Where on my body can I have a mole removed?
You can have a mole removed from anywhere on your body, including on your face. Our doctors have years of experience in removing moles from the face and sensitive and hard-to-reach places.
Does mole removal hurt?
Laser Removal is described as feeling like the flick of an elastic band. For Shave and Excision Removal, the area will be numbed with a local anaesthetic so you won’t feel anything.
Is mole removal safe?
At sk:n you are in the safest hands. Our leading consultant dermatologists, doctors, surgeons and nurses have extensive training, qualifications and experience. We are trusted by the NHS, and receive more NHS referrals for mole removal than any other dermatology provider. During your consultation and treatment, we will explain any possible side effects and how to avoid them.
I have a mole(s) that I don’t like, or I want to be removed for cosmetic reasons but I know it’s not suspicious. Can it be removed?
Yes of course, it is possible. Unlike the NHS, who will only remove moles if they are potentially dangerous, at sk:n, we are used to removing moles for cosmetic reasons, unless your consultant feels there is a medical reason not to.
You would need to see a consultant for a consultation and clinical review to discuss the removal. Sometimes a doctor may advise against procedures because the risk of scarring outweighs the cosmetic benefit.
Will the mole grow back?
There is a very small chance that your mole might recur after having it removed, as a few mole cells may remain in the skin. If this is the case, we will book you in for further treatment. Usually, however, you will find that one treatment session is enough.
Is sk:n recognised by my insurer?
sk:n is on the approved list for most of the major insurers who will fund treatment provided the correct pre-authorisations are obtained.
What is Atypical mole syndrome?
The British Association of Dermatologists defines Atypical mole syndrome as “a disorder of the skin which is seen in approximately 2% of the population. It is defined when an individual has more than 50 moles composed of melanocytes (pigment producing skin cells) present on their skin, and three or more are atypical (unusual) in their appearance, e.g. size and shape.”
