-Vitamin E
-Color (blush, eye shadow, lipstick. Etc.)
– Container with lid
-Measuring Utensils

Written Directions:
Start off by taking a spoonful of Vaseline and putting it into your ladle or bowel.
CAREFULLY heat it over the stove for around 20 seconds or microwave it for 2 minutes in 10 second intervals.
Make sure it doesn’t get too hot! And be careful not to get burned. This heats up in a matter of seconds. You don’t want this to catch on fire, so heat it on very low flame.
Next, pour it into your container. If it is still REALLY hot then you can put it in the freezer for a minute or two before you add the other ingredients.
Add in two or three vitamin e capsules if you wish and stir. Add color as desired. I usually use a generous amount of color because I like mine to be really pigmented.

Shave Excision For Mole Removal

Welcome Back! For this week’s blog topic on ‘Non-Laser procedures to remove mole’ we will be discussing the Shave Excision procedure, which is quite a simple procedure done not only to remove the moles, but other unwanted skin-growths (tumors and lesions) as well. However, here in this blog we will only concentrate on mole removal. The mole removal is done with a sharp razor, which is then soothed with an ointment (usually antibiotic) to quicken the healing process. At times an electrode is utilized to clean the edges so as to make the procedure scar-less.

ideasonmoleremovalThe procedure is generally performed with local anesthesia, which makes it completely pain-less. After the procedure, the dermatologist will send the growth to a laboratory to figure out the nature of the growth (malignant or benign).

How Is a Shave Excision Performed?

As mentioned above, the Shave excision is done under local anesthesia that guarantees patient’s comfort and that he/she will not feel any pain during the procedure.

Generally the procedure remains same for small or big moles, which include –

  1. Injecting the area with an anesthetic or numbing medicine. The injected analgesic assists with the procedure on the grounds that the sedative causes the mole to rise above the skin level, making the removal a bit easy.
  2. Cutting the growth off with a sharp razor by making multiple even cuts. The patient may feel a pushing sensation during this, yet will not feel pain.
  3. Performing electrosurgical feathering, done by utilizing an electrode (small dermal loop) to smooth (feather) the edges of the wound. Electrosurgical feathering helps expel the residual mole cells. It additionally minimizes scarring (blending the wound edges with the surrounding skin).
  4. Applying chemical (generally aluminum chloride hexa-hydrate) to stop the bleeding episode.
  5. Cleaning the wound and applying anti-biotic ointment for safeguarding the wound from infection and faster healing.
  6. Last step is covering the area with a bandage (sterilized).


After-Care

The patient may have a burning sensation or discomfort at the place of mole for which the dermatologists prescribe pain-killers. Another important thing is ‘scarring’. The scar will be red for a couple of weeks, yet it will get lighter with time. Be patient as healing will take time.

The patient should apply any one of the following to lighten the scar –

  1. Topical silicone gel or sheets
  2. Petroleum-based ointments
  3. Vitamin A cream

It is important that the wound is protected against the direct sunlight, as sunburn can permanently damage or darken the wound.

Call your dermatologist if there is excessive scarring (scarring that is hard, dome-shaped or raised).

Non laser surgery to remove mole

mole-1Recently I was having a conversation with one of my school friends and she was telling me that she had gone through a surgery to remove a mole on her forehead and that she had been very happy with the procedure and the results. Since, I was a veteran in this topic I immediately said ‘Great! So, you have undergone a laser mole removal procedure?’ To that she replied, ‘A what? No!’ and she left the conversation there, as she got a call from someone and she has to rush, leaving me wondering ‘what is that other option that she made use of to get rid of her mole?’

So, again I was on a mission to know more about mole removal procedures. Again, I started with the Google search and learned more about moles, need to remove them and the procedures to remove them besides Laser technology.

What I learned through my search was, despite the fact that mole removal is urgent for patients whose moles developed melanoma; numerous patients decide to have their moles removed because they dislike its presence on their body part or they take it as a precautionary measure (safety against skin-cancer). For patients with moles that are cancerous, surgery (non-laser) is the most successful removal method. For the individuals who need their moles removed for restorative purpose can opt for surgical, laser, or natural mole removal procedures.

Depending upon the type, size and number of moles, Dermatologist makes use of the following techniques to remove the moles –

  1. Cutting it off – Moles may be cut off with a surgical scissors or scalpel. A few moles can be “shaved” off flush with the skin. Different moles may have cells that are deeply rooted under the skin, so your dermatologist may make a cut that is a bit deeper to remove the mole from its root. This will help in preventing the mole from growing back, however the cut made for the removal require stitches.
  2. Burning it off – The dermatologists make use of an electric current that passes through a wire making the wire hot, which is then used to burn off the superficial skin layers. Multiple sessions may be needed in order to completely remove the mole. Various skin tags, moles are removed by burning them through the slender stem that connects them to the skin. The high temperature helps avert bleeding.
  3. Freezing it with fluid nitrogen – Your dermatologist will spray or swab liquid nitrogen (super cold) on the mole. The mole will fall off, leaving behind a small blister that will heal with time.

All these procedures may hurt a little, however your dermatologist will make use of anesthetic to numb the area before he/she starts. In the event that the procedure causes any bleeding, that could easy be dealt with by applying a medicine followed by a proper bandage on the wound.mole-removal-salt-lake-city

The best part is the fact that these procedures leave no scars.

To clear things up some more, here is a quick chart with three fields – Mole type, Features and Treatment –

TYPE FEATURES TREATMENT
Moles (Nevi) Round or oval, can be flat or raised, color can range from tan to dark brown Surgical excision with suture repair
Congenital Nevi Often larger than ¼ inch in diameter. Chances of developing into melanoma are higher. Surgical excision
Atypical moles (Dysplastic Nevi) Usually oval in shape, larger than normal moles that are darker in the center with or without “fuzzy” margins Shave excision for a changing mole or Surgical excision with suture repair

 

My Personal Experience with Mole Removal Laser Surgery

To start my weekly blog of personal stories and first hand information on mole removal, I would like to begin with the story that saw me pen it down to a nearly professional blog series. Talking about my personality, I won’t hesitate to mention that I was a self-conscious child and a teen-ager. I was short, chubby, had big eyes, big cheeks, all in all not a very cute kid (all in my opinion). Being chubby during pre-teen and teen-age was of course my concern, but not the biggest. My biggest concern was the big, black mole on my right cheek. I hated it deeply, since it was hideous. While looking in any of the glass items (with strong reflection) or even in a mirror, I would simply gaze at my mole. I became habitual of investing hours gazing in the mirror attempting to work out how I could position my face in photographs with the goal that my mole didn’t look so monstrous. I never entirely worked it out so (can say now after making a comparison between the photographs with the mole and photos after the mole removal procedure), I simply notice that irritable thing on my face.

mole-removal
I strongly believe that if you dislike something, transform/wipe out it from your life, and it was time to apply the same hypothesis to my mole.
Till now, I only talked about that one mole on my face (biggest enemy), but I had a big mole on my back as well. According to me, the mole on my face was quite big, but the dermatologist was of a different opinion (according to him it was small and can be ignored). Nevertheless, I was so adamant that I wanted to get rid of the same, so he suggested me to go for a laser surgery to remove mole. During my first session with him, he told me about the laser procedure, which is common for the cases wherein the mole is clearly visible on the skin’s upper layer, involve either Erbium:YAG laser or CO2 mole removal laser. Erbium:YAG laser does the removal layer-wise, while peeling the surface of the skin and is suitable for moles on the face. The CO2 mole removal laser is quite an aggressive and powerful procedure used for deeper effects.
For my face mole, the dermatologist utilized a Erbium:YAG laser to remove or zap away the mole. Since the mole size was not that big, there was no requirement for any sedatives/ anesthetics. The sting of the laser brought tears to my eyes, yet it wasn’t painful to the point that I needed to cut somebody (somebody here would be the dermatologist). The entire procedure was carried out in around 5 seconds.

After the mole was removed, my skin was red; open with marginally bleeding wounds. The dermatologist advised me to use an antibiotic cream and a sheet of Duoderm (synthetic skin for covering the wound). The idea is to safeguard the wound from getting wet, infected or rotting. I sincerely followed all of his instructions that resulted in quick recovery and the wound gained its skin. After few more weeks the skin on the wound matched to my original skin tone and now no-body (including me) could not tell where that big, black mole used to be.

Mole Removal Non Surgical 2
For my mole on the back, the dermatologist suggested the same procedure with an anesthetic (since the size and time it would take to remove would be more than the previous one). Because of numbness, I could not really feel what was going on, but the procedure took around a minute and the only thing I felt is something brushing against my skin. As expected, the care instructions were the same with a bit long healing time.
It’s been few years since I got my moles removed and in my opinion it was worth doing that as I totally cherish my mole-free face.
With my first belief that I have already shared with you, another one is ‘when you look good you feel good, and when you feel good you look good’.
So, what do you think of my mole removal story? Comment below and let me know…..till then look good and feel good…….

Mole Removal Methods

In this blog, I will be discussing and comparing all the mole removal methods (already discussed in the previous blogs) while taking into accounts the pros and cons of each of them. The mole removal methods under comparison include –

Mole-Removal
a) Cryotherapy (Freezing)
b) Laser
c) Diathermy (Cauterization)
d) Surgical Excision
And the categories are –
a) Method
b) Histological examination
c) Aesthetic Results
d) Risks
e) Recommendations
That was the initial preparation; let’s start the comparison.
Cryotherapy (Freezing)
a) Method – Liquid nitrogen (-196oC) is sprayed with a hand device on the mole makes crystals of ice in the skin cells, thus killing the skin cells. The procedure does not require any kind of anesthetics.
b) Histological examination- There is no histological examination (it is difficult to have one). So, it becomes impossible to know the nature of the mole (benign or malignant?).
c) Aesthetic Results – The method works best for superficial viral warts, but in case of moles there are chances of scar formation (since freezing has to go deep down the skin to remove the root of the mole).
d) Risks – Risks are there, in light of the fact that the nature of the mole is not known. It may be a tumor. Besides, it is difficult to figure out if the mole was completely removed or not. The formation of scar is normal with this procedure.
e) Recommendations – Mostly for the skin conditions like – removal of superficial lesions or growths of viral origin.
Laser

Laser-Mole-Removal-450x287
a) Method – Under local anesthetics, a laser beam is pointed towards the mole area, and the tissue is burned, evaporated with extreme heat.
b) Histological examination – Histological examination is led just if the doctor collects a specimen of the lesion before going ahead with the laser surgery. At exactly that point it can be resolved whether the mole malignant or benign.
c) Aesthetic Results – The results are excellent with completely scar-less removal.
d) Risks – On the off chance that histological examination is not led there are risks (malignant or benign), also, it is difficult to figure out if the mole is completely removed or not.
e) Recommendations –The procedure is recommended for mole removal, skin lesions of viral origin, treatment of superficial lesions, etc.
Diathermy (Cauterization)
a) Method – Under local anesthetics, the mole is burned away using an electric discharge from a Diathermic device.
b) Histological examination – Histological examination is directed just if the doctor collects a specimen of the skin cells before going ahead with the diathermy. It is important to understand that the nature of the mole can only be determined before the procedure and not during or after the procedure.
c) Aesthetic Results – The results are excellent for small moles, for moles with deep roots superficial scar formation is normal, which might fade away with time and proper medication.
d) Risks – Besides, the risk with the nature of the mole there are chances that the mole is partially removed, which might lead to its re-growth. Scar formation can also happen.
e) Recommendations – Basically for the skin lesion removal that are superficial.
Surgical Excision

Understanding-the-Most-Effective-Blackhead-Removal-Methods
a) Method – The specialist performs an oval excision keeping a tight safety margin. Then the mole is removed and the wound is stitched. The procedure is done under local anesthetics.
b) Histological examination – The Histological examination is done for two reasons – to determine the nature of the mole and to determine the range of the safety margins.
c) Aesthetic Results – The results depends upon the caliber of the surgeon, the choice of the suturing method, the mole location and last but not the least on the way the patient deals with the operated area.
d) Risks – The procedure might lead to the inflammation or/and formation of pathological scar, yet these are exceptionally uncommon. Also, the histological report determines the risk of having a malignant mole.
e) Recommendations – The Surgical excision is the only medically recommended procedure for mole (benign or malignant) removal.

 

Is It Safe to Perform Mole Removal At Home?

moleNow that we have reached to the end of our blog series, I would admit that there are many DIY mole removal kits and certain home remedies available that guarantees safe mole removal, but it is important that you read enough about them before actually implementing them on your mole.

So, here is a blog focusing on potential risks associated with removing moles at home.

Firstly, it is important that we look in to the reasons why people try their hand in removing moles and other skin lesions at home. A few reasons include -:

  1. The Financial need – they would prefer not to experience the cost of having surgery.
  2. Convenience – it spares effort and time.
  3. Embarrassment – they would prefer not to make a visit to the specialist about their moles.

Basically the procedure of removing the moles at home is done using home mole removal kits. The basic ingredient of these kits is a cream or lotion that is to be applied directly on to the mole to be removed. The kit also contains a needle and/or emery board, the purpose of which is to scratch the mole until it is completely removed (superficially).

Note – Keeping the chances of malignant moles on top priority, it is best to have moles removed by an expert.

Risks Associated with Home Mole Removal

Moles-Removal-e1415452620909

  1. Lack of Histological examination – Before removing the moles, it is imperative to send the sample for Histological examination, which can only be done by a dermatologist. At the point when the procedure is done at home using DIY kit, there is no way the examination can be done and any evidence of malignant mole goes unnoticed.
  2. Scarring – The most common issue with removing a mole in general is the formation of scar. When the removal is done by a dermatologist, he/she takes all the necessary measures to ensure there is no to little scarring post procedure. But, with home mole removal kits it is possible that a person might end up removing not only the mole but the skin underneath, leading to unattractive scars, including scars that are indented. This becomes even more horrible if the scar appears on the face or other visible body part. These scars may then be corrected using corrective surgeries that are much more expensive then medically approved mole removal procedures.
  3. Allergies – The creams and lotions provided with home mole removal kits are not intended to work with every skin type. There are chances that the products might cause allergies, rashes or irritation for some individuals with sensitive skin. Also, there are many types of moles (flat, raised, wrinkled, hairy, etc) making it impossible to determine whether or not the kit will work on all or any one of them.


Despite the fact that moles are unattractive or in some cases annoying, there is no reason to harm yourself or bringing on a scar. Just do the right thing and find an experienced dermatologist to undergo a procedure with minimal risk and maximum aesthetic results.mole_removal
