The area to be treated will be cleaned, disinfected, and carefully assessed. Your Doctor will inject the area with a local anaesthetic to numb the area in preparation for the procedure. She will use our Ellman® Acusect™ to ablate and vaporise the mole. The Acusect™ uses a patented radiowave technology to effectively remove all types of benign skin growths. Any lesions that raise concern will be biopsied first and sent away for assessment prior to complete removal. As there is no cutting there is no need for stitches. The built-in cauterisation of the process means that it is ideal for removing moles on the face and neck, although any area can be treated.
The skin around the site may appear red for a few days and there may be slight oozing, but this will soon return to normal. After treatment, your doctor will apply an ointment to the area and cover it with a dressing for a few days.
It is unlikely that any moles treated with the Acusect™ will need further treatments. There should be little or no scarring where the mole was removed, however you can’t pick the treated area as this can cause an infection or scarring.
