While facial moles are typically not dangerous, many patients feel that the moles have a negative effect on their appearance. Additionally, oral lesions or growths can be harmful to both patients’ health and their appearance. At Bellaire Facial, Oral & Dental Implant Surgery, we offer treatment to remove facial moles and lesions. When you visit our office for a consultation, Dr. Iero can discuss your options with you and go over the details of treatment.
How are moles and lesions removed?
The most common method for removing facial moles and lesions is using a CO2 laser. The high-energy beams of light from the laser can cut and then eliminate the growths. Surgical removal is also an option, but laser treatment offers a variety of advantages, such as
- Less bleeding
- Decreased swelling
- Minimal scarring
- Less post-operative discomfort
Additionally, laser treatment eliminates the need for skin grafts or stitches, and many times, anesthesia is also unnecessary. When you visit the office for your first appointment, Dr. Iero can go over all the advantages of laser treatment for removing moles and lesions. It may not always be an option, depending on your condition, but when you qualify, it’s beneficial to your health and appearance.
Surgical removal of moles and lesions typically requires the use of anesthesia to numb the area. Dr. Iero will then carefully remove the growth from the skin, using stitches to close up the area if necessary. Dr. Iero has years of training and experience and will make sure there is minimal scarring.
