There are five ways to remove a mole – laser, shaving, punching, freezing and surgical excision.
However, RadioFrequency (RF) mole removal surgery is the most widely used secure method of mole removal in Melbourne.
RF Mole Removal
Radiofrequency mole removal is a simple and secure procedure that uses radio frequency to remove moles, skin tags or birthmarks. Radio Waves use vaporization and high frequency instead of cutting for mole removal. Therefore, there is very little or no scarring in RF mole removal when compared to other methods of mole removal live laser or scalpel.
How does it work?
The certified dermatologist and laser professional first conducts a detailed skin examination to fully understand the physical features of the mole.
Since RF mole removal does not apply to all types of moles, only after a detailed examination and analysis the doctor recommends the right type of mole removal procedure.
Radiofrequency devices consist of a very thin platinum wire loop. This wire is very thin like a strand of your hair. The platinum wire is utilised to brush through the targeted mole. The high-intensity radio waves passing through the wire, vaporize the skin tags or moles without any scarring.
Radiofrequency mole removal can effectively remove pigments and coagulate the blood vessels to immediately stop bleeding. Therefore, you’ll experience no bleeding during the procedure, and there’s minimal or no scarring.
