Cosmetic Mole Removal

You don’t have to live with unsightly, raised moles on your face, neck or body and you don’t have to undergo the knife, scalpel or stitches to have the moles removed.

Cosmetic Mole Removal is a delicate radiofrequency shave procedure for the removal of benign (non-cancerous) moles or skin tags. No scalpels or stitches, means a smoother final result.

In the sunny Australian climate moles are often common. The vast majority of moles that appear on the skin before the age of 30 are commonly non-cancerous, but can cause irritation on the skin or be a cosmetic nuisance, especially those on the face or neck.

Using the high-tech gold standard Ellman Surgitron machine there is no cutting or sutures required, unlike surgical excision. It is a walk-in walk-out procedure, with little aftercare required. You can resume normal daily activities after your procedure.

More information on Cosmetic Mole Removal

Why should I choose Cosmetic Image Clinics for my Cosmetic Mole Removal procedure?


Cosmetic Image Clinics in our award winning Aquarius Health and Medispa, voted best Medispa for 2014 by the Australasian Spa Association is owned and operated by Dr Ingrid Tall who has over 20 years of experience in the cosmetic medicine industry. Dr Tall together with our aesthetic medicine team has successfully performed thousands of benign mole and skin tag removals.

Using the high-tech gold standard Ellman Surgitron Diathermy Technology, unwanted protruding moles and skin tags can be removed by an effective radiofrequency shave procedure by our experienced team. Your moles will firstly be checked by a doctor. Any lesions of concern will be sent to the laboratory for testing.

The procedure takes a short time, and requires only a small local anaesthetic, which is very fast acting. Following the procedure a small dressing is applied, which can be left on during showering, and is removed a few days later.

Many patients have reported a new-found confidence following cosmetic mole removal, having suffered the embarrassment of unsightly moles on their face and body. Cosmetic mole removal using the Surgitron is a very efficient, cost effective procedure, with dramatic results!

Our clinic is medically supervised and if experience, credibility and a ‘natural look’ is what you are looking for, then make Queensland’s largest cosmetic clinic, Cosmetic Image Clinics your preferred provider.

What can I expect when I have a Cosmetic Mole Removal procedure?


The procedure is quick, taking less than half an hour to remove those moles you have often lived with nearly all your life.

A little local anaesthetic numbs the area which makes the procedure totally painless and there is minimal bleeding as the diathermy machine seals the blood vessels as it removes the mole. The surprise and delight is evident on clients’ faces when they look in the mirror and see the mole has vanished.

The healing process takes around two weeks. It is important to keep the treated area covered with a dressing such as a transparent cold sore patch until it has healed. Moist wound healing will ensure no crust or scab forms which lowers your risk of scarring.

The treated area will remain pinkish for a few weeks to a couple of months. After that, the treated area where the skin is younger and fresher may often appear a little lighter than the surrounding area. The texture of the skin may be also subtly different to the surrounding skin, as the newly grown skin has not been sun damaged in comparison.

The end result is the raised, often darker unsightly mole is replaced by youthful new skin.

What should I look for when deciding to get my mole removed?


Most moles are not dangerous. If you see changes in existing moles or a mole first appears after the age of 30 then you should see a dermatologist. Similarly if you see signs that the mole has changed color, height, size, or shape, you should have a dermatologist evaluate it. You also should have moles checked if they bleed, discharge, itch, or become tender or sore.

Does a doctor assess the mole to ensure it is not a potential pre-cancerous or cancerous skin lesion?


Yes, at Cosmetic Image Clinics, a doctor will check your skin lesion to ensure a clinical excision or biopsy is not recommended. Some clinics recommend that the skin lesion must be checked by a doctor within the previous 6 months however this practice is substandard. Skin lesions can change within that time frame.

Is local anaesthetic used for the removal of the skin lesion?


Yes, at Cosmetic Image Clinics local anaesthetic is routinely used. Some clinics do not offer local anaesthetic because a nurse or doctor is not available to administer it.

What techniques are used to minimise discomfort?


At Cosmetic Image Clinics, we employ numerous techniques to minimise discomfort including the use of vibrating tools and ice which are known to decrease the discomfort of local anaesthetic injections.

Talk to our staff upon arrival about other forms of pain relief available.

At Cosmetic Image Clinics we pride ourselves on making your experience as comfortable as possible.

Is an autoclave used to sterilise relevant equipment?


Yes, at Cosmetic Image Clinics an autoclave is used to sterilise appropriate equipment. Some clinics do not have an autoclave to appropriately sterilise equipment and only use disinfectant solution which is substandard clinical practice.

Is a biopsy performed if the lesion is suspicious?


Yes, at Cosmetic Image Clinics a biopsy is performed if there is any degree of suspicion regarding a skin lesion.

Is informed consent provided?


Yes, at Cosmetic Image Clinics you will be fully informed of the potential risks of the procedure.

Is a photograph taken prior to the treatment?


Yes, at Cosmetic Image Clinics a clinical ‘before treatment’ photograph is taken usually in a special photography room to document the lesion prior to the treatment.

What before and after care is recommended?


At Cosmetic Image Clinics, we advise you what to do to accelerate the healing process and minimise the risk of scarring with special wound dressings and a topical ointment application after the healing process.

It is important for the first three months after removal of the mole that you minimise your exposure to the sun or UV rays. If you are exposed to the sun you should ensure you use at least SPF 30+ sunscreen.

Q. Hello! I’d like to have some moles and skin tags removed. I live far away and am only in Brisbane every few months – do I need to have a follow up appointment to make sure everything’s as it should be? I hope not, because I’ve decided for sure that I want those suckers gone as soon as possible. Anyway, I will be in Brisbane from the 26th of June to the end of the 1st of July. If there will be an appointment free in that period and no follow up is necessary, I will definitely want to snaffle it. If not, I’m sorry to have taken up your time with this enquiry and will be better organised in the future!


We can sure help you with this….

 

Q. Over the last couple of years I have noticed 2 ”white moles” (i think they are moles) appear on my cheek. I would like to have someone look at them and see if I can have them removed as I have started to catch them when I shave and sometimes they do ”sting” as I catch them with my razor.


Could you please kindly send us a photo of these white moles so we can assess them?

 

Q. I have a series of skin tags on my eye lids approximately 8 – 12. Have you had any success in removal of skin tags in this area. Can you advise the cost of initial consultation and what the fees approximately for treatment may be.


Dr Ingrid Tall would be happy to remove these skin tags on your eyelids.  Usually it is $350 per tag on the eye rim, but as you have several we would be happy to give you a quote for this.  There is a consultation fee of $70 which you receive a rebate from Medicare of $36.60.  Dr Tall can consult and remove the tags on the same day if you wish.

Would it be possible to send us a photo?  Dr Tall can have a look and see if we can give you a costing.

 

Q. Hello, I saw a cosmetic surgeon today about getting a mole removed from my upper middle chest area. The doctor didn't want to excise or scoop the mole as the area was very likely to scar badly and possibly worse than the original mole. Do you think I would be able to get a good cosmetic outcome for a mole in this area using your methods/doctors? Thanks


A shave of this lesion would be definitely superior to an excision or ‘scooping’ as this area is very prone to scarring and stretching of the scar tissue….
