Laser Mole Removal for Men
Mole removal technique using Radiosurgery
Having performed hundreds of procedures over the years we are experts at laser mole removal techniques and consequently, it is one of the most popular treatments here at Zenith.
Our laser mole removal treatment is available at both our Nottingham and London clinics.
What is a mole?
The medical term for a mole is ‘Intradermal Naevus’. This translates to mean a lump within the layers of skin. They can appear in all different shapes, sizes and textures and are usually completely harmless, however we may not always find them attractive to look at.
Why do men tend to have their moles removed?
There are a variety of different reasons why men normally opt to have mole removal including:
- Mole catching on clothing.
- Mole placed in a prominent area, for example on the face.
- Mole that catches whilst shaving or while combing your hair/beard.
- To improve self-confidence.
If a mole is changing colour or growing rapidly it should be urgently assessed by a doctor.
What happens before the procedure?
You will meet with our doctor before the procedure, which will help you to feel comfortable and safe. During your initial consultation the doctor will be able to advise what treatment he believes is best for you to give you your desired outcome. After this consultation you will be ready to book your procedure.
How do we treat moles in men?
What happens during the Laser Mole Removal for Men ?
Our senior doctor, Dr Maini will administer some local anaesthetic to numb the area being treated. He will then perform the removal using the radiosurgery machine. The machine then emits ultra-high frequency waves into the handheld electrode which, when applied to the mole, excites the water within the cells of the mole causing them to vaporise. These cells then seal themselves with no blood, and no damage tissue is left behind. Most mole removal procedures only require one visit and on average take just 15-20 minutes.
Recovery and Aftercare
You may wish to take the day off work depending on the size of the lesion but should be able to return to work the following day. You will be advised on the best aftercare at the time over the treatment. Recovery should take one to four weeks depending on the size of the mole and you must wait 10-15 days to apply makeup to the area as the skin needs to heal properly. Dr Maini is available via WhatsApp for advice following your procedure should you need him.

When do men normally have Laser Mole Removal?
Laser Mole Removal works best for treating viral warts or a verruca, sebaceous hyperplasia or other small lesions that are less likely to scar on fair skin.
We prefer not to use it for most moles as the heat from the laser makes the skin much more likely to scar. We also like to remind our male patients that on darker skin, brown staining for months is quite common.
We prefer for most moles, to use Radiosurgery Mole Removal.
Will the mole grow back after the removal for men?
Most facial procedures only require one visit. The effect of the procedure is long-lasting although of course there can be no guarantee that the lesion will not recur. Some moles have a deep element and so recurrence in these cases is possible. A repeat procedure at a later date, in some cases, may be required.
Do you offer body and facial mole removal?
Radiosurgery laser mole removal is perfect, for men, both the face and body. You can have a mole removed from anywhere on your body. Dr Maini has years of experience removing moles from the face and sensitive and hard to reach places.
What health concerns are related to moles?
One of the main concerns in regards to moles is whether the mole has become cancerous. The vast majority of moles are not dangerous. Moles that are more likely to be cancer are those that look different than other existing moles or those that first appear after the age 25. If you notice changes in a mole’s colour, height, size, or shape, you should have a doctor evaluate it. You should also have moles checked if they bleed, ooze, and itch or become tender/painful.
The following ABCDE’s are important characteristics to consider when examining moles. If a mole displays any of these signs listed below, have it checked immediately by a Doctor/Dermatologist as it could be cancerous.
- Asymmetry- One half of the mole does not match the other half.
- Border- The border or edges of the mole are ragged, blurred or irregular.
- Colour- The colour of the mole is not the same throughout or has shades of tan, brown, black, blue, white or red.
- Diameter- The diameter of a mole is larger than the eraser of a pencil.
- Evolution- The mole is changing in size, shape and colour.
Can I get mole removal on finance?
If the cost of your treatment plan is priced over £2,500 finance options are available but we do not offer finance for treatments below this amount.
What are the side effects or risks of laser mole removal for men?
As with any procedure there are potential risks and side effects. Our senior Doctor, Dr Maini, is highly experienced and will talk you through any side effects and make sure you feel comfortable before the removal.
- Minor swelling
- In some mole removal cases scarring
Is mole removal suitable for all men?
This procedure is ideal for any raised lesion on the skin-especially the face, due to the superior healing it offers. In general, most moles are good candidates for removal, although if you have any suspicious moles they may need to be removed by a dermatologist. We recommend booking in for a consultation with Dr Maini and then he can advise you on whether removing a mole is the best option for you.
Can I remove my mole myself?
No, we would not advise that anyone attempts to remove a mole, wart or lesion without seeking help from a professional. We have unfortunately seen many nasty scars caused by people who have attempted mole removal at home.
My mole is changing. What should I do?
Make an appointment to see your GP as soon as possible. They will make an assessment and potentially refer you to a hospital. We advise not to remove a mole that may be a potential, only by an NHS Consultant Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon.
Does it hurt to remove moles?
We will inject some local anaesthetic beneath the mole to ensure the remainder of the procedure is as pain-free as possible. Laser removal is described as feeling the flick of an elastic band but because you will be numbed in the area, you shouldn’t feel much pain at all.
How long does it take to heal after a Mole Removal procedure?
In most cases, we would remove the dressing after 2 days when the mole is then allowed to dry and scab. Most scabs will naturally fall off in 2-4 weeks, leaving a pink or red mark that will then fade and disappear over the course of 12 months.
