There are various reasons why a mole should be removed from the skin. The two main methods for surgical mole removal in Melbourne include cutting or excision, with or without stitches; and shave removal, with the help of a scalpel without stitches.
The dermatologist may suggest the excision method with or without stitches, as per the physical characteristics of the mole and the desired cosmetic outcome of the patient.
However, there is a latest and advanced treatment method for surgical mole removal, called Radiofrequency surgery. The procedure is swift and causes very minimal scarring.
Another new method for surgical mole removal in Melbourne is Radiofrequency Surgery or RF. It is a simple procedure wherein radiofrequency is used to remove the moles, skin tags and birthmarks. Radiofrequency surgery involves the use of high frequency and vaporisation to remove the moles instead of cutting. Therefore, minimal or no scars are formed after this treatment.
How does Radiofrequency Surgery work?
In radiofrequency surgery, a very fine loop of a wire made of platinum is used to brush the mole. This way the skin tag or the mole is vapourised. The wire is as thin as your hair and radio waves are channelled through these wires. This treatment is effective in removing the pigments but also coagulates the blood vessels. That’s why the patient does not experience any bleeding in the area during the procedure. Plus, no heat is involved in the procedure, therefore, there is no or minimal scarring.
Laser treatment is also used in combination with radiofrequency treatment to remove some flat moles and raised moles and minimize the scarring. More specifically, laser treatment is used to treat the last remaining portions of the raised moles to avoid scarring.
Benefits of Radiofrequency Surgery
The top benefits of radiofrequency surgery are, it’s pain-free and safe, and there is swift healing.
As only the pigmented tissue is removed, while the dermis or the second layer of the skin is left untouched, the scarring is very minimal.
The other benefits include:
- No pressure is needed for the surgery. This improves the precision of the surgery
- The wound geet cauterised, this immensely stops the bleeding before it could start
- It provides a more sterile surgical environment
- There is very little or no scarring from the treatment
- Safer procedure (with a fully acknowledged risk profile)
- No stitches required
- Less pain and swelling during the healing
- The skin looks better after healing
What happens during Radiofrequency surgery?
The dermatologist will first conduct a thorough examination of your skin. They may ask you for your detailed medical history and check if you have any kind of ailments or allergies.
They will then check the characteristics of the mole and suggest the appropriate treatment for surgical mole removal in Melbourne.
The area of the skin surrounding the mole will be numbed and then the radiofrequency treatment will be conducted to safely remove the mole.
