MOLE REMOVAL PROCEDURE – FAQS
Is mole removal permanent?
Generally moles do not regrow once they have been removed and most moles can be successfully and permanently removed in a single treatment.
How much does Mole removal cost?
The costs will vary depending on the method of mole removal you choose. Excisions (shave and curette/cautery) are less expensive than surgical removals because they do not require stitches. The number of moles you wish to have removed will also affect the price.
At Dr Leah Clinics we do not charge hidden consultation fees; our £50 mole check fee is deducted from the cost of the mole removal procedure if it is done on the same day (‘See and Treat appointment’).
What Happens At A Mole Removal Consultation?
We have two types of consultation for individual moles:
‘Individual Mole check consultation’: Cost £50 *non refundable. This is the appointment you should book if you would like a particular mole checked but do not wish for it to be removed on the same day. During this consultation our specialist doctor will check your mole using a device called a dermascope. This will allow the doctor to identify if there is anything you should be aware of regarding the mole.
‘See and Treat’ appointment: This is the appointment you should book if you wish to have a mole removed on the same day as your appointment. During this appointment our specialist doctor will check your mole using a device called a dermascope, and if appropriate will remove the mole using the most suitable method.
Can Dr Leah remove moles on face and body?
Yes, we treat moles on the face and body. Dr Leah Clinics’ specialist doctors areskilled in removing moles in these areas.
Does getting a mole removed leave a scar?
‘Shaving’ tends to leave a pinkish mark behind, but this usually fades over time. The surgical excision method requires a small stitch in the skin – this leaves a small mole removal scar, but again, this should fade over time and if required Dr Leah Clinics have laser solutions to reduce?improve scarring.
I have a mole removal scar after my treatment, what can I do?
Dr Leah Clinics have multiple treatments available to reduce the appearance of scars.
What if my mole is cancerous? When to get a mole checked?
The majority of moles are completely harmless. However, if your Dr Leah doctor believes there may be cause for concern, we will advise you on what to do next. Dr Leah Clinics routinely send ALL removed moles for histology. If you suspect that your mole is cancerous then the best thing to do is to visit your GP urgently.
What happens after mole removal?
Depending on the type of mole removal you have had, you will have either a pinkish mark where the mole had been (shave excision) or a white thin line with stitches (surgical excision).
The skin left behind may feel tender for a few days and will need to be covered with a plaster. It’s also best to use medical SPF on the area for the next 6 months as it will be sensitive to the sun. If you have had a surgical excision you will be offered an appointment 1 week later to remove your stitches.
With all types of mole removal we offer a ‘scar review’ with one of our aesthetic skin therapists 6 weeks after treatment.
No, the area will be numbed with a local anaesthetic. After the initial sting of the anaesthetic, you won’t feel anything.
Can I remove my mole simply because I don’t like how it looks?
Yes, this is called cosmetic mole removal and this is what Dr Leah Clinics specialise in.
