Other than the healing time, there is little to no downtime or recovery period for these treatments.
The flat wound from mole removal will heal over one to two weeks as new skin forms and redness decreases.
A local anesthetic can be used if necessary.
A special radio-frequency loop shaver can be used to remove moles and other raised lesions leaving a flat surface.
Treatment of moles or nevi is designed to smooth or remove raised or elevated skin lesions so they blend in better with the skin surface.
The cost for mole, nevi and skin lesion treatment will be discussed at the time of the pre-operative visit and depends on the size, location and number of lesions.
