Moles and beauty are always enemies. Many people would be wishing for there moles to just vanish from there body and life.
The two methods that are used to remove moles are by cutting off the mole and then put stitches or by burning the moles using a tool. The scientific names for these methods are excision and stitching, and excision and cauterization.
Some people have tried using lasers to get rid of their moles; however this is not usually the chosen method because the laser light does not penetrate as deep as need be to remove moles that are deeply rooted in the skin. Many dermatologists will prescribe the excision method with stitches or without, usually dependent on whether the mole is deep and if the outcome is positive.
Moles are always considered as dark spots, birthmarks, skin allergies, keratoses or with some abnormal blood vessels. The doctors will differ in their opinion as the procedure involved in the removal of moles is entirely different from the procedure of removing skin marks.
Many people wonder just how moles are caused; some people may get their moles at birth while others may come with age. Another major cause of moles is sun exposure, which plays a major role in the development and look of moles. Lastly, moles may appear simply because you are from a family that is prone to moles.
The mole removal method involve some risks as they may result in skin infection, skin allergy or may be even affect on the nervous system. A dermatologist with the best skills has to be consulted in order to avoid the side effects.
Other risks may depend on which part of you is being treated and the other method would be removed. One of these risks may be that after you have had a mole surgically removed, you may be left with an unsightly scar. Your surgeon will give you a general idea of what type of mole you have and where, before the procedure is performed.
The mole removal surgery procedure involves cleaning the area of the mole at the first and then numbing the area with a sort of anesthetic and the surgeon has to wait for about 20 minutes for the area to completely numb. Then a drape will be spread on you depending on the size of the mole and the type of mole removal procedure used. Using a scalpel the surgeon shaves the area of the mole. Then an instrument or a tool is used to burn the area of the mole, later the operated area is cleaned using a solution. The removal of the mole may result in bleeding; in order to stop the bleeding bandages are covered over the area. The wound must heal; hence the surgeon will prescribe antibiotics.
The wound have to carefully bandage and the antibiotics has to be taken without fail in order to avoid the infection. The operated area has to be cleaned on a daily basis with the prescribed diluted hydrogen peroxide or with water until the wound is healed.
