The Skin Centre routinely carries out mole and birthmark removal.
There are many varieties of moles. They can be described as junctional, compound, intradermal or congenital moles. They can be removed by excision, a shave excision (requires no sutures) or laser surgery. The type and size of mole will determine the treatment recommended. For a consultation, please contact us.
Birthmarks are common skin conditions that occur at or near birth. They appear in a variety of colours, ranging from red to brown. There are several ways of treating these marks, and it will depend on the age of the individual, and the birthmark at hand.
At The Skin Centre, we offer birthmark removal for a variety of different types. We treat marks including; epidermal and sebacceous naevi, café au lait patches, port wine stain birthmarks, hemangiomas (strawberry patches) and spider naevi. In most cases, laser treatment is recommended for birth mark and mole removal. We have seen great success with the reduction, and in some cases, removal of these birthmarks.
With some birthmarks such as the hemangioma, it's important to treat them as early as possible. The Skin Centre has two on-site theatres, where the procedures are conducted. Patients as young as three weeks have had successful laser at our Centre. For more information or to make an appointment, please contact us.
