Mole Removal

Epsom Skin Clinics provide a complete mole and wart removal service, including Pathology testing, for anyone concerned about a lump or bump. We have a fully equipped minor operating room which we use to perform the procedure at a time that suits you.

Our Doctors use various methods for Mole removal such as:

Hyfrecation

Primarily used for small flat moles, skin tags and warts. The hyfrecation process uses micro-currents of electricity to heat small treatment tips which when applied destroy the target skin or the blood supply feeding a lesion.

Shave Excision

Using a scalpel blade parallel to the skin the doctor removes the lesion leaving the skin relatively flat. The majority do not require a dressing and heal quickly.  

Punch Biopsy

This is done with a round shaped knife ranging in size from 1mm to 8mm.  The punch biopsy includes a sample of full thickness skin and subcutaneous fat, commonly used to diagnose most inflammatory skin conditions.  

Cut & Stitch

The most common method used for larger, raised moles, involves removing the entire mole or lesion with a narrow surgical margin and closing with a small stitch. For larger lesions a punch biopsy may be performed to send a small sample to the pathology laboratory in order to confirm the diagnosis and ascertain if a removal is needed.

What results can I expect?

After a mole removal, you may find the area is a little bit red and sore for a week and may require a dressing.  We advise you to keep the area out of sunlight and to use a high SPF sunscreen on the area for about six months to avoid scarring.

How many treatments will I need?

You should only need one treatment.
