Mole removal, sounds scary right! There is nothing to fear, numbing creams makes mole removal manageable! When your doctor tells you that you need a mole removed, panic sets in. First you think is it cancerous? Second you think this is really gonna hurt. You might have even put off the mole removal because you fear the pain of having it removed.
Mole Removal Techniques:
- Cutting it off. Some moles can be “shaved” off flush with the skin. Other moles may have cells that go underneath the skin, so your doctor might make a deeper cut to remove the entire mole and prevent it from growing back. This cut may require stitches.
- Freezing it with liquid nitrogen. Your doctor will swab or spray a small amount of super-cold liquid nitrogen on the mole. You might have a small blister where the mole was, but it will heal on its own.
- Burning it off. An electric current passes through a wire that becomes hot and is used to burn off the upper layers of the skin. You may need more than one treatment to remove a mole.
Moles can be a serious health risk and fear should not stop you from getting them removed. Ease your mind and alleviate the pain of the mole removal procedure with numbing cream.
