Causes of Moles
Moles appear as growths on the skin that are often brown or black in colour. They can appear in groups or individually in most cases. The growths are predominantly developed during childhood until the young adult stages. Most people have between 10-40 moles by the time they reach adulthood.
The occurrence of moles are the result of cells within the skin growing in clusters rather than being spread out over the skin’s surface. These cells, known as melanocytes are responsible for giving your skin a natural tone. Extensive sun exposure can result in the darkening of existing moles, particularly during the teenage years and pregnancy.
In most cases, moles are not dangerous. Checking the moles on your body is imperative to ensuring that you are not at risk from any potential skin cancers. Signs to look for include observing moles that look different compared to others on your body. Noticing changes in existing moles’ colours, shapes or size should be an indicator to have a doctor or dermatologist evaluate them. Other warning signs to keep an eye out for include any discharge from a mole such as blood, puss or even finding that certain moles become itchy or tender to the touch.
Treatment of Moles
For mole removal, we use the CO2 Surgical Laser to remove each mole without bleeding. It is a very quick and simple procedure. Specifically we use the EXELO2 CO2 Full Ablative laser to perform the removal.
The EXELO2 CO2 Full Ablative procedure delivers a laser through a range of narrow wavelengths that are able to target the area to rise the temperature that in turn results in full tissue ablation. After this, the body’s natural healing process replaces the damaged tissue with healthy tissue. This procedure has been considered as the cosmetic industry’s golden standard.
