Mole Removal

Mole Removal Toronto

Mole removal is one of the most commonly performed procedures at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic, and is generally fast and painless*. Mole, also known as nevus (dermatology), is a natural growth of human skin composed of pigmented cells (melanocytes). Most people have at least one mole. The majority of moles are benign.

Moles (nevi) can be small or large, single or grouped, flat or raised, bare or hairy, often coloured brown, darker brown, or black. They may appear on any part of the human body. Some moles are desirable as beauty marks, while others can be cosmetically bothersome.

Types of Moles

  • Congenital Moles - are moles that are present at birth. Only about 1% of children are born with moles.
  • Acquired Moles - are moles that appear during childhood or in early adult life, possibly caused by sun exposure, pregnancy or certain steroid drugs.
  • Atypical Moles- also referred to as dysplastic nevi or Clark's nevi, are acquired moles that are usually larger than common moles, with irregular and indistinct borders, often with a variety of colours. While atypical moles are considered to be potential risks of melanoma, most of them actually never become cancerous. Though the removal of all atypical moles is not necessary, individuals with family history of atypical moles should have their moles checked regularly, and protect the moles from sun exposure using sunscreen and clothing.

Options

Mole Removal Treatments

In most cases, a mole removal treatment is not necessary, but there are still some moles that are removed for cosmetic or health reasons. The method chosen for your mole removal will generally depend on the type and characteristics of your moles.

Natural Mole Removal

A variety of natural mole removal creams are widely available, but it is important that you consult a doctor before trying to remove your moles at home. Unfortunately, about 90% of our patients with moles are those who have had disappointing experience with mole removal of home remedies. Some found that they simply didn't work; some received unsightly scarring.

Cyrotherapy Mole Removal

Cyrotherapy is a treatment that removes moles by freezing them using liquid nitrogen. The results of these mole removal procedures depend greatly on the performer's skill and expertise. Skin burning or scarring could result from the treatment.

Excision Mole Removal

Excision is a surgical solution for moles, usually used to remove moles that are potentially cancerous. The doctor may numb the treated area with local anesthesia and then remove the mole with a medical blade or incision. In the case of atypical moles, the doctor may remove a margin of surrounding skin as well. Since excision treatment usually leaves some degree of scarring, many patients have had disappointing experience with excision mole removal.

Laser Mole Removal

Laser or IPL is usually used for removing flat and pigmented moles. This method of mole removal may require about 3 treatments to make the mole invisible. The laser beam or pulsed light is selectively absorbed by the pigment of the mole, which is then destroyed and shed away*.

Electrocautery Mole Removal

Electrocautery is a procedure that uses light electrical current to burn the mole off, reaching only the outermost layers of the skin (so scarring is not a problem). Approximately 1-2 treatments may be needed. Local anesthetic is applied to the treated area before the procedure. Compared to cyrotherapy mole removal, removing moles with electrocautery is easier to perform and control, so it can be safer, and more efficient*.
