a scar, it will eventually fade. If your mole is cancerous, it will most likely be removed using this method.
