Mole Removal in London

Moles are an accumulation of cells called melanocytes that darken the colouring of the skin. When these cells cluster together, they form dark, sometimes raised marks. Moles, skin tags, and lesions are extremely common and usually harmless, but in some cases melanoma – a type of skin cancer – can develop, especially when the moles are not protected from the damage caused by UV rays.

To permanently remove moles, many patients opt for a specialised mole removal surgery as a way to safely remove moles via a short, non-invasive treatment. The most common mole removal techniques are laser removal, excisional surgery, or electrocautery.

Our doctor-led team of cosmetic practitioners have performed countless mole removal procedures and consistently achieve excellent results, so you can feel confident our doctors will remove moles swiftly and thoroughly, leaving minimal scarring.

Mole Removal Treatment

Laser Removal

One of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to have a mole removed is via laser removal. The CREO Clinic uses the Fotona Dynamis Pro to apply the ablative Er:YAG laser directly to your mole, quickly destroying the tissue – often in a single session. One of the main benefits of laser removal is its ability to remove moles quickly without the need for any surgical cuts, but it also leaves minimal scarring, does not require anaesthesia, and reduces the risk of infection.

Shave Removal

A shave removal involves applying anaesthetic to raised moles and then using a precise surgical technique to plane the mole down to the level of the skin. This is a short and minimally invasive technique that is often used when the mole is raised. 

In general, we prefer to opt for the laser method of mole removal due to its ability to precisely target the mole, and avoid damage to the surrounding skin.

Excision Removal

An excision mole removal procedure, sometimes known as an ellipse removal, uses targeted cuts to remove your more in one short surgery. Once removed, the edges of the resulting gap in the skin are brought together with dissolvable stitches, leaving a small, fine line scar that should fade from visibility over time.


This technique consists of applying an electrical current to your mole in order to destroy the tissue and remove it permanently. This is a relatively painless, short and effective method of mole removal. However, the alternative laser method is more accurate and therefore preferable.

Mole Removal Cost in London

What to Expect from a Mole Removal Procedure

The procedure of mole removal using the Fotona Er:YAG laser generally takes place over a single session. First you will be positioned in a way that allows our practitioner easy access to your mole or moles, then the targeted heat of the Er:YAG laser is applied to the mole, gradually removing it without damaging the surrounding skin.

An excisional mole removal generally takes less than 10 minutes to perform, depending on the size of the mole; larger moles may require more than one session. The mole is removed by the surgeon, and the resulting gap is closed using dissolvable sutures. Bandages are then applied to ensure wound hygiene and optimal healing.

Laser and excisional mole removal are well-tolerated procedures, especially in the hands of well-trained, experienced Aesthetic Doctors. Both excisional surgery and laser treatment cause minimal discomfort. 

After the treatment, you can return to work and your daily routine immediately, with no need for time off work. However, you will need to follow the post-treatment instructions provided by your surgeon – particularly those related to wound hygiene and protection from UV rays.

Types of Moles We Can Remove

Jagged Border Moles

A normal, healthy mole typically has a smooth border with little asymmetry – moles with jagged borders can indicate the existence of melanoma. Moles with jagged borders can be removed by laser or excision, but should first be checked by a doctor.

Uneven Coloured Mole

Another common indicator of melanoma is the appearance of different shades or colours within a mole. Melanomas can have a range of colours from brown to black, red, blue, or white. An uneven coloured or suspicious mole could present a cancer risk and should be seen as soon as possible by a specialist.

Larger Moles

The larger the mole, the more likely the risk of melanoma in the future. Generally a healthy mole will be 6 mm or less in diameter, so be sure to have larger moles checked by a doctor. Larger moles can also cause aesthetic concerns, and cosmetic mole removal can often enhance the appearance of the area in which it sits.

Evolving Moles

Should you see a change in the appearance of your mole – in its colour, size, bleeding, hair growth or in its texture, this can be a cause for concern and is worth either getting examined by a doctor or removing. Keep track of any changes in your moles by monitoring them regularly.

    Any adult who is interested in removing a mole for aesthetic or medical reasons can be a good candidate for mole removal treatment. Ideal candidates for the laser mole removal method are those with smaller, noncancerous moles, whereas patients with a clinical need for mole removal – as in the case of a melanoma – may be better suited to an excision.

    Mole Removal Recovery & Aftercare

    Downtime after a laser mole removal is non-existent – you can return to work and your daily routine immediately. You will need to follow steps to ensure the treatment area is kept clean, hygienic and protected from UV rays.

    In the case of an excision, downtime is also minimal, but your practitioner will provide instructions on how to care for your incision to protect from infection and optimise wound healing. The area should be kept clean and protected from sunlight, and you should try to avoid putting pressure on or stretching the area.

    Cosmetic Vs. Medical Mole Removal

    The vast majority of medical mole removal will be done by excision, as this is the fastest and safest way to remove a malignant mole. If a mole is being removed for purely cosmetic reasons, laser treatment may prove to be a less invasive and more cost-effective procedure.

    During your initial consultation with our skin specialist, they will identify the best technique for removing moles for you given your medical history and aesthetic goals.

      Mole Removal FAQs

      Will Removing a Mole Leave a Scar?

      Surgical mole removal will leave a very small fine line scar that should become less visible over time. Laser mole removal may leave a very small scar, but in some cases there will be almost no trace of the removal.

      Is Mole Removal Permanent?

      Any form of mole removal is permanent, although in rare cases moles can reappear. 

      Does Mole Removal Hurt?

      Mole removal is relatively painless. Topical anaesthetic is applied in a surgical removal, and can be applied before laser removal if the patient is sensitive to pain – this minimises any discomfort.
