What is a mole?
Moles are small bumps, or spots, known as pigmented nevi. It is hard to determine whether a mole might be dangerous for human health. And here is the main problem, because it is very difficult to distinguish an ordinary mole from one that we need to go to the doctor with. Therefore, if you notice a mole on your body that has irregular borders, uneven colour, changes shape, produces liquid or itches, you should go to a specialist, who will tell you whether and how you can get rid of the unwanted mole. We very often, however, focus on changes in our face, forgetting that it is also important to observe other parts of the body. Do not forget that moles do not like the sun and solarium visits. This increases the risk for developing cancer.
Laser mole removal
One of the most popular methods of moles removal is based on the use of the laser. This is an ideal alternative for people who have birthmarks, moles, or warts, and at the same time wish to avoid surgery. Before using the laser, the patient is anesthetized locally, so the treatment is a lot more comfortable and painless experience. One of the most positive results of the use of the laser is that it does not cause scars and swelling. Another advantage is that it is a non-contact treatment. Thus we are not at risk of HIV infection or hepatitis. Immediately after the procedure, you can return to everyday life, bathing, working, etc. All about our plastic surgery procedures you can find on our page.
Surgical removal of moles
Another method is the surgical removal of the previously mentioned moles. This procedure involves the removal of skin lesions. However, this procedure is much less pleasant and convenient for the patient. Although performed under local anesthesia, it leaves a scar. Moreover, the stitches are applied. Very important are fairly frequent visits to the doctor so he can tell if the wound heals in such a way as it should. If there are no complications after a certain time, you can remove the stitches. The advantage of this method is that the tissue is removed the material submitted for histopathological examination which allows for detection of cancer, many inflammatory and degenerative diseases.
