Mole Removal & Treatment
Mole Removal - This common condition means that everyone in the world has
at least one mole with some sporting up to 40 moles. While
many people with moles just put up with them, others find
them a bit of a nuisance when they catch on clothing or jewellery
or even unattractive if they appear in unsuitable areas. If
this is the case, people will want to go in for mole removal.
Moles are normally brown or dark spots in the skin and they
can be flat or raised. Sometimes moles can be flesh colored.
They are usually easily identified. Sun exposure is partly
responsible for the appearance of moles. Although the majority
of moles are harmless, you need to be aware of any sudden
changes in the moles on your face or body and consult a doctor
or dermatologist, if you are concerned, for advice and possible
mole removal. The changes you need to look out for are in
size, shape, color, moles that appear after the age of 20
plus any moles that bleed, itch or become painful. There are
several options open to those who wish to go for mole treatment.
Removing moles can be done through:
- Use of natural products, essential oils, to dry the skin
and cells out and cause the mole to flake away. An example
of a product that is popular for users experiencing skin moles
is H-Moles by Healing Natural Oils.
- Laser treatment which is suitable for shallow moles as well
as those small and flat moles and those that are relatively
newly developed. Although this method can be expensive, it
requires no anesthetic and is virtually painless. However,
sometimes the mole can return. A mild intensity laser beam
is used to burn off the mole.
- Surgery where the mole is cut out and the wound stitched.
A local anesthetic would be required and there may be some
pain. This method is suitable for larger moles.
- Removal with simple cutting where the doctor takes a scalpel
and shaves the mole off flush with the skin. An electrical
instrument is then used to cauterize the area and a topical
antibiotic placed on the wound and bandaged. A local anesthetic
is not necessary and the wound needs to be looked after carefully
to ensure effective healing.
- Cryotherapy is where liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the
mole which is then lanced away. A further cut may have to
be made depending on the how far the mole has infiltrated
- Topical application of a natural healing product which draws
out the moles with no burning or skin irritation and takes
2 to 6 weeks to effect this mole removal.
One of the most common problems after mole removal by surgery
is that a scar could then appear in its place. Although you
might want to remove moles for cosmetic reasons, you should
be aware that every such removal may result in a scar. Discuss
this with your doctor or dermatologist before you decide which
option for mole treatment to pursue.
There are many home remedies which have been used through
the years which can also be tried for mole removal and in
most cases entail the use of herbal salves and poultices.
Whatever you decide, there is a suitable mole treatment for
