Radiofrequency surgery and intense pulsed light are successful treatments for raised moles, pigmented spots and small blood vessels with minimal scarring.
You must still wear a mask.
Open for all services, including skin checks, mole mapping, cosmetic mole removal, IPL, rosacea assessment and treatment, microneedling and LED light therapy.
Mole and skin tag removal consultation
Is that "mole" actually a skin cancer?
f there is any question about the mole potentially being malignant, or if the doctor suspects skin cancer, a biopsy will be taken from the mole as part of your mole removal procedure to obtain the most accurate possible diagnosis.
If the biopsy result confirms skin cancer, we offer medical and surgical treatment options or provide a referral to a plastic surgeon, if required.
If you have a radiofrequency or BBL/intense pulsed light procedure to remove a mole or skin lesion, we don't charge any out-of-pocket expense for the associated medical consultation or biopsy.
Send us a photo of your mole
Save time by sending us a photo of the mole or skin lesion you would like to have removed via our web form.
We'll be in touch within the next 2 working days to let you know if your mole is suitable for cosmetic removal with radiofrequency surgery or BBL intense pulsed light treatment.
Mole removal procedures
Cosmetic procedures aim to remove or destroy the mole or lesion while minimising damage to surrounding normal skin. Low-scarring methods allow the surgeon/operator to accurately target the lesion of concern and remove it successfully.
The main methods we use to remove moles and other skin lesions are:
- radiofrequency surgery: for removing raised skin lesions such as dermal moles, seborrhoeic keratoses and skin tags
- BBL intense pulsed light therapy: for removing flat pigmented (red or brown) lesions such as lentigines (freckles/age spots) and telangiecatasia (capilaries/blood vessels)
Traditional surgical procedures for mole removal do not allow such fine control, and there may be more scarring. Because these traditional lesion removal procedures are cheaper, they may be preferred for mole removal in areas where a good cosmetic outcome is not so important, for example on the back or scalp.
Our doctor, nurse or skin therapist will help you decide which treatment is suitable for your mole or skin tag removal, taking into account your desired outcome and budget.
Radiofrequency mole and skin lesion removal
Radiofrequency ablation (removal) is a minimal scarring method for raised lesions such as moles, fibrous papules, sebaceous hyperplasia and seborrhoeic keratoses.
This treatment is a good option for facial mole removal and the removal of moles in other highly visible areas of the skin.
BBL intense pulsed light
BBL intense pulsed light is used to remove flat pigmented lesions such as lentigines ("age spots") and blood vessels/angiomas.
This is a useful method if there is general skin damage from the sun or there are large numbers of lesions that need treatment.
Low level light therapy
Low level light therapy (also known as LED phototherapy) has skin rejuvenation effects, but it is mainly used in combination with other mole removal treatments.
Low level light therapy commencing before a cosmetic procedure, and for 1-2 weeks after the removal of moles or skin lesions, enhances wound healing and helps return the skin to its optimal post-procedure appearance.
Moles and skin lesions suitable for cosmetic removal
A skin lesion is a spot, lump or patch on the skin which appears different from the surrounding skin. A lesion can be flat or raised, dark or light, rough or smooth. Most lesions are harmless and appear as a result of normal skin development, ageing or long-term sun exposure.
Skin cancer is a type of lesion which can continue to grow and potentially cause damage to the surrounding tissue or spread to other parts of the body. The most common types of skin cancer are melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Skin cancer always requires treatment.
Other skin lesions may not cause serious health issues, but they can be unsightly, uncomfortable, inconvenient or simply unwanted. Many of these can be removed quickly and with minimal scarring, such as:
