mole/ wart removal

Moles are extremely common, with most people having at least one somewhere on their face or body from childhood or adolescence. Caused by a concentration of melancoytes – cells that produce pigment – in a certain area, moles are most likely to be present in larger quantities on light-skinned individuals. Most moles are entirely harmless but are not always aesthetically pleasing; larger, obvious moles located in a visible area of the face or body may cause emotional distress.

Moles come in a range of different colours, shapes and sizes. While it is normal for moles to change in size and colour as you age and for new ones to appear, particularly during pregnancy or as a result of other hormonal changes, it is advisable to keep an eye on all moles to ensure that you can spot any alarming variations at an early stage. If this should occur, make an appointment with a certified dermatologist for a professional opinion.

What does Mole removal involve?
In the case of benign moles being removed for aesthetic reasons, a dermatologist may recommend one of two options:

  • Liquid Nitrogen – a small quantity of liquid nitrogen can be sprayed or dabbed onto the offending mole to freeze it. A small blister may appear on the treatment area but will heal after the treatment.
  • Cauterization – a wire with a small electrical charge is used to burn the pigmented skin growth. Local anesthetic is used to ease any discomfort.
  • Surgical removal – in some cases surgical removal may be required, wherby the mole is removed with a scalpel or surgical scissors. This may be most appropriate for moles that are located in certain areas, such as close to the eye or on the neck near the jugular. Deep rooted moles would necessitate a deeper incision and stitches. In all surgical cases, local anesthetic would be applied to the treatment area beforehand to ease any discomfort.

The first step is to book a consultation with a qualified Cocoona dermatologist who will be able to advise on the best treatment for your individual case.

How many sessions of Mole removal would I need?
Most moles will be successful and permanently treated in a single session. Again, your dermatologist will be able to give an accurate prognosis in line with your individual situation.

How much does Mole removal cost?
The costs will vary depending on the type of treatment, the size of the mole or moles and a number of other variable factors. For an accurate cost assessment, you will need to book an initial consultation with one of our experienced dermatologists.

    I want to thank you for the great effort and expertise that you put in the hair transplant procedure which you did on me. You have fixed a big cut from a previous, very bad hair transplant in Jordan. It kept me very nervous and uncomfortable for very long time. Now, after conducting this surgery by you, I feel very very happy because the cut is almost gone. I like your personality and professionalism. I am really glad that I made a decision to come to Dubai and conduct the surgery at Cocoona Clinic Thank you very much.
