Use Natural RemediesMost people try to deal with their moles by trying out natural home remedies. Products like honey, garlic and apple cider vinegar are popular among people who wish to get their moles removed at the convenience of their homes. These products are applied directly to the mole, causing the mole to dry and come off on its own. This, however, is a very slow process and it can take weeks before results can become noticeable. In most cases, natural remedies don’t work at all so it can be a waste of your time and energy.
Try Mole Removal CreamsLess expensive as compared to other treatments but more effective than natural remedies, mole removal creams are yet another effective means of getting rid of moles at the convenience of your home. These creams are available in abundance at drug stores and can be easily purchased for a few dollars. These creams usually work by lightening the mole until it vanishes completely. You’ll, however, have to wait for a couple of weeks before you can see the final results.
Go for Surgical TreatmentsSurgical removal of a mole is usually the best way to get rid of a mole for once and all. There are a number of available techniques that you can choose, however, the decision of which technique to opt for should be left to a certified medical practitioner. Visit a surgeon who specializes in mole removal and he’ll be best able to guide you on which technique will be best for you. Usually, he’ll suggest one of the following methods.
- Excision – This is a surgical procedure that involves a surgeon using a scalpel to cut the mole out entirely. Some bordering good skin is also removed in the procedure and then the physician cauterizes or uses stitches to close the wound back. This is usually done for larger moles and it results in an instant removal of the mole.
- Cryotherapy (Freezing) – This is a very quick treatment during which a medical professional applies a special solution (usually argon gas or liquid nitrogen) onto the mole, either through a spray device, injection or a cotton swab. This causes ice crystals to form within the mole, breaking up the mole tissue cells and causing no damage to the surrounding skin cells. The mole usually vanishes, leaving behind no trail of scarring.
- Laser Treatment – A mole that is flat and black or brown in color can be most effectively removed through a laser treatment. The procedure involves applying a local anesthetic on the area where the mole is found and then using laser beams to remove the mole tissues. Usually, two to three treatment sessions are needed to get rid of the mole completely. However, this treatment isn’t usually appropriate for moles that are very large or that which protrude above the skin.
