Laser Mole Removal

9 Things You Should Know About Laser Mole Removal

Laser mole removal is a surgical procedure in which a laser light beam is used to heat cells or tissue with the intent of manipulating or bursting them. The light beam is absorbed by the pigment of the mole, which is then broken up and absorbed by the body during the healing process. Because laser removal seals blood vessels, there is no need for suture or stitches.

1. What Type Of Moles Are Good Candidates?

  • New moles
  • Flat moles
  • Small moles

Bad Candidates?

  • Protruding moles, as the laser does not penetrate deep enough
  • Older moles
  • Large moles
  • Atypical moles that have not been examined

2. What Is The Procedure?
The skin is numbed, after which a low setting laser is used to decrease or remove the brown pigmentation of the mole. Procedure time varies depending on the size and severity of the mole.

3. Is It Painful?
Some people have indicated that they feel a slight tingling when the laser pulses, or that the laser pulse feels like the snap of a rubber band against the skin.

4. What Should I Expect After The Treatment?
After treatment, the area may appear darker or redden. The mole will turn into a scab which should fall off within 2 weeks. Because of the sensitive new skin under the mole, sunscreen should be used for 6 weeks following the procedure although sun exposure should be avoided entirely if possible.

5. What Are The Risks?
Generally, noninvasive surgery is performed either with local anesthesia or no anesthesia, but some procedures may require general anesthesia, which always poses a risk. In most cases, infection is the biggest risk of any noninvasive surgery and is minimal compared to other surgical procedures. Gloves and sterilization materials should be used.

6. What Are Some Possible Problems With Laser Removal?
Possible problems include incomplete treatment of the problem, pain, infection, bleeding, scarring, and skin color changes. While scarring is not a big risk of this procedure, some skin discoloration may occur which is said to decrease over time. There is a chance that laser treatments will only lighten the mole and not remove it entirely.

7. How Much Does A Laser Treatment Cost?
The cost varies greatly as several treatments may be required. Some claim treatments are as low as $50 per session while others state the prices as $400 and up per session.

8. How Many Laser Sessions Are Needed?
Typically, 3 sessions are needed for a successful treatment. Some patients may see a change in one session (flat moles) while others require more than three (protruding moles). As with surgery, make sure to receive an all inclusive quote for the procedure. (ex: anesthesia, equipment fees, etc.)

9. Will Insurance Cover The Procedure?
Laser mole removal is considered a cosmetic procedure , therefore not covered by most insurance companies. Financing options may be available for laser mole removal.
