First Thoughts About Facial Mole Removal
Facial moles can occur anywhere from the top of your forehead to your chin and your neck.
In most locations it comes down to personal choice whether you want a doctor or dermatologist to remove them, or whether you want to do it yourself.
But if you have a mole close to an eye or your lips, the surgical option may be preferable. Home remedies involve creams, pastes or oils which can burn or irritate sensitive skin and eyes, and the treatment could be worse than the problem.
Surgical Removal
When done by a skilled surgeon, mole removal should be quick, permanent and scar free. It requires a fine balance between removing the entire mole, some of which extends beneath the surface of the skin, and minimizing the development of a scar. It's not always easy, and a low impact operation may result in regrowth of the mole if not all of it was removed the first time. Even the best of doctors may need to provide more than one treatment.
Surgical procedures are changing all the time, but there are six main techniques (cutting, shaving, burning, freezing and laser surger) forhow to remove moles.
Cutting or excision is used with suspicious or cancerous moles, and involves removing both the mole or melanoma and some surrounding tissue under a local anesthetic. The operation is supported by pathological studies and usually there is no regrowth. The wound will be closed with stitches, which will have to be removed at a later visit. A thin scar will result, but shouldn't be all that noticeable and will fade over a few months.
Smaller moles may be removed by plug biopsy - the mole is removed with a tool like a micro cookie cutter under anesthetic, and the wound closed usually with a single stitch. This procedure is usually used on normal moles, and scarring is minimal.
Shaving, burning (electrocautery) and laser surgery all work best on flatter moles, and are usually restricted to the surface layers of the skin. When well done they should not leave a scar, although temporary redness may result. They may require more than one visit, and because the treatment does not penetrate far into the skin, mole regrowth may occur in up to a quarter of cases.
Freezing, using liquid nitrogen, is about as effective. The mole is frozen, destroying it and leaving a temporary scab which will soon drop off. If freezing is restricted to the surface of the skin, and you can resist the temptation to pull the scab off before it's ready, there should be no scarring.
All these techniques are suitable for moles anywhere on your face, but your doctor will advise you about your options onhow to remove a mole.
Be prepared for some expense - several visits may be necessary, and unless the mole is cancerous the operation will be regarded as cosmetic surgery by your insurance company, and you will have to pay the full amount yourself.
