What is the difference between Laser, Electrocautery & Surgical Excision for mole removal?

We recommend Laser Mole Removal.

At Bio Aesthetic Laser Clinic, laser mole removal is our preferred method for cosmetic removal and moles with no suspicion of cancer. Laser method removes unwanted moles without harming the skin cells around them and most importantly, it has the lowest risk for scars after the procedure. The procedure is minimally invasive and usually heals quickly with no downtime. The removal process might require a few sessions depending on the mole. For patients sensitive to pain, numbing cream / local anaesthesia can be applied to make it comfortable.

Electrocautery / Cauterisation mole removal

Cauterisation is a surgical procedure that involves the use of heat to remove the mole. It is another common approach for extracting moles have no suspicion of cancer. The mole’s surface would be heated using a sophisticated cauterisation instrument, allowing it to vaporise. Scraping could be needed for larger moles.

Surgical Excision 

Surgical excision is the recommended solution when a mole suspected of being skin cancers. A local anaesthetic will be used to ease the procedure. The mole and a small amount of skin covering the region are cut out with a scalpel in this process, ensuring that more pigment cells are removed completely. Cutting out these moles normally necessitates a few stitches and leaves a thin scar that can fade with time. The excised mole will be sent away for histological examination, and you will be informed of the findings in clinic.
