Laser Mole / Skin Bumps Removal
How does Laser Removal Work?
Dr Edwin uses the eCO2 ablative laser for removal of Moles, skin-tags and other skin bumps.
Its precise nature means that Laser Removal is able to safely and effectively remove Moles / Bumps with minimal damage to surrounding skin tissue - shortening recovery time and minimising the risk of scarring.
Depending on size, the procedure takes between 10 to 15 minutes per mole / bump with immediate results. Healing may take between 1 to 2 weeks depending on the size of the mole / bump removed.
Should the mole or skin tag be too large or deep, Dr Edwin may choose to complete the procedure over 2 to 3 sessions to minimise the risk of complications such as scarring and infection.
In addition to mole and skin-tags, the eCO2 laser is able to effectively remove other common types of skin bumps such as warts, sebaceous hyperplasia and seborrheic keratosis.

Before starting the procedure, a strong numbing cream will be applied if there are multiple bumps to be removed.
For the removal of large moles / bumps which may be more invasive, Dr Edwin prefers to give an injection of local anesthesia.
After numbing cream / local anesthesia, the procedure is nearly painless!
During the procedure, the mole / bump is removed precisely in layers by the CO2 laser. Dr Edwin will strive to remove as much of the mole / bump during the procedure as possible whilst maintaining excellent cosmetic results.
Should the procedure be too invasive, Dr Edwin prefers to perform the removal over several sessions to minimise the risk of scarring.
Post-procedure, we recommend that patients apply an antibiotic cream, recovery cream and scar-gel for best results. Dr Edwin will review you 1 month after the procedure to assess the recovery and the need for a second session.
