Why do I have moles?
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.
How do we reduce them?
We use 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 and into the moles, desiccating and shrinking them. We don’t remove the moles but flatten them to give the best cosmetic finish possible. Once healed there is little evidence they were ever there.
What happens then?
Initially, after treatment the moles will look whiter. Over the next few days the moles will dry, shrink and form a crust. These crusts must be allowed to drop away naturally. At this point the moles will appear flatter but may still be slightly pink as they will still be healing. We recommend sunscreen at this point (and forever all over!)
Occasionally some very large or fibrous moles may need a second treatment. You will be advised of this and any associated costs during your consultation.
Is there downtime?
Not really. There is no need to take any time off unless you feel it personally necessary due to their location. If you have an important social function coming up we would recommend having moles treated 6-8 weeks before to allow for full healing
Why should I come to you?
Our Electrologists are proud to have over 25 years worth of clinical experience within this field and carry the required training, dermatology, anatomy knowledge, MASCED accreditation and licensing which are all constantly updated. We assess every mole for suitability before treatment to current NHS standards which includes, Symmetry, Border, Colour, Diameter and Evolution and refer more back to the NHS than we treat. The majority of our clients come to us after being referred and assessed by either the NHS or Private Sector which includes GP’s, practice nurses, dermatologists and consultant plastic surgeons. As many NHS boards no longer treat the blemishes, these professionals are glad to have somewhere they can confidently recommend.
