Moles are a common occurrence on the skin. The majority of these skin lesions or pigmentation will be harmless but they can be aesthetically unappealing depending on where they are located. Cosmetic radio frequency mole removal refers to the removal of skin growths and discolorations that are purely an aesthetic concern. However it is essential that all moles are assessed by a Qualified Medical Practitioner to ensure that they do not need further assessment by a punch biopsy mole removal, shave biopsy or traditional excisional biopsy .

What's the procedure for Radiofrequency mole shaving?

Radio frequency mole removal is commonly used to remove moles that protrude above the surface of the skin. This gently shaves the mole away (layer by layer) from the surface of the skin. Radio frequency mole removal is the best option for evenness of skin texture, offering the doctor better control over the depth of removal and to reduce scarring.

What's the recovery time?

A dressing is applied for one to two weeks* allowing patients to shower the same day and return to work straight away. The area treated with radiosurgery for mole removal may  remain red from one to three months on average, depending on the natural colouring of the skin (those with a fairer complexion will see more pinkish colouring and have minimal scarring).

You should use suncream daily to prevent any further sun damage from occurring. We also recommend a lotion be applied to the wound after treatment to the treated area drying out you should keep the wound covered for a couple of weeks* for the duration of the healing process for the best cosmetic results.
