Looking for Effective Mole Removal? Try CO2 Laser Mole Removal


March 13, 2024

Moles on the face and body not only look aesthetically unappealing but can also be a cause for worry as many moles are a sign of skin cancer. It is better and much safer to get big moles on the face and body removed early on to prevent them from growing any bigger and/or becoming infected at a later stage. 

Most moles on the body and face are benign, but some develop into cancerous growths. This can be checked only with the help of a biopsy. So get those moles removed with the help of lasers to look and feel better about yourself. 

What Is The CO2 Laser For Mole Removal? 

The CO2 Laser is a very effective method to remove big, unsightly, and bothersome benign moles from your face and body. It can also help remove all kinds of textural irregularities of the skin such as warts, bumps, and skin tags. 

This form of mole removal is widely regarded to be superior to the traditional surgical techniques since the laser targets only the area that needs treatment. Also, CO2 Laser Removal doesn’t involve any stitches that can leave scars. Instead, the Laser closes the skin and targets only the tissue, leaving a smooth and clean surface unlike after having traditional surgical techniques.

The CO2 laser procedure is safe, simple, and quick. The treated area heals very quickly, giving you great cosmetic results.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About CO2 Laser Mole Removal:

Q: Is there any downtime after having CO2 laser mole removal done?

A: No, there is no downtime after having a CO2 laser mole removal done. 

Q: Does the procedure hurt?

A: The area of treatment is numbed using an ointment containing lidocaine (or something stronger) prior to the CO2 laser mole removal procedure. So you will not experience any pain during the procedure. The type of anaesthetic that you will receive – either a topical anaesthetic or a local anaesthetic – depends on the size of the mole to be removed.

Q: Will I have bandages on after I leave the clinic?

A: No, you will not be bandaged after you leave the clinic. 

Q: How will I look after I leave the clinic?

A: The treated area will look much better after you leave the clinic than when you first arrived. The treated area will appear to be a little pink in colour and a little sore, but the mole will be completely gone.

Q: Do I need any follow up visits after having my CO2 laser mole removal done?

A: No you will not need any follow up visits after having your CO2 laser mole removal done. But if for any reason, the lesions re-appear, then you will need to undergo treatment again.
