Cosmetic mole, skin tag, wart, and milia removal uses the latest radio-wave surgery techniques (similar to lasers) to remove unsightly growths by simply vaporising them, with or without local anaesthesia (depending on size).
The radio-wave surgery device seals off the blood vessels as it vaporises the lesion so there is no bleeding – no stitches required. By using this technique, the mole, skin tag or other lesion can be removed leaving almost no trace and no scar.
The only limitation of radio-surgery ablation technique is that the lesion must be raised above the skin level. These techniques will not work on a flat lesion, as that may potentially leave a depressed scar.
The scarless radio wave technique works on raised:
A scab will form over the area where the lesion is removed (much like the way a grazed knee will heal), which will drop off in about 5-10 days. All that is required during this period is a band-aid or dressing. Once healed the new skin can be pink or red and may take four to six weeks to settle completely and fade. The final appearance may be just like the surrounding skin or may be slightly paler, with no scar!
Medicare does not cover cosmetic lesion removal, but the costs are very affordable at only $150 for the first lesion removal, and $50 for each subsequent lesion removed in the same session (no limit to the number of moles or other lesions that can be removed in the session).
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
