How to remove a mole in Kyiv?

How to remove a mole correctly when is the best time to remove it? We hear such questions very often. Every person is familiar with neoplasms – moles or nevi. They can be small or large, light and dark, voluminous and flat. We live with moles all our lives, and often do not know what they mean.

Meanwhile, it is extremely important for any person to know their neoplasms and understand which ones are healthy and which ones can bring complications. As the saying goes, “Forewarned is forearmed!”

For those who have many moles, or they are large and of an unusual shape, the question often arises:

How to understand whether a mole has a normal size or not?

How to distinguish a healthy mole from a neoplasm?

How to remove a mole if it bothers me?

Coollaser Clinic will be happy to tell you how to remove a mole on the body and face competently and without consequences!

How to understand when it is time to see a specialist?

  1. Large sizes over 15 cm
  2. Bulky, significantly protruding above the skin
  3. Sensitivity changes (itching)
  4. Mole bleeding
  5. Sudden rise
  6. Glossy surface
  7. Nodules
  8. Not aesthetic appearance

To figure out how best to get rid of a nevus, you need to find out what it is and how it is formed.

How is a nevus formed?

A mole or nevus is a benign skin growth. The nevus is formed as a result of an increase in cells (melanocytes).

Education can have a different color: from close to the shade of your skin to almost black. If the mole was, say, brown and suddenly changed its color, this is a reason to see a dermatologist.

Also, nevi can have completely different shapes and sizes!

Large (over 12 cm), medium (no more than 12 cm) and small (no more than 2 cm). Edges can be smooth and neat, blurry, sharp, or constantly changing.

Small nevi with neat edges that have not changed over the years should not cause you any concerns.

It is important to understand that the formation of nevi on our body is absolutely normal!

Classification worth knowing.

This is an accumulation of pigments that are located only in the upper layer of the epidermis.

Nevi in this case go deeper than the upper layer of the epidermis, closer to the dermis.

Such formations are always found between different layers of the skin. This is where their name comes from.

An important point! There are many varieties that are signs of a malignant skin formation. Only an experienced dermatologist in a clinical setting can determine the type of mole.

How to distinguish melanoma from nevus?

Melanoma is a malignant neoplasm of the skin, and a mole is a healthy nevus that does not carry any harm. Only an experienced appearance specialist can distinguish melanoma from a mole:

Benign nevus.

It has smooth, neat edges, it is symmetrical and well-defined. The color is smooth, and the size, as a rule, does not exceed 6 mm.

Signs of melanoma.

Asymmetric formation with jagged or ragged edges. It is unevenly colored and not clearly delineated. The melanoma is larger than 6 mm and shows signs of growth.

It is very important to understand that there may be other formations on our body that look very much like moles: warts and papillomas.

How to remove a mole?

It is impossible to get rid of formations at home. We care about your health. Therefore, we strongly do not recommend trying to do this in folk ways. Such methods can be bad for your body.

When you have decided to remove a nevus, it is important to carefully consider the choice of a place and a specialist. In no case should you contact cosmetologists! The cosmetologist is not a full-fledged doctor and will not be able to accurately diagnose.

Before removal, you need to consult a dermatologist in order to understand the type of nevus, the method and the possibility of removal.

What are the ways to remove nevi?

  1. Removal by laser.

This method of removing moles is very effective and is great for use in prominent places. The method does not cause discomfort, does not leave scars or scar tissues. Fast healing and no additional treatment.

If a nevus has caused concern to your doctor, before laser therapy, it is necessary to pass a histological analysis that determines its composition.

  1. Removal with the help of a surgeon.

The most reliable of the existing methods for removing moles. The big advantage of this method is the possibility of further examination of the mole. The surgeon also removes nearby tissue that may have been affected by inflammation.

  1. Removal of nevus with nitrogen.

Spot application of liquid nitrogen to the mole allows complete control of the process. At the site of the nevus, a bubble forms, and then a crust, which lasts for 1-2 weeks. It is not recommended to touch it; after a short time, it will disappear by itself.

This method is also characterized by painlessness and absence of scars. Removal of a mole with nitrogen occurs it is very fast and has no risk of re-infection.

  1. Removal with an electrocoagulator.

A special device that supplies an electric current to the nozzle actively affects the nevus. The internal nerve instantly loses its sensitivity, thereby excluding the possibility of relapse.

Please note that this method may leave small marks. Therefore, we recommend using it in inconspicuous places.

  1. Radio wave excision.

The best known removal method. The nevus is removed using high-frequency radio waves. Just as with the surgical method, you can take a mole for histological analysis. There are no pain or scars.

Contraindications to the removal of nevi.

  • Acute viral and infectious diseases
  • Pregnancy
  • Lactation
  • Menstruation
  • Diabetes

Робила лазерне шліфування шкіри обличчя у лікаря Юлії. Все сподобалось, результат хороший. Обов‘язково прийду ще до неї взимку) Дякую за гарний сервіс♥️
Пришла в куллазер на фонофорез после операции в другой клинике к Любви Сергеевне и стала постоянным клиентом. За два месяца процедур с моя ситуация значительно улучшилась. Доктор также правильно подобрала мне уход для лица и процедуры по моему типу кожи. Далее попала к Сергею Григорьевичу и тоже осталась супер довольна. Очень помог мне решить мою проблему, современный подход, ответственно относится к пациентам, всегда идет на встречу, за что огромное спасибо. Отдельное спасибо администратору Алене, всегда на связи, всегда находит подходящее время для записи. Весь персонал доброжелательный, улыбчивый - всегда приятно быть гостем.
Very good clinic and equipments. English spoken. Yulya was very professional and did an excellent job on my face in order to remove the imperfections. Highly recommande for procedures.

Юлечка Михайловна отличный специалист, доволен работой и результатом от двух процедур лазерная шлифовка (одна на средних, вторая на максимальных настройках) плюс плазмолифтинг, плюс микроигольчатый rf лифтинг. И также 2 процедуры rejuran s делал. Реабилитация 1 неделя, все процедуры делал летом, сгладились старые рубцы, новые- до 1 года практически ушли, можно конечно ещё улучшать, но в рекламе косметических средств сниматься не собираюсь, а визуальный результат меня вполне устраивает, так что очень рекомендую !)
