Mole removal

Mole removal is a medical procedure performed to remove unwanted moles or nevi from the skin. This is a common procedure that can be performed by medical professionals for both cosmetic and medical purposes. Here we will give you a thorough overview of the process, what you can expect before, during and after the treatment, as well as important things you should know.

Before treatment

Before undergoing mole removal, it is important to be well prepared:

  • Inform the doctor about all medicines you take and any allergies.
  • Avoid sunbathing in the area around the mole in the weeks before treatment, as tanned skin can affect the results.
  • The doctor will inform you of any precautions you should take on the day of treatment, such as fasting if necessary.

During treatment

The mole removal process itself is usually performed under local anesthesia and follows these steps:

  • The doctor will clean the area around the mole thoroughly.
  • The mole is then removed using a suitable method such as surgical excision, laser or electrocautery.
  • The wound may be sutured or sealed, depending on the size of the mole and the method used.
  • The procedure usually takes a short time and is painless thanks to the local anaesthetic.

After treatment

After removing moles, you need to pay close attention to aftercare:

  • The doctor will give you clear instructions on how to care for the wound, including dressing changes and cleaning.
  • Avoid sunbathing and sun exposure in the treated areas until the wound has completely healed.
  • Follow-up appointments are usually necessary to monitor the healing process and ensure that complications do not occur.
