Removal of benign moles
There are some types of benign moles. Skin tags: soft, skin colored, often pedunculated lesions, their number shows great variations. They can appear anywhere on the body, but it is founded more frequently on the neck, in the axilla, under the breast, in the groin, and on the eyelids. The age and the genetic background play role in their development.
The benign moles are skin colored papules with smooth or punctuated surface. They also can appear anywhere on the body, but especially frequently seen on the face and on the trunk.
Verruca seborrhoica mainly appears on the back, but it appears on the face too, sometimes they can be seen in great number. They are flat papules with variable diameter, they are brown, and their surface may be friable or keratotic. They usually appear after the age of 45-50 years.
The reasons for the removal of benign moles
These lesions are benign, they are not caused by HPV, in their cases there is no malignant transformation. Their removal can happen because of the following reasons: esthetic, large size, the possibility of injury, in the case of injury. The removal of benign moles depends on your decision. The benign moles can be removed by scalpel, carbon dioxide laser, electrosurgery. We use carbon dioxide laser for the removal of moles if the lesion is benign and there is no need to make histology. We do not remove pigmented moles with carbon dioxide laser.
We remove benign moles with carbon dioxide laser vaporization

The mode of action of carbon dioxide laser in the removal of benign moles
The light of the carbon dioxide laser is absorbed in water that is found in every human tissue. During the absorption heat evolves, the cells boil and explode. We use the carbon dioxide laser as a light scalpel in the case of skin tags. The benign moles and verruca seborrhoicas can be vaporized by the carbon dioxide laser.
The carbon dioxide laser vaporization has several advantages in the removal of benign moles for the patient and the physician too
- It is absorbed in 0,1 mm depth in the skin so its effect can be controlled with great accuracy.
- There is no need to make suture.
- The operation is quick so the burden for you is minimal.
- The laser light obstructs the small blood and lymphatic vessels so there are no bleeding during the operation.
- You can very rarely feel pain after the operation.
- The laser light destroys the pathogens on the surface of the skin so the wound surface will be sterile.
- The wound heals quickly and with cosmetically good results.
- You can do the simple bandage exchange at home based on the written paper about it.
How is made the removal of benign moles by carbon dioxide laser?
The operation can be done with local anesthesia using lidocain injection except in the case of small lesions. The time of the operation is between 5-30 minutes depending on the number and the size of the benign moles.
You have to do the followings after the carbon dioxide laser removal of benign moles
After the operation there will be serous discharge. The healing time is usually between 7 and 10 days depending on the location and the size of the benign moles. You have to wear a bandage during the healing time. You can do your work after the operation. Sunscreen using with at least 30 SPF for at least 3 months to prevent the brown discoloration is mandatory. You have to keep off from direct sunbathing and especially solarium use for at least 3 months.
The followings happen after the removal of benign moles by carbon dioxide laser
The pink color after the healing is part of the normal healing. It indicates that the healing has completed and it usually resolves spontaneously in 4 weeks. The removal of benign moles by carbon dioxide laser vaporization is a safe process but you have to follow the written bandage process to prevent the side effects. The side effects are rare and they are the followings: bleeding, pain, inflammation around the wound.
In some cases the removal of benign moles by carbon dioxide laser is contraindicated
Unreal patient expectations, untreated diabetes, if the patient can not avoid sunbathing.
