Radio Surgical Mole and Skin Lesion Removal
Moles and skin lesions can be unsightly especially when on exposed parts of our body , however they can now be easily be removed with minimal risk of scarring using a new revolutionary method known as radio surgery. The machine used in this method to treatment emits ultra high frequency radio waves which literally vaporise the cells of the mole but leaves the healthy skin cells below with little or no tissue damage to allow very quick healing process and minimal risk of any scarring. Radio Surgery is ideal for any raised lesion on the skin, especially the face, due to the superior healing it offers.
All patients initially have a consultation and diagnosis of the skin lesion involving dermoscopy to exclude cancerous lesions. Treatment can be done at the same visit and usually only takes 20- 30 minutes. The mole removal procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic and is virtually pain free. A small dressing may be applied for a few days and most people can return to work the same day.
During the first week the there will be a small scab at the site of the excision, which quickly progresses to healthy new pink/red skin. Within the first few months this new skin quickly takes on the pigmentation of the surrounding skin making it virtually impossible to see where the mole or skin lesion was before treatment.
