Moles are simply a collection of skin cells, blood vessels and sometimes pigment [colour] cells gathered together. On average a person will have around 20 – 30 of them.
We are extremely careful to check that any moles to be reduced are stable. They are removed by applying a heat energy to the surface of the mole, which seals off their blood supply. Sometimes 2 or 3 treatments are required for each mole depending on how large the mole was to start with.
You may require a GP referral for treatment which we will provide the paperwork for your doctor to approve. We do not provide a service to test the reduced mole as we are not removing any part of it, so if you would like histology on your treated mole you will need to be referred to a dermatologist.
