How to Get Rid of Moles: Methods and Scarring

Virtually anyone who is considering to remove moles is reluctant for any scars that remain. The scarring is dependent on which treatment method is used to remove moles:

1. How bad are the scars from the trimming of a mole?

When removing a mole by cutting, there is always cut back a piece of tissue around the mole. This leads to an ellipse of which both sides could relatively tightly be attached to each other. The larger the mole, the larger the cut, the more stitches should be used and the more you'll see the scar.

2. Are there visible scars from the burning method to get rid of moles?

By creating a superficial burn or coagulate fire no deep wound cut is needed. A burn usually heals much nicer than a cutting wound. If you let burn off a mole, there is no need to stitch and the wound will ultimately have little or no visible scar. Burning method is an excellent method to remove moles.

3. How striking are the scars as a mole is frozen off or shaved?

By freezing and scraping a scrape wound is created, not a cut wound. A scrape wound usually heals much better than a (deep & wide) cut. There is also produced a scab quickly by nature, so it need not be stitched and is not easily infected. Note that the larger the mole that is removed, the greater and deeper the scrape, and the harder the residual scar heals.

4. What about the scars left behind when you punch a mole?

With a punch you have to cut pretty deep into the skin. The wound is deep, but very small in area. As a result, only 1 or 2 stitches are needed and therefore the scar of a punched mole usually heals quite fast and relatively nice. Because of to the very limited diameter of the punching method, this method is rarely used to get rid of moles.

5. How striking are the scars in case of laser treatment?

The laser scar usually retains the color and texture of the remaining skin. This leads to only a small "dent" in the skin surface when removing the mole by laser treatment. The scar usually heals much nicer and smoother than cut because there are no incisions. Note that the larger the laser surface, the greater and deeper the indentation will be.

The larger a mole is, the deeper the mole roots in the skin surface, the deeper they have to infiltrate in the skin and the bigger and bolder the scar usually becomes.

Now at the end of this article some preventive help, tips and ideas for scars caused by mole removal.

You cannot prevent biopsy scars of mole removal on your own initiative... But you can ensure that the removed mole heals better and faster. Here are some facts, tips and advice about the scars that can result from the removal of moles:

Always keep in mind that permanent, visible scars can be caused by getting rid of a mole.

Keep wounds and scars as dry as possible. Not only for wound healing, but also for any dissolvable stitches.

Keep wounds and scars as clean as possible. If a wound becomes infected, the wound healing and the disruption will cause uglier scars.

The better your overall health, the better the wound will heal after removing a mole.

Scars caused by a removed mole cure better if you eat healthy, exercise and don't smoke.

One person makes significantly more scar tissue than the other. The more scar tissue, the more noticeable the scar will be.

Let - by way of "testing" - first have a mole removed on your body and then in your face.

Keep fresh scars as much as possible from the sun. Direct sunlight can make a scar permanently discolored.

If you're still growing, the scars will grow with you, so it is ideal for removing a mole only if you are grown.

If a physician leaves the choice completely up to you, then getting rid of the mole is not medically necessary.

You can use scar cream (Biodermal etc.) or scar patches (Scarban others) to improve recovery of scars.
