Skin imperfections such as moles and cysts can appear anywhere on the body which, although harmless the majority of the time, can make you feel self-conscious and harm your self-esteem. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we have a range of treatments to remove these with minimal scarring.
Like all of our treatments, we give a free consultation to assess the severity of the mole, cyst or skin tag and determine the best course of action. We may send a sample of it to a laboratory for histology testing so any abnormal cells can be detected early but in the vast majority of occasions skin imperfections are harmless.
The main types of treatment are-
Hyfrecater treatment- A low-powered piece of medical apparatus that destroys tissue. This only takes a few minutes and is used for a variety of purposes including the removal of warts, moles and skin tags.
Shave excision- Most often used on moles and skin tags, this involves using a dermablade to shave the mole from the skin. It leaves a small superficial wound but does not require any stitches. We cauterise the area to control any bleeding and healing only takes a week or two.
Ellipse excision- This is usually used on cysts and deep moles as it involves making an incision to remove them completely. We close the wound with stitches and the treatment takes around 20-30 minutes.
Prior to treatment we will administer a local anaesthetic so you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure and afterwards will discuss aftercare. If you take care of the area correctly there will be absolutely minimal scarring, if any. Contact us today if you have a mole, wart or other skin lesion you would like to see gone so you can show your skin with confidence.
