Radiosurgical Mole Removal

There are some attributes in our body that, sometimes, hamper us from feeling beautiful because of the present-day aesthetic standards of our society.  Innocent marks on our body such as scars, birthmarks, and even moles divert the attention of people, making them fail to notice our “assets”.  To some people, this is unbearable and is often the cause of a lack of self-esteem.  If you believe that you have to do something to remove this flaw that is affecting your life, why not opt for radiosurgical mole removal?

Radiosurgical mole removal, or radio mole removal as it is sometimes called, is the newest form of treatment to remove moles and other forms of skin lesions.  It makes use of radio waves that make it possible to remove moles without bleeding and scars.  Since it is conducted in a clinic, it is very safe and is an approved medical practice by the local health bureau.  Here are some facts that you should know about radiosurgical mole removal.

Where is Radiosurgical Mole Removal Used?

Radiosurgical mole removal is a treatment method used to remove skin lesions such as moles, warts, and scars.  This one-time surgery does not take long and is therefore an option for out-patients.  One session lasts about 20 minutes and entails minimal preparation.  Radiosurgical mole removal is known to be very efficient in removing skin lesions without causing scarring or bleeding.  Because of its “super healing” abilities, it is preferred by most dermatologists.
Because scarring is minimal, radiosurgical mole therapy is often used in mole removal treatments on the face.  Undergoing this form of treatment also makes the patient less prone to skin infections.

Procedure of Radiosurgical Mole Removal

A local anaesthetic is administered to a patient prior to the exposure to the radio waves.  High-frequency radio waves are then emitted to targeted skin areas where the skin lesion to be removed is located.  This treatment works by making the liquid in cells evaporate.  Since cells are 80% liquid, exposure to such high-frequency radio waves causes the cells to vanish.  Because there was no excision done on the skin, no damaged tissues and blood vessels wound, there will be no scab formation or even bleeding.  This is the reason why no scar forms after this procedure is conducted.  Healing usually takes two to four weeks.  By week six, no evidence of a mole or post-surgery scar can even be seen.

Are there Side-Effects?

Because radiosurgical mole removal is not a common procedure that is known to most households, misconceptions tend to arise.  It is not true that the radio waves emitted during the procedure can cause any form of cancer.  In truth, this is a preferred treatment method for cancerous moles (melanoma) because cells are not merely removed; they are liquidated.

Treatment Cost

This relatively advanced form of radiosurgical mole removal is understandably expensive because of its super healing effects.  Therefore, you need to prepare £500-1000 for the surgery.  The good news is you can use medical insurance to cover the expenses for this type of surgery, so ask your medical insurance provider now to work on the arrangements for you.
