Moles are a very common skin lesion that can occur in people of any age. Whilst they’re not usually harmful, if they’re in prominent places such as the face, then they can can cause people to be very self-conscious .
Advanced electrocautery (heat treatment) can be used to reduce/shrink moles very effectively, reducing them down to skin level, achieving a beautiful smooth appearance Advanced electrocautery uses electricity to create energy in the form of heat. A tiny needle is tapped over the surface of the mole as the current is applied. This reduces the moisture in the mole drying & shrinking the area.
The mole reduction treatment is tailored to your specific needs to provide you with an experience that’s comfortable and with minimum pain.
Mole reduction can take from 40 minutes to over an hour, depending on the size of the area that’s being treated. Individual moles may need more than one treatment, larger moles needing 3 or 4 treatments.
Side effects of electrocautery are usually very minimal and limited to some initial crusting & redness around the treated areas. The treated area may remain slightly pinker for a few weeks depending on the size of the mole & your skin type.
You’ll be fully advised on aftercare steps at your consultation.
