Moles are a completely normal occurrence. However, moles in prominent places such as the face or hands can make some people feel insecure about their skin. If you are considering having any moles removed, liquid nitrogen for mole removal is now an available treatment option at YourDerm.Ca in Calgary, AB.
Liquid Nitrogen for Mole Removal
What Is it?
Liquid nitrogen for mole removal, also called cryotherapy, is a non-invasive process used to remove unwanted moles from the skin. It can be used to remove abnormal (pre-cancerous) lesions or to remove moles for cosmetic purposes.
What Are the Benefits of Liquid Nitrogen for Mole Removal?
There are several benefits to this approach of mole removal, as the procedure is non-invasive and more comfortable than surgical approaches. Those receiving the treatment require no anesthetic and remain conscious through the whole treatment.
Additionally, the non-invasive nature of the treatment means that there is no cutting or stitching involved. This results in a very low risk of scarring or complication from the procedure. Though the area from which the mole is removed may be tender or red as the skin recovers, this is may resolve quickly once the area has healed.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Liquid nitrogen is applied to the skin by one of our certified team members. A blister will form where the liquid nitrogen has been applied, and the blister will later scab over. After a few days, the scab will fall off, and new, healthier skin underneath will unveil itself.
For a few days after the treatment, the removal site may be tender. Those who have received the treatment are advised to take special care of the area to progress the healing process. They should avoid knocking the scab or removing it prematurely, as it will come off by itself when the skin underneath is ready.
