Laser Mole Removal
The most admired beauty attribute throughout all cultures is flawless skin. Moles or skin tags (even though they may have been diagnosed as harmless) are often unwanted and can be a source of extreme preoccupation. Many patients request their removal.
At the Randali Centre we offer several ways to remove these offending lesions:
Q-Switch Nd:YAG Laser for Pigmented Lesions
For more than a decade, the Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser has been a true workhorse in removing well-defined brown pigmented spots such as age or ‘liver’ spots, freckles, brown birthmarks and Nevus of Ota. During treatment, the laser light is passed over the pigmented skin and the pigmented lesions are microscopically shattered into tiny particles. These particles are then processed and eliminated by the lymphatic system of the body. The sensation of the laser is comparable to the snap of a rubber band and anesthetic is rarely required. Most patients undergo a ten minute treatment and some may require only one treatment session. After treatment, mild to moderate irritation of the overlying skin is to be expected and brown spots become slightly irritated for a few days to a week or so.
Following treatment, the area should be cleansed with a mild soap two to three times a day, and an antibiotic ointment (such as Polysporin) applied. Sun exposure should be avoided for one week and sunscreen should be used daily.
Treatment with the Q-Switch Nd:YAG laser has a very strong track record for safety and precision and the results can be dramatic.
