Mole Removal

Causes

Moles are caused when cells in the skin sometimes mysteriously grow in clusters and lumps. Moles are usually caused due to genetics. Melanocytes are the type of cells responsible for causing moles. They are distributed throughout your skin and produce melanin that gives it its dark colour.

Treatments available

1.Laser Treatment:During laser moles removal, periodic bursts of intense light will be directed toward the mole, breaking down the skin cells it is made up of. The laser is only precisely targeted at the mole, which means that only the mole is destroyed and the surrounding tissue is left intact.

Mole Removal

What to expect

The time taken to remove moles through laser is minimal, wherein the removal of each mole takes only a few minutes. You will feel heat at the places where the laser is targeted as that is the laser working to minimize the appearance of the mole.

Time frame

Each session of mole removal through laser will only take around 15-25 minutes. In most cases, it can be removed in just one session, unless the mole is too severe. Then it would require more than a couple of sessions.

Side effects

The laser treatment for mole removal in itself is not painful. You will only feel a pink appearance on your skin after the treatment on the places where the moles used to be present.

Skin Tags Removal

Causes

Skin tags also called acrochordon appear due to the congestion of blood vessels and collagen in between skin folds. It is actually unclear how and why skin tags occur specifically. Many doctors believe that it is caused due to friction between the skin and your clothes. But this is also disputed. Skin tags can sometimes appear on their own without warning or without any causes. They appear in the form of raised or suspended lumps of skin and blood vessels.

Treatments available

Wart Removal

Causes

Warts are caused by an infection from the Human Papilloma Virus(HPV). This virus causes an excess amount of Keratin to form lumps on the skin. These lumps are usually dark in colour. It can take a wart as long as 2 to 6 months to form after your skin has been exposed to the HPV virus. Warts are known to spread too so its best to get them removed as soon as they appear any where on your skin.

Treatments available

1.Laser Treatment:Your doctor will use a laser light to heat and destroy the tiny blood vessels inside the wart. This process will cut off the blood supply thereby destroying the wart.

Wart Removal

What to expect

Since a laser is projected on the undesired wart, you will feel slight heating sensation on your skin. Your wart will be destroyed by the laser in and around 30 minutes.

Time frame

Laser treatment for warts may require 2-3 sessions of half an hour each. And warts are sometimes known to reappear once you’ve caught the virus, so multiple sessions during one’s lifetime may be required.

Side effects

Laser surgery for wart removal might have a few side effects, mainly, it may leave scars. Other side effects include debris of dead warts and dead skin cells appearing on your skin.
