WHAT ARE SKIN MOLES

Moles are a common type of skin growth that often manifest as small, dark brown spots appearing in clusters of pigment forming cells. Moles typically occur when skin cells known as melanocytes grow in clusters. This produces the melanin (natural pigment) that results in the mole’s dark color. Moles are usually harmless but can in rare cases turn into a severe form of skin cancer.

BENEFITS OF LASER MOLE REMOVAL

As a non-surgical skincare treatment, laser mole resurfacing offers unique advantages:

  • Requires no cutting or stitches – this means you don’t have to worry about visible scarring on your skin following this treatment.
  • Non-invasive – patients only experience minimal discomfort during and after the treatment.
  • Quick procedure – the entire process usually takes around 10 minutes so you can easily fit it into your schedule without taking too much time out of your day.
  • Long term results – provides long-term results when performed correctly by a professional technician who specializes in this type of procedure. After just one session, most patients see an immediate improvement in their appearance with no further treatments necessary.
In addition to these benefits, laser mole removal is known to reduce the risk of infection compared to traditional methods such as cutting or burning off moles. Since lasers are precise tools, they can target only the area that needs to be treated while leaving surrounding healthy tissue untouched. This helps reduce any potential risks associated with surgery and makes healing time much faster than if you were to opt for traditional methods.

HOW DOES LASER MOLE REMOVAL WORK

Laser mole removal is a safe and easy process that uses lasers to remove moles from the skin without any incisions or stitches. It may also be referred to as laser ablation or laser resurfacing. During the procedure, Dr. LaBarbera will use a specialized laser light beam to target the pigmentation of the mole and break down its molecular structure until it fades away from the skin’s surface. This non-invasive treatment is fast and comfortable, with few side effects and no lasting damage done to the surrounding skin tissue.

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER REMOVING MY MOLES

Mole removal isn’t just about aesthetics; it can also help reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. Moles are commonly caused by sun exposure, which increases your risk of melanoma—the most dangerous form of skin cancer. By removing moles through laser treatments in Phoenix AZ, you can help lower your risk of developing melanoma while also improving your appearance.

RISKS

Laser mole removal is considered to be a safe and effective procedure. However, it’s important to note that there are still some risks associated with this treatment:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Scars
  • Nerve damage
  • Mole recurrence
Patients should make that they appreciate these risks before choosing to move forward with the treatment. Choosing to work with a seasoned plastic surgeon such as Dr. LaBarbera who has done this right for numerous patients before can also go a long way to minimize unintended consequences.
