Are you thinking of having a mole removed? If so, you should find this article useful. Today, we at going to look at some tips and techniques to help you make the right choices when having a mole removed.


Tip 1: Check with Your Doctor

When having a mole removed (whether via a beauty salon, by yourself, or by your doctor), you should always visit the doctor first. This is in order to make sure that the mole is not showing any signs of being malignant, which would indicate that it has the possibility of being cancerous.


If this is the case, you will need further tests to ensure it hasn’t spread. It’s highly unlikely that it is cancerous, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Tip 2: Use the Correct Treatment

Unfortunately, there is plenty of nonsense online about DIY mole removal – using things like Apple Cider Vinegar, and other obscure options.

Instead, there are generally three different options that definitely work and that may be recommended by your doctor.
1. Laser wart removal: here, the practitioner directs a laser at the mole. The light then breakdown the cells in the mole, and they are then reabsorbed into the body. It will take a few weeks following the application for the mole to be complete absorbed.

2. Cryotherapy: here, the mole is frozen. This then kills the cells inside the mole and the mole will eventually fall off. It can take up to a month for the mole to finally fall off, but for most people, it happens within the first two weeks.

3. Excision: here, a doctor cuts the mole out.It’s painless because the area is numbed first, although once the local anaesthetic has worn off, it will be a little stingy. It works straightaway, so for many is the most convenient option.
