There are various benefits to this procedure, including:
• Reducing skin irritation that can occur when certain moles rub against clothing or jewelry.
• Achieving smoother, clearer skin.
• Enhancing appearance and improving self-esteem.
Mole removal procedure:
The lesion/mole is first prepped with isopropyl alcohol, injected with a small amount of lidocaine 2% (anesthetic), and then painlessly removed using a radio-surgery electrode*. During the procedure, the treated area is cauterized as the lesion is being removed. This means that the treated area is free of bleeding and therefore ready to be prepped with a triple antibiotic ointment and a band-aid immediately afterwards.
