The Blog Mole Removal Healing: Pictures & Aftercare

Contrary to popular belief, mole removal does not have to be synonymous with scarring. 

Here at Contour Clinics, we offer our patients a highly effective method for mole removal that uses laser technology as opposed to surgery, to achieve a flawless result, fast. 

Traditional mole removal involves excision, stitches, and restriction of movement post-procedure, which can be uncomfortable, painful and inconvenient. 

Not only that, but it almost always leaves behind a scar. Even if this scar fades over time, it will usually always exist. 

Our mole removal treatment does not cut the skin in order to remove moles. Instead, it uses TempSure radiofrequency (RF) technology to eradicate moles at skin surface level. 

Take a look at our mole removal healing pictures, where you can see how effective our scarless mole removal technique can be for achieving a clean outcome. 

Another positive outcome of our scarless method is that there is very little mole removal aftercare required, compared to surgical mole removal. 

You do NOT have to live with unwanted moles, and there is no reason to settle for scarring as an outcome of removing them. 

Mole Removal Healing

Our scarless mole removal treatment is a radiofrequency ablation that uses a concentrated cutting beam of energy to remove the mole. This beam is 1,000 times more precise than a scalpel. 

With such pinpoint accuracy, this method makes it possible to remove lesions, lumps, bumps and moles without causing a scar. 

With the treatment area under local anaesthetic, the electrode removes the mole and coagulates the skin at the same time, so there is minimal to no bleeding. 

The result is no trace of the mole and – very exciting – no scar! 

A dressing is then applied to the site, and a scab will form where the mole was removed.  

This scab will fall off after about a week, leaving behind clear skin, and zero remnants of the mole. 

Mole Removal Aftercare

For the results of your mole removal to be optimal, it’s crucial that you follow the correct at-home aftercare following your procedure. 

The steps are simple but important…

  • Don’t allow the wound to completely dry out because this can risk a scar forming. 
  • Keep the wound covered for 3-5 days with dressing (we recommend Duoderm extra-thin). But keep it covered for 2 weeks if it’s under clothing. 
  • Change your dressing at least every 3 days, and re-apply your antibiotic ointment (we recommend Chlorsig) when you do.
  • After 5 days, when you don’t need the dressings anymore, just apply the ointment 4 times a day for 2 weeks. 
  • Don’t expose the treated area to direct sun. 
  • Once the area has healed, it’s vital that you protect the new skin with SPF 50+ sunscreen or zinc. 
  • After 4 weeks you can massage the area with some moisturiser or body butter to reduce the chance of scar tissue forming. 

As long as you follow these guidelines for aftercare, you should have a smooth, successful outcome from your scarless mole removal treatment. 

Mole Removal Recovery Time

Overall, from the time of your procedure, right through until the point of being completely and fully healed, the timeframe is generally about 6–8 weeks.

The recovery period, however, is only about two weeks – this is the timeframe for your immediate healing and aftercare following the mole removal, where the treated site still needs some care and attention. 

Following the two-week period where your treated area is doing its primary healing, the next few weeks are where the skin begins to do its long-term healing.
