Facial Moles :

Facial moles refer to moles that appear on the face. They can be flat or raised (flush with the skin or elevated above the skin, respectively). If you close your eyes and just touch these moles, you will feel a bump over the raised facial moles and won’t feel anything when you touch the flat ones. Great majority of these moles are benign and have been present since childhood or have developed later in life.

Benign raised moles cause absolutely no harm and, as a rule, do not develop as cancerous moles (melanomas). Benign raised moles pose only cosmetic issues. For some, they are unwanted and can be easily removed, while for others they enhance the appearance (hence the name “Beauty Mark”).

Non Surgical Treatment for Facial Moles :

Facial moles can be successfully removed with simply freezing them; what is known as cryotherapy. Advantage of cryotherapy over surgery is that the skin will remain intact at all times, eliminating the risk of infections or scar formation. Some flat and smaller facial moles are removed by dermabrasion or heat probe.

Most moles require more few treatments spanning several weeks. Each cryotherapy treatment results in removal of a portion of the mole. When there are several moles on the face, it is best to only treat a few of them in each treatment session, and allow them to heal.

Once the mole is frozen with cryotherapy, new skin cells will populate the treated area. Over time, the color and look of new skin will blend in with the surrounding skin. This normalization process can take up to several months and varies among individuals. Below are some examples of the we have treated and the results we have achieved with non surgical treatments.

Advantages of Cryotherapy over other treatments for Facial and other Moles:

Surgery for removal of a benign mole always results in a visible scar. Appearance of a surgical scar, however small, is unpleasant. Cryotherapy on the other hand does not leave a scar. The integrity of skin is maintained at all times and skin heals rather nicely.

Shave Removal of raised moles, commonly performed by dermatologists, often results in recurrence of the mole. This procedure cuts the mole at a flat level to the skin, thereby leaving the root of the more in place. Over time, majority of such moles reoccur.

Cryotherapy on the other hand penetrates deeper in the tissue. With each application of cryotherapy, one is able to reach to the root of the mole and eradicate the mole frm its base without leaving a scar.

Laser treatments are used for treatment of dark and pigmented moles. Laser heat is absorbed by the tissue that contains the dark pigment of the skin and not the rest of the mole tissue. Laser does not work well for moles that are the same color as the skin.

Another method of removing moles is using an electric scalpel. Although these devices are excellent in cutting tissue, but they can never get to the root of the moles. At best, these devices cut the mole at its base, leaving the root of the mole behind, leading to re growth of the mole.
