London Mole Removal: The London Cosmetic Clinic is a renowned mole removal centre. So if you suffer from unsightly moles and want to banish them for good – this blog post is a must read. In this piece, we’ll explore the different mole removal methods we offer our patients – and the results you can expect post-treatment.

What Are Moles?

Moles are benign growths that appear across the body. They can vary in shape, size and colour – but are usually small with a brown pigment. Sometimes, moles can be unsightly and be a source of embarrassment.

How Are Moles Removed?

Here at The London Cosmetic Clinic, we use a variety of methods to remove unsightly moles. They include:

Shave Excision: This method involves utilising a dermablade to remove the mole parallel to the surface of the skin. The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes and leaves a small wound where the mole once was. The wound usually takes between one to two weeks to heal. It’s the most common way to remove small moles.

Elliptical Excision: For larger moles, we can use a method called Elliptical Excision. This approach makes a deep excision that removes the complete mole. As the excision is deeper, the wound does require stitches, which are either dissolvable or non-dissolvable depending on the site of removal. An Elliptical Excision takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete.

Hyfrecator Treatment: The hyfrecator is a device that emits electro-pulses to destroy tissue. It can be utilised to remove moles, leaving a small superficial wound. Usually, this treatment only takes a couple of minutes to complete.

Getting Started

Prior to treatment, you’ll need to have a consultation with a member of our team. During this consultation, we’ll discuss your medical history and treatment expectations.

Recovery Time & Cost

After your mole removal treatment, you can resume your normal daily activities immediately. As with any lesion removal procedure, you can expect minimal scarring local to the location of the removed mole. The cost of a London mole removal treatment starts from just £100.
