In the Australian climate, moles are very common and that is why Academy Face & Body Perth became a specialist in advanced mole removal procedures. Some moles are concerning and they require excision (cutting out) and being sent to the laboratory for microscopic review. Many moles, however, are not of any medical concern but rather are a cosmetic concern. These moles are usually raised, leading to a contour deformity as well as possibly being pigmented.
For this procedure the whole mole is not removed, rather it is shaved off flat with the skin. This removes the contour deformity and usually all of the pigment. Because the skin is cut through full thickness there is no need for stitches. The skin is given the chance to heal with minimal to no scar. If there is any concern with the mole, it can be sent for pathology examination.
