Laser Treatment for Mole Removal Means No Invasive Surgery and No Scarring
A mole can be unattractive and lead to low self-esteem, especially if it is on the face or another prominent area of the body. It is common for someone with a prominent mole, also known as a nevus, to feel unattractive or self-conscious about their appearance. For these reasons many people choose to have the mole removed. There are a number of options for mole removal, however in many situations the removal can be invasive and lead to scarring.
One of the most popular cosmetic treatments available for a number of aesthetic purposes is laser procedures. P. Alexander Ataii M.D. has provided over 5000 laser treatments to date for people wanting to remove unsightly lesions on the face and body. The reason laser treatments are so popular for these types of cosmetic enhancements is because it is a non-invasive, safe, and now laser treatment is becoming the best way to remove unsightly moles.
When you utilize the effectiveness of laser treatments to remove moles, there are no scars. Previously mole removal meant going to a cosmetic surgeon to have the mole surgically removed, which resulted in stitches and a prominent scar, which can be as embarrassing as the mole itself. Laser treatment for mole removal is virtually painless and there is no need for stitches. Another benefit of laser treatment to remove a mole is, unlike surgery, there is no bleeding.
Laser treatment has a high success rate of effectively eliminating a flat, pigmented or raised mole. The procedure is extremely quick, in most situations you arrive at the clinic and are mole free in under thirty minutes. The area will scab over, so you will have to use caution when washing your face for a day or two, but other than the scab, there will be no noticeable signs that you have had the mole removed. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after leaving the office.
Both non-threatening and threatening moles can be removed with laser treatment. However, if you have a threatening mole removed which will be examined by the lab, it is important that you follow up with your physician on a routine basis to ensure there is no risk of future health problems. Once the treated area has healed, there will be no scars and evidence of ever having a mole.
