Moles or other skin formations on the face or other parts of the body can cause aesthetic dissatisfaction with the appearance, and sometimes very serious health problems when they become angry. If skin formations on the face, hands or other parts of the body cause you discomfort, then we suggest removing them. One of the treatments is laser removal of moles, warts and other skin growths. It is an effective, safe and painless procedure that eliminates unwanted skin formations.
Who is this procedure suitable for?
After evaluation and examination of the skin growths, the procedure can be performed on men and women of all ages who wish to remove angiomas, warts, papillomas or other skin growths. Laser removal of a mole can only be done after it has been fully examined to ensure that it is not atypical and has no risk of cancer. The removal of derivatives is not performed in pregnant, lactating women, in the presence of temperature, fever, skin inflammation or infection in the treated area. Surgical removal of a mole or other growth is usually performed when there is a risk of skin cancer, the growth is complex, or there is constant trauma. Moles or other skin formations must be examined with a dermatoscope before surgery, and only then is it decided whether surgery is possible and necessary. Surgical removal of a mole or other formation is not necessary if it does not pose any threat and can be removed by simpler means, such as a laser.
What is the procedure?
The doctor precisely targets the laser pulses on the skin formation and destroys its tissue without harming the surrounding tissues. The cells of the formation absorb the rays, begin to decompose and disappear from the surface. In this way, the formation decays, and the aesthetic appearance of the skin improves. Before operating on a mole or other formation, local or general anesthesia is performed. The skin formation is cut out within the boundaries of healthy tissue, and the wound is sutured. The operation is carried out precisely, in an effort to reduce the risk of scarring. If there is a need, the removed formation is sent for histomorphological examination.
How long is the procedure?
The duration of removal of derivatives depends on the complexity, the amount to be removed, but usually lasts 10-30 minutes.
