There may be an autumnal breeze sweeping through the streets of London today, but many are returning or have just returned from a holiday in the sun. With the change in weather, it is easy to forget to maintain your skin, but it is so important that you stay on top of it.
The most important thing to monitor is mutation of moles. If left exposed to harmful UVA and UVB rays, they can develop into harmful, cancerous skin growths, which in turn can spread throughout the lymph nodes.
Tracking your moles is so simple and can be done at home. Just look out for these tell-tale signs:
- Change in size
- Colour alteration
- Mutation in shape
- Satellite moles (moles that appear around others in a circular formation)
- The edges of the mole are crooked or blurred
If you suspect any changes or anything suspicious with your moles, it is important that you get them checked out by a Melanoma specialist as soon as possible.
At PHI Clinic, we offer a wide range of removal methods, both surgical and non-surgical. Indeed, there are methods that provide minimal scarring mole removal.
A frequent question that is asked with regards to mole removal, is whether or not the procedure will cause scarring. With any surgical procedure, it is impossible to guarantee no scarring whatsoever, but our specialists can do their utmost to ensure safe removal, with minimal scarring. Mr Apul Parikh has performed many facial mole removals in the UK, meaning he is particularly skilled at removing growths in difficult and visible areas. He always ensures that scarring is kept to a minimum and blended with hairlines and facial features, if possible.
Likewise, non-surgical removals are great for minimal scarring, as a laser device is used to target both the volume of the mole and the colour of the growth. This is an extremely safe and effective method for minimal scarring mole removal.
If you would like to book in your mole check and discuss with PHI’s resident consultant plastic surgeon, Mr Apul Parikh, all your options with regards to removal, please call 0207 034 5999 today.
