• No cutting or stitching required
  • Minimal discomfort 
  • Laser removal with no scarring

Up until recently, surgical excision (with stitching), electric cautery and cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen freezing) were the only techniques available for the removal of localised skin lesions such as moles, warts and skin tags.

These traditional techniques used in most general practice clinics often leave scars worse than the lesions they remove. Now, these methods are becoming obsolete.

Here at DermAesthetics, we use the revolutionary radio-wave procedure, Q-switched Nd: YAG Laser, CO2 and Erbium Glass precision cutting lasers to treat a whole spectrum of benign skin lesions in as little as a few seconds. Moreover, this process does not require any cutting or stitching resulting in a scarless mole or lesion removal.

Treatable skin lesions include:

  • Raised moles (dark as well as colourless)
  • Flat moles and freckles
  • Skin tags
  • Seborrhoeic keratosis (age warts)
  • Warts
  • Syringomas (small bumps around eyes)
  • Areolar (breast nipple area) glands
  • Tongue papillae
  • Eyelid cyst (chalazion)
  • Milia
  • Vaginal and groin moles and skin tags
  • Fordyce Spots (tiny yellowish bumps on the penis)
  • Xanthelasmas (cholesterol deposits around eyelids)

DermAesthetics is one of the few practices in Australia to offer the entire spectrum of ablative and non-ablative lasers for treating most skin lesions under one roof.

Our doctors at DermAesthetics have successfully removed over 10,000 moles and skin tags in the previous few years alone. To book a consultation with our experienced team. Please call DermAesthetics Cosmetic Procedure Perth, (08) 9380 6438 ext 1 (consultations are $250 and redeemable).

Frequently Asked Questions

At DermAesthetics, we use the latest CO2 and Erbium-glass lasers to remove localised, benign skin lesions. The lesion is first numbed and then removed using precision laser beam. The CO2 laser seals off the blood vessels as it ablates away the lesion, entailing little or no bleeding. Since the skin is not cut as such, no suturing is required.

 

The duration of this procedure depends upon the number of moles (lesions) needed to be removed in one session.

People with more than 10 moles (lesions) may require up to 40 minutes for this procedure. For those with 30 or more moles, we recommend removing the lesions in 2 or 3 separate sessions instead of one.

 

The treatment area is fully numbed using topical numbing cream and local anaesthetic injection before hand. 

 

 

Most people tolerate this treatment exceptionally well. Patients can go home straight after the procedure and do not require prolonged post-surgical hospital admission or monitoring.

 

All raised and colourless lesions are usually removed in one session. Most raised and pigmented moles may also be removed in one session.

However, some black raised moles and most flat moles (freckles) require more than one treatment session to remove.

 

In the majority of cases, no scarring occurs at all. Initial healing will take approximately 7 days.

The patient may notice that the treated area can remain pinkish-red in appearance for several weeks post-procedure (make-up can be used to easily conceal this). Over the coming weeks, the pinkness of the skin will naturally fade.

At DermAesthetics, we have the most extensive range of Fractional CO2 Lasers to help reduce any type of scarring, whether related to a procedure or trauma.

 

In the majority of cases, any lesion removed from the skin does not return or reappear. However, in very few cases, the body may regrow some of the tissue previously removed. 1 or 2 touch-up treatments are sufficient in correcting this.

 

Cosmetic mole removal is a minor surgical procedure and time off work is usually not required. Most people can return to work on the same day the procedure is performed. However, a medical certificate may be organised if necessary. 

 

This will depend upon the size and location of the mole(s) removed. The healing process can take up to a week in most cases. 

 

The removal of any skin lesion comes with possible risks and complications that include, but are not limited to:

  • Infection
  • Over-correction
  • Inadequate correction
  • Swelling and discomfort
  • Delayed healing and unfavourable scarring
  • Temporary skin discolouration of the treated area
  • ​Scarring (rare)

 

 

To be considered suitable for undergoing any elective cosmetic procedure, you must:

  • Be physically fit and active
  • Have a balanced and healthy diet
  • Be of sound emotional/mental health
  • Have realistic expectations of the outcome 

 

People unfit to undergo this procedure are:

  • Physically unwell with pre-existing medical conditions
  • Those with a history of keloid scarring
  • Those with unrealistic expectations
  • Those who are going through emotional stress and trauma
  • Those we are unable or unwilling to follow a healthy lifestyle (regarding their exercise and diet) after the procedure.

 

We recommend that you do all your grocery shopping before procedure and restock your fridge and pantry with healthy food. We also recommend that you organise for someone to give you a lift back home as driving is not recommended for the first few days after the procedure. You should also consider arranging for a family member or friend to stay with you for the first few days after your procedure.

Additionally, ensure that you avoid blood-thinning medication such as Nurofen, aspirin, heparin and warfarin. Please discuss this with your general practitioner in detail and make sure you are aware of any side effects of your current medication.

Herbal medication and nutritional supplements such as St John’s Wart, garlic, ginger, ginseng, fish oil, and homeopathic or herbal tonics should also be ceased for at least two weeks before your procedure. These substances are known for their potential to thin blood and as such, may cause excessive bleeding during and after the procedure.

 

Eat healthy food and avoid alcohol and cigarettes during the healing phase. Do not pick on the scab during the healing process and let it fall off naturally. 

 

Pricing starts from $350 for a single pea size mole and may cost up to $1,200 for a 15-30 minute session. We will be able to provide a better estimate about pricing after an inclinic or facetime consultation.

 

Consultations are $250 and redeemable towards your procedure. To secure your consultation, we require a deposit of $100, with the balance of $150 due on the day of your booking. Please call our DermAesthetics team to book your consultation, (08) 9380 6438 ext 1.
