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 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.

What happens during the procedure?

Our senior doctor, Dr Maini will administer some local anaesthetic to numb the area being treated. 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.

FAQs

Laser mole removal prices start from £450.00 upwards. The price of your mole removal depends on size, quantity, and essentially what you’d like to achieve from your treatment. If your mole can’t be treated with a laser you will be told in your consultation with Dr Maini and offered other alternative treatments.

Each subsequent mole costs only £100. If you have more than one mole you would like removing, we can discuss this with you during consultation.

Once you have seen Dr Maini for your consultation you should have a clear indication of how much your treatment should cost.

We will inject some local anaesthetic beneath the mole to ensure the remainder of the procedure is as pain-free as possible.

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.

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.

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
  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Tenderness
  • In some mole removal cases scarring

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. The best thing to do is to book in for a consultation with Dr Maini and he can advise you on whether removing a mole is the best option for you.

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.
