- A mole is referred by any people as
any dark spot or irregularity in the skin. Some people are born with moles.Sun exposure seems to play a role in the development of moles and may even play a role in the development of atypical, or dysplastic, moles. Many families have a type of mole known as dysplastic (atypical), which can be associated with a higher frequency of melanoma.
Moles, or nevi, are frequently removed for a variety of reasons. They can be removed by two surgical methods:
- Excision (cutting), with or without stitches
- Shave removal using a scalpel blade without stitches
Although laser excision has been tried for moles, it is not the method of choice for most deep moles because the laser light doesn’t penetrate deeply enough, and there is no tissue remaining to examine pathologically.
Incases where CO2 laser can be done it is a highly effective way to remove unsightly or bothersome benign moles and textural irregularities of the skin such as bumps, skin tags and warts. This form of removal is widely regarded as superior to traditional surgical techniques as the laser targets only the affected area. In addition, CO2 Laser Removal doesn?t involve stitching, which can leave scarring. Instead, the Laser seals the skin as it targets the tissue, leaving a smoother surface than would ordinarily occur with traditional surgical techniques.
The procedure is safe, quick and simple and the treated area heals quickly, with good cosmetic results.
