Moles are often benign, but people still want them gone. Traditional methods like shaving or cutting are effective, but they come with their own set of potential problems. If you have one or two moles that you would like to get rid of, it makes sense to consider mole removal using medical-grade lasers. Here are a few of the advantages that will come your way.
A Non-Invasive Solution
The process of mole removal using medical-grade lasers does not involve any type of invasive approach. The laser light seeps into the outer layers of the skin and begins to dissolve the mole from underneath. With this approach, you don’t have to be concerned about any bleeding. Keep in mind that it may take two or three treatments before the mole is completely gone.
Less Potential for Infection
The fact that mole removal using medical-grade lasers does not leave any open wound means that there is less potential for any type of infection. Many patients don’t experience any swelling and you don’t have to be concerned about applying antibacterial ointment to the area on and around the treatment site. As you will learn, using soap and water is all you need to keep the area clean and protect it properly.
A More Comfortable Procedure
With the laser treatment, you are not likely to feel much during or after the process. That also means you’re not likely to need any type of over the counter or prescription medication to get you through the rest of the day.
The fact that mole removal using medical-grade lasers does not require making any type of surgical opening means that any signs of scarring will be almost impossible to detect. Someone who has no idea the mole ever existed would have to look long and hard to find the site. You will even find it difficult to tell where the mole used to be after a time.
Easier to Use on Hard-to-Reach Areas
What happens if you have a mole that’s behind an ear lobe or somewhere on the face? While more traditional methods will work, getting to the spot can be problematic. The great thing about mole removal using medical-grade lasers is that you can administer the light on moles located in those hard-to-reach places. Couple that with less scarring and you have a winning combination.
