The lesion is numbed using high-strength numbing cream. For larger moles, this is followed by a local anaesthetic injection using a very small needle. Once the area is numb, the procedure is virtually painless.
The Radio-wave or Laser device (whichever we choose to use) gently evaporates away the mole. There is usually no bleeding associated and since the skin is not cut there is no suturing required.
99% of cases heal without any scarring or discolouration.
Majority of raised skin lesions such as moles and skin tags do not grow back once they are removed non-surgically using Radiowave technique or ablative Lasers such as CO2 or Erbium Yag. However, some do grow back occasionally (less than 5%). This is because the human body has the ability to regenerate tissue.
It is impossible for a doctor to predict as to which moles or skin tags will grow back. A touch-up treatment can easily be performed to fix any recurring moles.
Note: Touch-up treatments for mole or skin tag removal are not free. We will inform you at the time of your treatment of any costs associated with future touch-ups in case you need them down the track.
At Medaesthetics®, we use the latest Radio-wave surgery, CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and erbium-glass laser ablation for removing localised, benign skin lesions (after clinically ruling out any risk of cancer).
Doctors at Medaesthetics® have successfully removed over 10,000 moles and skin tags in the past few years alone.
Note: Cosmetic medical procedures are generally not covered by private health insurance or by Medicare. All fees are discussed with you before the procedure. There are no hidden costs.
