We are able to confirm the diagnosis of benign skin lesions such as warts, sun spots, mole, skin tag etc. and discuss the best way to remove them by minor skin surgery or laser to achieve the best cosmetic outcome.

Dr Jinah Yoo Dermatology provides consultation and treatment for benign skin lesions only.

Laser Removal

Some pigmented lesions can be removed with laser treatment.

The laser uses light energy to break down the pigment within the mole.

Laser mole removal is a good option for removing a mole from the face as there is less risk of scarring.

However, if there is a personal or family history of skin cancer, this method is not advised.

Shave Removal

Skin lesions that protrude from the skin can be ‘shaved’ off after a numbing injection.

This is usually done using a blade and the wound base is burnt off with a hot diathermy to stop any bleeding vessels.

May be left with a pink mark on your skin where the mole was, but this should fade over time.

Excision Removal

Some deeper seated skin lesions may need to be cut away in an ellipse shape.

This procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and requires few stitch to close the wound.

A small linear scar will be left, which can fade over time or improved with laser subsequently.
