Mole removal surgery is the process to remove a mole or dart on your face or body. A mole is considered a ‘beauty spot’ in many cultures across the world, including in India. It certainly adds significantly to your attractiveness when it is tiny and placed in the proper position on your face. However, when moles or warts are abnormally large, they can risk developing complications and need to be removed effectively.
Mole removal and wart removal are cosmetic procedures that aim to reduce the visibility and size or eradicate the mole or wart.
Moles are formed from abnormally pigmented skin. These are benign patches of skin, which are considerably different from the surrounding skin, and range from pink and reddish-tan, brown to even black.
Warts, on the other hand, are caused by viruses. The virus infects the skin to drive abnormal skin growth, resulting in a raised, discolored skin patch. Although most warts follow a short lifecycle and disappear on their own, there are some cases where special treatment may be required to remove them.
This is mainly required to remove abnormally large-sized moles, especially those that are not located on the visible part of your body, such as the face, hands, arms, neck, etc.
The cosmetic surgeon will use a surgical method to carefully remove the affected skin and then use fine sutures to close the incisions.
Laser treatment is an effective way to remove even smaller-sized moles effectively. The precision and higher power allow experienced cosmetic specialists to use this beam of laser light and heat the mole tissue.
This heat generated using laser light helps burn off the targeted tissue without damaging the surrounding healthy skin.
Microdermabrasion is a physical treatment to remove small to medium-sized moles. This requires using a small device with a rotatable head covered with a rough material. The cosmetic specialist/surgeon uses this device to gently remove the upper layers and work their way down to the lower affected layer and help to remove the mole.
Wart Removal Procedures
There are specific different techniques used to remove warts successfully. These are some of the most commonly-used cosmetic procedures to remove warts:
This innovative cosmetic technique uses a freezing agent, such as liquid nitrogen to freeze warts. The shallow temperature tends to destroy the skin cells, which form warts.
This is another innovative and new technique to remove warts effectively. A particular handheld electrical device is used in this. The cosmetic surgeon will carefully stimulate the tissue cells forming the wart using electrical energy.
The electrical energy helps generate heat which eventually kills the cells and destroys the wart efficiently.
A detailed consultation with our expert cosmetic specialists will help you determine which type of mole and wart removal procedure is best suited to your case.
