Mole Removal

Moles are coloured  spots on the skin that develops when pigment cells (melanocytes) grow in large numbers.  The medical term for moles is melanocytic nave and most adults can have numerous on their body. Although common moles may be present at birth, they usually appear later in childhood and increase during teenage years. Often also during pregnancy your moles often get darker and they can fade away completely from around the age of 50.

Shave Removal: Our surgeon can shave the moles as a method. Your moles that protrude from the skin can be shaved away under local anaesthetic. The procedure is carried out using a scalpel and is relatively straightforward and painless. A  mark may be left, which will fade in time.
Excision Removal: The other method our surgeon can use is via an excision. This procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and requires a small stitch in the skin. A small scar will be left, which will fade over time. Our Nurse will remove the stitch around 10 days after the procedure.
