Help Choosing

Help Choosing

When deciding between mole removal by shave excision, curettage, elliptical excision or laser surgery, the most suitable option should consider the type and size of mole, desired cosmetic outcome, and tolerance for recovery time and potential scarring.

  1. Mole Shave Excision No Histology: Best for raised moles, this method involves minimal discomfort and no sutures, with a quick recovery. It may leave a minimal scar, making it a good choice for less visible areas. It might not be effective for flat or deeply pigmented moles.
  2. Mole Curettage Excision No Histology: Suitable for smaller, superficial moles, this technique involves scraping off the mole. It's quick and typically doesn't require stitches, resulting in a fast recovery. This method is less ideal for larger or deeply pigmented moles and may not achieve as smooth a cosmetic result as other methods.
  3. Mole Ellipse Excision No Histology: This method, involving cutting out the mole and stitching the skin, is effective for flat or potentially problematic moles. It's more invasive than shave or curettage excision, leading to a longer recovery period and a more noticeable scar. It's a good option for moles where complete removal is a priority over minimal scarring.
  4. Mole Laser Removal No Histology: Ideal for small, flat, non-cancerous moles, this method uses laser beams to remove the mole. It's less invasive and typically results in minimal scarring. However, it might require multiple sessions and is not suitable for large or deeply pigmented moles.

To discuss the possible options, or for assistance in determining the most suitable modality, consult with a specialist or book an appointment with a doctor.
