At Perfect Image Consultants, we use a laser to remove moles, warts and skin tags which is a painless treatment and gives an almost perfect result. It is an alternative, more effective treatment to surgical removal, cryotherapy, radiofrequency or chemical methods.

Our wart removal treatment has also been very successful and we have managed to remove warts and verrucas without them returning- leaving our patients very happy.
The skin check consultation will involve the use of dermatoscopy. The use of dermatoscopy can be used to diagnose lesions which are not clinically suspicious. If the lesion examined under dermatoscopy is diagnosed as benign then we can proceed to remove the lesion.
To remove this lesion local anaesthetic will be injection into the area and the lesion will be removed using Nd YAG Laser.
It is always advised to have lesions (moles, skin tags, warts and cysts) pre-checked by your GP prior to making an appointment. If histological diagnosis is imperative then it is better dealt under NHS care.
What to expect
Before the treatment
Your doctor will assess your areas of concern and advise whether further investigation (histology) is required. If so, the necessary arrangements will be made and occasionally patients are referred in order to confirm that there are no contraindications. We would also advise patients to consult their GPs for advice prior to booking a consultation.
During the treatment
Your doctor will mark the lesion(s) to be removed and local anaesthesia will be given at each site. The laser will then be used to cauterise each lesion. The procedure will be quick and comfortable.
After the treatment
There is no recovery time and you may leave the clinic when you are ready. However, the treated areas will look ‘scabby’ and darker than the surrounding skin. This initial scab will fall off in 5-7 days, after which a second scab will form and fall off in the next 14 days. After initial healing, the appearance of the treated area will improve and a very light mark, if any, may be left behind.
In most cases there are no stitches involved and chances of any scarring are negligible.

Anyone can have a mole removed, however, is it advised to have the mole checked by your GP before having it removed. The NHS can only remove moles if they are potentially dangerous.
How long does the laser mole removal procedure take?

“What does a mole look like?
- 1 colour – most often brown, but can also be tan, black, red, pink, blue, skin-toned or colourless.
- Round in shape.
- Flat or slightly raised.
- The same in appearance from month to month.
A person’s moles may not all look alike and even in the same person moles can vary in size, shape and colour. Some have hair and some will change slowly over time, possibly even disappearing.
Moles can appear anywhere on the body including the scalp, between the fingers and toes, on the soles and palms and even under the nails.
Once the mole has been removed you will be able to carry on with your normal daily activities straight away. We advise you not to touch the area the mole was removed from until it has healed completely. The healing will take 3- 6 weeks but it may take longer for the skin at the site of the removed mole to return to the colour of the surrounding skin.
Is it possible to send a mole for histology after laser mole removal?
No, If you are having laser mole removal it is not possible to send your mole for histology. We advise you to have your mole examined by your GP and, if necessary, have a sample of the mole sent for histology prior to the laser mole removal treatment.
