If a mole is determined to be clearly benign then a technique called Erbium YAG laser ablation will be used by our expert doctors to give the best scarring result. This is an excellent tool for cosmetically sensitive areas such as the face because it allows for faster healing and better scarring.
Erbium YAG Laser is a specialised and computer controlled removal of layers of the skin’s surface, which can produce outstanding results with minimal risk. The laser light is absorbed by the water in your skin cells. This absorbed energy in turn causes the instantaneous vaporisation of the targeted cells. As the laser light passes over the skin, about 5-20 microns of tissue is removed at a time. This precision makes the Erbium Yag laser is ideal for scarless removal of moles. Indeed it is possible with this technique at times to remove certain moles virtually scarlessly. The Erbium YAG laser is the most superior tool for minimal scar mole removal as it creates minimum thermal damage to underlying tissue and preservation of important adnexal structures allows healing to take place with minimal scarring.
