If you have unsightly moles on your face or body, you may choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons. Most face and body moles are harmless, but occasionally moles pose a health risk. When a mole changes in appearance it is advised that you have it evaluated by a physician.
Moles can be a physical distraction, marring your appearance. The most vital issue in mole removal is you do not want to be left with a visible scar. At Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we perform professional mole removal with a highly-effective system.
There are several current methods employed to remove moles. At Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center we use an advanced system for mole removal, called a Hyfrecator. A mole appearing on the face must be removed carefully and correctly. Our mole removal system is an electrosurgical generator that removes moles safely. As moles are often more than “skin deep,” with part of the structure existing in the lower levels of the skin structure, removal requires precision treatment.
Our system works to destroy the mole, with the added benefit of limiting any potential bleeding. The system emits electrical pulses directly into the mole structure. This device does not cut tissue and uses only a very low-power current delivered through a probe. The treatment is easy to tolerate and requires no anesthetic, but a topical numbing cream is applied for your comfort. Our focus on safe and effective treatments is important – you can trust that we use FDA-approved, safe devices for all our aesthetic treatments, including mole removal.
The Hyfrecator has two different modes, called desiccation (when the electrical energy is applied, killing the targeted skin cells) and fulguration (when a spark is generated by the probe with a higher temperature, carbonizing the tissue at the contact point and just below the surface). The targeted electrical energy destroys the structure of the mole.
Flat dark moles can be quickly and easily removed with this device. Our patients tell us the procedure was far faster and easier than expected. For some larger moles, it may be necessary to have a second treatment, but typically just one treatment is needed.
Moles, medically-termed “nevi,” are a natural skin anomaly. They appear when skin cells have grown in a clustered formation and have various colors, ranging from pale pink to a bluish color, to black. The various types of moles include:
Moles often develop and then darken when the skin is exposed to the sun. You should protect your skin with sunblock to help ward off the development or darkening of moles. Some people are genetically programmed to develop more moles, with new ones appearing over time. As they appear, you can have them removed safely with our advanced mole removal system.

If you are living with face or body moles, skin tags, visible veins, or other flaw, we can help you achieve smooth, unblemished skin.
