Manual Excision Using a Conventional Scalpel
This is the traditional method for removing birthmarks. This is the best way to remove a mole or birthmark that have chances of being cancerous.
The birthmark itself is removed as well as a part of the surrounding healthy skin (biopsy).
Removal with Voltaic Arc or Voltaic Plasma
There are many ways to remove benign moles and the use of AC electrical arc is one of them. Like aesthetic lasers, voltaic arc (also referred to as plasma) allows easy removal of benign birthmarks and moles. If the mole is removed properly and the aftercare is followed, the risks of scarring are very low, however, a minor likelihood of scarring exist despite the method used and cannot be completely ruled out.
Benign Mole Removal
The technique generally used for benign mole removal is the spray operation
If the benign lesion is rooted between the dermis and epidermis, a slightly deeper ablation (or burn) may be required to remove the lesion in one session only. Starting from the top and working all the way down to level them off with the surrounding skin area.
Benign Mole Removal Case Study
This aesthetic procedure was carried out in April 2014.
The subject was 20 years old at the time of the aesthetic procedure. The type of moles in question was rather superficial, therefore the spray operation could be used in order to level off the moles with the surrounding skin in order to achieve good aesthetic results. You can watch in the video below.
Plasma Mole Removal Case Study.
The subject was approximately 45 years of age at the time of the treatment.
The mole was benign and removed for aesthetic reasons only, it was neither inflamed nor red.
The objective of the aesthetic practitioner was to level off the mole with the surrounding skin area in order to achieve the best possible results.
The numbing product used, was topical anesthetic (10% lidocaine).
Mole Removal on the Scalp Using Plasma
The subject was under 20 years of age at the time of the treatment. The skin growth was previously diagnosed as benign, therefore no medical intervention was required. Also, the lesion was neither itchy nor inflamed, therefore it could have been safely removed for aesthetic reasons. It was reported that the benign growth was only bothering the individual when combing his hair.
Topical numbing product applied for 1 hour using occlusion.
