In the Australian climate, moles are very common. This is why Academy Face & Body Perth became a specialist in advanced mole removal procedures. Some moles are concerning and require excision (cutting out) as well as testing at a laboratory. Many moles, however, are not of any medical concern but are a cosmetic concern. These moles are usually raised, leading to a contour deformity as well as possible pigmentation. They can also cause irritation and discomfort by hooking onto clothing and other objects.
For this procedure, the whole mole is not removed but shaved off flat against the skin. This removes the contour deformity and usually all of the pigment. Because the mole is cut flat against the skin, there is no need for stitches. The skin is given the chance to heal with minimal to no scarring. If there is any concern about the mole, it can be sent for pathology examination.
