Mole Removal Adelaide

Today everyone wants to look younger and have beautiful skin.

Sometimes however, unsightly moles, skin tags or other raised lesions are the features first noticed by others.

Until recently there have been only two options for dealing with moles – leave them alone, or have them surgically excised with a resultant scar which is often as obvious as the mole. Often, moles are in areas where excision is difficult or impossible (other than by excision and graft) such as on and around the nose, lips and eyes.

Introducing radiowave treatment

Radiowave technology is the passage of ultra-high frequency radiowaves into the skin via fine electrodes which make very fine incisions in tissue, coagulating at the same time so there is no, or minimal bleeding.

Only the cells immediately adjacent to the electrodes are affected, so there is little or no lateral damage to the adjacent skin, and scarring is minimal.

In contrast to surgical excision, only the mole tissue above skin level is removed. (Surgical excision requires removal of a small margin of normal skin around the mole plus the skin under the mole, down to the subcutaneous level, then suturing, which requires postoperative wound care and results in the inevitable scar).

The fine electrodes used in radiowave surgery remove fine slivers of mole tissue, shaving it down to skin level leaving a smooth surface which forms a superficial scab.

Provided this is left to heal naturally (7 to 10 days) there is rarely any scarring at the treatment site.

There may be slight colour difference in the treated skin (compared with the surrounding skin) but this will tend to fade and blend in over time.

The process is painless, as the mole is injected with a local anaesthetic prior to removal.

Before consideration of mole removal, it is important to have the mole assessed by an experienced clinician to ensure that it does not require surgical excision or biopsy to rule out skin cancer. Dr. Ron Louis at Skin Doctor SA in Semaphore has decades of experience in the area of skin cancer assessments and treatments and uses the latest radiowave technology, in the form of the Surgitron Radiolase II, made by Ellman, world leaders in radiowave surgical treatments.
