Most people have a mole or two, some people have dozens.
They can appear more frequently as we age and can be flat, raised and any colour from flesh coloured through to very dark. Depending on colour and location they can be seen as something rather beautiful but many people simply find theirs unsightly.
Common methods of removal include Laser, Cryotherapy and Excision, all of which can leave behind scars of varying size, excision leaving the worst.
At Tina Sinclair Electrolysis we don’t remove the entire structure but flatten it to leave the least mark possible. Once healed there is little to no evidence to show it was ever there.
If you have hairs growing from your mole we would advise treating these first with electrolysis. It is very common to find the mole is more obvious because of the bulk of the hair follicles inside it. Once removed, the mole sometimes disappears from sight.
How do we do this?
We perform an advanced method of Electrolysis using very precise radio frequency/short wave diathermy. A firm, but tiny probe allows precise amounts of current to flow over the mole, dessicating and shrinking it. As there is heat involved this means there will be no bleeding.
What happens then?
The mole will dry, shrink and over the few days after treatment will form a crust.This crust must not be tampered with or picked and must be allowed to drop away naturally. At this point the mole will appear flatter but may still be slightly pink. We recommend sunscreen at this point (and forever all over!)
Do I need GP Permission?
No, but if you have any suspicions regarding your moles we would advise you to speak to your GP before treatment. Suspicious moles should always be checked over and monitored by your GP.
Signs of irregularity are –
Irregular and uneven borders, normal moles should be round or oval.
Asymmetry and odd shape, normally moles are quite even, be aware if a particular area or edge shows a change
The colour of your moles, if the colour changes suddenly or has uneven colour throughout.
The size of your moles, if you experience a mole becoming larger. A large mole would be considered bigger than the size of a pencil top rubber.
If your GP has concerns, they will refer you to NHS Dermatology for excision & biopsy.
Can you treat any other blemishes with this method?
Yes, all manner of skin tags, warts, and vascular blemishes.
How much does it cost?
We charge £150.00 for up to 3 moles. This includes aftercare and a follow up appointment if necessary.
