Having moles is a completely natural aspect of being human. These small, pigmented or nonpigmented lesions that appear on our skin are clusters of cells called melanocytes responsible for producing skin pigment. Often, they can take on various hues ranging from light pink to even black, appearing either flat or raised, oval or circular in shape. However, why might you be thinking of mole removal in the UK?
While most moles are harmless, there are times when they can become more than just a visual concern, especially if you've noticed any changes in their appearance.
Considering a private mole removal for cosmetic or practical reasons? Perhaps certain moles catch on your clothes or accessories, causing discomfort. Or maybe you’ve been pondering a body mole removal to boost your confidence in summer clothing. Regardless of the reason, Dr. Rippon and our dedicated team at Rippon Medical Services are here to guide and assist you on this journey.
Dr Rippon will use surgical excision to guarantee permanent mole removal. This procedure can leave a small scar which will improve over time. The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic to reduce discomfort. Dr Rippon will use a scalpel to excise the mole, leaving a small linear scar roughly the size of the mole removed which will improve over time. (PRP can be used to improve and shorten the time of improvement - please see the use of platelet rich plasma on our website). The wound will then be stitched and a dressing applied. Benefits of removing moles by surgery is that moles can be sent off for histology to test for malignancy. Prior to treatment, Dr Rippon will go through a medical aesthetic consultation with you. He will assess your mole and decide whether it is suitable for treatment. If treatment is decided you will be able to book an appointment for the procedure to be carried out by Dr Rippon at his clinic, Rippon Medical Services, 2 Spinners Yard, Fisher Street, Carlisle, CA3 8RE. You will be given after care instructions and will be reviewed at 7 days by Dr Rippon for removal of any sutures and have your wound checked. You will be covered by our aftercare procedure promise and be given access to advice post procedure at any time.
