Almost everybody who has a mole hates it. No matter where it is spotted, people complain of it being on the wrong place. Therefore, almost everyone wants to remove it. Whereas many of them may seem harmless, others may be either benign or malignant tumors in rare cases. Hence, a face mole removal not only aids in enhancing your beauty but can also save you from different health risks. After all, who doesn’t want to look beautiful and live long?
Cosmetic surgery opens many different doors for an appropriate face mole removal. One of the procedures used for face mole removal revolves around removing the mole by cutting it out with a scalpel. The mole is simply slashed using that scalpel and a piece of the patient’s own skin is stitched. The size of the skin that is to be patched is determined by the doctor whereas the depth and number of stitches depends on the size of the moles. If you want a face mole removal that will help you escape the stitching process, there is another cutting method. After the doctor had slashed your mole, he will allow it to flush with the surrounding skin. Later on, an electric instrument will be used to stop the bleeding process by burning the tissues. This method of face mole removal will remove your mole at first, however, there are chances of it growing back, because the mole is only slashed on the outside while still having roots underneath.
Another way of face mole removal is by using the laser technique. The basic principle behind such a method of face mole removal is to use the laser beam to seal the blood vessels and tissues by evaporation. The highly concentrated laser beam allows the mole to burn away. Thus the laser method does not involve any cutting or bleeding. For flat moles, the patient has to see the doctor at least 3–4 times in order to completely remove the dark pigment. As for other kinds of moles that look suspicious, you may have to go through a complete body check in order that the doctor examines your lymph nodes. Laser treatment is effective because it involves minimum invasion. Also, the number of complications is small, therefore people of any age group can easily benefit from this method of face mole removal.
Also, many dermatologists use a freezing method for face mole removal. A freezing solution of liquid nitrogen is used. This is mainly applied to embossed moles before the mole is shaved. However, the freezing method for a face mole removal can give some pathological responses because of the ice crystals. This is quite useful with moles that are not suspected to be a melanoma because such a face mole removal treatment will hinder the diagnosis of a melanoma.
Even though the risks and complications are minimal, an infection can occur. However, this is largely dependent upon the method of face mole removal used. Scars are one of the common aftereffects that are normally reported. Some of them can go away with time, others might stay. For those that stay, you can select different skin surfacing methods and scar revision procedures.
