Mole Removal Freezing

In a society where flawless, unblemished skin is the definition of a woman’s (or sometimes, man’s) beauty, people cannot help but feel that skin blemishes like moles need to be removed to “look better”.  Some people may find the need of others to remove moles to feel beautiful as ridiculous, but it isn’t really anybody else’s concern.  If you aren’t happy with how you look because of a mole, you have every right to do with it as you please.  

There are also times when unhealthy skin lesions such as cancerous moles (called melanoma) need to be removed to avoid any health risks to the person involved.  In this case, the decision to remove a mole is normal and acceptable to almost all people.  There are different ways on how to do this, but mole removal freezing is slowly becoming the talk of the town in terms of mole removal procedures.  Mole removal freezing is a fast, easy, and economical way to deal with clustered skin pigmentations.  If you are interested, you better read this article.

The Process of Mole Removal Freezing

Mole removal freezing should be conducted by a licensed professional health care provider such as a dermatologist.  The dermatologist will start with evaluating the mole(s) to determine whether or not it is cancerous.  After the initial assessment, the doctor will begin disinfecting the area.  He/she will then prepare the liquid nitrogen, the substance used to “freeze” your mole’s cells, causing them to die.  Since liquid nitrogen kills cells, pain may be felt.  Therefore, most doctors prefer administering a local anaesthetic to help with the pain.
Mole removal freezing works by applying liquid nitrogen by using a cotton swab over the mole.  The cells of the mole, including the roots embedded deep into the surface of the skin, will instantly die.  Since liquid nitrogen may also affect the healthy skin around the mole, it is better to let the dermatologist with the right equipment do the procedure to avoid unnecessary skin injuries.
After the mole removal freezing, the mole will look reddish and swollen for 3-4 days.  Afterwards, a scab will form and will peel off or fade by itself in 7-10 days.  The area will appear pinkish or pale, but will later subside to minimal or no scarring.

Benefits of Mole Removal Freezing

Mole removal freezing is fast and cheap.  It is also effective enough to prevent the recurrence of mole growth because it can reach the deeply embedded roots of the mole.  Some people claim to do this procedure by themselves at home, virtually spending less than £5.  However, without anaesthetic and the supervision of a doctor, pain, injuries, and infection are at risk of taking place.

Expected Treatment Cost

A local welder’s shop is one of the many places you can go to for some liquid nitrogen.  You may also buy a small amount for less than £5.  However, undergoing mole removal freezing under the supervision of a dermatologist is better because your condition will be closely monitored until you are declared well.  Going to the doctor’s clinic to freeze your mole will cost around £200.
